Lamborghini might develop rear-wheel-drive Huracan
The Huracán’s line-up may soon see a rear-wheel-drive version, company boss Stephan Winkelmann has revealed.
Speaking at the recently concluded Pebble Beach Concours event, which also saw the unveiling of the firm's new Super Trofeo racer, Winkelmann said, “We did it with the Gallardo so it might be an option. We are a four-wheel-drive super-sports car [manufacturer] but why should we not do a rear-drive option?”
Winkelmann also hinted that other derivatives of the Huracán could be on the way. “We need lots of derivatives. Customers expect it and we always need something new to talk about,” he said. An open-top Spyder version of the Huracán is expected and it’s likely that more extreme, lighter versions will also eventually be made.
The Gallardo was available in faster, lighter form as the Superleggera and as the rear-drive LP550-2 Balboni. Just 250 examples of the Balboni were offered - a pattern Lamborghini would likely stick to for the new rear-drive Huracán.
