You don’t need any extra reasons to want to drive a new Lamborghini. If a car is a Lamborghini, a true Italian sports car handmade in Sant’Agata Bolognese, that is reason enough.
Even so, the new Huracán LP 580-2 is here to tempt you further. Let’s look over this magnificent coupe to see if we can exhaust the other two reasons you need to take this bull by the horns.
Reason #2: A Rear-Wheel Drive Lamborghini
A Lamborghini is an expression of pure emotion, and the Huracán is a force of nature unleashed upon the road. It takes a driver with real afición to tame a car like this, and that’s with all-wheel drive.
The LP 580-2 is another step up.
Long have we waited for a rear-wheel drive Huracán. It is a car destined to be loved by adherents and aspirants. This isn’t the first rear-wheel drive Lamborghini to sing its song on the road, but for many drivers, it will be.
Just like the LP 610-4, a naturally aspirated 5.2L V10 engine serves as the beating heart of this Huracán. It is the eye of the storm, churning out 580 horsepower and sending all of it to the rear axle.
As if that wasn’t enough, selectable driving modes allow the driver to find the perfect level of oversteer for optimal cornering. The LP 580-2 is also a full 72 lbs. lighter than its siblings, with weight distribution biased 40% to the front, 60% to the rear.
Reason #3: Lamborghini Huracán Features Industry-Defining Technology
The LP 580-2 might have been re-engineered to accommodate a RWD system, but it has not sacrificed any of the technology that defines Lamborghini. The ANIMA (Adaptive Network Intelligent Management) button mentioned above effortlessly changes between three different drive modes: STRADA, SPORT, and CORSA. What you choose depends on who you are and how you use a car like this one.
At the core of the Huracán lies the Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI). This advanced sensor system monitors the car’s movements and sends feedback to adjust steering control, Electronic Stability Control, and the optional Magneto Rheological Suspension.
Every Lamborghini is a driver’s car, but the Huracán LP 580-2 is a sports car you need to know you’re ready for. With an MSRP starting below $200,000, it will be attainable for many more buyers. Lamborghini North Los Angeles is expecting the arrival of their first two by the end of February 2016.
Relive the moment!
