When Automobili Lamborghini SpA created a rear-wheel-drive version of the original Huracan LP610-4 back in late 2015 (about 20 months after introducing the Huracan in Geneva), they called it the RWD, but some knew this was also the LP580-2 model, with the typical LP standing for Longitudinal Posteriore (mid-mounted in a longitudinal position) with 580 being the horsepower from the V10 engine and the 2 standing for two-wheel drive, or rear-wheel drive. The 4 naturally stands for AWD or four-wheel drive in this case.
Lamborghini has since dropped the entire LP designation on both the Aventador and the Huracán, and today we have the Aventador S and SVJ, and the Huracán EVO (the Performante is no longer in production), and now they’ve added the Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive or RWD, and while the EVO comes with 640 hp, this new EVO RWD has been detuned to 610 hp, just like on the previous model that came with 610 hp and 580 hp respectively.
Highlights of Lamborghini Huracán EVO RWD
The Lamborghini Huracán EVO RWD has been specifically created to offer more fun to drive for those that can handle dropping 610 hp to the rear wheels only on a wet or snowy road. The Lamborghini Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS) has been specifically modified for this version of the Huracán to deliver torque even when drifting to offer better traction coming out of a corner.
This P-TCS is naturally coupled to the ANIMA setting on the steering wheels, the driving modes are still STRADA, SPORT, and CORSA or should that be ‘safe’, ‘fun’, and ‘trouble’? Keep in mind the Huracán EVO RWD only weighs 1,389 kg, so she offers a power-to-weight ratio of 2.28 kg/hp and a weight distribution of 40/60 front to rear.
Back in 2015, the Huracán LP580-2 was introduced with the new Kari wheels in 19 inch, these have been made available on the EVO RWD too, but Lamborghini also introduced the 19-inch Vanir rims now, available in either silver or black if you want to go bigger you can opt for the 20 inch Aesir rims or the cross-spoke Narvi Forged wheels in 20 inch. These wheels cover steel disk brakes that are standard fitment, the carbon-ceramic brakes are available as an option, however.
On the outside, apart from the wheels, the Huracán EVO RWD can be distinguished by the new front and rear design, the front bumper comes with a more aggressive-looking design for the outer intakes, complete with vertical fins, while the rear diffuser also gets a different styling, just to make sure you don’t mistake this new ‘driver’ car for the 4WD counterpart.
The Lamborghini Huracán EVO RWD is a rear-wheel-drive variant of the Huracán EVO supercar. Its performance is characterized by a blend of agility, power, and driving exhilaration. Key performance specifications of the Lamborghini Huracán EVO RWD include:
Engine: The Huracán EVO RWD is powered by a 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10 engine that generates 610 horsepower (449 kW) and 413 lb-ft (560 Nm) of torque.
Drivetrain: As the name suggests, the EVO RWD features a rear-wheel-drive configuration with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (Lamborghini Doppia Frizione, or LDF).
Acceleration: The Huracán EVO RWD can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100 km/h) in 3.3 seconds.
Top Speed: It has a top speed of approximately 202 mph (325 km/h).
Weight: The dry weight of the Huracán EVO RWD is about 3,062 lbs (1,389 kg), making it lighter than its all-wheel-drive counterpart, the Huracán EVO.
Handling: The rear-wheel-drive configuration offers a more engaging driving experience, with the potential for oversteer, which many drivers find thrilling. The car is equipped with a Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS) to enhance handling, and the Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) system provides precise feedback to the driver.
Aerodynamics: The Huracán EVO RWD features improved aerodynamics compared to its predecessor, with an emphasis on enhancing downforce and drag reduction. The front splitter and rear diffuser are designed to optimize airflow and improve stability at high speeds.
MPG & Fuel Economy
Keep in mind that fuel consumption figures can vary based on factors like driving conditions, driving style, and other variables.
The EPA estimated fuel economy for the Huracán EVO RWD is as follows:
City: Approximately 13 miles per gallon (mpg) or 18.1 liters per 100 kilometers (l/100km)
Highway: Approximately 18 miles per gallon (mpg) or 13.1 liters per 100 kilometers (l/100km)
Combined: Approximately 15 miles per gallon (mpg) or 15.7 liters per 100 kilometers (l/100km)
The Huracán EVO RWD features cylinder deactivation technology that temporarily shuts off one bank of cylinders during low-load driving situations, such as cruising at constant speeds. This helps improve fuel efficiency by reducing the engine’s workload when full power is not required.
Please note that these figures are approximate and can vary based on various factors like driving style, road conditions, and vehicle maintenance. While the Lamborghini Huracán EVO RWD is not the most fuel-efficient car, it is essential to remember that its primary focus is delivering exceptional performance and an exhilarating driving experience.
