Lamborghini pulled the covers off a new model today as it presents the Huracan Evo RWD Spyder to the world. It is based on the Huracan Evo RWD (which you can read about here) but as you may have guessed, it has the option of going topless.
The Huracan Evo RWD Spyder is the latest to join the portfolio of Lamborghini’s entry-level sportscar line-up. Buyers can choose between all- and rear-wheel-drive, coupe or soft-top variants to suit all tastes and personalities. Unique design elements on this car include a new front splitter and vertical fins within the larger, framed front air intakes and a rear bumper in high gloss black which incorporates a new diffuser.
The Spyder’s soft-top roof stows within 17 seconds even while driving up to a speed of 50 km/h. With soft top up or down the driver can electronically open or close the rear window, which functions as a windshield when up. With the roof in place and the rear window down occupants can enjoy the engine’s unique sound in the cabin.
As with all other siblings the newest Huracan is powered by the firm’s naturally aspirated V10 engine. The soft-top RWD version dishes up 449 kW of power and 560 N.m of torque, similar outputs to the RWD coupe. The open-top variant has a 0-100 km/h acceleration time of just 3,5 seconds and a top speed of 324 km/h. Lamborghini says that the Huracan Evo RWD Spyder has a specially tuned Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS). The press blurb says P-TCS consistently delivers torque and assuring traction even as the Spyder is realigning after sharp cornering or drifting.
In his own words
Stefano Domenicali, chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, comments: “The Huracan 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 minimised while enjoying the sense of freedom and spirit of life that only open-top driving provides.”
