Facelifted model features the uprated V10 engine from the Performante.

The Lamborghini Huracan Evo was revealed overnight with styling changes, equipment upgrades and a more powerful drivetrain.

UPDATE, 23/01/2019: Lamborghini has revealed pricing for the car will start at $459,441 before on-roads. The story has been updated with those details.

Externally the Huracan Evo is differentiated from its forebears by new front bumpers, which feature less black space than before, revised side air intakes, and new alloy wheel designs.

If these changes are a bit hard to pick out, the revisions to the rear should be a little more obvious. The licence plate and exhaust tips have been moved to a much higher position, the lip spoiler has been raised, and the diffuser stands out even more due to its body colour finish.

Behind the passenger compartment is the same naturally-aspirated 5.2-litre V10 as used in the pre-facelift Performante model.

Thanks to its titanium intake values, lighter exhaust system and other changes, the Evo's engine develops 470kW at 8000rpm, and 600Nm of torque at 6500rpm.

The new Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata or integrated vehicle dynamics processor controls the Evo's all-wheel drive, seven-spped dual-clutch transmission, rear-wheel steering, four-wheel torque vectoring, magneto rheological suspension, and dynamic steering systems.

Said to have a dry weight of 1422kg, the Huracan Evo can complete the 0-100km/h dash in 2.9 seconds and hit 200km/h in 9.0 seconds, while top speed is said to be 325km/h.

The Evo rides on standard 20-inch wheels with Pirelli P Zero 245/30 tyres at the front, and 305/30 rubber at the rear. Carbon-ceramic brakes are able to bring the Evo to a stop from 100km/h in 31.9 metres.

Inside the cabin there's a new 8.4-inch capacitive touchscreen controlling the infotainment system and most in-car functions. Apple CarPlay compatibility is available, as is a dual-camera telemetry system.
