This Italian sports car is the next stage of EVOlution in Lamborghini's V10 engine lineup. Wedding sleek design to powerful performance, this automotive masterpiece demands attention wherever it goes.
Hey guys, today I'm in a 2021 Lamborghini Huracán EVO. Never driven an EVO, I know there's a lot to talk about with this car. A lot has changed since the first generation Huracán and this replaces the first generation Huracán, as well as the Performante. This is just the only Huracán you can buy, this along with the Spyder of course. 631 brake horsepower from a 5.2 liter naturally aspirated V10. This is it guys, this is the last naturally aspirated motor of really any of the modern exotics. Blaring of course the turbocharged, Ferrari has gone turbocharged, Lambo is the last one. Zero to 60 in 2.6 seconds, and it is just so easy. Top speed is over 200 miles an hour. Seven speed, double clutch transmission. Shifts are mesmerizingly quick. Literally no time. I mean, everything is on the steering wheel. Your turn signals, much like Ferrari. So we are in sport mode currently. Of course, you do have your strata, sport, corsa mode. Street, sport, and then track mode essentially. So smooth.
Now, we are in sport mode. If I put that into corsa mode, you'll notice the difference. Put it in corsa mode, the entire rev counter changes. Much more aggressive looking now, and shifts, everything's a bit louder, a bit more tensed up. It's a much more intense shift, much more impactful. Oh yeah. Just kicks you in the back. Rose to 8,500 RPM, and it is just one of the finest sounds. Oh, geez. And the brakes. Yeah, this is the best handling I've ever felt in a car. Steering is incredibly quick, like super quick. This might be some of the sharper steering I've ever felt in a car. Even faster than Ferrari steering. Now this car just looks like a face lift and a bit more power, but it is so much more beneath the skin. A lot has gone on internally with the car to make this probably the best driving Huracán ever. Of course, it's not quite as hardcore as the Performante, but...
And we still have 5,000 RPM to go. I mean, that is just insane. This is, there's no other way of putting it, a proper Lambo color. If any car is going to be painted bright green, it's a Lambo. Green seats, green interior stitching, green accents in the interior, green brake calipers. It does have carbon ceramic brakes. Honestly, these are not like the hardcore race seats, but surprisingly relatively comfortable for what the car is. You also have a new duck bill spoiler in the back, which looks great, kind of gives the car a bit more curvature. And inside, of course, you still have many hexagons, literally everywhere you look. That is the pattern of this car. Compared to the first gen Huracán, this has of course improved arrow, this also has torque vectoring. They've worked their magic with this so much, in fact, that this has seven times as much down force as the first generation Huracán. One of the biggest things, it has rear-wheel steering, which just transforms the car. Makes the car much more nimble at slow speeds, and more stable at high speeds. Yeah, it's just so smooth, and then popcorn on the overrun. So what does zero to 60 in two and a half seconds feel like? Well, let's find out.
12 seconds later.
Oh, Jesus Christ. Feels like that. That is super rough. Who needs coffee? To see how far Lambo has come, it is just insane. Now they're producing cars that are breaking Nürburgring lap records. They used to not be like that, they used to just be known for building big V12 heavy, but very fast, super cars. Visibility is not fantastic, of course. It's not as bad as the V12 cars. I mean, it is pretty bad. I can't lie. This is the easiest supercar to drive. A hundred percent. It is Audi-based beneath, but this is also the best-looking Huracán. Maybe the rear-wheel drive version of EVO is probably a bit better looking in the front grille, but you have new redesigned front fascia, redesigned rear fascia and diffuser, the exhaust has been moved up towards the center of the rear, and they just look fantastic just like the Performante. And of course, the interior is very well thought out. One of the biggest changes is you do have this very lovely, I think it's the eight-inch touch display. Makes everything a bit easier to access and to kind of fiddle with some of the settings. Yeah, this thing is just incredible.
And of course, it is all-wheel drive, so it's a bit more of a comfortable feeling behind the wheel. It's not going to completely slip out from underneath you. You want to downshift just for fun, like you don't even need to. I don't think I'd ever really put it in strata mode. I mean, yeah, don't see why. It's just beggar's belief how good this thing is in the corners. Man, I wish we had better roads here. I'm in Tampa, Florida, so this is pretty much the only decent road here. The windy bit's only about 15 seconds. So it's really all I get, but man, this thing would be good. Lamborghini has just stepped it up drastically. I can't say it enough. What they've done with some of these cars is just insane. Styling wise, Huracán is already a fantastic-looking car, and they've added even more hexagons and angles and crazy patterns. Looks even better. That rear diffuser looks fantastic.
So I was just sitting in a traffic light, of course, you're going to be bombarded with photos and attention. If you buy a bright green Huracán, you're going to have to expect some attention. That's just how it is. Paddles of course are on the column, not the steering wheel, that is preferred for, at least actually the majority of people. Center console, of course, that famous start button is just... Feel like a 10-year-old again every time I use it. Just having that V10 orchestra behind you is worth the price. So emotional. Right, so that concludes the Huracán EVO. Thank you guys for watching.
