Italian supercar maker Lamborghini has taken the wraps off the updated Huracan. Called the Huracan EVO, it comes with host of exterior and interior updates along with more power.
The Huracan EVO continues with the 5.2 litre naturally aspirated V10 engine that now makes 640 horsepower (as seen in the Huracan Performante) at 8,000rpm and 600 Nm of maximum torque that comes at 6,500rpm. The 0 to 100 kph dash comes up in just 2.9 seconds, 0 to 200 kph in 9 seconds with a top speed of more than 325 kph.
The updated Huracan EVO features rear-wheel steering and a torque vectoring system working on the four wheels, and a new feature called Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI): a Central Processing Unit that controls every aspect of the car’s dynamics.
Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI) is a comprehensive set of accelerators and gyroscope sensors placed at the car’s center of gravity that has been enhanced to version 2.0. 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.
The Enhanced Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) in combination with the rear wheel steering provides sharper responses when going around corners, ensuring agility at low speed, as well as maximum stability in high-speed cornering and under braking in the most severe conditions.
O the exterior, the Huracan EVO gets a new front bumper with the front splitter providing better aerodynamics along with larger air intakes in an Ypsilon shape. The side profile showcases the Hexagon theme that Huracan is well known for and is showcased at the rear window design, the new alloy wheels and the new side air intakes. The rear sees some significant changes with the sports exhaust mounted higher up in the rear bumper. There is also new integrated rear spoiler for better aerodynamics.
The Hurcan EVO comes in a new Arancio Xanto four layer paint shade and gets 20 inch Aesir alloy wheels mated to Pirelli P Zero tyres.
On the interior the car gets a new 8.4 inch touch screen entertainment system that features multi finger gesture control. The system also features smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay, navigation, wen radio and video player. Upholstery options include Alcantara with leather mix. 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.
The Lamborghini Huracan EVO is expected to hit Indian shores later this year.
