Lamborghini Rules Out RWD Aventador and Urus Models


Lamborghini has ruled out the idea of producing a rear-wheel-drive Aventador.

That means the Aventador won’t follow in the footsteps of the Huracan, which recently debuted its rear-wheel-drive variant in Los Angeles. The Italian automaker insists that the Aventador has too much power for rear-wheel drive (tell that to Dodge) and the exotic must remain all-wheel drive because “only with four driven wheels are you able to manage this,” meaning 690 horsepower and 507 pound-feet of torque. The confirmation comes from research and development director Maurizio Reggiani, who added that it’s mainly due to the state-of-the-art control systems in the Aventador.

As for the Huracan, Reggiani claims that from the beginning of its development, Lamborghini looked at computer simulations and decided that two-wheel drive was a possibility from the get-go.

Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann also believes that a rear-wheel-drive Urus is out of the question, saying that taking away the SUV’s all-wheel drive would make it a “lookalike” 4×4 that wouldn’t have off-road capability the Urus is expected to have.
