Lamborghini Huracan EVO debuts in Singapore

We check out the first 'bull' to have the Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI) predictive logic.

Launched to media and customers today at the Lamborghjni Singapore showroom, the Huracan EVO is the first car in the stable to have nifty tech like rear-wheel steering and torque vectoring. Add in the current features like dynamic steering, magnetic dampers, stability control and you have what the Italian carmakers call Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI).

It works based on predictive data and is based on 'feed-forward', rather than feedback. This, Lamborghini claims will result in more precise controls, performance and overall drivability.

"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 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, " he continued.

The special-edition model is powered by the familiar normally aspirated 5.2-litre V10, augmented with titanium inlet valves. It pushes a mad 640 bhp and 600 Nm of torque. 0-100 km/h is done in 2.9 seconds and it will go on to hit 325 km/h where roads allow.

Exterior design is not much different from the regular Huracan at first glance. But look closer and you'll notice that larger intakes in the front, new side intakes and a new 20-inch Aesir wheel design help to mark it as the EVO.

The rear also sports a new dual exhaust with twin outlets that are integrated into the car's rear bumper.

Inside it's a pretty luxurious place to be with a mix of leather and alcantara throughout the cabin. The stitching found on the interior panels for the launch car featured an Arancio Dryope colour to match the exterior body shade. Cool stuff.

Other optional trim features like Carbon Forged Composites and Carbon Skin are available upon request. But do note that the base price is an already eye-popping S$998,000, without COE! On our roads in Q4 of 2019 - keep a lookout, there are bound to be a few running around despite its price.
