The Lamborghini Huracán Evo RWD Spyder wins ‘best convertible’ in Robb Report Singapore’s Best of the Best 2021 awards

Lamborghini Huracán Evo RWD Spyder

In this year’s Best of the Best, we continue to honour the brands and people who have continued to create covetable products, even in the midst of a global pandemic. Here, we have the Lamborghini Huracán Evo RWD Spyder, the best convertible in our books

Lamborghini has long endured a reputation for power at the expense of sophistication – the very ethos of its Raging Bull logo. But that perception has become as outdated as a Diablo poster. Take the all-wheel-drive Huracán Evo, introduced two years ago, featuring a super-processor brain enabling predictive vehicle response. It was the automotive equivalent of a Massachusetts Institute of Technology graduate with finishing-school refinement and Olympic-level athletics.

Now the 602hp Evo RWD Spyder offers that same bleeding-edge control and performance, but gives drivers room to open up – literally. In the rear-wheel-drive configuration, torque-vectoring is replaced by the new Performance Traction Control System, which enables drifting in Sport mode. The feature will use a dose of torque to boost grip when transitioning from a drift or turn. We had the chance to test the feature in the coupe version by momentarily losing the back end during a run around Willow Springs International Raceway, at which point the system intervened and smoothly corrected the mistake.

With a 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10, it can lunge from zero to 100km/h in 3.5 seconds and to a top speed of 324km/hr. If that sounds familiar, it’s because the Evo RWD Spyder was also named 2021’s Robb Report Sports Car of the Year. Not surprising for a supercar convertible you can slide around without slipping up.
