Lamborghini is well known for making high-performance cars that the rich and famous love to show off. However, the Italian automaker recently entered the SUV segment with the Urus, and it’s ridiculously fast. But for folks who want a Lambo that doesn’t care about things like cargo space or seating room, look no further than the 2020 Lamborghini Huracán EVO.
A look at the 2020 Lamborghini Huracán EVO’s power
As with most of Lamborghini’s creations, the main things enthusiasts care about are power and speed. According to MotorTrend, a massive, 5.2-liter V10 engine, harnessing 630 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque, powers the Huracán EVO. This potent motor, paired with the car’s relatively lightweight and aerodynamic design, allows the Huracán EVO to reach impressive speeds.
MotorTrend said the Lamborghini Huracán EVO completed the 0-60 split in just 2.5 seconds and hit 100 mph in 5.9 seconds. Overall, it can top out at just over 200 mph. And that’s not the Huracán EVO’s only selling point. MotorTrend pointed out there’s some controversy surrounding ALA, the automaker’s proprietary system that manages aerodynamics. The Huracán EVO doesn’t come with ALA, and for Lambo fans who doubt the effectiveness of this “aero sorcery,” that’s a good thing.
The 2020 Lamborghini Huracán EVO is a true track car
Like many high-performance cars, the Lamborghini Huracán EVO wasn’t necessarily designed for daily driving. It costs well over $260,000, and though it’s durable enough, this Lambo was born to tear up the track. Indeed, it’s one of the fastest track-friendly cars thanks to its power and handling.
One MotorTrend test driver said that “the steering and handling are world-class.” Sure, track times will vary based on driver skill, but the Lamborghini Huracán EVO can handle corners and straights like a champ. And it’s fully road-legal to boot.
However, that’s where this Lambo falters. Though the Huracán EVO costs well over a quarter of a million bucks, it offers a laughably small touchscreen. And MotorTrend said the display’s “indecipherable alien petroglyphs” make the infotainment system hard to use.
A Lambo for one
On top of all that, the Huracán EVO, like most supercars, isn’t exactly great at hauling passengers and their stuff. It offers a paltry 3.5 cubic feet of cargo space. And though the seats are comfortable and luxurious, Lamborghini sacrificed the cabin for aerodynamics.
So, MotorTrend said it best: “If you’re going on a trip, don’t bring a passenger, as the second seat is your luggage compartment.” Sounds like the perfect excuse for some much-needed me-time. And at the end of the day, the Lamborghini Huracán EVO begs to thrill the person in the driver’s seat.
