According to reports, a rear-wheel drive variant of the potent Lamborghini Huracan will be unveiled at this month’s Los Angeles Auto Show 2015 with sales commencing in the new year.
Select press outlets have received invitations to see a global premiere from Lamborghini at LA and Autocar suggests that it will be the rear-wheel drive Huracan. The Italian marque’s boss Stephan Winkelmann has already hinted that such a model was being developed in a similar vein to the rear-wheel drive Gallardos offered.
Unlike the rear-wheel drive Lamborghini Gallardo models however, it is claimed that the RWD Huracan won’t be cheaper than the all-wheel drive variant. As a matter of fact, it could carry with it a selection of additional weight saving elements and ultimately be priced above the existing Huracan.
Lamborghini initially revealed the Gallardo with rear-wheel drive in the form of the Valentino Balboni edition, limited to just 250 units. Soon after however, the automaker offered cheaper, rear-wheel drive alternatives in the form of the LP550-2 and LP560-2.
