This is the New Lamborghini Huracán Evo
If you’ve got your heart set on the facelifted Audi R8, maybe just hold fire for a second. Its Italian nemesis has officially unveiled images and details for the new Huracán. It’s called the ‘Evo’ and it’s had some pretty major reworkings. Here’s everything you need to know about the 2019 Lamborghini Huracán Evo.
From the outside, it’s clear that Lamborghini has borrowed some elements from the limited-run Huracan Performante. This includes the dual-exit exhaust system, which has been shifted up the car’s backside a little, and a more angular rear bumper design to get the aerodynamics working more efficiently.
There’s also a small wing sculpted into the engine cover and a new wheel rim design but mostly things are pretty much as they were. That said, it hasn’t stopped Lambo from claiming the Evo “improves downforce and aerodynamic efficiency more than five times over the first generation Huracán.”
But the Huracán Evo’s power output is where things get really interesting. The naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10 now matches the Huracán Performante’s figures of 631bhp and 443lb ft, resulting in a 0-62mph of 2.9 seconds and on to 124mph in nine seconds exactly. It’ll also reach 202mph if you put your put down on long straights.
So it looks and drives angrier. But Lambo are looking to break some records at Nürburgring, so there’s some snazzy on-board tech too. The new computer is rather sexily named Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata and it lets the four-wheel steering, stability control and torque-vectoring talk it out for optimum performance.
It’ll also somehow predict your future. Lamborghini claim “a ‘feed forward logic’ is implemented via the dynamic controller, which means the car doesn’t just react, but predicts the best driving set-up for the next moment.” We’re not sure how, or even really why, but it sounds fun to us!
Inside, the cockpit features a brand new cutting-edge 8.4” touchscreen system built into the central tunnel, which makes it possible to control the car and entertainment functions with a tap of your fingertips. There’s also some exclusive interior finishes, with the upholstery available in leather, Alcantara and something called ‘Carbon Skin’, a Lambo exclusive.
The Lamborghini Huracán Evo is due to hit the showrooms after making its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. It’s expected to set you back around £165,250. Find out more over at the Lambo Website.
