Before buying a pre-owned Huracan EVO for the future, consider its historic past

The Lamborghini Huracan, father of the dazzling Huracan EVO, has always been substantially ahead of its time. The first Lamborghini Huracan, named with the Spanish word for "hurricane," generated immediate excitement when it was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2014. Not long afterward, it was honored by Top Gear magazine as the Supercar of the Year for 2014. The Huracan was already off to its characteristically fast start.

The Huracan had quite a reputation to live up to even when it was initially designated by Lamborghini as the heir to the throne of its wildly successful predecessor, the Lamborghini Gallardo. The Huracan began its life with a head start on surpassing the Gallardo's legacy because the Huracan was built with more downforce and less drag. The first Huracan came with a beast of an engine, a 602-horsepower V10 with a zero-to-60 time of 2.8 seconds. 

Improvements on a world-beater

Some of the more appealing changes made in moving from the Gallardo to the Huracan were full LED lights and a massive 12.3 inch full-color instrument panel. Other upgrades included fine Nappa leather, Alcantara upholstery, a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and a carbon-ceramic braking system. One additional enhancement was a Lamborghini Dynamic variable steering system. 

Introduction of a convertible: The Huracan Spyder

In September of 2015, Lamborghini launched a sleek convertible variation of the Huracan called the Spyder that generated waves of enthusiasm at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It was engineered with the same naturally-aspirated V10 engine as the Huracan coupe, and it generated the same formidable 602-horsepower performance capability. Its zero-to-60 time was a scorching 3.4 seconds and its top speed was 201 mph. 

Rear-wheel-drive moves the Huracan farther ahead

In 2017, the Huracan began offering rear-wheel-drive, a performance boost that could be teamed up with the Lambo's convertible body style to create a much-talked-about personal super-sports car. Interior options for the 2014 model included a sophisticated multimedia tech interface. Other options included Bluetooth, a two-zone climate control system and a rear view camera. Also available in 2017: Parking sensors for both the front and back.

Racing to the top: The Performante

An even more auspicious event occurred at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show when Lamborghini launched a racetrack version of the Huracan that was dubbed the Performante. Carbon fiber became a key element in the bumpers as well as the side skirts. A carbon fiber rear wing helped increase downforce. The V10 engine was tuned to an even higher output of 631 horsepower.

The Performante development put the Huracan body through a weight loss program by building this super car's body with forged aluminum and forged carbon fiber. Active aerodynamics were engineered into the Performante to help maintain stability even at race track speeds. Its zero-to-62 mph time was an exhilarating 2.9 seconds and the top speed was an equally-exhilarating 200 mph.   

The latest chapter in the Huracan story: The Evo

The Huracan Evo was introduced in 2019 with many of the high-performance attributes of the Performante, including the same engine and much of the same technology. This most recent Huracan, available in a pre-owned form at Lamborghini Philadelphia, has dynamic aeroblades in the front bumper to help magnify the downforce. Its Performante-style engine produces that same massive 631 horsepower and presumably the same rush.
