Emotive driving

Automobili Lamborghini became the first company in 2020 to present a new car this year. A long-awaited Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD) model was announced in early January.

The car is a visceral driving machine, delivering 449 kW of power at 8,000 rpm to a lightweight car with rear-wheel drive and dynamic steering for reaching maximum driving pleasure. Although the new Huracán EVO cannot be called a revolution in the model range of the Italian car producer, it is a true spin-off that has incredible technical performance figures, while still being meant for those who like to enjoy a good driving experience. Receiving some efficient visual changes, the car is described by its producers as "an instinctive driver's car" for the people who know what to expect from such a vehicle.

As far as the size of the new car goes, the new model is a bit smaller to its full traction brother. The car's length is 4,520 mm.

The V10 engine with the specially tuned traction control system is aimed at delivering the best driving experience in both dry and wet conditions. The new Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS) is calibrated specifically for the rear-wheel drive Huracán EVO, delivering torque even during the phase where the car is realigning following drifting or side-slipping. While an ordinary traction control system waits for a car to become fully stable before executing torque again, the P-TCS car delivers torque in advance, avoiding a harsh torque cut.

In order to achieve the lightweight characteristics of the car, the Lamborghini Huracán EVO RWD's hybrid chassis integrates lightweight aluminum and carbon fiber with an aluminum and thermoplastic resin body, with a total dry weight of 1,389 kg giving a weight-to-power ratio of 2.28 kg/hp.

Weighing just 1,389 kg, the Lamborghini Huracán EVO RWD has a top speed of 325 km/h and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds. "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 Huracán EVO RWD's performance, with unfiltered feedback and an emotive and more engaging driving experience controlled by the pilot. The Lamborghini Huracán EVO RWD performance relies on the harmony between man and machine: driving skills and the Huracán EVO's RWD mechanics deliver perfectly balanced dynamics, physical feedback and a pure performance. The Huracán EVO RWD enhances the V10 Huracán line-up with a model appealing to brand newcomers as well as those seeking sublime driving fun."

Lamborghini's Ad Personam program provides various options for color and trim personalization, allowing owners of the Lamborghini Huracán EVO RWD to show their individuality on the vehicle. In order to emphasize the updated shape of the car the new color, Giallo Belenus (yellow), has been developed together with a dedicated leather and Alcantara color for the interior trim, matching the new exterior paint.
