Lambo reveals RWD Huracan Evo 06 | 01 | 2020

    LAMBORGHINI HAS LIFTED the wraps from its new rear-wheel-drive version of the Huracán Evo supercar. Prices start from £137,000 (excluding taxes) for the new version of the V10 supercar, with first deliveries scheduled for Spring. (Related: Scot Sandy Mitchell Lambo World Vice Champion)

    Powered by the same naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10 engine as the four-wheel-drive variant, tuned to produce 602bhp at 8000rpm, the output is the same as the ‘standard’ all-wheel-drive Huracán; it is though 29bhp down on the Evo.

    Using a specially tuned version of Lamborghini’s Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS), all 413lb/ft of torque at 6500rpm in the new model is delivered directly to the rear-wheels. Lamborghini claims 0-62mph sprint in 3.3secs, with a top speed of 202mph. (Related: Lamborghini reveals Huracan Evo)


    “This car reminds the driver of Lamborghini’s pure engineering origins,” Stefano Domenicali, chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, said. “The driver is at the centre of the Huracán Evo RWD’s performance, with unfiltered feedback and an emotive and more engaging driving experience controlled by the pilot.


    “The Huracán Evo rear-wheel drive puts the car in the driver’s hands: the driving experience is delivered by the hardware. The performance relies on the harmony between man and machine: driving skills and the Huracán Evo’s RWD mechanics deliver perfectly balanced dynamics, physical feedback and a pure performance.” (Related: New 2018 Lamborghini Urus)


    Maintaining the same Strada, Sport and Corsa drive modes as the all-wheel-drive Huracán, in the rear-wheel drive version the P-TSC system is tuned to continue delivering torque when the car is realigning itself after drifting. It is also programmed to deliver torque in advance to ensure better traction when exiting a corner.


    There are subtle styling tweaks externally to differentiate the RWD version from its AWD sibling. The newcomer gets a new front splitter and front air intake. There’s also a new new diffuser design integrated into the rear bumper. And while 20in Pirelli P Zero tyres are optional, the standard fit is 19in.


    Inside, the cockpit features a HMI 8.4in touchscreen in the centre console of the car, controlling all aspects of the car’s functions as well as managing full connectivity such as telephone calls, internet access, and including Apple CarPlay.


    Lamborghini has also developed a new colour, Giallo Belenus (yellow), which it says helps emphasise the shape of the car. There’s also a dedicated leather and Alcantara colour for the interior trim, which matches the new exterior paint.
