Comments Off on Lamborghini Huracán Evo Spyder Is Robb Report’s Car of the Year 2020
We are very proud to share the news that Lamborghini has once again been named Robb Report’s Car of the Year. This year, our 2020 Lamborghini Huracán Evo Spyder takes the #1 honor.
We waved the checkered ﬂag this year for a convertible at the crossroads of automotive innovation and artiﬁcial intelligence: Lamborghini’s game-changing Huracán Evo Spyder. A raging bull with a true brain, the 631 hp Evo debuts the Italian marque’s Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI), a super-processor that anticipates driver inputs and correspondingly adjusts the torque vectoring, all-wheel steering, advanced traction control, and related systems every 20 milliseconds, give or take. Basically, the car predicts your next move and sets you up for success, often despite yourself. And it’s all complemented by 10 cylinders of naturally aspirated fury. “The sound of that V-10 can cure depression,” said Jerónimo Guzman. “I’m recording the engine noise for my phone’s ringtone.” Nathan Tan concurred: “Every downshift, [...]
