The Lamborghini has officially launched the refreshed Huracan 'Evo' in India, just a few weeks after its global debut. The Baby Lambo now has new tricks up its sleeves both in terms of looks and technology. Priced at Rs 3.73 crore (ex-showroom) the Evo is the newest iteration of the Huracan and will, in all probability, be our next bedroom wallpaper. Here's everything there is to know about the all-new Lamborghini Huracan Evo.
No change of heart:
When we saw the test mules of the Huracan Evo undergoing tests, there were rumours abound of a bump in power output of the 5.2-litre V10 over the Performante’s. The ‘Ring holder puts out 631bhp of max power at a screaming 8,000rpm and 600Nm of twisting force. Sporting the same figures with a weight of 1,422 kgs, the Evo is capable of clocking 0-100kmph in 2.9 seconds and the top speed remains the same 325kmph. The Performante has a raucous exhaust note, so the repositioned lightweight manifold should make the Evo sound even better.
The Huracan Evo adopts all the goodies from the Aventador and Performante. So now it has four-wheel steering and torque vectoring system. Part of the LDVI (Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata), the former is taken from the Aventador S, while the latter was part of the Performante. The second-generation of Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI) is part of the package and it controls the lateral, longitudinal and vertical accelerations, as well as roll, pitch and yaw rate. Apart from that, the active steering system called the Enhanced Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) is also present. Then there is the usual ANIMA drive controller placed in the centre console with three drive modes – Strada, Sport and Corsa.
If looks could kill:
The Huracan is already a good looking Raging Bull even in its standard guise. Then the Performante breaks all shackles in terms of aero and aggression. Meanwhile, the Evo takes everything up a notch. There is the newly designed Ypsilon-shaped front splitter with an integrated wing. The twin circular exhaust tips sticking out at the back is the same as on the Performante, only larger. The massive rear wing of the Performante is gone and in comes a petite duck-lip spoiler. But to make up for the absence of the spoiler drama, the rear has contrasting racecar-like diffusers. Lamborghini has also installed a new engine cover while the Evo sits on stylish 20-inch Aesir Y-spoke alloy wheels.
When Lamborghini launched the Huracan in 2014, the cabin was sans any screen in the well-laid out centre console to keep things timeless. Now with the Evo, the touchscreen has debuted in the Huracan and it is the same unit which was seen in the expensive Centenario. This system also comes with smartphone integration, voice command and navigation and it gets dual camera telemetry and hard disk as an optional fitment.
Cheaper than the Performante:
The new Lamborghini Huracan Evo is the seventh variant of the Gallardo-replacement in India. And what’s more, it is cheaper than the ‘Ring record holder, the Performante, and way cheaper than the LP610-4 Spyder. Speaking of Spyder, the Huracan Evo Spyder will surely debut sometime in the next few months, with a prompt Indian debut too. The Evo might be the last major update for the Huracan until its replacement arrives in a couple of years’ time. In India, it goes up against the likes of Porsche 911, Ferrari 488, Audi R8, Mercedes-Benz AMG GT, and Maserati GranTurismo.
