The 2020 Lamborghini Huracan has just received a mildly revised face and tweaked performance. Dubbed the EVO, it sure is no Lancer Evo, but it’s still quite the head turner that we expect from the raging bull brand.
Most of the new exterior changes have been made for the sake of better aerodynamics. The new front bumper, which features a new front splitter with an integrated wing design, provides better airflow to the front of the vehicle. These are then flanked by the brand’s signature Y-shaped air intakes. At the back, the rear fascia features a bigger twin-exhaust set-up, which are positioned higher compared to its predecessor. Lastly, a newly designed integrated rear spoiler provides much more downforce than before. Overall, the design changes have enabled the EVO to generate five times as much downforce compared to its predecessor.
Inside, the changes are much more subtle. The main highlight is the new 8.4-inch touch screen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay integration. Options range from Forged Carbon Composite pieces which made their debut in the Huracan Performante, as well as Carbon Skin which goes together with the ambient interior lighting package.
Under the hood is the same 5.2-liter V10 that we’ve come to know and love. It now produces 631 hp and 60 Nm of torque, which is an increase of 29 hp from its predecessor. Weighing at just 1,422 kg, the Huracan EVO can sprint from 0-100 kph in just 2.9 seconds and 0-200 kph in just 9.0 seconds. Top speed is rated at 325 kph. Power is sent through all four wheels, in which the AWD system features rear-wheels steering and four-wheel torque vectoring.
The EVO debuts the new Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI), which is a CPU that controls the car’s dynamic behavior. It continuously adjusts numerous vehicle components, such as the suspension, steering, and AWD system, to always deliver the best ride and/or handling whatever the situation. This works in tandem with the Lamborghini Piattaforma Inzerziale (LPI), which are a set of accelerator and gyroscope sensors right at the EVO’s center of gravity, to further let the LDVI know which parameter of the vehicle to adjust depending on the driving situation.
The Lamborghini Huracan EVO has a starting price of $261,274 in the US market.
