Subject 2023 Lamborghini Huracan EVO
The Lamborghini Huracan Evo. As a "replacement" of the Performante, it is an evolution of the already fantastic Huracan that was first introduced in 2014 to replace the Gallardo money-maker, the Huracan Evo is Lamborghini's "most affordable" and daily drivable supercar. Starting with a price tag north of $200,000, Sant'Agata Bolognese's mid-engined exotic is fitted with a 5.2-liter V10 producing 630 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque. Sending power to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, the Huracan Evo can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds (3.3 for the RWD), topping out at over 200 mph.
Our client loved the overall look and feel of this already outstanding example of a Huracan, but felt it was missing some finer details and elements that Lamborghini omitted. We couldn't have agreed more so we addressed the process in a multitude of stages.
Firstly, we of course needed to adjust the "on road" presence of the car, a recurring theme here at Label, installing the complete Novitec lowering spring package adapting the factory magnetic ride dampers to an adjustable coilover configuration courtesy of Novitec, and still retaining use of the factory front noselift. Obviously after lowering, the factory wheel and tire fitment immediately is rendered useless as they are built with considerably less offset than what could be used to fill the gap in the wheel well and widen the track width accordingly. So we opted to go with a Novitec X Vossen true forged monoblock wheel that is built specifically for this Lamborghini, and absolutely maximizes the available real estate within the wheel well, while adding a matte silver contrast centerlock look to the wheel, really completing the look we were seeking.
We then wanted to add some subtle carbon elements, and eliminated a lot of the factory Lamborghini "dull plastic" components. Using Novitec again, we applied the front spoiler extension, front vent extensions, side vent engine inlets, rear bonnet engine vents, rear view mirror housings, rear bonnet trim, Novitec V10 badging, and topping it all off the restyled all carbon fiber rear diffuser. Justin then applied a custom fit STEK PPF package to all of the added carbon, while we also added a scrape guard on the underside to eliminate rubbing or damage after lowering the car. Additional to those, we added the set of custom euro clear side markers, which are modified to fit all of the US spec LED lights and fully operational, and also removed the factory chrome badge and replaced it with a hand brushed version to tie into the satin theme of the build.
From there, we reached out to RYFT and secured a complete exhaust package that not only unleashed the tone of this amazing V10, but adds to the aesthetic package with 5" replacement titanium tips, and the glimpse of the full titanium exhaust through the rear grille letting you know this is not your normal Huracan.
This Huracan EVO now stands on its own, in a subtle, dominating appearance that exemplifies personification in the most tasteful, and OE appearing form!
