There has never, ever been a boring Lamborghini, says Top Gear. But the original Huracn was arguably "just too competent for its own good". Thankfully, the new Huracn Evo is just "heaving with hot tech, yet somehow feels more organic". Lamborghini claims the new model has seven times the aerodynamic efficiency of the outgoing car, thanks to a new front spoiler, diffuser and air curtain, new rear diffuser, cleaner underbody, repositioned exhaust now with titanium intake valves and ducktail spoiler. But focusing on that stuff is "missing the bigger picture". The Evo represents "a philosophical step-change for the Italians" by introducing Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI), a central supercomputer.
The previous standard Huracn was one-dimensional on the road, prioritising traction-biased understeer over front-end bite and feeling a little inertas a result, says James Taylor in Car magazine.The Evo is "far more nuanced, malleable and playful". In the Bahrain circuit's long, fast sweepers, its throttle response feels "as sharp as ever", with no turbochargers to blur the precision of the arc drawn by your foot on the floor-hinged throttle pedal.
What really impresses, says Gallagher, is how the Huracn Evo delivers this new level of precision, agility and confidence-inspiring dynamics without removing any of the excitement, the driver still integral to getting the best from it. The Evo "delivers a visceral and exciting driving experience that makes the car's performance more accessible than ever before".
