Interestingly, the people who make the Evo RWD say it’s “not focused on straight-line speeds or lap records” but rather “designated as an instinctive driver’s car.” That said, the RWD is by no means a slouch as it’ll perform the century sprint in 3.3 seconds from rest and has a top speed of 325 km/h.
“This car reminds the driver of Lamborghini’s pure engineering origins: the driver is at the center of the Huracán EVO RWD’s performance, with unfiltered feedback and an emotive and more engaging driving experience controlled by the pilot” said Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini.
It’s also worth noting that when compared to its all-paw sibling, the RWD is down 21kW and 40Nm. This version also tips the scales (dry) at 1,389kg which is 33kg less when compared to its sibling. Yes, the RWD is not only down on weight but also on power and that doesn’t even matter. Power isn’t everything unless you’re a warlord, obviously.
The company says its 5.2-litre V10 lump has been fettled to deliver a more emotive driving experience. While that remains to be seen and heard, the company also says that they’ve specifically calibrated the Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS) so that it keeps delivering torque to the rear wheels even while the car is realigning itself following a drift.
The various driving modes on the P-TCS like Anima, Strada, Sport and Corsa, have all been calibrated to achieve the highest levels of driving enjoyment, says the brand. Lamborghini also go on to say that the current setup is 30 percent smoother than the previous rear-wheel drive Huracan. Furthermore, has its corner-exit traction improved by 20 percent while its oversteer is enhanced by 30 percent.
The Huracan Evo RWD sports a hybrid chassis made from lightweight aluminium and carbon fibre, giving it a power-to-weight ratio of 2.28 kg/hp (3.05 kg/kW). With a front/rear weight distribution of 40/60, the RWD sits on double wishbone suspension with overlapped quadrilaterals and passive shock absorbers.
In terms of looks, Lamborghini wants the RWD to be distinguishable from its all-traction sibling. Starting with the front fascia, it gets a new front splitter and vertical fins within the front air intakes. The rear gloss black bumper incorporates a new diffuser that’s unique to the RWD.
The 19-inch Kari alloy wheels with specially-developed Pirelli P Zero rubber are offered as standard here, however, as an option 20-inch wheels and carbon ceramic brakes are available. To help make the RWD stand out even more, the marque developed a new yellow colour for it called Giallo Belenus.
Prices for the Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD in Australia have yet to be revealed. However, in Britain, it’ll cost £137,000 or AU$260,360. Stay with us as we bring you more updates on the yellow Raging Bull as it nears its Aussie debut.
