Lamborghini Huracan Evo is essentially a facelift of the Huracan and is only available in an AWD version.
Goes from 0-100kmph in 2.9 seconds.
Houses a 5.2-litre V10 that develops 640PS and 600Nm of torque.
Finally receives a touchscreen infotainment unit.
Lamborghini has launched the Huracan Evo in India at a price of Rs 3.73 crore (ex-showroom India), just a month after its global debut. It is a facelift of the regular Huracan, but with a healthy dose of changes not just visually, but also mechanically.
It receives updated, sharper exterior design, which is of course meant to improve aerodynamics. It also gets rear wheel steering, advanced traction control with torque vectoring and adaptive suspension which uses sensors to control pitch, yaw and roll of the car. On the inside, it finally receives a touchscreen unit, an 8.4-inch one at that, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It is also available with an optional dual-camera telemetry system.
Under the hood, the same 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 that has been there since the Gallardo days, continues to deliver 640PS@8,000rpm with a peak torque of 600Nm@6,500rpm. This engine is mated to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission that sends power to all four wheels.
For more details, here’s Lamborghini’s official statement:
Lamborqhini launches the New Lamborqhini Huracén EVO in India:
Elevation of technoloqies for amplified drivinq pleasure
• New design for improved aerodynamics
• First Lamborghini with predictive logic on vehicle dynamics control: fully-integrated Lamborghini Vehicle Dynamics Control System combined with all-wheel drive, all-wheel steering for redefined parameters of responsiveness, agility and easiness to drive
• Engine from the Huracán Performante with 640 hp and 600 Nm of torque
• New infotainment system with advanced connectivity features
Delhi, India, 7th February 2019 - Automobili Lamborghini launches the new Lamborghini Huracan EVO. The next generation V10 super sports car, based on the prowess and performance of the Huracén Performante and incorporating next-generation vehicle dynamic control and aerodynamics.
The Huracén EVO features the 5.2 I naturally-aspirated Lamborghini V10 engine, updated to produce higher power output and an emotional and powerful sound, with Titanium intake valves and refined lightweight exhaust system.
"The Huracén EVO is the very definition of evolution as it’s a step ahead in terms of redefining the segment parameters. Equipped with the finest and the purest, the Huracan EVO has already piqued the interest of Lamborghini owners in India. It is remarkably easy to drive, while delivering the most responsive, sensory and agile driving experience, in every environment." says Mr. Matteo Ortenzi, Chief Executive Officer at Automobili Lamborghini Asia Pacific.
The presence and purpose of the Huracan EVO resonates throughout its design, but also in the notes from its exhaust, with a super exhaust sound reflecting the increased power and dynamic abilities of this latest Lamborghini.
Technoloqical evolution amplifies drivinq emotion
The Huracan 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 Huracan 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.
Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI)
The Huracán EVO features 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, 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.
Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI), a comprehensive set of accelerators and gyroscope sensors placed at the car’s center 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.
Design – aerodynamic superiority
The distinctive design defines the aerodynamic superiority and enhanced driving dynamics of the Huracán EVO. A new front bumper gives the car a low, assertive personality, but more importantly 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.
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 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 maximize aerodynamic efficiency: the new integrated aerodynamic styling of the Huracán EVO improves downforce and aerodynamic efficiency more than five times over the first generation Huracán.
The presence and purpose of the Huracán EVO resonates throughout its design, but also in the notes from its exhaust, with a super exhaust sound reflecting the increased power and dynamic abilities of this latest Lamborghini.
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. 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.
Color/Trim and Lamborghini Ad Persona
The Huracán EVO is presented in Arancio Xanto, an iconic new Lamborghini four-layer color. New 20” Aesir rims, dedicated to the EVO, are complemented by Pirelli P Zero tires.
The new sporty and elegant trim, features a number of bi-color 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 customizable ambient lights feature within the cabin.
