Upcoming Lamborghini Huracan EVO revealed
Lamborghini has updated the popular Huracan adding an Evo edition to be launched this Spring. Visually, the changes are evolutionary and, to many, subtle: Designers reshaped the front bumper and incorporated engineers’ front splitter and integrated wing. Similar work occurred in back, with a nod to the Huracan GT3 Evo race car with high mounted twin tailpipes and a new spoiler.
The V10 engine will be updated with titanium intake valves and a lightweight exhaust system. With these new parts and a retune, power increases to 631 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque, which matches Huracan Performante outputs. Lamborghini claims the Evo will match the Performante’s acceleration times of 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds, with 0-200km/h in just 9.0 seconds.
The Evo has four-wheel steering in addition to four-wheel drive, as well as torque vectoring. Rear-wheel steering is controlled by a computer called Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata, or LDVI, which makes use of a suite of sensors called Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale 2.0 to command all systems that help dynamic behavior. This includes things like traction and stability control, all-wheel-drive and torque vectoring.
The Evo now gets an 8.4-inch touchscreen that features Apple CarPlay as well as climate, media and navigation control with added gesture control. The first car will be available in spring 2019 and will cost around $265,000 with destination charge and taxes.
