Baroque Ground takes a look at the Lamborghini Huracán Evo, touted as the Next Generation V10 Supercar
Getting ready to take to the road, the brand new 2020 Lamborghini Huracán Evo is one powerful car. The engine is a naturally aspirated V10 engine that produces higher power output. Combined with advanced driving technology that actually predicts the most suitable driving set-up for a specific moment, this new vehicle is something to write home about.
It’s being touted as the Next Generation V10 Supercar – and for good reason. While it is similar in many ways to the Lamborghini Huracán Performante, the Evo boasts a completely new design that offers improved performance, aerodynamics and control. The name Evo is short for ‘Evolution’ and it is the first Lamborghini vehicle that offers technology that includes predictive logic to control vehicle dynamics. This means that the car doesn’t just react; it actually takes the environment and the driver’s manner of controlling the car into consideration. Combine that with all-wheel drive and steering, and the car is not only immediately responsive; it’s agile and great to drive.
“The Huracán Evo is the definition of evolution,” says Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and CEO of Automobil Lamborghini. “It is a step ahead… It is remarkably easy to drive, while delivering the most responsive, sensory and agile driving experience in every environment.”
This high performance super car is equipped with Titanium intake valves and a refined lightweight exhaust system as well as a seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission. It’s powerful beyond measure, accelerating from standstill to 100km in just 2.9 seconds, and from zero to 200km in a remarkable 9 seconds. Top speed is apparently 325km per hour.
Its systems run through the innovative, new LDVI (Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata), a system that controls all-wheel drive, adaptive dampers and stability control as well as the rear-wheel steering and brake-based torque vectoring. It uses feed-forward logic to predict what the driver is going to do and responds accordingly.
The Evo will set one back anything from $268,000. This is a car that should be used daily, not just on weekends. Weighing it at 3,500 pounds, it’s a formidable combination of beauty and power.
