Last week Automobili Lamborghini released images of the new Huracán EVO V10 super sports car.
Featuring the 5.2 I naturally-aspirated Lamborghini V10 engine, uprated to produce higher power output and an emotional and powerful sound, the supercar outputs 640hp at 8,000rpm, 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 0-100 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 m, with a top speed of more than 325 km/h.
Featuring new Lamborghini rear-wheel steering and a torque vectoring system working on the four wheels, 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, fully integrating all of the car’s dynamic systems and set-up to anticipate the next move and needs of the driver.
The new super sports car’s distinctive design defines the aerodynamic superiority and enhanced driving dynamics of the Huracán EVO, with a new front bumper giving the car a low, assertive personality.
The side profile of the Huracán EVO is articulately dynamic, featuring Lamborghini’s hexagon design references in the windows, the new wheel design and around the new side air intakes.
It is at the rear of the car that the Huracán EVO most distinctively evokes the power and dynamism that lies within. Reflecting the wide, open, naked rear 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 airflow, clearly asserting the car’s aerodynamic abilities.
On the interior, a new 8.4″ HMI capacitive touchscreen, located in the centre console just above the start button, puts connectivity at the driver’s fingertips, with multi-finger gesture control.
Governing car functions including seats, climate and the status of the LDVI system in real-time it also puts all infotainment, such as Apple CarPlay with smartphone integration, at the cabin occupants’ disposal. A multimedia system incorporates connected navigation and entertainment including web radio and video player.
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.
“Lamborghini is intent on leading the advance to the highest level of super sports car technologies and driving emotion. This is the essence of the new Huracán EVO, says Stefano Domenicali, chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.
“The Huracán EVO is the very definition of evolution: it is a step ahead, redefining the segment parameters. It is remarkably easy to drive, while delivering the most responsive, sensory and agile driving experience, in every environment.”
