Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 Spyder coming in 2015, RWD version also on the list

Article by Christian A., on August 20, 2014

Last weekend at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, Lamborghini unveiled the Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeo but company’s CEO Stephan Winkelmann also revealed something about manufacturer’s future plans. According to Winkelmann, the Huracan LP610-4 Spyder will make its debut next year but what he also confirmed is a rear-wheel-drive version of the Huracan.

As you may know already, the Gallardo had the LP550-2 Balboni edition, a rear-wheel-drive version using a manual transmission dedicated to Valentino Balboni, its former chief test driver who retired in October 2008 after 40 years spent at Lamborghini.

Lamborghini offered only 250 units of the LP550-2 Balboni and it might do the same thing with the new Huracan. A Superleggera version is expected as well.

The Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 made its debut earlier this year at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show and it is powered by a 5.2-liter V10 engine rated at 610 hp (448 kW) at 8,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 560 Nm at 6,500 rpm.

With these numbers, the Huracan LP610-4 is able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds, 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.9 seconds and a top speed of 320 km/h (200 mph).

Lamborghini’s new model was named after a fighting bull of the Spanish Conte de la Patilla breed and is remembered for its courage and strong sense of attack.
