Lamborghini unveils 2020 Huracan Evoby Ronan Glon
The Evo packs as much power as the Performante.
Lamborghini has officially unveiled the updated Huracan, its smallest and most affordable super-sports car. Called Evo, the model features styling updates on both ends, powertrain tweaks, and more tech inside.
Up front, it takes a well-trained eye to tell the Evo apart from the Huracan because the changes are largely limited to a redesigned front bumper. Out back, the Huracan Evo receives a new-look rear end inspired by the track-ready released in 2017. The exhaust tips move further up on the rear fascia to clear up space for a diffuser that stretches nearly the entire width of the car. We also spot a redesigned rear spoiler.
We haven't seen the inside of the Huracan Evo yet. Lamborghini tells us it has added an 8.4-inch touch screen for the infotainment system. It boasts motion recognition technology, and it's compatible with Apple CarPlay. The firm also offers a telemetry system and a hard drive at an extra cost.
The Huracan Evo carries on with a naturally-aspirated, 5.2-liter V10 engine. It makes 640 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque, figures that place the Evo on par with the aforementioned Performante. The 10-cylinder still spins all four wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The mechanical updates lower the Huracan's zero-to-62-mph time to 2.9 seconds and allow it to hit a top speed of over 200 mph.
The Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI) technology packed into the Evo relies on gyroscope and accelerator sensors to help keep the car pointed in the right direction. There is also a central computer -- essentially the car's brain -- that analyzes data from the LPI to predict the driver's next move and configure the chassis accordingly.
The 2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo is on-sale now with a base price of $261,274. Deliveries will begin in the spring of 2019.
