Put on your seatbelts and prepare your wallets, because there’s a new version of an iconic supercar on the way. Lamborghini today announced the imminent arrival of the 2020 update of the rear-wheel drive Huracán and it looks like the best possible kind of madness.
The Huracan EVO Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD) takes the brutal performance of a Huracan and multiplies it with driving pleasure by placing you at the centre of the driving experience. Designed not for straight line speed but rather for handling and cornering, the RWD delivers instant driver feedback courtesy of updated traction technology. It also comes in at a significantly more affordable price than previous models. $50,000 more affordable, if the released prices in the rest of the world are anything to go by.
“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.
Not that the RWD is short on performance, of course. Weighing 1389kg and getting you from 0-100km/h in 3.3 seconds, it will take you onto a top speed of 325km/h. It’s no slouch, then. But as Domenicali says, the Huracán isn’t about top speed or track records, it’s about driving pleasure.
Said pleasure arrives courtesy of the new Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS). Set up specifically for the rear-wheel drive Huracán EVO, Lamborghini say it “delivers torque even during the phase where the car is realigning following drifting or side-slipping.”
Translation: prepare to get very good at drifting.
The Huracan EVO RWD will be available in the Middle East in the second quarter of 2020. Plenty of time to practice your power slides.
