LP 580-2

Purist two-wheel drive supercar joins the Huracán family

At first glance, the new Lamborghini LP 580-2 is a little lighter and marginally less powerful than its stablemate, the LP 610-4. But the real significance comes in that final number 2.

This means that it’s a two-wheel drive supercar that – in the right hands and circumstances – offers the opportunity to exploit what Lamborghini calls ‘authentic rear-wheel drive behaviour’. In short, a Lamborghini for the skilful – and the confident.

Overview

LP 580-2

Supercar aficionados and Lamborghini lovers will notice a few visual clues to the latest Huracán’s different character. The front end features revised air intakes to increase down pressure on the front axle, while at the rear the spoiler and rising diffuser improve airflow and eliminate the need for a movable rear spoiler. The look is clean, fresh and assertive.

Other external differences include the new 19" Kari alloy wheels, shod with Pirelli P-Zero tyres that have been specially developed for this rear-drive Huracán. Inside there’s little change, and that’s a good thing. It’s the same cossetting combination of Nappa leather and Alcantara™, with the ANIMA selectable drive mode button on the steering wheel and a clear 12.3-inch TFT full-colour instrument panel for all information from navigation to rpm.

Technology

LP 580-2

Like its Huracán stablemates, the LP 580-2 5.2-litre V10 engine features cylinder deactivation under light throttle loads to reduce emissions and increase fuel efficiency. It develops 580hp and 480Nm of torque, driving through a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox. Yes, it’s a lower power output than the Huracán LP 610-4 – but all that power is transmitted through two rear wheels. 0-62mph comes up in just 3.4 seconds and top speed is 199mph. The four-wheel drive LP 610-4 is fractionally quicker but for two-wheel drive purists these differences are irrelevant; it’s not what you do, it’s the way that you do it.

Weight distribution is biased 40:60 to the rear and the overall weight saving is 33kg. Power management, steering, suspension are all specially tailored to the LP 580-2’s two-wheel drive characteristics, as is the stability and traction control system. The Huracán’s LPI sensor system in the centre of gravity provides real-time information and if the optional Magneto Rheological Suspension (MRS) is chosen, the poise, feedback and response verge on the telepathic.

Lamborghini’s selectable drive modes STRADA, SPORT and CORSA are all tuned to deliver varying levels of oversteer for would-be drift heroes. As Lamborghini’s own press release puts it, this is ‘a serious car for serious drivers’. And guaranteed to put a smile on their faces.
