Lamborghini will measure your heartbeat as you slide on the track.

Wealthy supercar owners can now record their best track sessions to allow remote coaches to follow them in real-time. And, of course, with biometric data.

Lamborghini has announced new telemetry features that allow supercar owners to keep a better track of their lightning-fast cars and themselves.


The automaker has unveiled Telemetry X, its new real-time performance and biometric data monitoring system, at CES in Las Vegas. The system comprises various features, including Remote Garage, Biometric Data, and Digital Co-Pilot, enabling affluent supercar owners to keep a better track of their laps on the track.

Remote Garage essentially serves as a remote training function, enabling a 5G cellular connection to send real-time footage, images, and data to a coach "anywhere in the world" who can offer advice to improve your track time. I can see how this feature could be beneficial for racing enthusiasts who consider their supercars more than just expensive toys. Lamborghini sees it as "ensuring driving fun based on a user-friendly approach."

If you prefer to monitor your own blood pressure, Lamborghini is also introducing the Biometric Data System, which records driver biometric data, "including heart rate and stress level, to enable more in-depth performance monitoring and provide helpful insights on perfecting your training."

Biometric data is collected through a wearable prototype device, a Lamborghini spokesperson said. "The wearable device helps explore the various possibilities of biometric sensors and data streaming technology to anticipate what might be possible in the future," they added.

Some race car drivers are known to monitor their physical performance when racing on the track. They use biometric devices to track heart rate, body temperature, oxygen levels, stress, and fatigue. The world's fastest cars can be incredibly stressful to handle, especially at breakneck speeds. Aerodynamic forces alone can exceed 1,000 pounds, making it a feat of strength to navigate a fast vehicle like a Lamborghini Huracan on the track.

Race and driving data are sent to the vehicle's "Digital Co-Pilot," which the company describes as a "proactive voice assistant." (Kudos to Lamborghini for not mentioning anything about AI in its release, despite the obvious temptation).

"For example, the Digital Co-Pilot analyzes lap times and provides helpful suggestions for improving driving lines and braking points, as well as information on the car's performance on the track," the company says.

Lamborghini first introduced its telemetry feature with the Huracán STO in 2020. Drivers could monitor their statistics using the company's mobile app, Unica.

People already allow their smartwatches to monitor heart rate and blood oxygen levels, so there's no reason to think they would object to doing the same with their sports cars. Especially considering that the Venn diagram of people who own Apple Watches and people who own Lamborghinis is probably just a circle.

Lamborghini is scheduled to deliver its first hybrid sports car to customers this year, followed by its first all-electric car in 2028.
