Lamborghini Huracan to go rear-drive at LA
An open-top edition of the completely new Lamborghini Huracán can be due to arrive in 2015
Rear-wheel-drive edition of the Lambo Huracan will be unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show, ahead of sales starting in 2016
The Italian brand’s boss Stephan Winkelmann revealed at last year’s Pebble Beach Concours event which a rear-drive Huracan was under consideration. “We did which with the Gallardo so which might be an option,” he said. “We are a four-wheel-drive super-sports car [a new] yet why should we not do a rear-drive option? We need lots of derivatives. Customers expect which as well as we always need something completely new to talk about.”
at which point which has emerged which the rear-drive Huracan will make its debut at the VW Group Night prior to the Los Angeles show. Autocar understands which the debut will be followed up swiftly by a sales launch within the first quarter of 2016 – although Lamborghini’s close relationship with its customer base means which key buyers are likely to already have put down deposits or at least registered interest within the vehicle.
Lamborghini sold the rear-drive Gallardo as a less expensive alternative to the standard four-wheel-drive car; which can be unlikely to be repeated with the Huracan. Expect the rear-drive edition to be packaged as a more extreme as well as lighter variant – as well as to carry a higher cost tag with which. which can be also likely to be a limited edition, echoing the 250-unit run of the rear-wheel-drive Gallardo – yet could well be followed by a rear-drive edition of the Huracan LP610-4 Spyder.
