The Huracan Evo Is How The Baby Lambo Should Have Always Been

While the name of the Huracan Evo may lead you to believe that it is the most hardcore version of the company’s entry-level supercar, the truth is that it’s the facelifted version introduced for the 2020 model year.

First unveiled online earlier this year, the Huracan Evo still uses a 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V10 but benefits from a number of significant improvements over the outgoing models, including the Huracan Performante.

As Matt Farah recently discovered when testing the car the Angeles National Forest, it is a supercar filled with drama, despite the use of an all-wheel drive system which limits playfulness through the turns compared to RWD.

The aforementioned engine delivers a punchy 631 HP at 8000 rpm and 442 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque at 6500 rpm. What this means is that the Huracan Evo has to be revved out to extract all of its performance. That’s a trait becoming increasingly rare among supercars, as car manufacturers, such as McLaren with the 720S and Ferrari with the F8 Tributo, have embraced forced induction.

The V10 itself is largely identical to the one out of the Huracan Performante, but the Evo does have some exciting things going on under the skin, including rear-wheel steering, four-wheel torque vectoring, an improved magnetorheological active suspension and a new all-wheel drive system.

While it may not be as fast as some of its rivals, but, as Matt Farah points out in the following video, is exceptionally fun to drive and that howling V10 is simply something unmatched by any competitor.

    Nice.

  • Callanish

    Love the color, love the car, but like Matt, with my height, my back and neck would be completely screwed peeking below that bar in order to see out the front window

  • SteersUright

    The way it sticks to the road, the noise it makes, this is one of the most desirable sports car out there today, in my opinion.

  • Craig

    If only the new Corvette C8 looked more like this.

    • Bash

      The new C8 is already soulless because it doesn’t look like a Corvette anymore, it has this Ferrari kinda look from distance, Cars/Super cars should be more original and standout and clearly be separated and distinguished from the others. This is my problem with many many cars now a days.

      • Craig

        As I see it… there was no reason for the new Corvette to look ANYTHING like a Corvette. This should have been a clean-sheet project all around. Including how it looks. As it is… [based on what we’ve seen so far] it looks awkward and ugly. UNLIKE the Lamborghini. That said… I agree Bash. Cars/Super cars should INDEED be more original and standout and clearly be separated and distinguished from the others. [That’s right! I plagiarized you. So there!]
