The Huracan Performante set a new standard for . Its performance matches its exterior design; it's quick, and it has the stability to handle its power. Motor Trend liked it so much they named it their . Now we're curious to see how Lamborghini has taken these cues and applied them to the new Huracan Evo, a refreshed and updated version of the Huracan LP 580.

The new "base" Huracan's 5.2-liter V-10 engine now makes 630 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque, just like the Performante.
