Lamborghini has revealed the new Huracan EVO RWD Spyder.
The new V10 model provides drivers with lightweight engineering, rear-wheel-drive agility and a specially tuned Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS).
Roof up or down, daily driving and high-performance in the Lamborghini Huracan EVO RWD Spyder are accompanied by the sound of the naturally aspirated V10, which delivers 602bhp and 560Nm, just like the coupe version.
With a zero to 100km/h time of just 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 324km/h, Lamborghini describes the Huracan EVO Spyder as an instinctive driver’s car delivering a fun-to-drive experience via hardware rather than software.
The Lamborghini Huracan EVO RWD Spyder is a true Lamborghini with roof open and closed, sporting inimitable lines from every profile that confirm it is as dynamic in both looks and performance whether the roof is on or off.
The Spyder’s exterior lines also ensure that drag reduction and downforce match that of the coupe without requiring additional aerodynamic appendages, while enhancing the rear-wheel-drive car’s balance and dynamism.
A PURE DRIVING EXPERIENCE
The Huracan EVO RWD Spyder produces top performance figures, but focuses on the pilot’s skills and the set-up of the rear-wheel-drive powertrain. Lamborghini says the roadster provides “unfiltered physical feedback and maximum engagement.”
The specially tuned P-TCS traction control system is designed for adrenaline-pumping performance in all conditions.
It can consistently deliver torque and traction, even as the Spyder is realigning after sharp cornering or drifting. And once the roof is opened, the driver’s senses become further aroused by the sound of the V10 responding to the driver’s throttle inputs.
HANDLING TO MATCH
The Lamborghini Huracan EVO RWD Spyder utilises an aluminium and thermoplastic resin body which sits on a lightweight hybrid chassis of aluminium and carbon fibre. This contributes to a low a dry weight of 1509kg, and a front/rear weight distribution of 40/60.
The car’s aluminium double wishbone suspension sports overlapped quadrilaterals and passive shock absorbers to optimise driver feedback. Ventilated and cross-drilled steel brakes are fitted to 19-inch Kari wheels shod with specially-developed Pirelli P Zero tyres.
Optional 20-inch wheels and carbon ceramic brakes are also available.
The Lamborghini Huracan EVO RWD Spyder differentiates itself from its coupe stablemate with a new front splitter and vertical fins within the larger, framed front air intakes.
A rear bumper in high gloss black that incorporates a new diffuser is also unique to the Huracan EVO RWD Spyder.
The Spyder’s soft-top roof stows within 17 seconds under the rear hood, even while the car is being driven up to a speed of 50km/h. Available in a range of colour options, the soft-top complements the roadster’s body lines, while ensuring a quiet cockpit for easy conversation and entertainment.
The driver can also electronically open the rear window, allowing it to be used as an additional windshield when up and highlighting the V10’s sound when down.
Two removable lateral wind shields dampen lateral aerodynamic noise in the cabin, permitting conversations even at high speeds.
THE INSIDE STORY
An 8.4-inch touchscreen in the Spyder’s centre console allows for easy access to the car’s functions while providing comprehensive connectivity for telephone calls, internet access and Apple CarPlay.
Owners will also be able to personalise their car to their exacting tastes, with virtually limitless colour and trim options through the Lamborghini Ad Personam programme.
