An open-top version of the new Lamborghini Huracán is due to arrive in 2015
The Gallardo was available in limited-edition rear-wheel drive LP550-2 Balboni form
Speaking at the Pebble Beach Concours event, which also saw the unveiling of the firm's new Super Trofeo racer, Winkelmann said: “We did it with the Gallardo so it might be an option. We are a four-wheel-drive super-sports car [manufacturer] but why should we not do a rear-drive option?”
Winkelmann also hinted that other derivatives of the Huracán could be on the way. “We need lots of derivatives. Customers expect it and we always need something new to talk about,” he said.
An open-top Spyder version of the Huracán is expected in 2015 and it’s likely that more extreme, lighter versions will also eventually be sold. The Gallardo was available in faster, lighter form as the Superleggera and as the rear-drive LP550-2 Balboni.
Just 250 examples of the Balboni were offered - a pattern Lamborghini would likely stick to for the new rear-drive Huracán.
While the two-wheel drive Gallardo was priced to be around ten per cent less expensive than the standard car, the same is not likely to be true of the special-edition Huracán. The standard car is priced from £180,720 in the UK.
