The new Lamborghini Huracan Evo has arrived with aerodynamic refinements and rear-wheel steering.
Lamborghini continues to refine their current generation of supercars with the latest version of the Huracan, called the “EVO”. What the EVO brings is new and improved aerodynamic elements, new electronic stability control, and new rear-wheel steering to make this the most agile and responsive Huracan ever made.
Starting under the hood, the EVO gets the same engine as found on the latest Huracan Performante. That means a tuned version of the 5.2-L V10 producing 640 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque. Zero to sixty is done in just 2.9 seconds on its way to a top speed of 202 mph. Power is routed to all wheels thanks to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, and dry weight is mentioned to be just 3135 lbs.
But the big addition to the powertrain is rear-wheel steering and improved torque vectoring. By turning the rear wheels along with the front wheels, the Huracan vastly improves its cornering ability at both low and high speeds. A brand new processing unit, called Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI), “controls every aspect of the car’s dynamic behavior, fully integrating all of the car’s dynamic systems and set-up to anticipate the next move and needs of the driver, interpreting this into perfect driving dynamics."
A set of refined versions of the Huracan’s magnetic adaptive dampers complete the car’s handling updates.
In addition, the Huracan EVO adds improved aerodynamic elements, such as a new front bumper with improved front splitter, underbody aero refinements, and a new integrated rear spoiler. All these elements improve the EVO’s downforce and aerodynamic efficiency five times over the original Huracan.
Best of all is the EVO’s new 8.4-inch infotainment system. The old screen was starting to look a little dated, but the new one includes everything you’d expect in a modern infotainment touchscreen. Apple CarPlay, navigation, and a web radio player are all standard, but also available is a new dual-camera telemetry system to record your data at the track.
The Huracan EVO is priced at $261,274 USD, with deliveries starting this spring.
