New for 2019, the new Lamborhini Huracan EVO bring an updated look and Performante power and adds “next-generation vehicle dynamic control and aerodynamics”.
Carrying over the 5.2L V10 from the Huracan Performante, the Huracan EVO puts out 640 hp at 8,000 rpm and 442 lb-ft of torque at 6,500 rpm. At 3135 lbs dry, the EVO sprints from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.9 seconds.
Rear-wheel steering and torque vectoring is overseen by the new Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI) system that controls all areas of the EVO, integrating multiple systems to the point where it can, according to Lamborghini, anticipate the car and driver’s next move.
Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI) gets a 2.0 upgrade with improvements to the car’s accelerators and gyroscope for monitoring lateral, longitudinal and vertical motions (including roll, pitch and yaw rate). The magnetic suspension also receives an update.
With an enhanced version of Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS), all of these systems result in low-speed agility and high-speed stability and cornering.
Visually, a new front and rear adds a more striking presence while improving aerodynamics. The exhaust exits are reminiscent of its Performante sibling. The underside of the car receives additional aero upgrades, too.
Inside, a new 8.4″ touchscreen adds connectivity and improved delivery of information of the car’s LDVI system in real time.
While all of these features are exciting, as a performance shop, our minds gravitate toward the possibilities of increased power and sound from the new Huracan EVO, including exhaust systems, performance tuning and even the addition of a VF Engineering supercharger system, like can be found on the standard Huracan and Performante.
Manhattan Motorwerks will be working closely with our vendors to deliver the very best in performance upgrades for EVO customers throughout the the New York City and New Jersey area.
