Lamborghini launches the Huracan EVO in India
February 8, 2019 – Luxury sports car brand Automobili Lamborghini has launched the new Lamborghini Huracan EVO in India - the next generation V10 super sports car, based on the performance of the Huracén Performante and incorporating next-generation vehicle dynamic control and aerodynamics.
It goes without saying that the Huracan EVO makes an impactful presence with its design. “The all new Huracan EVO is much more agile, light and nimble than its predecessor. Lamborghini has gone the extra mile to bring out the best in this new supercar, both in terms of design dynamics and technology. The Huracan EVO is certainly an impressive upgrade from the Lamborghini stable. As the customer expectations for super Luxury cars evolves in India, we have received an overwhelming response, and Huracan EVO will further help establish a stronger connect with the growing number of super car enthusiasts in the country," says Mr. Sharad Agarwal, Head, Lamborghini India.
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 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.
The car features the Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (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. Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (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. 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 (LDS) allows 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-responsive car with unparalleled level of control. Processing data in real time, the Huracán EVO recognizes the driver’s intentions through steering wheel, brake and accelerator pedal inputs, engaged gear and the driving modes selected: STRADA, SPORT or CORSA.
External conditions are also determined through active suspension and all-wheel drive grip estimation function. All of this information is analysed by LDVI, which turns them into precise inputs for the vehicle dynamic system. Which means the car doesn’t just react, but predicts the best driving set-up for the next moment.
The design of Huracan EVO defines the aerodynamic superiority and enhanced driving dynamics of the car. A new front bumper gives the car a low, assertive personality. The side profile of the Huracán 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 Huracán 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 air flow, clearly asserting the car’s aerodynamic abilities.
A new 8.4” HMI capacitive touchscreen, located in the centre console, 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 CarPlay with smartphone integration, at the cabin occupants’ disposal.
