    Re: Huracan Evo (2019 Facelift)

    My Evo RWD has arrived at my dealer this morning. It was quite amusing on Friday as the Configuration Saturday notification that dropped onto the Lamborghini Unica app looks remarkably similar to my spec so I suspect someone saw it on the production line and decided to do a modified version of it for a RWD spyder.

    Hope it is. Would spec that hue too...

    Re: Huracan Evo (2019 Facelift)

    Watching a car that Iain specced get revealed is always such a satisfying event. Can’t want to see what details he threw into this one. 


    Re: Huracan Evo (2019 Facelift)

    Exciting! I am very happy for you!


    Re: Huracan Evo (2019 Facelift)

    Correct Stefan kiss

    Verde Scandal with Nero Ade with Bianco Leda bicolour interior in leather with inverted stitching. I went for the optional Vanir rims in silver, gloss black Style package, rear diffuser in matte finish, door mirrors in Nero (Ad Personam option), black brake callipers, contrast stitching in Bianco Leda for the steering wheel, DAB, Lifestyle Package (front lifter, glass engine bonnet etc), Apple CarPlay, cruise control (we have lots of average speed cameras here on our motorway network), rear camera, electric/heated seats, embroidered Lamborghini shield on head rests, smart phone interface with connected services and electro chromatic exterior mirrors.

    The aim was to give the car a Miura inspired scheme and it seems to have worked as several people who've seen it all said it reminded them of the Miura in terms of colours. 

    The dealer sales manager is in the car in one of the photo's. The car had just been through the PDI process when I took these photo's today so has still to be cleaned, polished and then the paint protection film applied.

    Re: Huracan Evo (2019 Facelift)

    Very nice specification.  


    Re: Huracan Evo (2019 Facelift)

    Always an event to discover a car you have carefully optioned. Looks very good. I like the new trend of black calipers. 

    Looking forward to your driving impressions, specially compared to the AWD

    Re: Huracan Evo (2019 Facelift)

    There was a previous generation LP580-2 spyder parked behind my car that is also painted in Verde Scandal but it has black wheels, Verde Scandal calipers and a black interior with Verde Scandal leather highlights. That is probably how many people would spec the car but I wanted something with a little more elegance, if that is not too much of a contradiction with such a bright external hue  smiley

    Long before manufacturers realised they could extort silly sums of money from customers for relatively simple things like  brake calliper and wheel colours, silver wheels and black callipers were almost the default so a car now actually stands out more by reverting back to that design IMHO. It also helps to tone these areas down and makes the body colour the focal point of the car. The gloss black highlights also help to tone things down as well.

    I think Lamborghini have really perfected the styling with the Evo RWD as the front looks much simpler and more aggressive than the 4WD version and the rear looks very purposeful with the high mounted exhausts and the revised diffuser with the two large ducts.

    This car will get a lot of attention though the silvers wheels would not be my first preference. The color and styling of the car stand out on their own. They don’t need the bling of silver wheels.

    I do not think the silver rims fit the car too well (it is a sportscar after all) but it is a matter of personal taste and preference, so... Not everyone likes black rims or whatever, so he needs to like his car, not someone else. Smiley

    I wouldn't have gone an elegant approach on a Huracan but Vehicle Virgins (YouTuber) did the same with his Evo Spyder, so I guess there are more people who prefer a more elegant look.

    Ian has so many different cars, I think he has the right to spec them the way he likes them. Smiley

    Not sure if you mean this as a joke but yes, I think they could spice up things (not necessarily white but the typical bronze rims).

    Re: Huracan Evo (2019 Facelift)

    No too contrived. I believe he was looking for elegance . Simplicity is the hallmark of elegance. With the color combination he pretty much was stuck with black wheels but he wanted something different. He succeeded but at a price.

    Congratulations @ISUK - lovely combination . I haven’t followed this thread but interested to hear why you went for this given that the Performante is clearly the best driver’s car in the Lamborghini range? Was it for softer on road use profile?

    Are there any new Performante left 😉?

    Maybe he also decided to pre-order the upcoming STS, a real track machine and...limited edition.

    Exactly- Performantes are very goood value unlike the STS.


    Re: Huracan Evo (2019 Facelift)

    Agreed. The Performante is, compared to the regular Huracan but even compared to the Evo, an excellent value. I think that Lamborghini made a few mistakes in marketing the car and they should have added better track capabilities (seats, head room, etc.) from the start but overall, the Performante is really amazing for the money it costs, indeed.

    The STS? I don't have much to go on about this car, I have some preliminary data about weight and power and the price tag and it will surely be a very interesting car but also a pretty expensive one.

    Best part is though: It is limited. This matters to collectors. Also, this car is supposed to be fully track capable from the start and this could also mean a lot to some buyers. Basically the GT3 RS version of the Huracan Evo, while the Performante is more like some sort of GT3/GT3 RS "hybrid". Smiley

    The Performante is not limited and this was a big mistake in my opinion. Rumors indicate 1700-1800 cars built (very difficult to find the precise numbers, I have to rely on what my regional Lambo rep told me), so I just don't understand why Lamborghini didn't make it a limited series, let's say 2000 pieces at max or whatever but I don't really care, I love this car and every time I drive it, I get goose bumps. My son always doesn't want to get out and my daughter always asks me to drive "ten more minutes", so... Smiley

    Well, the performante is a GT3ish, certainly not a hybrid of a 3 and RS. the suspension, the chassis and what you can do on track with it is near a GT3 capability but not beyond. Smiley remember the track is about cornering and not straight line acceleration.

    I get the excitement though because the engine and the noise of this car play a lot to your enthusiasm. I appreciate it as well but that bloody 4WD....Smiley

    Re: Huracan Evo (2019 Facelift)

    Have you ever driven one?

    In the hands of the same driver, the Performante will be faster on most tracks and this compared to a stock GT3 RS.

    Unfortunately there aren’t many Performante in capable hands since the car is banned from most tracks and doesn‘t have proper “support” for track accessories, something Lamborghini has corrected with the upcoming STS. Hint: This car will very likely set a new Nordschleife record (which of course many Porsche fans will doubt again 😜).
