After a day of previews exclusively for Lamborghini customers via an invite-only app, the new Lamborghini Huracán Evo has been revealed in full to the public, marking the beginning of the next-gen Huracán.
The 470kW/600Nm N/A 5.2-litre V10 engine from the Huracán Performante features as the engine for the now-base model, which weighs 1422kg dry and can hit 0-100km/h in just 2.9sec just like the Performante.
Unlike the Performante, however, the Huracán Evo features subtler styling as a ‘next step’ for the base model’s look.
The all-wheel drive Huracán Evo also features new all-wheel steering and Lamborghini’s ‘Dinamica Veicolo Integrata’ (or LDVI – a control program for driver assistance). Lamborghini says LDVI “anticipates the next move and needs of the driver” and turns that into “perfect driving dynamics.”

As we saw when images were leaked from Lamborghini’s exclusive Unica app for customers, the most noticeable design changes to the Evo appear at the rear, with the exhaust relocated to more closely match the Performante.
“Lamborghini is intent on leading the advance to the highest level of super sports car technologies and driving emotion,” says Domenicali.
“This is the essence of the new Huracán EVO. It takes the extraordinary abilities of the Huracán Performante and combines state-of-the-art vehicle dynamic control to amplify the everyday Huracán driving experience.
“The Huracán EVO is the very definition of evolution: it is a step ahead, redefining the segment parameters. It is remarkably easy to drive, while delivering the most responsive, sensory and agile driving experience, in every environment.”
Lamborghini says deliveries of the Huracán Evo will start in mid-2019. Australian pricing is not yet confirmed, but should sit near the AUD$450K mark.
