Lamborghini Huracán Evo review – design
As dramatic, chiselled and aggressive as ever, the Huracán hasn’t aged a bit
The Huracán’s overall aesthetic hasn’t drastically changed over the years, but the new Evo model did come with new bumpers and wheel designs that do keep it looking fresh. Not that anything with proportions like the Huracán’s would ever date.
From a technical standpoint the design is superbly executed, with a wonderful synergy to the surfacing and lines that reference Lamborghini’s models from both its Gandini and Donckerwolke eras. The reverse shamphers on the bonnet are particular highlights, so too the glasshouse’s integration into the side-mounted intakes.
The pert, shorn and very open rear end is another standout, with all models now featuring the raised exhaust outlets first seen on the Performante. Standard Evo and RWD models are largely free of obvious aero devices, but that’s made up for by the STO, which shares more than a bit of its track-derived aero with the Squadra Corse racers.
In fact, the STO’s bodywork is almost completely bespoke compared to that of its siblings, with new rear bodywork covering a wider rear track, and the installation of a single-piece carbon front clamshell in lieu of the standard car’s more usual wing and bonnet arrangement. This total change to the Huracán’s front-end construction speaks volumes about the amount of effort put into the new STO, and explains its extra expense.
