Lamborghini Huracan Evo Ups the Ante With 630 HP

Performante engine trickles down

The Huracan Performante set a new standard for Lamborghini. Its performance matches its exterior design; it's quick, and it has the stability to handle its power. Motor Trend liked it so much they named it their 2018 Best Driver's Car. Now we're curious to see how Lamborghini has taken these cues and applied them to the new Huracan Evo, a refreshed and updated version of the Huracan LP 580.

The new "base" Huracan's 5.2-liter V-10 engine now makes 630 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque, just like the Performante. Lamborghini estimates a 0-62 mph time of 2.9 seconds from the naturally aspirated engine, although a Performante MT tested was able to hit the mark in just 2.6 seconds. Coming in at a dry weight of 3,135 pounds, the Evo achieves a weight-to-power ratio of 4.89 pounds per horsepower, according to Lambo. Top speed, like the Performante, exceeds 201 hp.

Performance isn't just about power, which is why the Evo gets brains to complement its brawn. It's the first Lamborghini to receive a Vehicle Dynamics Control system with predictive logic. This involves a central processing unit that anticipates the driver's next move for increased responsiveness. It integrates all of the car's dynamic systems, including new rear-wheel steering. A new traction control system works with upgraded all-wheel drive and torque vectoring to deliver traction to a single wheel when needed.

Among the many design changes, the Huracan receives a new front bumper, 20-inch Aesir wheels, and revised side air intakes. The model also receives a restyled underbody, contributing to downforce and aerodynamic efficiency that is said to be more than five times greater the original Huracan. You'll also find a new exhaust system.

Inside the cabin, there is a new 8.4-inch touchscreen. The model gets an exclusive trim, a mix of Alcantara and leather with special details matching the body. Carbon fiber composite trim is available as an option.

Lamborghini will begin deliveries around the globe this spring. Prices start at $261,274 not including taxes in the U.S. Check out the official configurator here.
