The latest from Lambo is the one that offers you the most in-your-face experience of the whole Huracán Evo lineup. The one that doesn’t bother sharing power between the front and rear wheels to help you manage the prodigious power it produces. The one that’ll let you run in the open air to speeds that, well, we’re not sure what exactly would happen. It’s the Huracán Evo RWD Spyder, and with the automaker’s factory back up and running, it’s expected to arrive this summer.
Lamborghini’s Huracán Evo is the mid-cycle refresh of the company’s entry-level exotic, and we’ve seen it previously in all-wheel drive forms as well as the RWD coupe. But Lamborghini is all about extreme and experience, and that might just make this one the top of the heap when it comes to giving you all you can handle. That’s thanks to the fabric roof that can be opened or closed at speeds of up to 50 km/h.
With that top down, or even just the rear glass that can raise or lower independently of the roof, you’re now as close as you can get to the fury of that 610 hp, 5.2L, naturally aspirated V10 engine screaming behind you. No more steel roof and sound insulation between the tip of your ears and the tip of the tailpipes.
It can hit 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds, just like the coupe, and it can manage 324 km/h flat-out, but the coupe will never put the wind in your hair like this one.
As Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali describes it, “the Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive Spyder doubles the driving fun, delivering raw driving pleasure with the opportunity to celebrate life outside.” And we’re all ready to celebrate life outside right about now.
The Huracán Evo RWD Spider gets an Anima button on the steering wheel to control the drive modes and the traction control system is tuned to deliver grip even when you’re trying to show off your best drifting moves. Closed course only, obviously. It has an 8.4-inch touchscreen interface that has Apple CarPlay but still no Android Auto.
Cutting the roof adds some weight, about 120 kg versus the coupe version, but performance by the numbers stays the same. You can tell the RWD version apart from the four-wheel drive Huracán Evo through styling tweaks like the front splitter with larger air intakes and vertical fins, a special rear diffuser, and a gloss black rear bumper.
If you’re using an Apple device, you can get a better look at the car now, using Apple AR quick look through Lamborghini’s website. The rest of us will need to wait for the summer for this one to arrive.
