2017 Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2 is New Rear-Drive BALBONI! Full Tech Specs



2017 Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2

Check out the new hotness from Lambo for the LA show this week!  A rear-drive Lambo is always exciting, and this one is one of the friskiest yet: The Huracan 580.

Sprint pace is 3.4-seconds to 100-kph, which is only a tenth or so behind the standard AWD model, despite lacking all that grip from the front axle. Vmax is 320-kph and the overall package is down about 70 pounds versus the LP610-4.

580HP from the dry-sumped V10 engine in back have custom-tailored drive modes, redone for 2016 as well as for this rear-drive Huracan specifically.

Outside, the LP580-2 wears a crisp new nose and tail look. The nose has more integrated, contrast-grey intakes with air vanes leading into a main nose point. The whole hood feels pointier and sharper than the 610, with an extra crisp bit of hood flick creasing new to the shape.

Out back, more ventwork matches the latest hypercar vogue. Just the four photos so far, but watch this space for more info later in the week — including pricing and arrival timeframes. We’d guess on a March debut with pricing about $15k less than the Huracan LP610-4.

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 new looks with a package for an enhanced Lamborghini driving emotion.

“The Lamborghini Huracán LP 580-2 continues the Lamborghini tradition of pure, visionary and technology-driven models,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “The rear-wheel drive model fits perfectly into our Huracán family, appealing to those wanting an even more intense driving experience, or who currently drive other rear-wheel- drive marques and aspire to driving a Lamborghini. This is the purest expression of a Lamborghini to date, with class-leading technological refinements. It is a serious car for serious drivers: it is maximum driving fun.”

The Huracán LP 580-2 has been engineered and tuned for an essential driving experience. 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, 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 connects the driver as directly as possible with the road. The selectable Lamborghini driving modes STRADA, SPORT and CORSA are tuned to provide oversteering characteristics, emphasizing authentic rear-wheel drive behavior.2017 Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2 9 2017 Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2 10 2017 Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2 11 2017 Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2 6 2017 Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2 7 2017 Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2 8
