That looks pretty punchy. What is it?

Well, assuming that you're on this site because you know your cipollas when it comes to cars, you've got to at least guess that this is a Lamborghini Huracan Evo Spyder of some kind. So let us fill in the solitary blank: it's the two-wheel-drive version, aka the Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD Spyder.

Ooh, goody! Can you tell me more?

Erm... yes? Otherwise, this wouldn't be much of a news piece, would it? Right. So last year, the Huracan evolved into the Huracan Evo (there's a clue to the evolution in the name), a four-wheel-drive mid-engined tin-top with a 5.2-litre V10. That 640hp model soon lost its fixed roof to begat the Huracan Evo Spyder, before Lambo went back to the Coupe and stripped out a couple of driveshafts, as well as 30hp and 40Nm, for the creation of the Huracan Evo RWD (rear-wheel drive). So what do you think the car you're looking at in the pictures is?

The Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD Spyder?

Got it in one. This is the 610hp, rear-wheel-drive version of Lamborghini's smallest open-top car. It weighs in at 1,509kg and can run 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds, before going on to a top speed (where permitted) of 201mph. Want those figures in some sort of relative context? Then know that the Evo RWD Coupe is two-tenths quicker to 62mph (3.3 seconds) and 1mph faster overall, while the 4WD Spyder is more accelerative again (0-62mph in 3.1 seconds), albeit no faster than the 2WD fixed-roof Huracan Evo at 202mph flat out.

Technically speaking, the new Huracan Evo RWD Spyder has a bespoke-calibrated version of the Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS), the steering-wheel-mounted Anima drive-modes switch, Lamborghini's 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment, some very subtle exterior visual clues that differentiate the 2WD Spyder from the 4WD Spyder (namely, its own design of front splitter with vertical fins in the front air intakes and a rear bumper in high-gloss black with a uniquely shaped diffuser), and the usual fabric roof which can be lowered or raised in a mere 17 seconds - even if the Lambo is on the move at speeds of up to 31mph. Evo RWD Spyder buyers will enjoy 19-inch Kari alloys with Pirelli P Zero tyres, all sitting in front of cross-drilled steel brakes, as the standard equipment, but both 20-inch wheels and carbon-ceramic stoppers are options. And, if you want to condense this into a horribly glib soundbite to tell your mates down the pub (once it reopens after lockdown, that is), then the Huracan Evo RWD Spyder is basically an Audi R8 RWS crossed with its more potent Spyder performance sibling, with the resulting hardware all dressed up in a stylish Italian suit.

Sounds tasty. Any word on price?

Yes, Lamborghini is suggesting a UK figure of £151,100. Which is usefully less than the £182,000 the 4WD Evo Spyder kicked off at last year, now isn't it? Expect 335g/km of CO2 emissions and 20.3mpg combined fuel economy from this new two-wheel-drive Lamborghini, but also plenty of driving fun, as Stefano Domenicali, chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, explained: "The Huracan Evo Rear-Wheel-Drive Spyder doubles the driving fun, delivering raw driving pleasure with the opportunity to celebrate life outside. The driver is perfectly in touch with Lamborghini's engineering heritage, experiencing the feedback and engagement from the set-up of a rear-wheel-drive car where electronic intrusion is minimised, while enjoying the sense of freedom and spirit of life that only open-top driving provides."
