New Lamborghini Huracán Evo revealed for 2019
More powerful with greater aerodynamics and updated styling, details of the new Lamborghini Huracán Evo are certainly hitting the sweet spot for 2019.
The styling changes have been designed to give the car aerodynamic superiority, which includes a change to the front bumper, bringing enlarged intakes and an integrated splitter. However, the car has seen the most significant changes to the rear where there is now a new full-width intake. The new integrated spoiler offers more balance for downforce and drag, whilst the repositioned twin exhausts are now situated higher up the rear fascia, race car style.
The new shape and aerodynamics have allowed Lamborghini to increase the Huracán Evo’s power output, which now match the Huracán Performante’s totals of 631bhp and 443lb ft with it’s naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10 engine.
Speeds of 0-62mph in 2.9 seconds have been reported and if you keep pushing, you’ll reach 124mph in 9 seconds straight. So, does it hit that magic 200mph top speed? You can bet your bottom dollar it will as top speeds of 202mph have been claimed.
So top speeds, a new look and supremely more aerodynamic, you’d have thought that would be enough for this stunning super car, but Lamborghini have not left it there. A new on-board chassis controlling computer system called the ‘Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata’ or LDVI for short has also been introduced to the car.
Extremely clever, the LDVI is set to control every aspect of the car’s dynamics. Sensors monitor the vehicle’s acceleration, as well as the roll, pitch and yaw rate and astonishingly can predict driver’s behaviour to ensure it delivers the best driving set-up for the next moment.
For Apple lovers there’s a new touchscreen with Apple CarPlay integrated in the centre console but without proof of interior images, this has not as yet been confirmed. To be honest with a car like this, do we really care if the integrated system is set slightly off to the left or right? It will allegedly control everything from climate control to the new dual-camera telemetry system and all activated of course by voice command.
Personalisation of the car has also been expanded to include choice of new wheels and colour choices. New upholstery options and a range of new style packs have also been rumoured.
If you’re planning on treating yourself, you’re looking at a cool starting price of just £165,256 with delivery dates expected around Spring 2019.
