If the idea of a rear-wheel driven Huracan EVO doesn’t already sound like a handful, the new Huracan EVO RWD Spyder is the ultimate drop-top supercar for the wild and free-spirited.

The Huracan EVO RWD Spyder houses the same 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated engine as the non-Spyder model, with 610 hp and 560 Nm, to solely power the rear wheels as its name suggests.

0 to 100 km/h is over in just 3.5 seconds – 0.2 seconds slower than the non-Spyder model. Its top speed however has barely been affected; at 324 km/h compared to the non-Spyder’s 325 km/h.

Not bad when you consider that the Spyder weighs 120 kg more than its hard top sibling at 1,509 kg. Lamborghini says the Spyder’s roof can be retracted within 17 seconds while the vehicle is on the move – up to 50 km/h. For the most raw experience of the V10 wail, the rear window can be electronically opened and close, whether the top is up or down.

Locally, Lamborghini launched the all-wheel drive Huracan EVO last year, to the tune of RM1.1 million before taxes. Over in its home country, the Huracan is used at the Guglielmo Marconi Airport in Bologna, Italy to escort planes taxiing to the runway or to their parking stands.

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
