The Lamborghini HuracÃ¡n EVO Rear-Wheel Drive Spyder: Celebrating Life in the Open Air
- HuracÃ¡n EVO Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD) for open-air driving fun and freedom
- 610 hp and 560 Nm of torque, accelerating from 0-62 mph in 3.5 s with a top speed of 201 mph
- 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 31mph: open-air driving enhanced by sound of naturally aspirated V10 Lamborghini engine
Automobili Lamborghini reveals the new HuracÃ¡n EVO Rear-Wheel Drive Spyder virtually, using for the first time Augmented Reality (AR) on its official websiteÂ 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 coupÃ© version. With a 0-62 mph acceleration of just 3,5 seconds and a top speed of 201 mph, like its coupÃ© stablemate, the Spyder is an instinctive driverâ€™s car, delivering a fun-to-drive experience via hardware rather than software.
The HuracÃ¡n EVO RWD Spyderâ€™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 Spyderâ€™s exterior lines ensure drag reduction and downforce matches that of the coupÃ© without requiring additional aerodynamic appendages, while enhancing the rear-wheel drive carâ€™s balance and dynamism with roof both up and down.
Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini, comments: â€œThe HuracÃ¡n 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 Lamborghiniâ€™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.â€
Driving fun in the open air
The HuracÃ¡n EVO RWD Spyder is specially engineered as an instinctive driverâ€™s car, still producing top performance figures but focused on the pilotâ€™s skills and the set-up of the rear-wheel drive powertrain, 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 driverâ€™s senses are further aroused by the sound of the V10 aspirated engine responding to the throttle during maneuvers.
The HuracÃ¡n EVO Spyderâ€™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 carâ€™s traction and agility when exiting a corner in high-performance conditions, maximizing dynamics and speed.
The HuracÃ¡n EVO RWD Spyderâ€™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 19â€ Kari rims with specially-developed Pirelli P Zero tires, with optional 20â€ rims and carbon ceramic brakes.
Designed for life
The HuracÃ¡n EVO RWD Spyder continues the V10 Lamborghiniâ€™s powerful design with new front and rear features, clearly differentiating it from its HuracÃ¡n 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 HuracÃ¡n EVO RWD Spyder.
The Spyderâ€™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 carâ€™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 engineâ€™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 8.4â€ touchscreen in the Spyderâ€™s center console controls the carâ€™s functions as well as providing comprehensive connectivity for telephone calls, internet access and Apple CarPlay.
The HuracÃ¡n EVO RWD Spyder is a driverâ€™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.
