Lamborghini made proper use of this year Los Angeles Motor Show by introducing a cheaper and more softer Huracan. Called the Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2, the model is a version of the Huracan coupe, specifically designed and engineered for its rear-wheel drive set-up.
It has the same naturally aspirated V10 5.2 liters engine sending 580 hp to the rear axle. Thanks to this configuration, the Huracan 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, reducing inertia on the front axle. An entirely new power management set-up, encompassing modified suspension, new steering set-up and recalibrated stability and traction controls are all there.
The front and rear of the Huracan LP 580-2 have been redesigned. 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. This way, the Huracan does not require a movable rear spoiler.
Inside, the Huracan LP 580-2 is fitted with the latest Lamborghini Infotainment System II, with a 12.3 inch high resolution TFT instrument panel.
