It appears that the picture leaked yesterday was indeed the new 2020 Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive. Just a few hours after the first image surfaced online, Lamborghini dropped the official details on the rear-wheel-drive version of the Huracan Evo.
As you have probably expected it, the new Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive is powered by the same 5.2-liter V-10 engine. However, while the all-wheel-drive version delivers a total of 631 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque, the RWD delivers “only” 610 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. Lamborghini says that the new Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive was not designed to brake any straight-line speeds or lap records so the sprint from 0 to 60 mph is done in 3.3 seconds and top speed if 325 km/h (202 mph). When compared to the standard Huracan EVO, the 0 to 60 mph sprint time is up 0.4 seconds, while top speed remained the same.
The new Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive comes with a specifically calibrated Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS) – a system that delivers torque in advance, avoiding a harsh torque cut and assuring better traction when exiting a corner.
The P-TCS can be activated via the steering wheel’s ANIMA button (Adaptive Network Intelligent Management: ‘soul’ in Italian) and comes with three different modes: STRADA, SPORT and CORSA. In STRADA, the P-TCS minimizes rear wheel slippage to ensure stability and safety in all conditions: with a more proactive strategy, P-TCS manages torque delivery on low-adhesion surfaces.
In SPORT mode, the P-TCS maximizes the fun-to-drive experience: the rear wheels can slide and skate during acceleration, for easy drifting fun without compromising safety. The system recognizes conditions where the angle of oversteer increases rapidly and limits torque delivery to the rear wheels, allowing the driver to perfectly control and stabilize the car.
In CORSA, the P-TCS is calibrated to achieve the rear-wheel slip that optimizes the car’s traction and agility when exiting a corner, allowing the driver to maximize performance. The P-TCS improves the smoothness of intervention by 30% compared to the previous Huracán RWD model; improves corner-exit traction by 20% and enhances oversteer by 30%.
When compared to the standard Huracan EVO, the new RWD version will get a new front splitter and vertical fins within the larger, framed front air intakes. The rear bumper in high gloss black incorporates a new diffuser unique to the Huracán EVO RWD.
On the interior the car gets a HMI 8.4” touchscreen in the center console of the car, controlling all aspects of the car’s functions as well as managing full connectivity such as telephone calls, internet access, and including Apple CarPlay.
The Huracan EVO RWD will also get a specially designed color: Giallo Belenus (yellow)combined with a dedicated leather and Alcantara color for the interior trim, matching the new exterior paint.
Sales will begin in the spring of 2020 at a price of $208,571.
