The Lamborghini Huracan Spyder Gets a Cool RWD Variant

Lamborghini Huracan Spyder RWD

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.
