Design & Style

The Lamborghini Huracan Evo Rear-Wheel-Drive Spyder is designed to be a lifestyle choice. Up front, the car looks similar to the RWD Coupe. It gets laser LED headlights with its signature DRLs. However, the supercar gets a new front splitter and vertical fins within the large framed front air dams. This will allow more airflow and better aerodynamics.

The car on display belonged to a customer. This particular buyer had opted for a bespoke Blu Sideris paint shade. The RWD Spyder was fitted with five-spoke, 19-inch alloy wheels. The brake calipers were finished in a shade of Red, which drew attention to the big petal discs.

The supercar also gets big air ducts on either side behind the doors, that channel air to the radiators that cool the massive V10 engine. It also gets the ‘HURACAN EVO RWD' logo mounted on the air-ducts. The rear bumper now incorporates a new diffuser unique to the Huracan Evo RWD Spyder.

The new SuperSport Exhaust looks amazing and sounds even better. However, there might be an exhaust system that is being developed by Akrapovic, which will be lighter, slightly louder and will also increase power figures.

The Spyder's soft-top roof can be opened within 17 seconds and can be operated while driving up to a speed of 50 km/h. With the soft-top either up or down, the driver can electronically open the rear window, which functions as a windshield when up, and enhances the V10 engine's unique sound. Two detachable lateral windshields dampen aerodynamic noise in the cabin.

However, since it's a convertible supercar, the beautiful V10 engine is no longer visible completely as the roof needs some space to collapse. One can also opt for a carbon fibre cover for the engine. When the cover is opened, one will be able to see only a part of the engine and the exhaust system.

‘Sport' Mode allows the driver to enjoy drifting fun, allowing the rear wheels to slip and slide during acceleration. Torque is limited when oversteer angles increase rapidly so the driver can stabilize and control the car. And last but not least, it has the ‘Corsa' Mode, that optimizes the car's traction and agility when exiting a corner in high-performance conditions, maximizing dynamics and speed.
