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.
