A new report indicates Lamborghini has plans to display a more hardcore Huracan with a RWD layout later this month at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Earlier this year Lamborghini chief test driver Giorgio Sanna said the Huracan will have not one, but two rear-wheel drive versions and now we are hearing one of them will be unveiled in a couple of weeks in L.A. There aren’t any details at this point, but most likely the RWD layout will bring a weight loss compared to the all-paw Huracan which tips the scales at 1,422 kg (3,135 lb).

There could also be a slight bump in output beyond the current 610 PS (449 kW) and 560 Nm (412 lb-ft) generated by the V10 5.2-liter naturally aspirated engine shared with the second generation Audi R8.

A more aggressive body to go with the added punch is probably on the agenda as well and according to the report Lamborghini could sell this as a special edition Huracan in limited numbers with a price to match its exclusivity and upgrades over the regular variant. The recently introduced Huracan Spyder will likely benefit from the same treatment sometime in 2016 and will be more expensive.

As for the other rear-wheel drive Huracan mentioned by Giorgio Sanna, it could be an LP 610-2, so basically a standard Huracan with RWD. Perhaps it makes more sense that Lamborghini will unveil this one first and wait a bit before introducing the beefier version. We will know this for sure on November 17 when the Los Angeles Auto Show will open its doors to the press.
