The first official images and details of the new Lamborghini Huracán Evo have been released ahead of its public reveal at the Geneva motor show later this year, introducing a more powerful, aerodynamic and technologically advanced upgrade.

Its sharp, edgy and angry-looking design is typically Lambo-esque, maintaining a grip on the company’s traditionally unique design.

Aesthetically, the Evo looks more aggressive than the previous Huracán, and the good news is that its performance matches its appearance.

The Huracán has previously been labelled as Lambo’s ‘baby supercar’, but the model seems to have come of age through this revamped Evo version.

With the same engine as the powerful  Lamborghini Huracán Performante, and with design upgrades giving the car an added maturity, the Evo seems more than ready to challenge the likes of the McLaren 570S.

Here, we outline the Huracán Evo’s cost, design, specs and much more!

Lambo Huracan Evo: The Feel

Lamborghini have claimed that their new Huracán Evo has been designed to amplify your daily routine – essentially making your every-day life better.

They do not want to alter your daily routine massively, but to improve and evolve it to become a refined version of the past. 

Similarly to what they have done with the Evo, which is an enhanced, upgraded form of the original 2014 Huracán.

The Huracán Evo’s smooth feel is largely influenced by its ability to anticipate the driver’s needs, implementing a new ‘feed-forward’ method rather than the familiar feedback system.

It is able to provide such an intimate driver-vehicle connection due to state-of-the-art control systems and displays which manage the car and allow the Evo to use its surroundings and the driver’s input to create the ultimate driving experience.

The Huracán Evo also utilises four-wheel drive, which further enhances the quality of the handling and performance.

What Does the New Huracan Evo Look Like?

In terms of the exterior, Lamborghini have not made many radical changes to the original iconic shape, but there are a few more tweaks and enhancements in order to augment aerodynamics and performance. 

The Huracán Evo remains in touch with the universally recognisable Lambo stamp, being noticeably low, with a razor-sharp body.

The Y-shaped front bumper is distinctive and the bonnet lines are akin to the classic Lamborghini Countach, whereas the skirt air ducts are similar to those of the Murciélago.  

The Huracán Evo’s race-car-like exhaust has been repositioned upwards to sit almost centrally at the rear of the supercar, much like the highest performing Lamborghini models.


The new Evo pays homage to the manufacturer’s racing routes, but is not to be confused with the Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo Evo – which began production in 2018 as a competitive race-car. 

However, the raised exhaust increases airflow, thus improving the car’s aerodynamics and downforce by a substantial amount.

The Aerodynamics

With the exhausts being shifted upwards, Lamborghini claim that they have successfully managed to improve the aero by five times of that achieved by the first generation Huracán.

How do they achieve such impressive aerodynamics?

An upgraded front bumper manipulates the airflow, ushering the air through a front splitter with an integrated wing, thus creating a double airway beneath the body, while the improved flaps allow additional aerodynamic load. 

The outcome is an increased downforce, pressing the vehicle towards the ground for a smoother and crisper drive.

The New Evo's Interior

Whereas the exterior was tweaked with certain features, the interior of the new Huracán Evo has seen major updates including significant technological advances and new, innovative material options.

How the inside of the car looks depends largely on the owner’s taste, with three different options available for the interior materials.

Its indoor features are inspired by traditionally Italian design, with all options offering materials of the highest quality.

The three materials available for the interior are:
  • Leather
  • Alcantara
  • Carbon Skin
Carbon Skin is an exclusive, Carbon Fibre material that has been developed especially for Lamborghini.

The technological advances are what really set the Evo apart from its previous version though, with highly complex advances being made to how the car is run.

Technology Advances 

Despite the Huracán Evo not necessarily changing massively on the outside, there’s more to the Evo than meets the eye.

The Lamborghini Integrated Vehicle Dynamics (LDVI) system is the so-called ‘brain’ of the Huracán Evo, and is the complex processor behind the car’s ground-breaking ability to anticipate rather than react to the driver’s commands.

It uses the driver’s input, the selected driving mode and the external environment to predict the driver’s wishes. 

This technology represents a shift from the traditional ‘feedback’ logic, to a safer, smoother ‘feed-forward’ one.

Lamborghini have pushed the boundaries of its technology systems, as visually demonstrated by the new Human-Machine Interface – the HMI. It may not have been creatively named, but what it does is certainly impressive.

Traditional, and now somewhat archaic, buttons have been removed in place for the 8.4-inch multi-touch screen display – the HMI. 

The screen allows you to control almost everything, from the entertainment to the highly sophisticated driving dynamics. It also has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto installed, which is pretty a cool quirk. 

Live traffic alerts will also display here, and you are able to use the HMI to adjust the lights inside the cockpit as you please.

