Lamborghini's all-paw V10 supercar is set to gain a rear wheel drive variant, to be shown at the coming LA Auto Show.

The new version will be offered in strictly limited numbers as a more hard-core, track-focussed variant to sit at the top of the Huracan range, above the all wheel drive coupe, and recently launched Spyder.

Lamborghini already offers rear wheel drive LP 620-2 and GT3 variants of the Huracan, for track use, with the new car set to offer a road-registerable link to those dedicated racers.

By giving the all wheel drive system the flick, the new car will be lighter than the regular range. Expect a stripped out interior and other weight-saving measures to bring the overall weight down.

The Gallardo, predecessor to the Huracan, also offered a range of rear wheel drive variants over its model cycle, however none of those cars received a power boost over that Gallardo’s standard V10.

It’s not yet clear if Lamborghini intends to bulk up the Huracan’s 448kW V10 engine, but it is more likely to focus on performance gains gleaned by shaving the coupe’s 1420kg weight down.

What’s certain is that the manual transmission offered with the two wheel drive Gallardo won’t be making an appearance in the Huracan, with the new version set to continue with the same seven-speed dual clutch auto as the standard Huracan.

Although Lamborghini is yet to begin its teaser campaign, the newest member of the Huracan family will get its first public outing at the LA Auto Show later this month, with customer deliveries to follow next year.
