2015 Lamborghini Huracan 09

Rumour has it that Lamborghini will debut a rear-wheel-drive version of the Huracan at the upcoming Los Angeles motor show, with sales to commence early next year.

According to Autocar, Lamborghini chief Stephan Winkelmann revealed at last year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance that the company was considering an RWD Huracan to replace the Gallardo LP550-2.

“We did it with the Gallardo so it might be an option,” Winkelmann said.

“We are a four-wheel-drive super-sports car [manufacturer] but why should we not do a rear-drive option? We need lots of derivatives. Customers expect it and we always need something new to talk about.”

There is a very good possibility that the rear-drive Huracan to be lighter and more potent than the regular model. It will be offered in limited numbers, just like the aforementioned Gallardo LP550-2. And could a rear-wheel-drive Huracan Spyder follow soon? It’s possible, Autocar understands.
