Lamborghini Preps Huracan Evo Performante

Spy Shots / 4 Comments

A hardcore variant of the Huracan Evo is coming.

If you wanted the fastest and most powerful Lamborghini Huracan on the market, you had to opt for the track-focused Huracan Performante. This was great if you planned to use the car on a race track but rather annoying if you just wanted to drive it every day. That's why Lamborghini released the Huracan Evo, an updated model with the power of the Performante but the livability of a standard Huracan.

It is powered by a 5.2-liter V10 rated at 640 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque, enabling a 0-60 mph time of just 2.9 seconds. Lamborghini also threw in a new 8.4-inch infotainment system, making the Evo's cabin feel a lot more high-tech. The Huracan Evo is certainly impressive but it seems like Lamborghini hasn't finished improving it.

Our spy photographers recently spotted what appears to be a test mule for the Huracan Evo. This may look like a production Evo but if you look at the engine cover, the glass has been replaced by louvers, something we've never seen before on any Huracan. It looks like the type of engine cover typically seen on the Aventador and could preview an upcoming Huracan Evo Performante.

Upfront, the bumper color doesn't quite match the rest of the vehicle and is taped, meaning Lamborghini may be using the standard Evo's bumper for testing purposes. The car is also wearing Italian test plates, which further adds to the mystery of what Lamborghini is testing here.

If this is a Performante version of the Huracan Evo, we expect the output of the 5.2-liter V10 to be increased from its current 640 hp rating. The production version will likely have a large rear wing and front aero as well as a significant weight reduction. This is all pure speculation based on this test mule but it clearly looks like Lamborghini has another Huracan variant in the works.
