Lamborghini Huracán EVO
The new Lamborghini Huracán EVO is the next generation V10 super sports car, with the prowess and performance of the Huracán Performante and next-generation vehicle dynamic control and aerodynamics.
The Huracán EVO features the 5.2 l naturally-aspirated Lamborghini V10 engine, uprated to produce higher power output and an emotional and powerful sound, with Titanium intake valves and refined lightweight exhaust system. The Huracán 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 Huracán 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 is intent on leading the advance to the highest level of super sports car technologies and driving emotion. This is the essence of the new Huracán EVO. It takes the extraordinary abilities of the Huracán Performante and combines state-of-the-art vehicle dynamic control to amplify the everyday Huracán driving experience", says Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini. "The Huracán EVO is the very definition of evolution: it is a step ahead, redefining the segment parameters. It is remarkably easy to drive while delivering the most responsive, sensory and agile driving experience, in every environment."
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 behavior, 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 magnetorheological 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.
Enhanced Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS), able to provide higher responsiveness in corners while requiring the lowest steering angles, is now coupled with rear-wheel steering in order to ensure agility at low speed, as well as maximum stability in high-speed cornering and under braking in the most severe conditions.
The unique combination of all these systems is governed by Lamborghini’s LDVI to create a super-agile and responsive car with an unparalleled level of control. Processing data in real-time, the Huracán EVO recognizes the driver’s intentions through the steering wheel, brake and accelerator pedal inputs, engaged gear, and the driving modes selected via ANIMA controller: STRADA, SPORT or CORSA.
External conditions are determined through active suspension and all-wheel drive grip estimation function. All of this information is analyzed and processed by LDVI, which turns them into precise inputs for the vehicle dynamic system. A feedforward logic is implemented via the dynamic controller, which means the car doesn’t just react but predicts the best driving set-up for the next moment.
In STRADA, the Huracán EVO is agile and capable of driving enjoyment, whereas in SPORT it becomes playful, intuitive, and extremely exciting. In CORSA the Huracán EVO is sharp, reactive, and exhilarating for the most extreme driving environments, such as racetracks.
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 an integrated wing. The enlarged air intakes feature the Ypsilon shape that is inherent in Lamborghini design DNA.
The side profile of the Huracán EVO is articulately dynamic, featuring Lamborghini’s hexagon design references in the windows, the new wheel design, and around the new side air intakes.
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 airflow, 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 resonate 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.
