Cars with apps are nothing but distraction to drivers. Obviously, that’s not a good thing, even more so if you are driving a powerful and fast car like, say, a Lamborghini Huracán EVO. Thankfully, in-car apps distraction won’t be a thing in 2020 for Lamborghini Huracán EVO range because, Amazon Alexa.
That’s right. Amazon Alexa has arrived to cars and Automobili Lamborghini is the first automaker to incorporate full in-car control offered by Amazon’s voice assistant. When in the car, you will be able to adjust functions like climate, interior lighting and seat heating using simple voice command.
You can also ask Alexa to do the usual, you know, like placing calls, get directions, play music and audio books, check news and weather, and whatnot. Now, that’s progression. Not gestures or tapping on the screen.
Amazon Alexa’s functionality will be kept up-to-date within the Lamborghini models, so there’s no worry that it will go out-of-date or anything like that.
The Alexa option will be available during the course of 2020 across the entire range of Huracán EVO family, including the new RWD model. Speaking of the Huracán EVO RWD model, it was announced a few days ahead of this Alexa integration announcement (January 7) on January 4, 2020.
This latest member of the Huracán EVO family’s V10 unit delivers 610 horses and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque in a lightweight (1,389 kg or 3,062 lbs) rear-wheel drive package. All told, the RWD is capable rocketing to 100 km/h (62 mph) from standstill in 3.3 seconds, sending it on its way to a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).
Lamborghini Huracán EVO RWD can be ordered now for $208,571, or £137,000 and €159,443 in the U.K. and Europe, respectively.
