Lamborghini launches rear axle-driven Huracan Evo RWD
EVO RWD will replace the four-year-old LP580-2 in the Huracan fleet ...
Lamborghini begins this year with the launch of the brand new Huracan variant. The famed brand has announced that it will create a version of its entry-level rear-wheel-drive supercar that will offer better steering and more power than ever before.
Engineered for "driving fun," as the Italians describe it, this model is the only super-car with 10 cylinders and rear-wheel drive currently available on the market. And while a little less powerful than the standard Evo all-wheel drive introduced last January, the RWD features a 5.2-liter V10 internal combustion engine that can still knock out an impressive 610 horses, up thirty more from the LP580 -2. EVO RWD may be a little slower than the standard version, accelerating from zero to one hundred kilometers per hour in 3.3 seconds, but both models can develop a top speed of 325 kilometers per hour, according to the brand.
Of course, the main difference between the latest Huracan and the standard Evo model is its fluid handling. The supercar is equipped with a recalibrated Lamborghini Performance Traction Control system, which gives it the ability to glide during acceleration.
In "Strada" driver mode, the system minimizes slippage, in "Sport" it opens sliding angles and drift potential, while "Corsa" variant improves output traction. Overall, according to the Lamborghioni brand, the Evo RWD is 30% more manageable than the LP580-2.
“The Huracan EVO is a rear-wheel drive car placed in the hands of the driver. Driving experience comes from hardware. This car will remind drivers of pure Lamborghini engineering and its origins. The driver is at the center of the performance, with a more engaged and emotional driving experience”explains Stefano Domenicali, CEO of the Lamborghini brand.
EVO RWD got a few new aesthetic details too. In the front, it got a new sleek split splitter that connects the nose of the car to other air intakes on the outside. Combined with a revised diffuser at the back, the new details generate more powerful airflow under the vehicle and increase thrust.
Lastly, Lamborghini brand also reduced the price of the Evo RWD, starting at $ 214,366, down $ 52,000 from the standard range.