A telemetry system is also in place, featuring two new communicating cameras in order to improve the quality – as well as safety – of the overall drive. 

Huracan Evo Specs and Performance

The new Huracán Evo boasts the same 5204cc naturally aspirated V10 engine as its powerful relative, the Performante.

Both therefore share a number of identical performance figures, hitting 631bhp at 8,000rpm, 442lb ft of torque at 6,500rpm.

That works out as an improvement of 30bhp and 29lbs better than the old Huracán LP-610.

The upgraded Huracán Evo hits a top speed of over 325km/h (202mph), which is an increase of at least 6km/h (3.7mph) on that of the Huracán LP580-2 Coupé and the same as the LP610-4 Coupé.

The supercar also set great times of 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in 2.9 seconds, and 0-200km/h (124mph) in 9 seconds flat, identically matching the Huracán Performante to 100km/h and a mere 0.1 seconds slower to 200km/h. 

Lambo have pumped money into the development of futuristic Magnetorheological suspension, which intelligently uses electromagnetic currents to smooth the bumps and cracks on the road.

With such technology working alongside the LDVI and V10 engine, it comes to no surprise that the Evo knows its way around the track.

There are plenty of driving settings to experiment with in your spare time or on the track, including the Strada, Sports and Corsa modes.

Drive is sent to all four wheels through a seven-speed twin-clutch gearbox, which is where things get pretty intricate.

The Huracan Evo's Four-Wheel Steering

Lamborghini have utilised a combination of the active front steering system and the rear steering system in order to provide optimum control under all circumstances.

Equipped with an EPS (Electronic Power Steering) system, the Evo is able to adjust its handling to ensure that the driver receives the most comfortable experience when behind the wheel. 

That’s not the only fancy steering system it possesses, with the LDC (Lamborghini Dynamic Steering) programme also on board.

The LDC supports the EPS by dynamically offering a variation of the steering ratio, once again adjusting to the driving circumstances.

The high-tech systems manage the Huracán’s four-wheel steering (also known as all-wheel drive) in order to cater to the driving mode selected, offering a fluid and efficient drive.

How Much Does the New Lamborghini Huracan Cost?

The new Huracán Evo is expected to be up for sale at the price of $261,274 in the USA, and £198,000 in the UK. 

A relatively modest price for a Lamborghini, but the Evo still costs around $60k more than the McLaren 570S and is even more expensive than the masterpiece that is the 2018 McLaren 600LT – which itself is $240,000 (£185,500).


Its price has increased slightly in comparison to the original Huracán, which was sold at around $250,000 (£190,000) when it first hit the road. 

Regardless, it is around $13,000 cheaper than the Huracán Performante, which is essentially an Evo with a rear wing and the active aero features.

As far as supercars go, it is far from an extortionate price for its customers, with the legendary Aventador starting at $393,695 in the USA (£271,146 in the UK), over $100,000 more expensive than the Evo.

How Does the Huracan Evo Compare to Other Lamborghinis?

It may be missing the more advanced adaptive aerodynamic package, but the new Evo possesses a number of similarities to the Performante, including similar wheels, optimised intakes, an improved under-body and raised exhausts.

Sharing almost identical performance figures, we expect many supercar drivers to favour the Evo over the more expensive Performante. 

Against its original 2014 version, the Huracán Evo has evolved and upgraded to become a more efficient, aerodynamic and quite possibly better-looking supercar. 

Lambo have claimed an incredible 500% improvement on the downforce of the original Huracán, making the Evo a far more aerodynamically efficient monster this time around.

The main difference, as you may have gathered, is its interior technology, which impacts and essentially controls what we see on the exterior.

Despite some performance and aesthetic dissimilarities, the computer control systems are the primary difference, with the Evo far outweighing the 2014 model on the tech front. 

Our Summary of the Huracan Evo 

With its highly complex control systems and technology far too sophisticated for most of us to really comprehend, this Huracán Evo may not get the credit it deserves until you dive deeper into what’s really going on under the bonnet.

For a reasonable price amongst its competitors, the new Evo offers a modern, stylish and exhilarating upgrade to the already-popular 2014 Huracán.

At first sight, it is mean-looking, aggressive and sharp, exactly what we have come to expect from one of the most easily recognisable manufacturers in the world.

Lamborghini’s design features are always going to turn heads, and what’s great about the Evo is that it can perform on the track as well as the road.

Matching its more expensive sibling – the Performante – for speed, the Evo will undoubtedly be a favourite among many supercar fanatics. It has certainly impressed us!

The original Huracán was not perfect, and this facelift is exactly what was needed.

Its performance has improved, its exterior is more appealing, and its interior systems have seen remarkable upgrades.
