A month after its international launch, the new Lamborghini Huracán EVO has been introduced in India. An evolution of the successful Huracán Performante, it comes with new technologies and a new design for improved aerodynamics, and registers better performance numbers than its predecessor. The price? INR 3.73 crores* is what you will have to shell out for this new baby.
The next generation super sports car, Huracán EVO is much more agile, light and nimble than its predecessor. It features the 5.2L naturally-aspirated Lamborghini V10 engine, updated to produce higher power output and better sound, thanks to its Titanium intake valves and a lightweight exhaust system.
For any Lambo fan, the presence and purpose of the brand lies not just in design, but also in the notes from its exhaust. And this one doesn’t disappoint with its exhaust sound reflecting the increased power and dynamic abilities of this latest piece of tech on wheels.
The Huracán EVO outputs 640 hp (470 kW) at 8,000 rpm with 600 Nm of torque delivered at 6,500 rpm. With a dry weight of 1,422 kg the Huracán EVO reaches a weight-to-power ratio of 2.22 kg/hp, accelerates from 0 to100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and from 0-200 km/h in 9.0 seconds. Braking from 100 km/h to 0 is achieved in just 31.9 metres, with a top speed of more than 325 km/h.
The Huracán EVO features the new Lamborghini 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 Central Processing Unit that controls every aspect of the car’s dynamic behaviour to anticipate the next move and needs of the driver.
Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI), a comprehensive set of accelerators and gyroscope sensors placed at the car’s centre of gravity, has been enhanced to version 2.0. With improved precision, it monitors in real-time the dynamic vehicle attitude regarding lateral, longitudinal and vertical accelerations, as well as roll, pitch and yaw rate. The magneto rheological suspension, upgraded to version 2.0, instantaneously adapts the damping following inputs from the LPI. A new advanced traction control system together with enhanced all-wheel drive and torque vectoring, allows traction to be directed to a single wheel as required.
Enhanced Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS), provides higher responsiveness in corners while requiring the lowest steering angles. It is coupled with rear-wheel steering in order to ensure agility at low speed, as well as maximum stability in high-speed cornering and under braking in the most severe conditions.
The unique combination of all these systems is governed by Lamborghini’s LDVI to create a super-agile and responsive car with a greater level of control. Processing data in real time, the Huracán EVO recognises the driver’s intentions through steering wheel, brake and accelerator pedal inputs, engaged gear and the driving modes selected: STRADA, SPORT or CORSA.
External conditions are determined through active suspension and all-wheel drive grip estimation function. All of this information is analysed and processed by LDVI, which turns them into precise inputs for the vehicle dynamic system. 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.
In STRADA, the Huracán EVO is agile and capable; in SPORT it becomes playful, intuitive and exciting; whereas in CORSA the Huracán EVO is sharp, reactive and exhilarating for extreme driving environments, such as racetracks.
The distinctive design features a new front bumper that gives the car a low, assertive personality, but assures aerodynamic efficiency via the front splitter with integrated wing. The enlarged air intakes feature the Ypsilon shape that is inherent in Lamborghini design DNA. The side profile of the Huracán EVO is dynamic, featuring trademark hexagon design references in the windows, the new wheel design and around the new side air intakes.
The rear evokes the power and dynamism that lies within. Reflecting the wide, open, naked rear seen in its race-car brother, 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 provides enhanced air flow, clearly asserting the car’s aerodynamic abilities.
The Huracán EVO’s aero competency continues with the underbody, which has been shaped to maximise aerodynamic efficiency, improving downforce and aerodynamic efficiency more than five times over the first generation Huracán.
In terms of connectivity, there is a new 8.4” HMI capacitive touchscreen, located in the centre console just above the start button, with multi-finger gesture control. Governing car functions including seats, climate and the status of the LDVI system in real-time, it also aggregates all infotainment, such as Apple CarPlay with smartphone integration. A multimedia system incorporates connected navigation and entertainment including web radio and video player. The intuitive interface allows voice commands and puts the driver in touch with Siri.
An optional dual-camera telemetry system is also offered via the touchscreen, allowing advanced telemetry recording and analysis. An integrated high-capacity hard disk is also available.
The Huracán EVO is presented in a new four-layer color, Arancio Xanto. New 20” Aesir rims, dedicated to the EVO, are complemented by Pirelli P Zero tires. The interior features a dedicated new EVO trim in Alcantara and leather mix, with Arancio Dryope details matching the body tone.
The new sporty and elegant trim, features a number of bi-colour and trim options as well as a highly sportive Alcantara option. Lightweight materials such as Carbon Forged Composites and Lamborghini’s patented Carbon Skin are available on request, and are highlighted by the new customisable ambient lights feature within the cabin.
Both the exterior and interior of the Huracán EVO are designed to maximise the specification possibilities, with several new options such as a wide range of Style Packs in shiny black and body colour as well as Lamborghini’s Ad Personam program, which offers virtually limitless opportunity for owners to customise their Lamborghini.
