The COVID-19 may have put a dent in Lamborghini's production and vehicle sales figures for the first quarter of 2020, but that hasn't stopped The House of The Raging Bull from unleashing their latest machine after weathering the COVID-19 storm.
This is the 2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD Spyder. While its name may be a mouthful to say, this latest bull from Lamborghini now serves as the fastest rear-wheel-drive Huracan drop top thanks to over 600 horsepower from its naturally-aspirated V10. It's also the topless twin of the Huracan Evo RWD Coupe which debuted earlier back in January 2020.
With no power being sent to the front wheels, Lamborghini claims that this will allow the driver to have more fun on the road, as well as do more power slides. To do this, the engineers had to tweak the Huracan's Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS). It has a total of three modes, Strada, Sport, and Corsa. Strada provides stability and safety in all driving conditions while Sport allows the driver to slide the rear wheels more while still keeping the driver safe. Corsa, on the other hand, optimizes car's traction and agility when exiting a corner for better on-road performance.
Perhaps serving as the centerpiece of this particular Huracan Evo is its folding top. Lamborghini claims the soft top can be stowed/deployed in as little as 17 seconds at speeds of up to 50 km/h. It's also available in a variety of colors, depending on customer preference. As for the interior itself, an 8.4-inch touchscreen media display provides in-car entertainment and it comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.
The driving force of the Huracan Evo RWD Spyder is an upgraded 5.2-liter, naturally-aspirated V10. Like the hardtop version, it cranks out a meaty 610 PS at 8000 rpm, along with 560 Nm of torque at 6500 rpm. Power is then sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Since it's a convertible, it's a bit slower to 0 – 100 km/h at 3.5 seconds (coupe gets 3.4 seconds) and has a slightly lower top speed of 324 km/h (1km/h less than the hardtop).
“The Huracán 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 Lamborghini’s engineering heritage, experiencing the feedback and engagement from the set-up of a rear-wheel-drive car where the electronic intrusion is minimized while enjoying the sense of freedom and spirit of life that only open-top driving provides,” said Stefano Domenicali, Chairman, and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.
First customer deliveries of the 2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD Spyder will begin in mid-2020. The suggested retail price of the new Lamborghini is at $229,438 (about PhP 11.6 million but will likely be triple in our market). So the question now is, where will you take this Huracan after the COVID-19 pandemic has been eliminated?
