The Lamborghini Huracan was designed to fill the exotic car company’s entry-level offering. Now, five years after its introduction, the Huracan is receiving a facelift—or perhaps more appropriately, it is evolving—to become the Huracan Evo. The facelift comes in with more aggressive front and rear ends.
The bumper has a “naked” design, and the vents are larger. The wheels are bespoke, and it has a new splitter. The interior is also changed up, adding in an infotainment system with a big 8.4-inch touchscreen. The inside is decked out in leather and Alcantara with plenty of upholstery options.
Of course, when you’re talking Lamborghini, the topic of engine power will come up. The Huracan Evo uses the same 5.2 litre V10 under the hood, but it’s slightly more powerful with this update. The engine comes from the Huracan Performante, which has 631 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque—that’s an improvement of 29 horsepower and 18 lb-ft over the previous Huracan.
The engine is also dressed up with titanium intake valves and a lightweight exhaust system. The Evo can hit 100km/h in just 2.9 seconds, and doubles that speed in just nine seconds. Top speed maxes out somewhere past 202 miles per hour. The Evo also comes with the Vehicle Dynamics Control System, which uses all-wheel drive and all-wheel steering for better responsiveness, agility, and easiness to drive.
Lamborghini’s Huracan Evo is a proper homage to previous models, but a serious evolutionary step as well.
