Lamborghini Huracán Evo review – living with it

We spent six months living with a Huracán Evo Spyder on evo's Fast Fleet, and it was just as spine-tingling as you'd expect

  • Powertrain is simply immense; impressive new-found balance and sophistication
  • All-wheel-drive models aren’t quite as sharp to drive as RWDs; interior interfaces less than brilliant

In the interests of consumer testing, we ran a Huracán Evo Spyder for six months on evo's Fast Fleet to get under the skin of – and bid farewell to – Lamborghini's V10 supercar. Someone had to, didn't they?

Despite a wave of new-age hybrid supercars emerging since the Huracán first arrived almost a decade ago, the Lambo's drama, noise and sheer excitement take some beating in 2023. Every moment behind the wheel was special, and that searing V10 served as an ear-splitting antidote to more muted, turbocharged rivals and silent EVs. If you don't mind the attention and stone-faced stares that a matte blue V10 Lamborghini attracts, the Huracán Evo delivers where it counts.

"It’s Lamborghini at its best", said Stuart Gallagher after we handed the keys back. "Some of today’s supercars have become too sanitised until you wind them up and light the fuses that allow them to explode into life and become the cars their creators set out for them to be from the outset but were required to wind back the theatricals to broaden the appeal. Lamborghini doesn’t do half measures or compromises when it comes to experiences, and it’s all the better for it."

The Huracan certainly wasn't perfect – its astonishingly loud exhaust note wasn't to all tastes and we wished for more drive mode customisation – but in Evo form, it's everything you'd want from a supercar with an underlying polish that you might not expect. We loved it.
