Lamborghini Huracan EVO, Detailed Updates Slightly Boost Performance And Styling
How do you improve on the Lamborghini Huracan? It looks stealthily fantastic inside and out. What more can you do? Turns out Lamborghini can do more. Every modern day car goes through a “mid-cycle refresh” or “facelift”. Technically speaking that means… more sales, more sales, more sales. Predominantly a mid-cycle facelift concentrates on exterior styling, interior detailing, extra equipment, a boost in power etc.
At first glance, the 2020 Lamborghini Huracan EVO doesn’t look any different to the current model. But the first difference is in the name. The suffix “EVO” has been added to give the marketing team more creativity. However, there are some interesting detailed changes that you will not spot initially.
Lamborghini has improved the Huracan EVO’s aerodynamics. A new floor improves underside airflow, a new front bumper design features a front splitter. A winglet has been integrated into the structure to aid airflow.
The side air-intakes are also slightly larger. At the rear, the twin exhaust has been repositioned and now sits higher up.
The rear lip features an integrated slotted spoiler that increases downforce. Lamborghini claims that these changes have improved aerodynamics and downforce by 20-percent.
The Lamborghini Huracan EVO receives a performance boost of 30bhp. The 5.2-liter naturally aspirated engine now pumps out 631bhp and 600Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque.
Naturally, the performance improves slightly. The 0-62mph time takes 2.9 seconds and the Lamborghini Huracan EVO can reach a top speed of 202mph.
But the Huracan EVO isn’t merely about the looks and performance.
The handling features 4-wheel torque vectoring, active suspension, AWD, rear wheel steering, an upgraded traction control system and improved steering.
In addition, the Lamborghini Huracan EVO also gets a CPU that controls all of the car’s performance and control systems in real-time. They call it the Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata. LDVI.
The interior has not received a significant change. The exception being the introduction of a new 8.4-inch infotainment system that is loaded with the latest connectivity and smartphone integration.
And there are the usual, upgraded styling packs. The Huracan EVO is trimmed in leather and Alcantara as standard.
The Lamborghini Huracan EVO will cost £162,000 in the UK, $261,00 in the US and around 3,300,000 RMB in China. First deliveries are expected in spring 2019.
