  • Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD) puts driver at the center of the driving experience

  • 610 hp (449 kW) and 560 Nm of torque in lightweight chassis with specially calibrated Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS)  

  • Unique design signifies Huracán EVO RWD’s fresh and exciting delivery of pure driving emotion

  • In-car connectivity with HMI touchscreen technology and infinite Ad Personam options

 

Sant’Agata Bolognese, 4 January 2020 – Automobili Lamborghini announces the Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD): a visceral driving machine, delivering 610 hp (449 kW) of power at 8,000 rpm and 560 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm to a lightweight car with rear-wheel drive and dynamic steering for maximum driving fun. Weighing just 1,389 kg, the Huracán EVO RWD has a top speed of 325 km/h and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds. Despite its top-figure capabilities, the Huracán EVO RWD is not focused on straight-line speeds or lap records: with a unique new design, the Huracán EVO RWD proclaims its designation as an instinctive driver’s car.

 

“The Huracán EVO rear-wheel drive puts the car in the driver’s hands: the driving experience is delivered by the hardware,” says Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini. “This car reminds the driver of Lamborghini’s pure engineering origins: the driver is at the center of the Huracán EVO RWD’s performance, with unfiltered feedback and an emotive and more engaging driving experience controlled by the pilot. The Huracán EVO RWD performance relies on the harmony between man and machine: driving skills and the Huracán EVO’s RWD mechanics deliver perfectly balanced dynamics, physical feedback and a pure performance. The Huracán EVO RWD enhances the V10 Huracán line-up with a model appealing to brand newcomers as well as those seeking sublime driving fun.”

 

Engineered for driving fun

 

The V10 engine delivers more than just power to the rear-wheel drive set-up: the sound of the naturally aspirated power plant combines with the specially tuned traction control system to deliver the most emotive, fun-to-drive experience in both dry and wet conditions, and even snow. The new Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS) is calibrated specifically for the rear-wheel drive Huracán EVO, delivering torque even during the phase where the car is realigning following drifting or side-slipping.

 

Whereas a ‘normal’ traction control system delivers a sharp decoupling, waiting for a car to become completely stable before delivering torque again, the P-TCS car delivers torque in advance, avoiding a harsh torque cut and assuring better traction when exiting a corner.

The P-TCS intervention is calibrated according to the Huracán EVO RWD’s driving modes, selected via the steering wheel’s ANIMA button (Adaptive Network Intelligent Management: ‘soul’ in Italian). In STRADA, the P-TCS minimizes rear wheel slippage to ensure stability and safety in all conditions: with a more proactive strategy P-TCS manages torque delivery on low-adhesion surfaces.

 

In SPORT mode, the P-TCS maximizes the fun-to-drive experience: the rear wheels can slide and skate during acceleration, for easy drifting fun without compromising safety. The system recognizes conditions where the angle of oversteer increases rapidly and limits torque delivery to the rear wheels, allowing the driver to perfectly control and stabilize the car.

 

In CORSA, the P-TCS is calibrated to achieve the rear-wheel slip that optimizes the car’s traction and agility when exiting a corner, allowing the driver to maximize performance. The P-TCS improves smoothness of intervention by 30% compared to the previous Huracán RWD model; improves corner-exit traction by 20% and enhances oversteer by 30%.

 

The Huracán EVO RWD’s hybrid chassis integrates lightweight aluminum and carbon fiber with an aluminum and thermoplastic resin body, with a total dry weight of 1,389 kg giving a weight-to-power ratio of 2.28 kg/hp. With front/rear weight distribution of 40/60, the Huracán EVO RWD sits on double wishbone suspension with overlapped quadrilaterals and passive shock absorbers. The electro-mechanical, servo-assisted Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) is tuned specifically for the Huracán EVO RWD, ensuring maximum feedback. The seven-speed dual clutch gearbox ensures the fastest gear changes, with launch control for maximum acceleration from a standing start. The 19” Kari rims with specially-developed Pirelli P Zero tires are fitted with ventilated and cross-drilled steel brakes. As an option 20” rims and carbo-ceramic brakes are available.

 

Fresh design for pure performance 

 

The Huracán EVO RWD continues the V10 Lamborghini’s powerful design with new front and rear features, clearly differentiating it from its Huracán EVO 4WD stablemate.

 

The Huracán EVO RWD is characterized by a sculpted, purposeful persona, complemented by a new front splitter and vertical fins within the larger, framed front air intakes. The rear bumper in high gloss black incorporates a new diffuser unique to the Huracán EVO RWD.

 

Inside, the cockpit features a HMI 8.4” touchscreen in the center console of the car, controlling all aspects of the car’s functions as well as managing full connectivity such as telephone calls, internet access, and including Apple CarPlay.

 

Both inside and out, Lamborghini’s Ad Personam program provides unsurpassed options for color and trim personalization, allowing owners of the Huracán EVO RWD to impose their individual style and personality on their new Lamborghini driving machine. In order to emphasize the shape of the car the new color, Giallo Belenus (yellow), has been developed together with a dedicated leather and Alcantara color for the interior trim, matching the new exterior paint.

Back looks great, never liked the front of the Huracunt as a coupe - the front is too short and the angle down too steep for my liking. Looks squashed. The vert helps with this IMO but the proportions just don't seem balanced.

Agreed, the back end looks really good. The front feels just a little too soft and exactly put, just not balanced between the two.

The front looks too soft? There is no other car on the road that screams more "get out of the fcuking way" than a Huracan.

Soft may not be the right term, but that's the best I could do. And to clarify, it doesn't mean soft compared to the market at large. I meant it specifically in comparison to the back end of the car.

I actually like its new looks.; very menacing,  Probably the first design/revision from Borkert that I find acceptable overall (but that's just me).  I do agree that from day 1 since the original H, its front end drops-off too sharply and its nose is a bit short which made its overall proportions look somewhat strange.

Let's see if its P-TCS would deliver as it claims and how it integrates with the drive-by-wire steering.  If it does what it claims to do, this should be a phenomenal machine to drive.

Picked one of these up again (had an LP560-4 Coupe from new in 2012 which i DD and did 14k or so in) and think this will stand the test of time better. Gearbox is shit in comparison but for a top down cruise along the PCH to get a coffee it's more than nice enough - it's been too long without a V10 or 12! Hopefully i'll be trading it in for an upgrade later in the year!

I think the front looks much better than the AWD version.  Not to mention the pricing actually seems appropriate, whereas the AWD version seems incredibly over-priced at above $300k with good options.

unfortunately, surveillance has officially be made standard equipment, that would seem to mean the car could be compromised by someone or something anywhere that has an internet connection, not to mention you are be continuously watched, analyzed, and marketed...no thanks

 

 

and, every word you speak, will be recorded and out of your control as to how it is used...

and, if you have a girlfriend, daughter, wife, etc named "Alexa", wonder how that works

Evo in pics look s ok but its reality its not great in person, this Front kind of make me think of squadra corsa and thats not a good thing. 
 

Really not liking where Lamborghini have been going with the styling lately, its just trying too hard to be extreme without actually being extreme. on that note i think the rsq8 is a lot better looking in person than the Urus is.

There are worse cars that have a way higher surveillance, just look at any Tesla. That kind of surveillance is extremely dangerous. 

Alexa is actually a harmless and welcome addition. The touchscreen in the central console of the Huracan Evo is horrible. Good luck controlling climate and etc with fingers. It simply doesn't work.

The interior is even a bigger disappointment. Looks and feels cheap and the the touchscreen just looks out of place.
