Lamborghini Automobili: Huracan LP580-2

Automobili Lamborghini presents the Lamborghini Huracán LP 580-2: a two-wheel drive version of the Huracán coupe. Specifically designed and engineered for its rear-wheel drive set-up, the Huracán LP 580-2’s combines dynamic looks with a package for an enhanced Lamborghini driving emotion.

With its naturally aspirated V10 5.2 l engine sending 426 kW / 580 hp to the rear axle, the Huracán LP 580-2’s dry weight is just 1,389 kg, thus 33 kg lighter than the four-wheel-drive version.

Weight distribution is biased 40% at the front / 60% at the rear. An entirely new power management set-up, encompassing modified suspension, new steering set-up and recalibrated stability and traction controls connect the driver as directly as possible with the road.

The Lamborghini Huracán LP 580-2 is clearly different from its four wheel-drive counterpart. The front and rear of the Huracán LP 580-2 have been redesigned, creating a young, fresh and more assertive look – highlighting the aeronautic styling. Each design detail of the Lamborghini Huracán LP 580-2 celebrates the aesthetic of function; the result of a close collaboration between the Centro Stile designers and Lamborghini’s aerodynamic experts.

The large, newly formed front air intakes specifically direct the cooling air and headwind to increase down pressure on the front axle. The spoiler lip at the rear works together with the rising diffuser in the underbody to improve airflow around the rear of the car. Steel brakes with aliminium brake disc calipers have been specially contoured for weight reduction and improved cooling.

As in the other Huracán models, the LP 580-2 features cylinder deactivation to improve engine efficiency. When full engine capacity is not required, five of the ten cylinders are temporarily deactivated by switching off one cylinder bank. When the driver accelerates, the system switches back instantaneously to ten- cylinder mode, while being virtually impossible to detect by the driver. This feature reduces fuel consumption to 11.9 l/100 km and CO2 to 278 g/km.

Featuring the ANIMA (Adaptive Network Intelligent Management) button on the steering wheel, this allows the driver to adopt different driving modes. STRADA: for daily use, provides a slight understeering feedback and is traction-oriented; SPORT: is for sporty driving – fun with slight oversteering behaviour; and CORSA: ensures maximum performance in track mode, providing neutral steering behaviour.

The LP 580-2 is available in the full range of Huracán external and internal colours and trims. In addition, through Lamborghini’s personalisation program “Ad Personam”, the options for external and internal colours are limitless. The car has been confirmed at €150,000 plus tax in Europe, with UK pricing still to be confirmed.
