Since the Lamborghini Huracan was freshened for the 2020 model year and given the Evo badge, the automaker has quickly rolled out additional variants of the sports car.
The rear-wheel-drive Huracan Evo Spyder is the latest to join the mix with a recent online debut. Like the rwd coupe introduced this year, power is supplied by a V-10 engine with 610 hp and 560 newton-meters (413 pound-feet) of torque.
Just as important, the convertible gets the new performance traction-control system that debuted in the coupe. Lamborghini says the system delivers torque when the vehicle is realigning after drifting or side-slipping.
"With rear-wheel drive that means basically [you] go back to your instincts, go back to your senses, be yourself and experience the purest technology and excitement of rear-wheel drive with an advanced traction-control system that allows the driver to have a lot of fun," Alessandro Farmeschi, CEO of Automobili Lamborghini America, said in an interview.
The lightweight softtop roof system adds 120 kg (264 pounds) over the rwd coupe. The roof stows in 17 seconds, Lamborghini says.
The Huracan Evo Spyder accelerates from 0-100 kph (62 mph) in 3.5 seconds. It has a top speed of 324 kph (201 mph).
