The Lamborghini Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive Spyder: Celebrating life in the open air

  • Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD) for open air driving fun and freedom
  • 610 hp (449 kW) and 560 Nm of torque, accelerating from 0-100 km/h in 3.5 s with a top speed of 324 km/h
  • Spyder design enhancements optimizes drag reduction and downforce
  • Lightweight soft-top in true Spyder form delivers pure lines and aerodynamic efficiency with roof both open and closed
  • Roof operable up to 50 km/h: open-air driving enhanced by sound of naturally aspirated V10 Lamborghini engine

Automobili Lamborghini reveals the new Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive Spyder virtually, using for the first time Augmented Reality (AR) on its official website lamborghini.com. The new V10 model provides drivers with an open-air celebration of lightweight engineering, with rear-wheel drive and a specially tuned Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS). Roof up or down, daily driving and high-performance fun are accompanied by the inimitable sound of the V10 aspirated power plant, delivering the same 610 hp (449 kW) and 560 Nm of torque as the coupé version. With a 0-100 km/h acceleration of just 3,5 seconds and a top speed of 324 km/h, like its coupé stablemate the Spyder is an instinctive driver’s car, delivering a fun-to-drive experience via hardware rather than software.

The Huracán EVO RWD Spyder’s design optimizes the integration and function of the extremely lightweight soft  top.  The  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 roof on or off. The Spyder’s exterior lines ensure drag reduction and downforce matches that of the coupé without requiring additional aerodynamic appendages, while enhancing the rear-wheel drive car’s balance and dynamism with roof both up and down.

Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini, comments: “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.”

Driving fun in the open air

The Huracán EVO RWD Spyder is specially engineered as an instinctive driver’s car, still producing top  performance  figures  but  focused  on  the  pilot’s  skills  and  the  set-up  of  the  rear-wheel  drivepowertrain, providing unfiltered physical feedback and maximum engagement. The specially tuned P-TCS traction control system is designed for adrenalin-producing 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 V10 aspirated engine responding to the throttle during maneuvers.

The Huracán EVO Spyder’s ANIMA button on the steering wheel puts the pilot in control of driving modes, with the P-TCS calibrated to suit. STRADA provides stability and safety in all conditions by minimizing rear-wheel slippage, and more proactively managing torque delivery on low-adhesion surfaces. In SPORT mode, the driver enjoys drifting fun, allowing the rear wheels to slide and skate during acceleration, with torque limited when oversteer angles increase rapidly so the driver can stabilize and control the car. CORSA mode optimizes the car’s traction and agility when exiting a corner in high-performance conditions, maximizing dynamics and speed.

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. 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.

Designed for life

The Huracán EVO RWD Spyder continues the V10 Lamborghini’s powerful design with new front and rear features, clearly differentiating it from its Huracán EVO 4WD Spyder stablemate. Characterized by a new front splitter and vertical fins within the larger, framed front air intakes characterize,  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 roof up or down. With soft top both up and 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 conversations 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  colour  and  trim  options through Lamborghini  Ad  Personam,  allowing  owners  to  personalize their car to their exacting tastes.
