New Lamborghini Huracan Evo revealed

Newly updated supercar features revised looks and more power.

Lamborghini has showcased the replacement for its Huracan supercar – the Evo.

The Huracan Evo gets a bold new styling package which takes cues from the flagship Performante model, as well as more power.

It sees a new diffuser, taillights and a high-exit exhaust all added to the car, giving it a far more aggressive appearance. Even the underside of the car has been extensively styled to improve aerodynamic efficiency.

These updates are thought to apply to the all-wheel-drive LP610-4 Coupe and Spyder models, though it is expected that rear-wheel-drive LP580-2 models will receive the facelift too.

The Huracan Evo’s performance has been boosted over the previous car too. Power is now up to 631bhp – an increase of just under 30bhp over the old car – and it’ll hit 60mph in just 2.7 seconds. Drive comes courtesy of a naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10 engine, and Lamborghini claims that the Huracan Evo will hit over 200mph flat-out.

It features both rear-wheel steering and torque vectoring for enhanced cornering abilities, while Enhanced Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) gives greater responsiveness in the bends. It means that the Evo has improved low-speed agility as well as excellent high-speed stability.

Inside, the Huracan Evo benefits from an 8.4-inch colour touchscreen, which features multi-finger gesture control and Apple CarPlay, as well as traditional functions such as satellite navigation and media controls.

Lamborghini quotes the new Huracan Evo’s price in the UK as £165,256, excluding retail price taxes.
