Lorenzo Insigne's Lamborghini is a Huracan Evo. The striker of Napoli and of the national team, with whom he has just won the European Championship, received it as a gift just over a year ago, on the occasion of his birthday.

On 4 June 2020, the Neapolitan striker found the Sant'Agata Bolognese supercar parked under his house with a nice red bow. To give it to him, organizing the surprise, was his wife Jenny. The two have been married since 2012 and have two children. Who knows next year, for the first ten years of marriage, Insigne cannot receive another special car as a gift. It wouldn't be a bad idea, given that the scorer of the fantastic goal against Belgium is a fan of extreme cars, as evidenced by the presence in his garage of a 639 hp Mercedes GT 63S and a 570 hp Ferrari 458 Italia. 

Insigne's Lamborghini, on the other hand, has 640 horsepower. As for the price, it takes no less than 200,000 euros to take it home, net of customizations and accessories. Behind the driver's back roars the 5.2-liter V10 engine, the last naturally aspirated left in a niche where the competitors are all turbos. Its maximum power reaches 8,000 rpm and 600 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm, thanks also to features such as the titanium intake valves and the lightweight exhaust system.

An engine, therefore, with a dry weight of 1,422 kg, the Huracán Evo has a weight / power ratio of 2.22 kg / hp for a 0-100 km / h in 2.9 seconds and a 0-200 km / h in 9 seconds. The braking distance from 100 km / h to total stop is only 31.9 m, while the maximum speed is over 325 km / h. Absolute level performance that is easy to manage thanks to the rear-wheel steering and torque distribution via Torque Vectoring on the four-wheel drive. Two components connected to a sophisticated central processing unit that controls every aspect of the car's behavior to anticipate the driver's actions and needs. Finally, the electronically controlled magnetorheological suspensions instantly adapt the damping according to the inputs received.


The front bumper gives the front a lower appearance and guarantees aerodynamic efficiency thanks to the front splitter with integrated flap. In the rear profile, on the other hand, the double tailpipes of the exhaust system and the spoiler for managing the air flow stand out. In the cockpit there is an unprecedented man-machine interface with 8.4 ” capacitive touchscreen that can also be operated by gesture or voice commands with Siri or Alexa Assistant.
