Lamborghini’s new 449kW Huracán EVO is rear-wheel-drive goodness

Lamborghini has revealed the new Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive Spyder virtually, using Augmented Reality (AR) on its official website.

The new V10 model delivers the same 449kW and 560Nm as the coupé version. It accelerates from 0-100 km/h in just 3.5-seconds and a top speed of 324km/h.

Nothing like open air

The specially tuned P-TCS traction control system is designed for producing performance in all conditions, consistently delivering torque and assuring traction even as the car is realigning after sharp cornering or drifting.

The ANIMA button on the steering wheel puts the pilot in control of driving modes, with the P-TCS calibrated to suit. STRADA provides stability and safety in all conditions by minimizing rear-wheel slippage, and more proactively managing torque delivery on low-adhesion surfaces.

In Sport mode, the driver enjoys drifting fun, while Corse mode optimizes the car’s traction and agility when exiting a corner in high-performance conditions.

The aluminum and thermoplastic resin body sits on a lightweight hybrid chassis in aluminum and carbon fibre, with a dry weight of 1 509kg.

Stopping power is done via ventilated and cross-drilled steel brakes and covered by 19-inch Kari alloy wheels with specially-developed Pirelli P Zero tyres, with a 20-inch wheel available as an optional extra rims and carbon ceramic brakes.

Designed for life

The exterior features are characterized by a new front splitter and vertical fins within the larger, framed front air intakes. The rear bumper is coated in high gloss black while also incorporating a new diffuser unique to the supercar.

It’s soft-top roof stows within 17-seconds even while driving up to a speed of 50km/h. With soft top both up and down the driver can also electronically open the rear window, which functions as a windshield when up and highlights the engine’s unique sound when down.

An HMI 8.4-inch touchscreen in the find itself in the centre console, controlling the car’s functions as well as providing comprehensive connectivity for telephone calls, internet access and Apple CarPlay.

The Huracán is a driver’s car and a lifestyle choice, complemented by virtually limitless colour and trim options through Lamborghini Ad Personam, allowing owners to personalize their car to their exacting tastes.
