After all, air travel is all about efficiency.
Lamborghini Huracán Evo goes RWD
In 2020, Lamborghini will go even more hardcore with its smaller supercar, launching the Huracán Evo RWD as a 3062-pound enthusiasts’ special. Those brave enough to floor the loud pedal will get 602 horsepower at 8000 rpm, along with 413 pound-feet at 6500 rpm for a top speed of 202 mph. With its exciting naturally-aspirated V-10 in the middle, this new rear-wheel-drive Lamborghini will also sprint to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds, while packing reprogrammed nannies that “improve corner-exit traction by 20 percent and enhance oversteer by 30 percent” compared to the 2016–19 Huracán RWD. Expect the smell of sticky Pirellis smoking regularly, despite contact patches measuring a whopping 11 inches at the rear.
Starting at $208,571 in the United States, the 2020 Huracán Evo RWDs will differ from their all-wheel-drive siblings visually by having a new front splitter, as well as even larger air intakes at the front that sport vertical fins. Changes at the rear include a bumper in high gloss black with a more aggressive diffuser, which looks rather good paired with Lambo’s new shade of yellow called Giallo Belenus.
Inside, drivers will still find an 8.4-inch touchscreen in the center console, while on the steering wheel, your ANIMA button will encourage you to go into Corsa mode—but will still offer the slightly-less-manic Sport and buttoned-up Strada modes as well. If you plan on hitting the tracks hard, note that although the new Huracán Evo RWD comes standard with 19-inch Kari rims and cross-drilled steel brakes, 20-inch wheels and carbon-ceramic brakes are also available.
The rest is business as usual. Dry-sump lubrication for track reliability, a 40/60 front-to-rear weight distribution with a limited-slip differential for endless slides, and a dry weight of 3062 pounds, so you can remain 234 pounds heavier than your equally-sized neighbor in a McLaren 720S.
That weight differential doesn’t bother us one bit—Lamborghini had us at 30 percent more oversteer.
