The Lamborghini Huracan EVO has ditched its four-wheel-drive system to become an “instinctive driver’s car”.
Those are the words of the Italian supercar maker, which claims it has tweaked its V10 supercar for “driving fun”. As part of that, the company has stripped away the normal Huracan EVO’s four-wheel-drive system and re-tuned the traction control.
However, Lamborghini has reduced the power output of the 5.2-litre V10 petrol engine. Where the normal EVO produces 630bhp, the RWD makes do with 602bhp. Nevertheless, the car will get to 62mph in 3.3 seconds and hit 202mph.
It isn’t just the oily bits that have changed, either. Lamborghini has revamped the RWD’s exterior to set it apart from the four-wheel-drive car. That means there’s a new front splitter beneath larger air intakes, and a new rear diffuser.
“The Huracan EVO RWD puts the car in the driver’s hands. The driving experience is delivered by the hardware,” said Stefano Domenicali, the chairman and CEO of Lamborghini. “This car reminds the driver of Lamborghini’s pure engineering origins. The driver is at the centre of the car’s performance, with unfiltered feedback and an emotive and more engaging driving experience controlled by the pilot.
The new Lamborghini Huracan EVO RWD will have an RRP of £137,000 plus taxes in the UK. In Europe, it will cost €159,443 plus taxes, and American prices will start at $208,571 plus taxes.
