Lamborghini Singapore launched the new Lamborghini Huracan EVO at the Lamborghini Singapore showroom. Based on the prowess and performance of the Huracan Performante, the next generation V10 super sports car incorporates next-generation vehicle dynamic control and aerodynamics.
The Huracan EVO features the 5.2 I naturally aspirated Lamborghini V10 engine, uprated to produce higher power output and an emotional and powerful sound, with Titanium intake valves and refined lightweight exhaust system.
“The Huracan EVO is the epitome of evolution. Harnessing the extraordinary abilities of the Huracan Performante, it combines state-of-the-art vehicle dynamic control to amplify the everyday Huracan driving experience,” says Mr. Davide Sfrecola, Area Manager South East Asia at Automobili Lamborghini. “Lighter, nimbler and much more agile than its predecessor, the Huracan EVO delivers the most responsive and sensory driving experience, in every environment, and has already piqued the interest of Lamborghini owners here.”
The presence and purpose of the Huracan EVO resonate throughout its design, but also in the notes from its exhaust, with a super exhaust sound reflecting the increased power and dynamic abilities of this latest Lamborghini.
Mr. Andy Goh, Deputy Chief Executive Officer at EuroSports Auto, says: “Lamborghini is leading the advancement to the highest level of the super sports car and has gone the extra mile to bring out the best in the all-new Huracan EVO- both in terms of design dynamics and technology. Equipped with the finest and purest, it is remarkably easy to drive. Lamborghini enjoys a loyal customer base in Singapore and the Huracan EVO will further strengthen its desirability to both existing and new customers here.”
Technological evolution amplifies driving emotion
The Huracan EVO outputs 640 hp (470 kW) at 8,000 rpm with 600 Nm of torque delivered at 6,500 rpm. With a dry weight of 1,422 kg, the Huracan EVO reaches a weight-to-power ratio of 2.22 kg/hp, accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and from 0-200 km/h in 9.0 seconds. Braking from 100 km/h to 0 is achieved in just 31.9 m, with a top speed of more than 325 km/h.
Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo lntegrata (LDVI)
The Huracan EVO features new Lamborghini rear-wheel steering and a torque vectoring system working on the four wheels, while at the heart of the car is the new feature of Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo lntegrata (LDVI): a Central Processing Unit that controls every aspect of the car’s dynamic behaviour, fully integrating all of the car’s dynamic systems and set-up to anticipate the next move and needs of the driver, interpreting this into perfect driving dynamics.
Lamborghini Piattaforma lnerziale (LPI), a comprehensive set of accelerators and gyroscope sensors placed at the car’s center of gravity, has been enhanced to version 2.0. With improved precision, it monitors in real-time the dynamic vehicle attitude regarding lateral, longitudinal and vertical accelerations, as well as roll, pitch, and yaw rate. The magnetorheological suspension, upgraded to version 2.0, instantaneously adapts the damping following inputs from the LPI. A new advanced traction control system, together with enhanced all-wheel drive and torque vectoring, allows traction to be directed to a single wheel as required.
Enhanced Lamborghini Dynamic Steering CLDS), able to provide higher responsiveness in corners while requiring the lowest steering angles, is now coupled with rear-wheel steering in order to ensure agility at low speed, as well as maximum stability in high-speed cornering and under braking in the most severe conditions.
The unique combination of all these systems is governed by Lamborghini’s LDVI to create a super agile and responsive car with an unparalleled level of control. Processing data in real time, the Huracan EVO recognises the driver’s intentions through the steering wheel, brake and accelerator pedal inputs, engaged gear and the driving modes selected via ANIMA controller: STRADA, SPORT or CORSA.
External conditions are determined through active suspension and all-wheel drive grip estimation function. All of this information is analysed and processed by LDVI, which turns them into precise inputs for the vehicle dynamic system. A ‘feedforward logic’ is implemented via the dynamic controller, which means the car doesn’t just react. but predicts the best driving set-up for the next moment.
In STRADA, the Huracan EVO is agile and capable of driving enjoyment, whereas in SPORT it becomes playful, intuitive and extremely exciting. In CORSA the Huracan EVO is sharp, reactive and exhilarating for the most extreme driving environments, such as racetracks.
Design – aerodynamic superiority
The distinctive design defines the aerodynamic superiority and enhanced driving dynamics of the Huracan EVO. A new front bumper gives the car a low, assertive personality, but more importantly assures aerodynamic efficiency via the front splitter with integrated wing. The enlarged air intakes feature the Ypsilon shape that is inherent in Lamborghini design DNA.
The side profile of the Huracan EVO is articulately dynamic, featuring Lamborghini’s hexagon design references in the windows, the new wheel design and around the new side air intakes.
It is at the rear of the car that the Huracan EVO most distinctively evokes the power and dynamism that lies within. Reflecting the wide, open, naked rear seen in its race-car brother, the twin outlets of the new sports exhaust system are positioned high up in the car’s rear bumper. At the upper end of the tail an integrated, slotted spoiler provides enhanced airflow, clearly asserting the car’s aerodynamic abilities.
The Huracan EVO’s aero competency continues with the underbody, which has been shaped to maximize aerodynamic efficiency: the new integrated aerodynamic styling of the Huracan EVO improves downforce and aerodynamic efficiency more than five times over the first generation Huracan.
A new 8.4″ HMI capacitive touchscreen, located in the centre console just above the start button, puts connectivity at the driver’s fingertips, with multi-finger gesture control. Governing car functions including seats, climate and the status of the LDVI system in real-time it also puts all infotainment, such as Apple CarPiay with smartphone integration, at the cabin occupants’ disposal. A multimedia system incorporates connected navigation and entertainment including web radio and video player. The intuitive interface allows voice commands and puts the driver in touch with Siri.
An optional dual-camera telemetry system is also offered via the touchscreen, allowing advanced telemetry recording and analysis. An integrated high-capacity hard disk is also available.
Colour/Trim and Lamborghini Ad Personam
The Huracan EVO is presented in Arancio Xanto, an iconic new Lamborghini four-layer colour. New 20″ Aesir rims, dedicated to the EVO, are complemented by Pirelli P Zero tires.
Inside, the Huracan EVO is a luxurious driver’s car. The interior features a dedicated new EVO trim in Alcantara and leather mix, with Arancio Dryope details matching the body tone.
The new sporty and elegant trim features a number of bi-colour and trim options as well as a highly sportive Alcantara option. Lightweight materials such as Carbon Forged Composites and Lamborghini’s patented Carbon Skin are available on request and are highlighted by the new customizable ambient lights feature within the cabin.
Both the exterior and interior of the Huracan EVO are designed to maximise the specification possibilities, with several new options such as a wide range of Style Packs in shiny black and body colour as well as Lamborghini’s Ad Personam program, which offers a virtually limitless opportunity for owners to customise their Lamborghini.
The new Lamborghini Huracan EVO will arrive in Singapore in 04 2019 and retail car base price starts from SGD 998,000 excluding COE, including GST.
