Introduction

What Car? says...

We all know that, when it comes to movies, sequels are rarely better than the original. But when it comes to supercars, the opposite is often true. Take Lamborghini for example. The Gallardo, the predecessor to the Lamborghini Huracán, was a bit of a disappointment when it was first released, with a poor handling balance and a troublesome single-clutch automatic gearbox. 

All told, it took six years for Lambo to create a Gallardo that driving enthusiasts lusted after, in the form of the rear-wheel-drive LP550-2 Balboni. And now, it looks like history might be repeating itself. 

What you’re looking at here is the Lamborghini Huracán Evo and it’s essentially a completely reengineered version of the legendary Italian specialist’s smallest supercar. And, if history has anything to teach us, this is a good thing. Because, while the original Huracán certainly didn’t lack in raw performance, it was never the most exciting supercar to drive. 

Now, though, the Huracán has inherited the 631bhp engine that debuted in the awe-inspiring – but limited-run – Huracán Performante, as well as receiving a number of chassis tweaks to notch the entertainment up a bit. But that’s not all. As well as this four-wheel-drive monster, the Huracán Evo line-up also offers a 602bhp, rear-wheel-drive model, aptly named the Evo RWD. It’s lighter, does without the rear wheel steering system of it’s four-wheel drive range partner and is designed to offer a more raw driving experience.

Key rivals include the McLaren 720S, Mercedes-AMG GT-R and Porsche 911 Turbo S, against which the Lamborghini is competitively priced. However, the Audi R8 makes the Huracán look rather expensive, since both cars use the same basic underpinnings and V10 engine.

So, how does the Huracán compare with its peers? And which version makes the most sense? Read on over the next few pages to find out. And if reading this whets your appetite for a new car, our New Car Buying service is here to make life easy while saving you a packet.
