Lamborghini recently announced the release of a new rear-wheel-drive version of the Huracan EVO supercar. The new car goes back to the roots of Lamborghini’s engineering. It places the driver at the center of the driving experience, providing drivers with unprecedented feedback proportionate to their foot power. The Huracan EVO RWD is an enhancement of the V10 Huracan line-up that will appeal to newcomers as well as current fans.

Powertrain Performance

The Huracan Evo RWD is equipped with a powerful V10 engine that delivers 610hp at 8000 rpm and 560Nm of torque at 6500 rpm. It is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, which is fitted with launch control to allow for maximum acceleration from a stationary position. The car can accelerate from 0 to 100 KM/H in 3.3 seconds and has a top speed of 325 km/h. Lamborghini insists that the focus of the engineering team is not on lap records or speed. Rather, the focus is on maximizing the driving experience by creating “an instinctive” car.

Driving Performance

The naturally aspirated V10 engine delivers more than horsepower to the rear axle; the sound profile of the car combined with the unique drive control system ensures a fun driving experience in all weather conditions. Its unique Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS) can deliver torque even when the car is realigning out of sideslip or drift. In contrast, normal traction control systems will decouple from the vehicle until it has completely stabilized.

The traction control system comes with different modes that can be selected using the ANIMA button located on the steering wheel. These modes are STRADA, SPORT, and CORSA. IN STRADA, the P-TCS intelligently manages torque delivery to avoid slippage on low-traction surfaces. When the SPORT mode is activated, it maximizes the driving experience allowing the rear wheels to slide and skate for drivers wishing to drift without compromising their safety. In CORSA, the traction control system optimizes the vehicle’s traction agility when exiting corners, allowing for optimal performance. To ensure maximum feedback, the engineering team has fine-tuned the electro-mechanical, servo-assisted Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) for the Huracan EVO RWD.

Chassis and Suspension

The Huracan EVO RWD features a lightweight aluminum and carbon chassis. Its body is made of aluminum and thermoplastic resin to give it a total weight of 1389kg. The result is a weight to power ration of 2.28 kg/hp. It has a front/rear weight distribution is 40/60, and it is fitted with a double-wishbone suspension that features passive shock absorber and overlapped quadrilaterals. For the tires, Lamborghini has utilized specially designed Pirelli P Zero tires mounted on 19” Kari rims. It comes with cross-drilled steel brakes, but there is an option for 20” rims and carbon-ceramic brakes.

Exterior Design

The car has new front and rear features that distinguish it from the Huracan EVO 4WD. It features a new front splitter and vertical fins inside the larger, framed front air intakes. Its rear bumper has been redesigned as well, and it features a new look diffuser.

Interior Design

Inside the cockpit, the supercar features an HMI 8.4” touchscreen embedded in the center console. This screen controls all functions as well as managing connectivity such as internet access, phone calls, and Apple CarPlay.

The Huracan EVO RWD will be delivered to its customers starting in spring 2020. It will be offered to customers in Europe, the UK, the United States, China, and Japan.
