Since 1963 the Italian car company Lamborghini S.p.A. has been designing and manufacturing luxury sports cars and SUVs that have gained repute and a strong following all over the world. Considered very high-end, the vehicles they make cost a pretty penny more, but that fact has never stopped people everywhere from longing to own and drive one of their fine cars.
At the 2014 Geneva Auto Show, Lamborghini unveiled the Huracan, and then released it to the market for sale in the second half of that year. The car, which boasts a 610 metric horsepower level as well as four-wheel drive, was suited to its name, which is Spanish for ‘hurricane’. Yes, it was a hurricane on wheels.
Now, Lamborghini has released the 2020 Huracan EVO, and six years after the model’s initial release it proves itself better than ever. But most of us are no more familiar with the Huracan that we are nuclear science, though we would like to be able to brag such knowledge. In an effort to expand our own data banks regarding the Huracan, and yours as well, we have done some research and put together a list of facts about the car that will make us all a bit wiser. Warning: This vehicle will impress you. If you want to know about it, you have come to the right place, but be prepared to be bowled over. The 2020 Lamborghini Huracan is one mind-boggling automobile, and not one you will soon forget. Read on and discover a modern-day legend.
10 Things You Didn’t Know About the 2020 Lamborghini Huracan EVO
1, The Body
While not much has changed aesthetically with the Huracan over the years, it remains a wonderful representation of the solutions which Lamborghini has discovered to improve upon its already intriguing aerodynamics, and its appearance continues to be steadfastly loyal to the company’s original vision for the car. The front bumper has maintained its basic Y-shaped quality, while the Countach-inspired lines of its hood skirt the air ducts, which are reflective of the historic Murcielago. The tailpipes are adopted from some of the highest performing models Lamborghini has ever produced, lending to the overall consistency of its design over the years. But the rims, which are 20” Aesirs, and some of the colors, are new, debuting for the first time this year. Lamborghini is proud to say that all of these things combined allow the car to give people a hint of what’s to come without compromising all that was beautiful about the last six years as far as this car is concerned.
2. That Engine, Though…
Yes, that engine. The 2020 Lamborghini Huracan EVO boasts a 90° Multi-point Injection V10 coupled with Direct Stratified Injection; it is located in the middle of the car. It’s capable of achieving 202 mph, and can go from 0 to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds, from 0 to 124 mph in nine seconds, and can brake from 62 to 0 in the short distance of 31.9 meters (just over 100 ft.). It’s enough to give even the least of motorheads the goosebumps, and it makes the hair stand up on the back of the necks of skeptics.
3. Ad Personam
One of the things that makes the Huracan stand out from all others is the Lamborghini Ad Personam. This is the term used by Lamborghini to let you know that when you order your new Huracan, you can customize it to your specifications; check out the incredible Ad Personam Studio for more information. Basically, the company is asking you, ‘How do you want your car?’ To this you simply reply, ‘Fully loaded, with a little extra everything on the side’. After all, if you’re ordering a Huracan at all, you can certainly afford a little more special sauce, right?
4. The Interior
Known for luxury, Lamborghini doesn’t just give you a sports car, they give you a sports car that is as plush as it is fast. An 8.4” touchscreen control center allows for control of the vehicle and all of its entertainment aspects by just tapping on what you desire. The rest of the interior’s design is authentically Italian; for instance, you have upholstery options that include Carbon Skin®, Alcantara, or genuine leather (Carbon Skin® is a carbon fiber upholstery option available only with Lamborghini). When coupled with the other interior options, like the full entertainment system, inner trims, and the like, driving and riding in the Lamborghini is a one-of-kind experience.
5. What is EVO?
Ah, this is a question for the ages, and one that Lamborghini enjoys answering. When you see ‘EVO’, this means that the vehicle is the ‘evolution of the most successful V10 in Lamborghini history’. In other words, the company is continuing its use of their groundbreaking V10 engine, yet showing tangible ingenuity in making it better than ever with each passing year that it is in use; that is the evolution. Technical, yet romantic, these facts have been proven with each and every Lamborghini Huracan that has been sold.
The 2020 Huracan EVO is another high-performance vehicle by Lamborghini that has been altered…from all-wheel-drive to rear-wheel-drive. But why would they do this? Isn’t AWD supposed to be better all-around? The fact is that whenever Lamborghini has converted one of their AWD vehicles over to RWD, everything got better, from the performance to the handling. Because it’s lighter it’s both easier to handle and less expensive, and the lower price can also be attributed to the fact that the AWD system has been eliminated. It just seems to work better for the vehicles they build to operate on a RWD basis, and once you drive one, you’ll understand what they mean.
7. True Colors
We mentioned earlier that new colors had been released for the 2020 Huracan EVO, but what are they? Of course, the color doesn’t affect performance, but it DOES matter, so let’s take a look, shall we?

9. Fuel Economy
This is the one area where potential buyers may feel a bit apprehensive, but just remember, if you can afford the car, you can afford the gasoline. According to Carsdirect.com, the fuel economy is a bit low in comparison to what you may expect. Owners of the new 2020 Lamborghini Huracan EVO will get approximately 13 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway. Like we said, we’re pretty sure you can afford it.
10. Okay, So What About That Price?
So, this is what it all comes down to, isn’t it? The end-all, be-all of Lamborghini ownership. Well, as we’ve mentioned more than once, only some can afford this beautiful, state-of-the-art vehicle. Here’s the answer: The 2020 Lamborghini Huracan EVO starts at a mere $267,569. Monthly payments, for those who are interested, will run between $3,543 and $3,878. Now you have a much better idea where you stand, especially if you have been seriously considering a purchase. Is it worth it? We would say so, but only if you CAN afford it.
By now you have either solidified your decision to buy or abandoned it. Whatever the case may be, you’ll have to admit that this is one cool supercar, worthy of a good drive by anyone who loves the Lamborghini brand name. If you’re getting ready to head to the dealership now, congratulations. If not, better luck next time. But for the time being, keep dreaming, and drive safely.
