Lamborghini Huracán Evo review – performance and 0-62mph time

All are faster than they need to be, and that dual-clutch make all Huracáns incredibly rapid away from the lights, but you’ll never feel short-changed in-gear either

Evo rating
  • 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

All Lamborghini Huracáns certainly have the performance to back up their supercar looks, with every variant reaching 62mph in or around three seconds, depending on the specific model. The 602bhp RWD Spyder is the slowest of the bunch, reaching 62mph in 3.5sec, with the coupe 0.2sec quicker at 3.3sec.

The all-wheel-drive Evo has a more potent 631bhp engine and the extra driven wheels to help it off the line, with the coupe being the fastest of all Huracáns with a staggering 2.9sec time to 62mph. The Spyder ups this to 3.1sec, and all reach 202mph aside from the RWD Spyder at 201mph.

The STO is a more complicated case, as it’s the lightest version of all at just 1339kg (dry) and features the full 631bhp, but being rear-wheel drive takes a tad longer than the Evo coupe to reach 62mph at 3.0sec dead. The STO has a lower torque figure than the all-wheel drive too at 417lb ft, and due to the very aggressive aero finds itself with the lowest top speed of all Huracáns at 192mph.

Beyond just numbers, being without a turbocharger makes the Huracán feel different to most of its rivals on the road, as while it does without a definite turbo-induced rush of torque, the noise and response the 5.2-litre V10 gives back in return makes it feel more exciting more of the time.
