Lamborghini Huracan Evo Now Comes In RWD
Lamborghini knows how to do undiluted driving thrills and the marques highly acclaimed Huracan model is testament to that. Now, building on the Evo variant, Lamborghini has brought a new member of the Huracan family to the fore in the guise of a rear-wheel-drive only variant.
Over the last several decades, Lamborghini has somewhat become a byword for something out of the ordinary in the motoring world. Placing outrageous performance and Italian flair at the forefront of everything that they do, the Italian marque knows how to deliver, and what has been delivered with the new RWD Huracan Evo is a sense of driving theatre unlike any other.
Whilst in the Huracan range we have already seen more focused variants, for example, the Performante and more recently, the Evo Lamborghini’s decision to bring a rear-wheel-drive only option to the table opens up a whole new range of driving dynamics and feel.
So, we’re giving the car the plaudits, but what exactly makes the car differ from a ‘standard’ Huracan Evo?
Well, first off there is the weight. This has come down by a noticeable 33kg, thanks partly to the removal of a four-wheel-drive powertrain and the associated mechanicals.
Whilst the rear-wheel-drive version is ever so slightly quicker, it’s a little more sluggish off the line with a standstill to 62 mph time coming in at 3.3 seconds thanks to the lack of additional pulling power from the front axle. However, once up to speed you won’t be lacking any performance thanks to the 5.2 L V10’s incredible power delivery.
With the removal of the four-wheel drive, drivetrain also goes the rear-wheel steer. However, in its place, Lamborghini has developed a system called Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS) which is designed to give a greater degree of feel in different vehicle performance settings.
Else where little else changes, you still have those trademark Huracan looks and the more aggressive touches that accompany the Evo. Inside the story is very much the same matching that of the Evo which surfaced early last year, a classic case of if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.
It’s clear Lamborghini have really thought about the driving experience whilst removing a highly popular four-wheel-drive system. Whether you like your Huracan welded to the ground or a bit more of an animal, with Lamborghini’s new Huracan variant the choice is now yours.
