Noble lineage

In many ways, the Huracán Evo RWD can be considered the offspring of the LP 580-2 and Performante, taking the former’s rear-drive approach to performance and blending it with a number of the upgrades that were introduced in the latter. Output is up to 610hp (455kW) thanks to a Performante-derived iteration of the naturally aspirated, 5.2-liter V10 and its raucous center-mounted exhaust system. Meanwhile, removing the front differential hardware takes roughly 75lbs (34kg) off of the front end of the car versus a standard Huracán Evo.

There’s also 73-percent more downforce on tap here versus an LP

Samsung Electronics has announced the death of its chairman, Lee Kun-hee. The company says he died on October 25th with family including his son, vice-chairman Lee Jae-yong, at his side. He was 78.

A cause of death was not given, but Lee had been incapacitated for many years after suffering a heart attack in 2014, causing him to withdraw from public life. Lee Jae-yong, also known as Jay Y. Lee, had been widely assumed to take over upon his father’s passing and has been viewed as the de facto leader in recent years.
