Lamborghini Huracan Evo 2019 UK review – Autocar

Elsewhere, the Huracán gains rear-wheel steering and torque vectoring, and its magnetic dampers, dynamic steering rack and traction control systems have all been extensively updated. Tweaks have also been made to its exterior, so that it not only looks more aggressive but is more aerodynamically efficient, too.

Of all these modifications, though, it’s the introduction of what is effectively a new central brain that stands out as the most significant. It’s called the Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI), and its job is to process the vast amounts of information relayed to it from all of these systems and coordinate their combined, immediate response. The theory is that this should make the Huracán Evo not only far better at reacting to changes to its immediate environment but also capable of predicting what might be coming next – from both the driver and the topography under wheel.

It all kind of puts us in mind of the Matrix, specifically the part where Neo plugs himself into a computer so that a range of different martial arts can be uploaded directly to his brain. As that ‘training’ programme did for Neo, LDVI sets out to rewire the Huracán, making it harder, better, faster and stronger. It’s tempting to say that it now knows kung fu, but we won’t.

Anyway, when we drove the Huracán Evo on track in Bahrain[1] earlier this year, we found these changes came as a revelation. This was a car far sharper, far more agile and far more rewarding than its predecessor ever was. Now, though, it’s time to see how the Huracán Evo copes with the task of dealing with Britain’s less-than-stellar road network.
