The folks over at Singapore Rendezvous 2017 just gave LUXUO the head’s up that the new Lamborghini Huracan Rear Wheel Drive Coupe will be showcased at Singapore’s premier luxury lifestyle event. According to Lamborghini Singapore, the new Huracán RWD Coupé will provide the most exhilarating driving experience possible thanks to newly developed technology which will give you full control of your car, turning a regular drive into a natural endorphin-releasing experience.
When launched, the original Lamborghini Huracan powertrain was designed as an all-wheel drive, today, Lamborghini’s most affordable super car has been made even more affordable thanks to the latest RWD or Rear-Wheel Drive coupe variant of the Lamborghini Huracan. Have no fear, none of the heritage nor potent legacy of the Huracan has been lost, returning is the same 5.2-liter V-10 set within a rigid aluminum and carbon fiber chassis for some of the most exciting rear-wheel-driving of all time – the result of the new Lamborghini Huracan Rear Wheel Drive Coupe strikes the perfect balance between agility, steering response and drivability with less two wheels driven.
The Lamborghini Huracan RWD coupe is a high tech, thoroughly modern super car turned into a relatable driving experience – in short, a super sports car which happens to be really fun to drive thanks to the development of Lamborghini’s Adaptive Network Intelligence MAnagement or ANIMA system, which allows you to adjust the performance characteristics of the Huracán RWD Coupé to your driving needs.
New Huracan RWD coupe: ANIMA Explained and the Driving Experience
The new Huracan RWD coupe’s Adaptive Network Intelligence MAnagement or ANIMA system comes with three pre-set modes: SPORT – for enhanced oversteering behaviour if your looking for some thrills during an otherwise routine drive. CORSA – for true race driving as you push the Lamborghini RWD coupe for maximum performance. Finally, there’s STRADA, a mode of driving for the latest Huracan RWD best suited for comfortable driving with maximum grip for simple travels and commutes.
Beyond the Huracan RWD coupe’s ANIMA system, you have the raw engineered power and acceleration of a longitudinal mid-mount naturally aspirated V-10 engine, where you can take advantage of other technologies such as the Lamborghini Double Clutch (Lamborghini Doppia Frizione – LDF) transmission and rear wheel drive, which you can use to create the exhilarating drive you desire and do so in a way which keeps you as safe as possible thanks to the new EPS system. EPS or electromechanical power steering is Lamborghini’s way of giving you the same finesse and control of the Huracan Rear Wheel Drive coupe at low speeds as you do at higher speeds and thus adaptable to a wide variety of driving conditions. An optional add-on is also available in the form of an innovative Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) system dynamically varies the steering ratio so you always have the ideal steering response for all driving conditions.
Featuring new front and rear bumpers, exhaust pipes, rear grills and 19″ Kari rims, Lamborghini’s latest Huracan is more aggressive than ever. Every line and detail was designed for not just taking the driver’s metaphorical breath away but also literal re-direction of wind across the Lamborghini’s plane surfaces for performance aerodynamics.
Beneath the surface, the latest Huracan Rear Wheel Drive coupe enjoys a chassis of carbon fiber and aluminum: adding to the incredible characteristics which contribute to the driving experience thanks to the lightweight chassis matched by incredible torsional stiffness.
Furthermore, the double wishbone architecture of the latest Huracan Spyder suspension system offers the perfect balance between day-to-day convenience and sports performance.
In addition, an optional magnetorheological shock absorber system is available, designed to adjust the damping effect almost instantaneously on the basis of three factors: driving style, road conditions, and the selected driving mode.
