- The Huracan Evo is a next big thing after the Performante.
- Comes with aggressive aero treatment with ALA and all-wheel steering
- The Huracan gets a touchscreen system for the first time.
Just a couple of days after the elusive teaser, Lamborghini has revealed the all-new Huracan Evo. The new Huracan Evo takes over where the Huracan Performante left and carries over many hardware from the ‘Ring record holder. Lamborghini says, that the Huracan Evo incorporates next-generation vehicle dynamic control and aerodynamics.
The powertrain remains unchanged since the Performante, so the Evo is powered by the same 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 engine with titanium intake valves and lightweight exhaust system. The Huracan Evo puts out 640bhp at 8,000rpm with 600Nm of torque. With a dry weight of 1,422 kgs, the Evo can clock 0-100kmph in 2.9 seconds with a top speed of more than 325kmph.
The Evo comes fitted with what the Italian carmaker calls LDVI (Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata). This hardware includes four-wheel steering (from the Aventador S) and torque vectoring system. The Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI) is in its second version and controls the lateral, longitudinal and vertical accelerations, as well as roll, pitch and yaw rate of the Baby Lambo. Apart from that, the Enhanced Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) is also present which, in simple terms, is active steering. There is the same ANIMA drive controller with Strada, Sport and Corsa modes.
Appearance wise, the Huracan Evo gets a new front splitter with an integrated wing. The air-intake gets a Ypsilon shape making the Huracan so much better looking and aggressive at the same time. The twin exhaust tips sticking out at the back is same as on the Performante, only larger, and now there are more aggressive (racecar-like) diffusers at the back along with a petite duck-lip spoiler. There is a new engine cover as well along with newly-designed 20-inch Aesir Y-spoke alloy wheels both of which add fresh appeal to the Evo.
Another important update on the Huracan Evo is the 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system sitting above the start button in the cabin. It is the same unit which was seen on the Centenario and this makes the cabin so much more extravagant. It also comes with smartphone integration, voice command and navigation but dual camera telemetry and hard disk come as an optional extra. The cabin gets dedicated Evo trim in Alcantara and leather with Arancio Dryope detailing.
Pricing for the Lamborghini Huracan Evo is 165,256 pounds in the UK. It will make its India debut soon, perhaps in the next few months. Stay tuned to CarWale for more details.
