So good Bobby Axel Rod Would Trade Wags For It.
Lamborghini, the name resonates worldwide—wherever you go, no matter how far or how wide you may travel it’s a car that you cannot escape. And for a great reason, just last week Lamborghini unveiled a beast that will see your boss save it as his screensaver on his phone, name drop it amongst his colleagues sipping on a round of scotches and step out of it like Bruce Wayne in Gotham City.
Enter Lamborghini’s Hur8acan Evo. The original Huracan was described by Top Gear to be ‘too competent for its own good.’ However, the rear-drive Huracan has been received well by fellow Lambo drivers and civilians all around the globe. And why wouldn’t it? When you’re able to jet to 100km in 2.9 seconds criticism doesn’t apply to you.
Whilst the need for speed is always a topic at the forefront of any auto-enthusiast’s mind, the real show-stopper is the upgrades in the Huracan’s tech. With a new 8.4-inch capacitive touchscreen controlling an infotainment system, compatibility with Apple CarPlay and dual-camera telemetry, the Huracan is matching raising the bar in super-car technology. The touchscreen will govern the car’s functions including; seats, climate, and the status of the LDVI system in real-time. The top speed is said to sit around 325km per hour and whilst you may not be able to reach that speed, it’s great to have as a safety blanket when measuring whose car is faster. Chances are it will be yours.
As Mr. Domenicali added at the unveiling last week, “The Huracan EVO is the very definition of evolution as it’s a step ahead in terms of redefining parameters. Equipped with the finest and purest, the Huracan EVO has already piqued the interest of Lamborghini owners in Australia. It is remarkably easy to drive while delivering the most responsive, sensory and agile driving experience, in every environment.”
So here are the stats:
- The Huracan EVO outputs 640hp (470kW) at 8,000 rpm with 600mn of torque delivered at 6,500 rpm.
- It has a dry weight of 1,422 kg
- The Huracan EVO reaches a weight-to-power ratio of 2.22 kg/hp
- Accelerates from 0 to 100km in 2.9 seconds and from 0 to 200km in 9.0 seconds.
- Obverse to that it reaches 0 from 100 in 31.9m.
Ok, so you know enough to ask the question, how much? The Lamborghini Huracan Evo will arrive at a handsome $459,000 AUD.
