"Alexa, meet my Huracan"
Lamborghini's affinity for innovation doesn't stop at four wheel steering, active aerodynamics, or the next best use for carbon fiber. They don't just attempt to make their cars easier to use, like starting up your car with your phone, or being able to see 360 degrees around your ride. Lamborghini is now integrating the 2020 Huracan Evo with Amazon Alexa. For those of you who live under a rock, the Amazon Echo System is a smart speaker that turns the user's voice into commands. It can search the internet, interact with smart home devices, set reminders, tell you jokes, and perform a plethora of other amazing things. The real question inside everyone's head, "but how can Alexa help me in my Huracan?" Alexa can change interior light colors, interact with Amazon music, open and close garage doors, manage the vehicle's climate control, access the cars telemetry, and even operate a navigation system. With these abilities, Alexa shall soon conquer the world. This is historic, right? Well actually, no. Manufacturers like Ford, Toyota, and even a fellow FCA brand, Audi have integrated Alexa. Though it's only available in select, top models of those brands.
Lamborghini claims that voice recognition may only be accessible during certain driving conditions. Does this mean that if I'm traveling at the top speed of 202 MPH than Alexa can't help me find the nearest gas station? This question is yet to be answered. Lamborghini also states that Alexa will vary by car model. Does this mean they plan to implement it in the Aventador? The Urus? All exciting questions! All I need to know is that Alexa can help me unleash 631 raging bulls on these roads, something I would of already done before, but now my hands don't have to leave the wheel.
This integration shows changes are coming to lamborghini, at a fast pace, even for a Lamborghini. 10 years ago lamborghini would of rejected the idea of using anything other than a naturally aspirated V12. Today, we have a twin-turbo V8 in the Urus, one that makes purists cry, and a hybrid Sian. Electrification and forced induction, now an integrated smart device. I don't know what those Audi reps are making Lamborghini do, but it's crazy. Watch out, a new Lamborghini is on the streets, and it's dangerous.
