Shortly after the unveil of the Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 Spyder at the IAA in Frankfurt only a few weeks ago Automobili Lamborghini SpA releases yet another evolution in their V10 line up ... the Lamborghini Huracán LP580-2.
The LP580-2 designation leaves no room for interpretation ... this is a rear wheel drive version of the popular new V10 model with a slightly detuned engine that outputs 580hp (or 425 kW) to the rear wheels only for an even more exciting driving experience ... or as Stephan Winkelmann states : "It is a serious car for serious drivers: it is maximum driving fun"
The Lamborghini Huracán LP580-2 puts 60% of her weight on the rear wheels, being 33 kg lighter at 1,389kg the decrease in power is not even noticeable ... add the new power management system with altered suspension, different steering setup and new stability and traction control settings driving the new LP580-2 is very different from her four wheel drive counterpart.
In fact the Anima driving modes Strada, Sport and Corsa have been reprogrammed to have oversteer so you really get the feeling of a genuine rear wheel drive Lamborghini, with the new front bumper and redesigned rear section the new Huracan LP580-2 is quickly recognized as being different from the LP610-4 version.
The larger air intakes in the front bumper actively increase downforce at speed while the modified, rising rear diffuser offers improved air flow around the back ... the Huracán has no need for an adjustable rear spoiler with this setup.
To further distinguish the Huracán LP580-2 from the LP610-4 model the rear wheel drive only model comes standard with new Kari wheels in a smaller 19-inch format with Pirelli PZero tires that have been developed specifically for this rear wheel drive Huracan ... which has steel brakes as standard fitment, the larger 20-inch wheels and Carbon Ceramic disk brakes are available as an option however.
The re-engineered 580 hp V10 engine now features a cylinder deactivation system, when not needed a complete cylinder bank is turned off ... under acceleration all ten cylinders are again activated instantly ... fuel consumption of only 11.9/100km and CO² emission of 278 g/km are impressive figures for such a high performance super car.
