An Italian ‘Huracan’ of devastation is ready to dominate all other cars on the road.
Lamborghini has evolved the Huracan, its smallest and least expensive supercar, giving it the Evo moniker, some styling updates, more power and several new tech features.
Under the hood, engineers revised the naturally-aspirated 5.2L V10 to generate 630 horsepower (470 kW) and 443 lb-ft. (600 Nm) of torque, giving drivers an additional 10-horsepower to work with.
In fact, the Huracan EVO puts out as much power as the track-ready Huracan Performante that released in 2017, and with a dry weight of only 3,135 pounds (1,422 kilograms), can accelerate to 62 mph (100 km/h) in only 2.9 seconds and to 124 mph (200 km/h) in 9.0 seconds before reaching a top speed over 202 mph (325 km/h).
The extra power is complimented by an upgraded suspension featuring adaptive dampers that can be adjusted instantly and a new traction control system that can send all power to one wheel if needed. As with previous Huracans, rear-wheel steering and a four-wheel torque vectoring system come standard.
Visually, the Huracan EVO doesn’t change much but keen car spotters will notice its Performante-inspired rear end, particularly the redesigned rear spoiler and exhaust tips that have been moved further up to make room for a diffuser that stretches nearly the entire width of the car.
A front splitter with an integrated wing not only makes the front end look a tad bit more aggressive, but it also improves the Italian supercar’s aerodynamics. New 20-inch alloy wheels in the Aesir design and reshaped air intakes on the sides round out the aesthetic upgrades.
Inside, the Huracan EVO gets a new 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay compatibility and multi-finger gestures controls that lets you adjust just about everything, including the
climate control settings and seats. Voice commands and an optional dual-camera telemetry system for track days are also available .
The Lamborghini Huracan EVO touches land in spring 2019. A starting price of $261,274 means you probably won’t be able to afford one, but is this a car you wish of owning one day? Let us know in the comments below.
