As summer arrives in Asia, you might be tempted to drop the top and flaunt what your mother gave you, and the new Lamborghini Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive Spyder is the perfect excuse.
Let’s face it, if you’re driving a Lamborghini you’re going to catch the eye of more than your fair share of pedestrians and other drivers, and we’re pretty sure you’ll be fine with that. But if you really want to stand out from the pack, you might want to look at the new rear-wheel version of the Lamborghini Huracán EVO Spyder, which comes with the power and control of rear-wheel drive, enhanced design lines, and a lightweight soft-top that’s just begging to be dropped.
The Huracán EVO RWD Spyder continues the V10 Lamborghini’s powerful design with new front and rear features, clearly differentiating it from its Huracán EVO 4WD Spyder stablemate. Characterized by a new front splitter and vertical fins within the larger, framed front air intakes characterize, the rear bumper in high gloss black incorporates a new diffuser unique to the Huracán EVO RWD Spyder.
The Spyder’s soft-top roof stows under the rear hood within 17 seconds, even while driving up to a speed of 50 km/h, just in case you’re planning a quick getaway. Offered in a range of color options, the soft-top ensures a quiet cockpit for easy conversation and entertainment with the roof up or down, thanks to an electronically opened rear window, and two removable lateral wind shields, which dampen lateral aerodynamic noise in the cabin, permitting conversations even at high speeds.
Within, an HMI 8.4-inch touchscreen in the Spyder’s center console controls the car’s functions as well as providing comprehensive connectivity for telephone calls, internet access and Apple CarPlay.
The new V10 model provides drivers with an open-air celebration of lightweight engineering, with rear-wheel drive and a specially tuned Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS). Roof up or down, daily driving and high-performance fun are accompanied by the inimitable sound of the V10 aspirated power plant, delivering the same 610 hp (449 kW) and 560 Nm of torque as the coupé version.
With a 0-100 km/h acceleration of just 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 324 km/h, like its coupé stablemate the Spyder is an instinctive driver’s car, delivering a fun-to-drive experience via hardware rather than software.
The Huracán EVO RWD Spyder’s design optimizes the integration and function of an extremely lightweight soft top. The Spyder’s exterior lines ensure drag reduction and downforce match that of the coupé without requiring additional aerodynamic appendages while enhancing the rear-wheel-drive car’s balance and dynamism with roof both up and down.
The Huracán EVO RWD Spyder is specially engineered as an instinctive driver’s car, still producing top performance figures but focused on the pilot’s (that could be you tiger) skills and the set-up of the rear-wheel drive powertrain, providing unfiltered physical feedback and maximum engagement. The specially tuned P-TCS traction control system is designed for adrenalin-producing performance in all conditions, consistently delivering torque and assuring traction even as the Spyder is realigning after sharp cornering or drifting. Especially with the roof down, the driver’s senses are further aroused by the sound of the V10 aspirated engine responding to the throttle during maneuvers.
The Huracán EVO Spyder’s 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, 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. CORSA mode optimizes the car’s traction and agility when exiting a corner in high-performance conditions, maximizing dynamics and speed.
The Huracán EVO RWD Spyder’s aluminum and thermoplastic resin body sits on a lightweight hybrid chassis in aluminum and carbon fiber, with a dry weight of 1,509 kg and a weight-to-power ratio of 2.47 kg/hp. Ventilated and cross-drilled steel brakes are fitted to 19-inch Kari rims with specially-developed Pirelli P Zero tires, with optional 20-inch rims and carbon ceramic brakes.
