If you thought the Lamborghini Huracan Spyder was exciting before, you should really check it out now. This stunning Lambo model has just received the company’s rear-wheel drive system, which means endless fun and a whole lot of cash spent on rubber, a.k.a. tires. Following the hardtop Huracan LP580-2, the RWD Huracan showed up at Los Angeles to tease everyone with its retouched design.
Powered by the popular 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V10, this RWD Lamborghini only benefits from 580 PS (572 hp), compared to the 610 PS (602 hp) of the standard model, but it’s more than enough for a whole lot of fun and to get the supercar from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.6 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 319 km/h (198 mph).
The rear-wheel drive system works alongside the Lamborghini Doppia Frizione seven-speed dual clutch transmission and a launch control function to deliver some serious thrills.
Set to arrive January 2017, the Spyder RWD also features tuned-up steering and optional Lamborghini Dynamic Steering – among many other interesting things. Furthermore, the front of the Huracan RWD shows off a bumper with horizontal slates, just as the of the rear-wheel Huracan Coupe. The rear-end mods include a new bumper and a redesigned grille as well.
As you’d expect, the fabric soft-top can be operated in just 17 seconds at speeds of up to 50 km/h, just in time for a serious dose of fun. Considering that the supercar comes with a weight distribution of 40% – 60%, understeering might be reduced – aside from the obvious entertainment factor.
