This is the Lamborghini Huracan Evo Rear Wheel Drive and it does exactly what it says. That is to say it’s a Lamborghini, it’s a Huracan, it’s naturally aspirated and yeas it is rear-wheel drive. The bog-standard Huracan Evo was a recipient of styling and technology upgrades for 2019. The updated version of the Huracan has a more aggressive design language. The new front bumper has integrated aeroblades for improved downforce. Along with the rear styling – inspired by the Performante variant – the Huracan Evo shares the same rear diffuser, exhaust pipe position and radiators.
A new ducktail spoiler improves downforce by 5 times as compared to the outgoing model. The 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 engine is shared with the Performante and generates 631 hp; 640 PS at 8,000 rpm and 601 N⋅m (443 lb⋅ft) of torque at 6,500 rpm. 0–60 mph acceleration time of 2.9 seconds, 0–124 mph acceleration time of 9 seconds and a top speed of 202 mph.
The interior has gone from analog to fully digital and now resembles a spaceship cockpit. Right, that’s all good stuff out of the way. So why the Huracan rear-wheel drive? The Huracan Evo is AWD and even has rear-wheel steering to make it more “chuckable” into corners.
The Huracan Rear Wheel Drive does away with all the fancy technology and AWD and adopts a simpler more sustainable rear-wheel-drive Setup. Rear-wheel drive is better, motoring journalists like to go sideways and burn rubber, not at their own expense and always in manufacturer supplied press cars.
The Lamborghini Huracan EVO Rear Wheel Drive does get a sophisticated traction control system. So if the driver is totally incompetent the traction control system will make incompetents look like driving gods. Rear-wheel drive gives the Huracan Evo an “unfiltered… more engaging drive” says Lamborghini. That’s a priceless marketing-led statement for an expensive car.
