Lamborghini Auckland showcases Huracán EVO RWD to fans virtually

Lamborghini Auckland's showroom went digital this week for the virtual launch of the new Lamborghini Huracán EVO RWD.

The new Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive delivers on the promise of involving, visceral on-road performance and a unique design which underscores the idea of pure driving emotion.

The latest from Lamborghini boasts an impressive 449kW and 560Nm of torque while utilising a lightweight chassis with a Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS) specially calibrated according to each of the supercar’s driving modes.

Automobili Lamborghini has launched the new Lamborghini Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive, virtually for the first time on Lamborghini Auckland’s digital platforms.  

The virtual event gave customers in New Zealand the opportunity to explore Lamborghini’s visceral new driving machine – which can deliver 449 kW of power at 8,000 rpm and 560Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm to the lightweightrear-wheel drive iteration -  for maximum driving fun, in the comfort of their own home. 

Weighing just 1,389kg, the Huracán EVO RWD has a top speed of 325km/h and accelerates from 

0 to 100km/h in 3.3 seconds. The Huracán EVO RWD’s hybrid chassis integrates lightweight aluminum and carbon fiber with an aluminum and thermoplastic resin body. 

Showcasing a unique new design, the Huracán EVO RWD proclaims its designation as an instinctive driver’s car. 

“The Huracán EVO RWD puts the driver at the centre of the product’s performance,” commented Andrea Ruggiero, Area Manager Oceania at Automobili Lamborghini, during the event. 

“It is capable of delivering an engaging experience through pure and unfiltered driving feedback. The driving feeling is emphasised and optimised by the new aerodynamic, front and rear bumper which have been redesigned accordingly, increasing downforce as well decreasing air resistance.” 

The Huracán EVO RWD’s V10 engine delivers more than just power to the rear-wheel drive set-up: the sound of the naturally aspirated power plant combines with the specially tuned traction control system to deliver the most emotive, fun-to-drive experience in both dry and wet conditions, and even snow. 

This new Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS) is calibrated specifically for the rear-wheel drive Huracán EVO, delivering torque even during the phase where the car is realigning following drifting or side slipping.  

Whereas a ‘normal’ traction control system delivers a sharp decoupling, waiting for a car to become completely stable before delivering torque again, the P-TCS car delivers torque in advance, avoiding a harsh torque cut and assuring better traction when exiting a corner. 

The P-TCS intervention is calibrated according to the Huracán EVO RWD’s driving modes, selected via the steering wheel’s ANIMA button (Adaptive Network Intelligent Management, or “soul” in Italian). 

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 optimises the car’s traction and agility when exiting a corner, allowing the driver to maximize performance. The P-TCS  improves smoothness of intervention by 30% compared to the previous Huracán RWD model, improves corner-exit traction by 20% and enhances oversteer by 30%. 

With front/rear weight distribution of 40/60, the Huracán EVO RWD sits on double wishbone suspension with overlapped quadrilaterals and passive shock absorbers. The electro-mechanical, servo-assisted Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) is tuned specifically for the Huracán EVO RWD, ensuring maximum feedback.  

The supercar’s seven-speed dual clutch gearbox ensures the fastest gear changes, with launch control for maximum acceleration from a standing start. The 19” Kari rims with specially-developed Pirelli P Zero tires are fitted with ventilated and cross-drilled steel brakes. As an option 20” rims and carbo-ceramic brakes are available. 

Ben Dallas, Brand Manager Lamborghini Auckland commented during the virtual launch, "New Zealand is blessed with literally thousands of kilometres of superb driving roads, and the Huracán EVO RWD is the perfect machine to enjoy them.  

“This car offers the purest experience, allowing drivers to savour every camber and curve. This is a fantastic addition to the Huracán family". 

Joining its 4WD stablemate, the Huracán EVO RWD V10’s base price begins at $395,000 plus ORCs.
