Lamborghini reveals RWD version of Huracan EVO

Italian luxury sports car manufacturer, Lamborghini has finally introduced a rear-wheel-drive (RWD) version of the Huracan Evo. The RWD was absent when the company replaced the original Huracan with the EVO for its 2020 product line.

The Huracan EVO RWD is hauled by the same naturally aspirated, 5.3-litre V10 motor which produces more than 600 PS maximum power and 550 Nm peak torque. The engine is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission system. It makes the EVO RWD the most powerful car in the Huracan two-wheel-drive (2WD) series. That aside, at less than 1,400 kg, the EVO RWD is among the most aero-dynamic and lightest Huracan on the street. Lamborghini claims that the car can reach 0-62 mph in 3.3 seconds.

The Huracan EVO RWD gets a Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS) which allows more torque to be dispatched to the rear wheels. It lends a more fun driving experience and improved traction when negotiating a corner at a high speed. The car is also capable of more power slides since the torque is not sent to the front wheels. The company claims that in the Corsa driving mode, the EVO RWD’s intervention smoothness improves by 30 percent compared to the car’s previous version.

Automobili Lamborghini chairman and chief executive officer Stefano Domenicali, said at the launch that the Huracan EVO RWD puts the vehicle in the driver’s hands. The car, he said, is an example of Lamborghini’s pure engineering roots.

Besides the more powerful motor and the new traction control, Lamborghini has also lent a number of added features to the Huracan EVO RWD. The car gets a new front splitter and fins, along with a diffuser at the back. These help in improving the vehicle’s aerodynamics. The Sant’Agata Bolognese-headquartered company has extensively used lightweight carbon fiber and aluminum throughout the car’s chassis that has led to reduced curb weight. Lamborghini, however, seems to have left out the rear-wheel steering from the new version.

The Huracan Evo RWD is expected to have an entry-level price of $208,571 in the US. It will come at a $52,000 discount compared to its four-wheel-drive version. Deliveries are likely to begin around spring this year.
