2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo Is An Exhilarating Tech-Festooned Extravaganza

Five years after the launch of the Huracan, Lamborghini gave it a mid-cycle refresh with the introduction of the Huracan Evo.

It may not seem like that big of an improvement just by looking at it, but the engineers pretty much took the chassis back to the drawing board and added rear-wheel steering, torque vectoring and Lamborghini Dynamic Vehicle Integration (LDVI), a central brain that ensures all systems work in perfect harmony for quicker launches and faster cornering.

What the Italians tried to do really was take some of the magic of the Huracan Performante and pour it on the regular Huracan. In the end, they did much more than that, as the new Evo is actually faster on some sections of the Nardo test track than the Performante. It’s also 3.7 seconds quicker overall than the supercar it replaces, which by no means can be considered a slouch.

Other aspects that make it an absolute beast are the aerodynamic upgrades that increase downforce and reduce drag. Add the extra power, which is now on the same level as the Performante at 640 PS (631 hp / 471 kW) and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque, and you’ve got a winner. Or do you?

Autocar traveled to the Bahrain GP Circuit to put the Huracan Evo through its paces. The reviewer was impressed by it, acknowledging that everything is better than its predecessor. The revamped Huracan feels light and agile, the steering is sharp and it offers a more exhilarating experience for the driver.

With a £206,000 ($269,673/€235,690) starting price in the UK, it costs about the same as a Ferrari 488 GTB. Does it have what it takes to beat its arch rival from Maranello? Find out by watching the following video review.
