- The Huracan Evo was revealed early this year as the next update after the Performante.
- It underwent aggressive aero treatment with ALA and all-wheel steering and a touchscreen system for the first time.
Lamborghini will launch the new Huracan Evo in India on 7 January, barely a month after its global debut. The new Huracan Evo is the next best thing after the Huracan Performante and it gets all the hardware from this Nurburgring record holder besides next-generation vehicle dynamic control and aerodynamics. Moreover, the Evo also debuts a touchscreen infotainment system in Huracan for the first time.
Contrary to earlier rumours, the Evo has retained the same powertrain housed in the Performante. This is essentially a 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, the same figures as the Performante. 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 LDVI (Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata) as standard. This hardware includes four-wheel steering (from the Aventador S) and torque vectoring system. Meanwhile, the Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI) is in its second version and it 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) has also been passed down from the Aventador S. The LDS, in simple terms, is active steering. There is the same ANIMA drive controller with Strada, Sport and Corsa modes available in the Aventador.
Appearance wise, the Huracan Evo gets a new lip-splitter with a sleek front wing. The air-intake now has an Ypsilon design which makes the Huracan look far more aggressive than before. The twin exhaust tips sticking out at the back are same as on the Performante, only larger, and now there are more aggressive racecar-like diffusers at the back. However, instead of a big wing at the back, there is 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 tablet-like 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system sitting above the famous start switch. It is the same unit which was seen on the Centenario. 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.
When launched in India, the Lamborghini Huracan Evo is expected to be priced around Rs 4 crore (ex-showroom).
