Lamborghini unveiled the Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive Spyder at INR 3.54 Cr (Ex-Showroom) PAN India. The new V10 model brings the freedom of open-air driving and lightweight engineering, with rear-wheel drive and a specially tuned Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS). With a 0-100 km/h acceleration of just 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 324 km/h, like its coupé stablemate, the Spyder is an instinctive driver’s car, delivering a fun-to-drive experience via hardware rather than software. India’s first Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive Spyder in Blu Sideris was delivered today.
Francesco Scardaoni, Regional Director for Automobili Lamborghini in Asia Pacific said: “Huracán EVO RWD Spyder is an instinctive driver’s car, engineered for individuals who prefers to experience the feedback and engagement from the set-up of a rear-wheel drive car where electronic intrusion is minimized. As Huracán EVO RWD Spyder features a fun-to-drive experience, it definitely adds vitality to the super sports cars market in India as reflected in the increasing number of supercar aficionados.”
The Huracán EVO RWD Spyder’s design optimizes the integration and function of the extremely lightweight soft top. The Spyder is a true Lamborghini with roof open and closed, sporting inimitable lines from every profile that confirm it is as dynamic in both looks and performance. The Spyder’s exterior lines ensure drag reduction and downforce matches that of the coupé without requiring additional aerodynamic appendages, while enhancing the rear-wheel drive car’s balance and dynamism with roof both up and down.
Sharad Agarwal, Head of Lamborghini India, said, “India is one of the strategic markets for Lamborghini and we consistently invest to create unique bespoke experiences for our customers. Today is no exception as we deliver the Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive Spyder to one of our discerning clients. The Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive Spyder truly doubles the driving fun and we look forward to see our customer and prospects in India enjoying the sense of freedom and spirit of life that open-top driving provides.”
The 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. The high-performance fun is accompanied by the inimitable sound of the V10 aspirated power plant, delivering the same 610 hp (449 kW) and 560 Nm of torque as the coupé version. The specially tuned P-TCS traction control system is designed for a thrilling performance in all conditions, consistently delivering torque and assuring traction even as the Spyder is realigning after sharp cornering or drifting.
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 minimizing 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 optimizes the car’s traction and agility when exiting a corner in high-performance conditions, maximizing dynamics and speed. In a range of color options, the soft-top closely complements the rear-wheel drive car’s body lines and color options, while ensuring a quiet cockpit for easy conversation and entertainment with roof up or down. 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.
