Lamborghini Huracan Evo Does The Quarter Mile… Faster Than You’d Think

In news that won’t surprise anyone, the Huracan Evo is fast. Like, really fast. But just how quick is it off the line?

To find out, Drag Times jumped behind the wheel of the updated baby Lambo at a drag strip and put it to the test for a number of sprints down the quarter-mile. The track conditions were good but not perfect.

The best run saw it accelerate to 60 mph (96 km/h) in a mere 2.68 seconds before crossing the quarter-mile in 10.6-seconds at 130 mph (209 km/h). Brooks from the Drag Times channel believes that, with better weather and a perfectly-prepped drag strip, the Huracan Evo probably has a 10.3-second quarter mile up its sleeve.

If the Huracan Evo can actually do that, it would put it up there with the very best times recorded for the Lamborghini Huracan Performante and Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. It would also be just a few fractions of a second behind the Ferrari 488 Pista and McLaren 720S, both of which feature forced induction and have significantly more power than the Raging Bull.

What we find more impressive than the straight-line performance is how capable the Evo appears to be on a race track, as earlier this month, SportAuto lapped Germany’s Hockenheim GP circuit in just 1:49, putting it just 0.5-seconds off the Porsche 918 Spyder.

The Huracan Evo is available in both Coupe and Spyder configurations, both powered by a 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V10 delivering 631 HP and 443 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque to all four wheels.

    I always thought the people at Lambo downplayed the Huracan’s hp , probably more like 700 but they didn’t want to cut into the Aventador’s sales which it did anyway

    Lamborghini Huracan Evo. Base price. $261,274. Corvette Stingray C8. Base price. $59,995. Hmm… So instead of buying the Huracan Evo – I could buy the Corvette AND a fully loaded Acura NSX. Both capable of reaching 60 mph in under 3 seconds. Lamborghini? No thanks.

        What did he say that wasn’t understandable?

      Can’t beat the sound and drama of a Lamborghini! If you have the money then it’s not really a case of what other cars can you buy cheaper….

      • Ben

        They’re different sounds for sure. A large V8 with near straight pipes is a beautiful thing too. Plenty of drama especially with 650hp-755hp. Lamborghini’s V10 does sound great and I really wish Viper’s V10 sounded like it too. However, I absolutely love the snarl of the Viper’s engine.

      • Craig

        I think that’s a silly argument in favor of spending FAR MORE than you need to. And I think the NSX and even the new C8 are equally impressive. Besides… I’d feel like a moron with my Evo parked in my driveway and in my neighbor’s driveway was an NSX he bought for himself and C8 he bought for his wife.

        • Matt

          Ok well luckily nobody is forcing you to buy one!

          • Craig

            What a silly response.

  • iggination

    It should be expected for these cars to be this fast!!

  • SteersUright

    This engine sound should be studied by all other sports car makers.
