As promised by the Italian supercar manufacturer, Automobili Lamborghini has just unveiled the new Huracan Evo RWD Spyder. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Lamborghini has chosen to unveil the fourth member of the Huracan family (not counting the limited-run Huracan Performante) using augmented reality (AR) tech at Lamborghini’s official website. With the new Huracan Evo RWD Spyder, Lamborghini promises pure, sonorous open-top driving pleasure in a rear-wheel-drive (RWD) configuration.
On the outside, the Huracan Evo RWD Spyder uses the same unique front and rear bumpers as the RWD Coupe variant to differentiate it from its standard AWD siblings. Other than that, this Huracan Evo RWD Spyder carries on with the rest of the body unchanged, at least in aesthetics. Meanwhile, the folding roof can be stowed electronically in as little as 17 seconds.
The interior is also largely unchanged as it still features a sporty design that’s highlighted by a pair of high-resolution screens. A large 8.4-inch portrait touch screen infotainment system resides in the middle, and it also features Apple CarPlay smartphone integration.
As expected in convertibles, the Huracan Evo RWD Spyder is heavier than the coupe–but not by a wide margin. Weighing in at 1,509 kg (dry weight), it is only 88 kg heavier than the coupe. This is thanks to the use of aluminum and carbon fiber in its construction.
Just like the hardtop Huracan Evo RWD, the open-top version’s 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V10 still produces 610 hp and 560 Nm of torque, sending power solely to the rear wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. With these power figures, the Huracan Evo RWD Spyder goes from zero to 100 kph in 3.5 seconds and all the way to a top speed of 324 kph. For perspective, the slightly lighter coupe is 0.1 seconds faster from zero to 100 kph and has a 325 kph top speed.
The Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD Spyder will first go on sale in Europe, USA, China, and Japan in the summer of 2020. Prices in the USA start a US$229,428.
