Lamborghini Huracán EVO RWD Spyder for open-air driving fun and freedom

Automobili Lamborghini reveals the new Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive Spyder, using for the first time Augmented Reality (AR) on its official website. New Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD) is a true Lamborghini, both with the roof on and without it, offering great dynamism and outstanding performance.

Technically, the Huracan Evo always teams up with an atmospheric 5.2L V10. Unlike the 4-wheel drive version, where it develops 640 hp on the RWD versions, its power has been deflated to 610 hp. The torque of 560 Nm is always obtained at the stratospheric speed of 6,500 rpm.

The loss of the rigid roof, replaced by a soft top, has a direct consequence on the weight of the model. The Huracan Evo RWD Spyder weighs 120 kg more on the scale (1509 kg dry) than the coupe. It takes 3.5 seconds to accelerate from standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) and has a top speed of 324 km/h (201 mph).

To save your brushing from squalls at such a speed, the hood is essential. The Spyder’s soft-top roof stows within 17 seconds under the rear hood, even while driving up to a speed of 50 km/h (31 mph).

Aesthetically the Hurricane Evo RWD Spyder stands out for its new front splitter, larger vertical fins that are framed inside the front air intakes, and the high-gloss black rear bumper with a new exclusive diffuser. It mounts 19” Kari rims with specially-developed Pirelli P Zero tires, with optional 20” rims and carbon-ceramic brakes. In the passenger compartment, an 8.4-inch HMI touchscreen located in the center console is responsible for controlling car functions and providing extensive connectivity, internet access, and Apple CarPlay.

On the other hand, the ANIMA button located on the steering wheel allows to control the different driving modes of the vehicle: the STRADA mode provides stability and safety in all conditions, minimizing slippage of the rear wheels and managing torque delivery on surfaces of low adherence; The SPORT mode makes the driver enjoy drifting fun, allowing the rear wheels to slide and skate during acceleration, with torque limited when oversteer angles increase rapidly so the driver can stabilize and control the car. And lastly, CORSA mode optimizes traction and agility when exiting a curve in extremely sporty conditions, maximizing dynamics and speed.

The first customers will take delivery of the new Lamborghini Huracán EVO RWD Spyder in summer 2020 at US$229,428.
