Lamborghini virtually launches Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive Spyder in augmented reality, unprecedented for an unveiling in the automotive world.
Feel the 610 CV of the aspirated V10 engine while accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds and reaching a top speed of 324 km/h: an open-air celebration of lightweight engineering, with rear-wheel drive and a specially tuned Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS).
Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, commented: “The Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive Spyder doubles the driving fun, delivering raw driving pleasure with the opportunity to celebrate life outside. The driver is perfectly in touch with Lamborghini’s engineering heritage, experiencing the feedback and engagement from the set-up of a rear-wheel drive car where electronic intrusion is minimized, while enjoying the sense of freedom and spirit of life that only open-top driving provides.”
Sheer open-air driving fun
Engineered as an instinctive driver’s car, the Huracán EVO RWD Spyder ensures top performance focused on the pilot’s 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-boosting 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 aspirated V10 engine responding to the throttle during maneuvers, whether STRADA, SPORT or CORSA is selected from the ANIMA button on the steering wheel.
Optimized driver feedback
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. It has a front/rear weight distribution of 40/60, with double wishbone suspension with overlapped quadrilaterals and passive shock absorbers, providing optimized driver feedback. Ventilated and cross-drilled steel brakes are fitted to 19” Kari rims with specially developed Pirelli P Zero tires, with optional 20” rims and carbon ceramic brakes.
Design: a lifestyle choice
Characterized by a new front splitter and vertical fins within the larger, framed front air intakes, 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 within 17 seconds under the rear hood, even while driving up to a speed of 50 km/h (31 mph). In a range of color options, the soft-top perfectly complements the rear-wheel drive car’s body lines and color options, while ensuring a quiet cockpit for easy conversation and entertainment with the roof up or down. With soft-top either up or down the driver can also electronically open the rear window, which functions as a windshield when up and highlights the V10 engine’s unique sound when down. Two removable lateral wind shields dampen lateral aerodynamic noise in the cabin, permitting conversation even at high speeds.
An HMI 8.4” 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 Huracán EVO RWD Spyder is a driver’s car and a lifestyle choice, complemented by virtually limitless color and trim options through Lamborghini Ad Personam, allowing owners to personalize their car to their exacting tastes.
