Lamborghini Kuala Lumpur recently launched the Huracán Evo at the Sepang International Circuit to an exclusive group of media and customers. The car was based on the Huracán Performante but incorporates next generation vehicle dynamic control and aerodynamics. The new Lamborghini Huracán Evo arrives in Malaysia in the fourth quarter.
The Huracán Evo features an uprated 5.2L naturally aspirated Lamborghini V10 engine with Titanium intake valve and refined, lightweight exhaust to produce higher power output and an emotional and powerful sound. The output of the Huracán Evo is 640hp (470kW) at 8,000 rpm with 600 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. This allows the Huracán Evo to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and from 0-200 km/h in 9 seconds flat with the top speed of more than 325 km/h. The engine is paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, channelling power to all-four wheels with the aid of a rear axle-mounted limited slip differential.
The Huracán Evo exterior was given a number of changes such as a new front bumper coupled with a front splitter with integrated wing and enlarged Ypsilon shaped air intakes that assures aerodynamic efficiency. Moving to the side you’ll notice the new 20-inch Aesir rims which are dedicated to the EVO as well as the new side intake. At the rear, the twin outlets of the new sport exhaust system are positioned high up in the car’s rear bumper reflecting its race-car brother and a new slotted spoiler to help enhance the air flow. The Huracán Evo aero competency continues with the underbody being shaped to maximise aerodynamic efficiency. As a result of the new integrated aerodynamic styling, the Huracán Evo has more than five times downforce and aerodynamic efficiency of the original Huracán.
In order to amplify the driving experience of the Huracán, significant development has been done in the Huracán EVO mechanical department. Lamborghini introduced something totally new the LDVI (Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata) to the which is the car’s central electronic brain that calibrates each parameter to best suit the conditions and selected driver mode and at the same time actively predicts them making the Huracán Evo the most responsive and alert Lamborghini to date. The LDVI system monitors and controls every dynamic function within the car’s chassis. The Huracán Evo also gains a new rear-wheel steering adopted from its larger siblings and a torque vectoring system that should help reduce the previous Huracan’s propensity to understeer, shuffling power to where it’s needed (or wanted) most, more of the time.
The Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI) which has been enhanced to version 2.0 was also found on the Huracán Evo. What the LPI does is that it monitors the dynamic vehicle attitude such as lateral, longitudinal and vertical acceleration as well as roll, pitch and yaw rate in real-time. An upgraded version 2.0 magneto rheological suspension adapts the damping following the input from the LPI. Also on the car is the Enhanced Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) which is able to low speed, agility, maximum stability in high-speed cornering and under braking.
Lamborghini made subtle changes to the interior as they emphasis on upgrading technology and material. The interior of the Huracán Evo remains as a luxurious driver’s car as it features a dedicated new EVO trim in Alcantara with leather mix, with Arancio Dryope details matching the body tone. There is a new 8.4 inch HMI capacitive touchscreen in the center console, which puts connectivity at the driver’s fingertips with multi-finger gesture control. The touchscreen governs car functions such as seats, climate control and the status of the LDVI system in real-time. It also incorporates connected navigation and entertainment, Apple CarPlay with smartphone integration. Dual-camera telemetry and integrated high-capacity hard disk is available as an option.
