BOLOGNA: The new Lamborghini Huracán EVO rear wheel drive Spyder has a V10 aspirated power plant, delivering the same 610 hp (449 kW) and 560Nm of torque as the coupé version.
The new V10 model provides open-air driving, and a specially tuned Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS).
With a 0-100kph acceleration of just 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 324kph, the Huracán EVO RWD Spyder's soft-top roof stows within 17 seconds under the rear hood, even while driving up to a speed of 50kph.
With soft top both up and down, the driver can also electronically open the rear window, which functions as a windshield when up and highlights the V10 engine’s unique sound when down.
Two removable lateral wind shields dampen lateral aerodynamic noise in the cabin, permitting conversations even at high speeds.
An HMI 8.4-inch touchscreen in the Spyder’s center console controls the car’s functions as well as providing comprehensive connectivity for telephone calls, internet access and Apple CarPlay.
The Huracán EVO Spyder’s ANIMA button on the steering wheel puts the pilot in control of driving modes, with the P-TCS calibrated to suit.
STRADA provides stability and safety in all conditions by minimising rear-wheel slippage, and more proactively managing torque delivery on low-adhesion surfaces.
In SPORT mode, the driver enjoys drifting fun, allowing the rear wheels to slide and skate during acceleration, with torque limited when oversteer angles increase rapidly so the driver can stabilize and control the car.
CORSA mode optimises the car’s traction and agility when exiting a corner in high-performance conditions, maximising dynamics and speed.
The Huracán EVO RWD Spyder’s aluminum and thermoplastic resin body sits on a lightweight hybrid chassis in aluminum and carbon fiber, with a dry weight of 1,509 kg and a weight-to-power ratio of 2.47 kg/hp.
Front/rear weight distribution of 40/60, with double wishbone suspension with overlapped quadrilaterals and passive shock absorbers, providing optimized driver feedback.
Ventilated and cross-drilled steel brakes are fitted to 19-inch Kari rims with specially-developed Pirelli P Zero tires, with optional 20-inch rims and carbon ceramic brakes.
The supercar was launched virtually using Augmented Reality (AR) for the first time on its official website lamborghini.com. Using Apple’s AR Quick Look, the company brought its latest V10 model to customers and fans worldwide provided they have an iPhone or iPad.
The virtual experience enables the viewer to rotate and expand the size of the vehicle, including on a 1:1 scale, looking closely at both its exterior and interior details and taking pictures of the new car with a high level of photorealism. This functionality will soon be available for the entire Lamborghini range.
