Lamborghini Huracan replaces instrument panel with 12.3-inch Tegra-powered display


Lamborghini has decided to do away with physical dials in the new Huracan, instead opting to install a 12.3-inch display to act as the instrument panel. With such a high performance car you need those instruments to be very clear and react very quickly and smoothly to show the driver exactly what’s going on when they are going from 0-100km/h in 3.2 seconds.


The 12.3-inch display sports a resolution of 1440 x 540 and has been combined with a Nvidia Tegra 30 (3 series) processor. That means a smooth 60fps output and guaranteed “homogenous movement of the needle.” We don’t know specifically how Lamborghini has the Tegra chip setup, but it’s going to be a quad-core part running at up to 1.7GHz with 1MB of cache. The GPU is 12 cores and fully supports OpenGL ES 2.0.

By using a display instead of an actual panel, Lamborghini has also opened up the options for the driver. They actually have 3 different displays to choose from, called Full drive mode, Mixed mode, and Full Navi and Infotainment mode.
