Lamborghini Huracan Evo received a carbon fiber bodyApril 4, 2020
After visiting the tuning studio 1016 Industries, the sports car also added to the power.
We have heard about a number of companies struggling with the current coronavirus pandemic in a variety of ways: from cash donations to changing production facilities for respirators, and in the case of Lamborghini, face masks. But the last company to join the effort is a customization firm that has done something unusual.
1016 Industries is a Miami, Florida company specializing in the manufacture of carbon fiber forged materials. The tuner has just announced that his latest creation will benefit the efforts of the World Health Organization and introduced the world’s first Lamborghini Huracan Evo with a body consisting entirely of forged carbon fiber.
Wrought carbon fiber is not an alien concept for Huracan because Huracan Performante uses all of this for its smart aerodynamic systems. But 1016 Industries went even further by adding a series of forged carbon parts to enhance the already impressive Huracan Evo.
Among the changes are a carbon rear wing that improves stability at high speeds, a central stainless steel outlet, a forged carbon fiber hood that reduces weight by 4 kg, a carbon roof and fenders developed by 1016 Industries, which are 5 kg lighter than standard model. A new front lip and a new rear diffuser appeared, available in forged or twill carbon fiber. In addition, customers can choose the Huracan Evo in a narrow or wide enclosure.
Upgrading the exhaust and other settings increase power by 20 hp. and torque of 25 Nm, bringing the total power to 650 hp and 625 Nm from the 5.2-liter V10 naturally aspirated engine.
But how does all this relate to the fight against Covid-19? 1016 Industries took this opportunity to announce that 10% of the company’s sales from that moment until the end of April will be transferred to WHO to help combat the pandemic. The company claims that the Evo carbon fiber is something that “exotic car collectors will love”, which gives the rich the opportunity to purchase something that can contribute to development.
