The master designers at Lamborghini headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese have produced a boisterous rear-wheel-drive version of the Huracan EVO supercar, just for the fun of it. Powered by a thrumming V10 that delivers 610hp, the rear-wheel-drive orientation not only makes the vehicle special in the Lambo stable, but also delivers an added degree of driving thrill to the lucky owners.
Weighing in at a little over 3,000 pounds with a top speed of just over 200mph and a neck-snapping giddy-of 0 to 62mph in 3.3 seconds, you would expect the Huracan EVO Rear-Wheel Drive to be a purpose-built racer for straight-line performance and record-setting oval laps. However, the intent was to produce an immaculate vehicle that puts the driver front and center, testing their capabilities:
“The Huracán EVO rear-wheel-drive puts the car in the driver’s hands: the driving experience is delivered by the hardware,” says Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini. “This car reminds the driver of Lamborghini’s pure engineering origins: the driver is at the center of the performance, with unfiltered feedback and an emotive and more engaging driving experience controlled by the pilot.”
While all the power going to the back provides a more rollicking drive experience, a newly tuned traction control system continues to deliver torque even when the car is realigning following a drift or side-slip. The thrills of rear end that wants to get out in front of you, but with engineering to keep you safe and secure amid the joy. $208,571
