Updated Lamborghini Huracán teased for customers

Updated Lamborghini Huracan EVO teased for customers news

The Huracán ‘Evo’ has been partially revealed to Lamborghini customers via invite-only app

Lamborghini has revealed a couple of close-up teaser images of a facelifted Lamborghini Huracán, as well as one full image from the rear three-quarter, heralding the upgraded Huracán Evo due to arrive soon.

The images were revealed exclusively to those with access to Lamborghini’s Unica app, primarily customers and owners, as the app requires an invitation from the Italian carmaker to gain access.

However, the images have since spread to social media and news sites, those pictured first prominently appearing on autoexpress.co.uk.

Visually, the Huracán Evo takes a step further toward the Performante, with its rear exhaust exits relocated further up the car’s rump, and some more aggressively styled intakes and aero.

MOTOR review: Huracán Performante

A small, relatively subtle wing has sprouted from the rear of the Huracán Evo, though it’s nowhere near as intense as that of the Performante.

Lamborghini Forum posts have rumoured (via those who claim to be in the know) that the ‘Evo’ will be AWD-only (at first at least – but claims on lamborghini-talk.com say no RWD version is inbound) and will feature all-wheel steering.

Expectations from punters are for the naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10 to come in 640hp or 680hp (470kW and 500kW) versions, but the latter would have the Evo outgunning the Performante by around 30kW.

Expect power bumps to come in smaller margins from its 449kW current iteration (in LP610-4 guise), as was the case with the closely related R8’s recent update.

Interior styling is also said to be a target for upgrading, but no images of the cabin have been released yet.

While the Huracán Evo should make its debut in March at the Geneva Motor Show, Lamborghini should also be preparing to publicly reveal the Aventador SVJ Roadster, though no official word has come from the brand. Stay tuned.
