It’s update time at Sant’Agata. Lamborghini’s new Huracan EVO is here for 2019 and acts as a heavy facelift to the V10 supercar from the raging bull. Lamborghini’s baby supercar is an indirect sibling with the Audi R8، which was recently updated، too، The UK Car Magazine reported.
Is the engine still that V10?
Thankfully، yes. Lamborghini has taken out the engine from the Performante for this new model، so there’s 631bhp available at a screaming 8000rpm and 442lb ft from a 5.2-litre V10 connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch ‘box. The 0-62mph sprint is over with in 2.9 seconds – the same time as the Performante – and on to a max speed of 202mph.
Maybe so، but Lamborghini says this one is more intelligent at dealing with all of that power due to a new ECU with a fantastically Italian name: Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI).
The Huracan is still all-wheel drive، so the new ECU has not only that to manage but the new rear-wheel steering system that features here، too – something all new to the Huracan and something its Audi R8 cousin doesn't get. The adaptive suspension has also been revised for greater stability، says Lambo، and dynamic steering is still optional.
What else is new?
The interior has undergone considerable changes، much to the pleasure of hacks like us that thought the tech was a couple of levels behind the supercar curve. The biggest difference is a new 8.4-inch touchscreen planted low in the dashboard that controls media and climate. It also has very-on-trend-if-gimmicky gesture control. Lamborghini also says the new Huracan can be had with a dual-camera telemetry system for setting your best lap times.
