Lamborghini has pulled the covers off its updated and more powerful Huracán, following a number of preview images posted in the past few days.

The new-for-2019 Ferrari 488 rival now adopts the Huracán Evo nameplate, reflecting its changes. The images reveal a number of styling changes designed to offer "aerodynamic superiority", with a new front bumper bringing enlarged intakes and an integrated splitter.

Side-on, there's also revised intakes, but the most notable changes are at the rear, with a new full-width intake echoing that of its recently updated Audi R8 sibling. New twin exhaust outlets are positioned higher up the rear fascia, while a new integrated spoiler better balances downforce and drag.  A super-slippery underbody also features. 

Following on from the Nurburgring record-holding Huracán Performante launched last year, the standard Huracán now benefits from the same power output from the naturally-aspirated 5.2-litre V10. The 29bhp boost, up to 631bhp, and 600Nm of torque means a 0-62mph time of 2.9sec (down 0.3sec) and 0-124mph in nine seconds. The top speed is unchanged at 201mph.

Lamborghini has also focused its efforts on the Huracan's chassis, but instead of messing with the nuts and bolts it has introduced a new chassis control system. Called Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI) the system is set to control every aspect of the car's dynamics. Sensors constantly monitor the vehicle's acceleration, roll, pitch and yaw rate and can actively predict driver behaviour, while a new generation of magneto rheological adaptive dampers is brought in.

Enhanced torque vectoring in the all-wheel-drive system allows traction to be directed through any of the four wheels, while Lambo has also worked on the dynamic steering system to "provide higher responsiveness in corners whiile requiring the lowest steering angles".

The Huracán Evo's interior has benefitted from a new 8.4-inch capacitive touchscreen in the centre console. It controls everything from the climate control to the use of Apple CarPlay, with a more advanced voice command system than that in use in the Aventador. New options include a dual-camera telemetry system with a high-capacity hard disk.

In addition to the standard changes, Lamborghini has also increased the Huracán's range of personalisation options, including new wheel and colour choices. Lightweight interior materials, including forged composits and a patented 'carbon skin', are available on request. A number of upholstery options, and a range of new style packs, have also been announced.

Lambo will commence deliveries of the new Huracán in the spring, with initial pricing details at £165,256 excluding taxes. No images of the Spyder convertible have been revealed as yet, but we know that car will benefit from the same changes when it goes on sale in a couple of months.

Brabham BT46 or......

 For £15K over the conversion price, I’d take the Huracan, just as fast in the real a world where we all drive the Public Roads.....

I have no desire to stop

I have no desire to stop people having a PDK if they want one. 

 

So I don't understand whey people want to tell me that I can't have, or shouldn't want, a manual.  I like changing gear, very much indeed.

 

I absolutely would not buy this car for that reason.  I would not buy an Alpine A110, or a Guilia Quadrifoglio (particularly as they actually build a manual for the European market). 

 

So yes, as Peter has said, I am confined to the used market.

You only spend about 2% of the time changing gear. Do you so dislike the other 98% of the time that you'd rather not bother? I simply don't believe it's possible to enjoy changing gear that much. Have you tried pretending to change gear? What, exactly, do you like so much about changing gear? With modern 'boxes there's no skill involved so it can't be a sense of satisfaction.

Go on: sell me the delights of manual gearboxes - especially when I'm stuck in slow-moving traffic for hours on end.

I'll take that one

Cheaper, lighter, less complicated, more reliable, only ever in the gear you desired, smaller, less maintenance.

But it's a personal thing I guess

The Guilia Quadrifoglio manual is mainly for US I think, anyway the few reviews I read of the stick shifter strongly suggest you stick with the automatic. It's neither Porsche quality neither great.

I agree, I also like changing gear, my eunos na has a lovely short change that is satisfying to use, but I also get why people want an auto with manual control as my commute is often stop start and an auto in those conditions is great. With this Lambo though I can't understand why they don't offer a manual, surely there is enough profit in the car to have dveloped one as an option even if it is an option rarely ticked?

Not a deal breaker for me to be honest but I get your sentiment.

An epic looking supercar

It always staggered me, and it still does, that some of the motoring press critcised the Huracan as being dull to look at, even bland. Sure, I don't think it's as good looking as the Gallardo but it still posesses at least the same presence, excitement and jaw dropping looks as its predecessor. Which also means it's more staggering to look at than every rival IMO.

I think it's one of the all-time greats. It isn't ground-breaking or trend-setting but, in my opinion, together with the new Jimny, it's simply one of the best looking cars of the last twenty-odd years.
