The heavy downpour last weekend proved no match for the storm Lamborghini Kuala Lumpur brought to the Sepang International Circuit last weekend with the new Huracan Evo.
With 640 hp and 600 Nm of torque from a 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 powering the 1,422 kg mid-ship, 0 to 100 km/h is annihilated in just 2.9 seconds – a performance which rivals the Porsche 911 GT2 RS and the new Ferrari F8 Tributo – onward to a top speed in excess of 340 km/h.
Due to arrive in Malaysia by Q4 of 2019, the Lamborghini Huracan Evo is expected to fetch upwards of RM1.1 million before the duties kick in.
The Huracan Evo feature Lamborghini’s new rear-wheel steering, torque vectoring and all-wheel drive systems – which are all integral to the new Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI).
The LDVI is a central processing unit that controls every aspect of the car’s behaviour where it is capable of anticipating the car’s reaction and the driver’s input – priming the car for the best possible performance whether it’s steaming into a bend of bursting out of a corner.
The LDVI is aided by the Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI) system where a set of sensors and accelerators are used to monitor the Huracan Evo’s behaviour. The car’s active magnetic suspension will then react accordingly to the inputs from the LPI.
Together with the Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) for the most responsive steering and rear wheel steering, the Huracan is said to be ultra agile and offers unprecedented levels of control.
With the LDVI and all its supporting systems, the car can anticipate the driver’s inputs through the throttle, brakes and steering, gear changes and drive mode chosen.
The “feed forward logic” adds icing to the cake where the car doesn’t just react, but also predicts the best possible driving setup for what’s about to happen ahead.
The Huracan Evo on display was presented with 20-inch Aesir rims wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tyres while the exterior is finished with a new Arancio Xanto orange, four layer paint job.
Inside, an 8.4-inch capacitive touchscreen dominates the centre console, along with a mix of leather and alcantara trims. Carbon forged composites and Lamborghini’s patented Carbon Skin can be specified while the rest of the interior can be customised according to the depth of your pockets.
