The 2019 Lamborghini Huracan EVO has been revealed, the new take on the supercar is based on the Huracan Performante whilst incorporating superior dynamic control and aerodynamics.
Under the meticulously crafted hood of the Huracan EVO resides the 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 engine which has been retuned to deliver 470kW of power at 8000rpm and 600Nm of torque at 6500rpm.
Lamborghini claims the 1422kg Huracan EVO can sprint from 0-100km/h in 2.9 seconds on the way to a top speed of more than 325km/h.
Featured on the Huracan EVO are the new Lamborghini rear-wheel steering and torque vectoring system working on the four wheels which are complemented by the new Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI): a Central Processing Unit that controls every aspect of the car’s dynamic behaviour.
By fully integrating all of the Huracan EVO’s dynamic systems and set-up, the system can anticipate the next move and needs of the driver, interpreting this into perfect driving dynamics.
Also assisting with the vehicle dynamics is the Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI), a comprehensive set of accelerators and gyroscope sensors placed at the Huracan EVO’s centre of gravity, which has been upgraded 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.
Other dynamic improvements include enhanced Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) which is now coupled with rear-wheel steering.
Styling highlights for the new Huracan EVO include a new front bumper, enlarged air intakes in the Ypsilon shape, new 20-inch Aesir wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tyres, new side air intakes and a new sports exhaust system with twin outlets positioned high in the rear bumper.
The Huracan EVO is dressed in a new Lamborghini four-layer colour known as Arancio Xanto.
Internally the EVO features a new 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment display with Apple CarPlay and an Alcantara and leather mix with Arancio Dryope details matching the body tone.
The first Lamborghini Huracan EVO vehicles are expected to be delivered by spring 2019.
Update: Australian pricing will start at $459,411 plus on-road costs which places the EVO between the standard Huracan and the flagship Performante.
