The new Huracán LP 580-2 is a lightweight and is the rear-wheel drive version of the Huracán LP 610-4. The innovative model was revealed at an exclusive event off-site from the glitzy LA Motor Show in November.
The lightweight supercar will benefit from stiffer suspension and better torsional rigidity than its predecessor and the de-tuned 5.2-litre V10 engine will be naturally aspirated. Seventy-five percent of the engine’s 540Nm of torque is available from just 1,000rpm.
The rear-wheel drive model will develop 572bhp and race from zero to 60mph in just over three seconds, marginally slower than the four-wheel drive car. The top speed of the LP 580-2 is 199mph and the top speed of the LP 610-4 is 202mph.
The driving modes have been re-calibrated for the LP 580-2, playing to the strengths of the car’s authentic rear-wheel drive behaviour. These are accessed with a simple button on the steering wheel, giving the driver complete control over the driving experience.
CO2 emissions are much lower in the rear-wheel drive Huracán, and are as low as 278g/km compared to the 290g/km emitted by the four-wheel drive model. This is assisted by the cylinder-deactivation technology, which is fitted as standard and shuts down half of the engine’s cylinders when they are not needed.
