A powerful ‘Huracan’ of design and powertrain tweaks has hit land, but you wouldn’t want to get out of the way.
Lamborghini has updated the Huracan, its smallest and most affordable supercar. Adopting the Evo moniker, the model features more power, styling updates, and some new tech features.
Starting with the powertrain, the Lamborghini Huracan EVO is powered by a naturally-aspirated 5.2L V10 that, like the track-ready Huracan Performante that released in 2017, generates 630 horsepower (470 kW) and 443 lb-ft. (600 Nm) of torque.
That’s an additional 10-horsepower for drivers to work with, which when combined with dry weight of only 3,135 pounds (1,422 kilograms), helps the Huracan Evo reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in only 2.9 seconds, 124 mph (200 km/h) in 9.0 seconds, and a top speed over 202 mph (325 km/h).
The baby Lamborghini also boasts an upgraded suspension with adaptive dampers that can be adjusted instantly, as well as a new traction control system that can send all the power to one wheel if needed. As with previous model, a rear-wheel steering and four-wheel torque vectoring system are standard ware.
On the outside, the Huracan EVO arrives with a new-look rear end inspired by the Performante, highlighted by a redesigned rear spoiler and exhaust tips that have been moved further up to clear up space for a diffuser that stretches nearly the entire width of the car.
The front end is not only more aggressive than the previous Huracan, but it’s also more aerodynamic thanks to the incorporation of a front splitter with an integrated wing. From the side, notice the new 20-inch alloy wheels in the Aesir design and the reshaped air intakes…
Inside, the Huracan EVO receives a new 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay connectivity and multi-finger gestures controls that lets you adjust just about everything, including the seats and climate control settings.
Voice commands are also supported, as is an optional dual-camera telemetry system for track days.
The Lamborghini Huracan EVO goes on sale in spring 2019 with a starting price of $261,274 in the United States. Do you want one?
Lamborghini Huracán EVO Spyder Drops Its Top For Summer
The Lamborghini Huracán EVO Spyder has been revealed just in time for summer.
The convertible version of the Huracán EVO features the same upgrades as the coupe, including a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 that delivers 640 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque, a vehicle dynamic control system, and aerodynamic enhancements.
More than 250 pounds heavier than the coupe, the Huracán EVO Spyder is only 0.2 seconds slower to 62 mph (100 km/h) with a sprint of 3.1 seconds and has a top speed of 202 mph (325 km/h). It boasts the new Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale 2.0 system, which offers “next-generation vehicle dynamic control” by utilizing a set of accelerators and gyroscope sensors located in the car’s crenter of gravity to monitor real-time lateral, longitudinal and vertical accelerations, as well as roll, pitch and yaw rate.
Both the coupe and Spyder also feature rear-wheel steering and four-wheel torque vectoring, taking advantage of the vehicle dynamic control system. Interestingly, the convertible Evo boasts five times as much downforce as the original Huracán Spyder despite having a soft top.
Exterior updates include a new front bumper with larger air intakes, a new exhaust system that’s placed higher in the rear bumper, and new 20” Aesir wheels with Pirelli P Zero tires, while the interior houses a new 8.4” HMI touchscreen with Apple CarPlay compatibility.
The Lamborghini Huracán EVO Spyder goes on sale in spring 2019 with a starting price of $287,400 in the United States.
Lamborghini Urus ST-X Concept Is A Track-Ready Super SUV
The Italian super SUV is heading to the race track.
Lamborghini has released a close-to-production concept that accurately previews a race-going version of the Urus.
Based on the regular-production Urus, the Urus ST-X concept sees a whopping 25 percent ( 1,200 pounds) weight reduction that makes it more dynamic on and off the road.
Other upgrades include a carbon fiber hood, sport exhaust system with hexagonal tips positioned below the rear doors, a large rear wing, and 21-inch center-locking alloy wheels.
There is also a steel roll cage, an FT3 fuel tank, and an integrated fire suppression system for when things get “extra hot” on the track.
The Urus ST-X keeps the same twin-turbocharged, 4.0-liter V8 as the standard Urus, with an eight-speed automatic transmission send that power to the rear wheels. Bigger air intakes improve cooling.
We’ll see the production Lamborghini Urus ST-X in 2020 in a single-brand championship with both on- and off-road events, including on FIA-approved circuits in Europe and in the Middle East.
Lamborghini SC18 Supercar Is A One-Off Demonic Aventador
The Aventador-based supercar is the first vehicle designed by Lambo’s motorsport division, Squadra Corse.
Lamborghini has revealed the SC18, a one-off, track-ready performance machine that’s street-legal.
Created with help from its lucky new owner, the SC18 borrows styling cues from Lamborghini’s racing models, including hood air intakes inspired by those on the Huracan GT3 EVO; Super Trofeo EVO-inspired fenders, fins and airscoops inspired; and a large carbon-fiber wing with three mechanical adjustments for fine tuning downforce.
Power is provided by a 6.5-liter V12 delivers 770 horsepower at 8,500 rpm and 531 pound-feet of torque at 6,750 rpm, channeled to the ground via an Independent Shifting Rod (ISR) optimized seven-speed gearbox.
That much power in combination with the deletion of a few pounds should make the car a few ticks faster than the Aventador SVJ.
According to Lamborghini, the SC18 paves the way for additional custom projects for motorsports customers under the Squadra Corse brand. How would you design your Lamborghini?
