Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2 01

As promised, Lamborghini has unveiled the new Huracan LP580-2 ahead of its debut at the upcoming LA Auto Show. Like the Gallardo LP550-2 that came before it, the latest Sant’Agata Bolognese supercar brings slightly less power than the regular model as well as rear-wheel-drive configuration.

As the moniker evidently suggests, the Huracan is blessed with 571 hp (580 PS) and 540 Nm of torque from its naturally-aspirated 5.2-litre V10 engine. It’s interesting to note that while it is being pitched as a ‘purist’ car, the Huracan LP580-2 is only offered with the proven seven-speed dual clutch gearbox.

As far as performance goes, the supercar can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds – up 0.2 seconds compared to the all-wheel-drive Huracan – before hitting the 320 km/h top speed.

Without the all-wheel-drive system, the Huracan LP580-2 tips the scale at 1,389 kg – 33 kg less than the regular model. The torsional stiffness is up by 50 percent over the Gallardo LP550-2, while weight distribution is biased 40 percent at the front and 60 percent at the rear to reduce front-axle inertia. The car is also more tail-happy than before thanks to retuned driving programmes.

As for looks, the Huracan LP580-2 gets slightly a retouched front bumper with new air intakes and new a spoiler lip on the rear diffuser. The car rolls on new, different-sized 19-inch rims wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tyres. No carbon ceramic disc here as braking duties are passed on to a set of steel rotors and aluminium calipers.
