Lamborghini Huracan EVO Debuts as a Mid-Cycle Refresh for the V10 Supercar
After releasing a few teasers, Lamborghini has finally unveiled the Huracan EVO in full. The EVO is a mid-cycle refresh to the now five year old supercar and gains from advancements in aerodynamics and vehicle dynamic control developed on the Huracan Performante.
Inspiration from the Performante is visible outright on the design of the EVO. Starting from the front, there is new bumper that features an integrated wing on the front splitter, which not only gives the car a low, assertive personality, but also enhances aerodynamic efficiency. The air intakes now feature the Ypsilon shape that is inherent in Lamborghini design DNA. Perhaps the biggest inspiration from the Performante comes at the rear, with the wide, open, naked rear and the twin outlets that are positioned high up in the car’s rear bumper. There is also a new spoiler lip at the upper end of the tail to provide enhanced air flow. Also noticeable on the exterior are new 20-inch alloy wheels with Aesir design and the side air intakes that now feature single slats.
The engine itself is the same 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V10 that does its work on the Performante and produces 640 hp (470 kW) and 442 lb-ft of torque. Lamborghini also promises a new and powerful exhaust note by installing a new lightweight exhaust system with Titanium intake valves. With a dry weight of 1,422 kg, the Huracan EVO will accelerate from 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds and will go on to achieve a top speed of more than 202 mph.
Other important additions to the EVO include the adoption of rear-wheel steering for extra agility as well as a four-wheel torque vectoring system. The active suspension now features adaptable dampers and the all-wheel-drive system now supports power transfer to only one wheel.
Finally, the interior sees a new 8.4-inch touchscreen located in the center console which will allow the driver to control seats functions, climate control and the Apple CarPlay integration. The Huracan EVO will be available with a new four-layer color called Arancio Xanto – featured on the launch car.
Pricing for the Huracan EVO starts at $261,274 in the USA and £165,256 in the UK, with first deliveries starting in spring 2019.
