Lamborghini has revealed the new Huracán EVO, with the Italian brand’s next generation V10 sports car getting an updated design for “improved aerodynamics”.
Key changes include a new front bumper that further incorporates an integrated wing complete with enlarged Y-shaped air intakes, while the side profile features hexagon design references in the windows, the new 20″ wheel design and around the new side air intakes.
At the back, the twin outlets of the new sports exhaust system are positioned high up in the car’s rear bumper. At the upper end of the tail an integrated, slotted spoiler is claimed to provide enhanced air flow.
Complete with a revised underbody, the new Huracán EVO is said to improve downforce and aerodynamic efficiency “more than five times” over the first generation Huracán.
In terms of power, the car’s 5.2 litre V10 engine delivers 631 bhp at 8,000 rpm with 443 lb-ft of torque delivered at 6,500 rpm. Acceleration from 0-62 mph is claimed to take just 2.9 seconds and from 0-124 mph in 9.0 seconds (braking from 62 mph to 0 is achieved in 31.9 metres). Top speed is listed at “more than” 201 mph.
Achieving a dry weight of 1,422 kg, the refreshed Huracán also gets a new rear-wheel steering and a torque vectoring system working on the four wheels, while at the heart of the car is the new feature of Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI): a CPU that integrates all of the car’s dynamic systems and set-up.
The interior, meanwhile, sees the introduction of a new 8.4″ capacitive touchscreen, located in the centre console just above the start button. An optional dual-camera telemetry system is also offered via the touchscreen, allowing advanced telemetry recording and analysis. Additional cabin details include a dedicated new EVO trim in Alcantara and leather mix.
“The Huracán EVO is the very definition of evolution: it is a step ahead, redefining the segment parameters. It is remarkably easy to drive, while delivering the most responsive, sensory and agile driving experience, in every environment,” says Lamborghini boss, Stefano Domenicali.
