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.
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.
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.
