Rear-wheel drive, drop-top Lamborghini Huracan goes on sale in India.
If you’re a car enthusiast and memory serves you right, you may recall that Lamborghini launched the Huracan LP580-2 – a rear-wheel drive (RWD) version of the baby Lambo – in India in 2015. Now if that didn’t set your pulse racing, Lamborghini has now launched the topless version of the rear-wheel drive Huracan. Billed as the Huracan RWD Spyder, the new drop-top is the latest addition to Lamborghini’s India line-up and is priced at a whopping Rs 3.45 crore (ex-showroom, pan-India).
Now, the basics remain all the same in the Huracan RWD Spyder. At the heart of the matter will be the same 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 motor that churns out 571bhp and 540Nm of torque. Power reserves are channeled furiously to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. 0-100km/h will be done within 3.6 seconds before hitting a top speed of 319km/h. Three driving modes are on offer - Strada for daily use, Sport for more performance, and Corsa for maximum track-oriented performance, which as Lamborghini puts it, is tuned to provide “oversteering characteristics”.
Apart from a soft-top roof, there’re a few more design elements that will help you differentiate the Huracan RWD Spyder from other versions of the baby Lambo in the family. At the front, the Huracan RWD Spyder gets larger air intakes so as to channel more downforce to the front axle along with new 19-inch Kari rims that come shod with Pirelli PZero rubber. And once the roof drops – it takes only about 17 seconds to do that, and it’s done up to speeds of 50km/h – two distinctive fins rise up from the folding roof.
