Lamborghini has unveiled an updated variant of its Huracan supercar, dubbed the Evo. The headlines? Updated aerodynamics, Performante power, rear-wheel steering and more sophisticated dynamic control systems. The end result? A “sensory and agile driving experience,” reckons Lambo…
Visually there’s certainly an air of the track-focused Aventador SVJ about its updated snout. Out back, that high-up twin-pipe exhaust remains from the Performante, giving it the look of the Blancpain racer. A boot lip takes the place of the ALA wing found on the Performante.
Re-shaped intakes and Aesir design 20-inch alls wheels complete the overhaul of the ‘baby’ bull’s look.
Overall the design, both inside and out, is intended to maximise the scope for customisability. Specification programs like Lamborghini’s Ad Personam, Aston Martin’s Q and McLaren’s MSO are becoming increasingly popular, creating more and more opportunities for individualisation for buyers.
Sat amidships is the 640hp 5.2-litre V10 previously found in the Performante track-focused model, complete with titanium intake valves and a lightweight exhaust.
New to the Evo over the Performante is a rear-wheel steering system. This works in combination with advanced torque-vectoring and a battery of accelerators and gyroscopic sensors. Together they are unified by Lamborghini Dynamic Veicolo Integrata – Lamborghini’s new central processing unit.
All in, it could make for a driving experience that’s sharper still than that of the stupendous Performante track-oriented model.
Inside the Evo brings the Huracan well up to date, with a new vertical tablet-like 8.4” HMI capacitive touch screen. It’s Apple CarPlay compatible and envelopes much more of the car’s interior controls, including the seats and climate control. It can also display imagery from the optional dual-camera telemetry system.
All we need to know now is how much it costs. Happily, unlike for many supercar reveals, Lamborghini has come out with near-on global pricing for the Huracan Evo.
Excluding taxes, it’ll set you back £165,256 in the UK, $261,274 in the USA or Y29,843,274 if you’re in Japan. In China, taxes included, it’ll be RMB 3,298,100. Cars should be arriving with customers in time for summer 2019.
