The Huracan Evo is more than just the entry-level Lambo. It's arguably the most fun-to-drive four-wheel-drive Lamborghini out there, thanks to a brilliant CPU that can adjust power between individual wheels and even brake a wheel to help you slide it with grace. Numerous reviewers have noted that the Evo is arguably the easiest supercar to drive on the limit, but those hoping for a bargain in the next Audi R8 will be disappointed - the gyroscopic tech that helps make all this possible won't be shared. With 631 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque being split among each corner, traction off the line is phenomenal. The seven-speed dual-clutch responds with lightning ferocity, making for sprints from 0-62 mph in just under three seconds. Top speed is around 325 km/h, or 202 mph in American English. Doing without turbocharging, the 5.2-liter V10 sounds absolutely glorious as it howls through the gears, something that the likes of Ferrari and McLaren can no longer boast.
The Huracan Evo RWD is endowed with the same engine, but it produces less power and twist to make it more manageable. Mind you, 602 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque are not to be scoffed at, and although the rear wheels are the only ones being engaged, the same transmission allows the RWD to accelerate from 0-62 mph just four-tenths of a second slower than the regular Evo. Top speed is shared, but the regular Evo has a better power-to-weight ratio which should make it quicker on a track despite its added heft. Lamborghini recognizes this and has calibrated everything to make the car more fun to drive, not just to decimate lap records. Traction control won't suddenly cut torque and unsettle the car when you get it sideways. The result is a car that is gloriously manageable when you're at opposite lock and burnouts outside your favorite boutique coffee bistro are easily accomplished.
