Only a few weeks after the debut of the Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 Spyder at the IAA in Frankfurt, Automobili Lamborghini SpA introduced another addition to their V10 lineup: the Huracán LP580-2.
The LP580-2 designation leaves no room for interpretation this is a rear-wheel drive version of the popular new V10 model with a slightly detuned engine that outputs 580hp (or 425 kW) to the rear wheels only for an even more exciting driving experience, or Stephan Winkelmann states: “It is a serious car for serious drivers: it is maximum driving fun”.
The Lamborghini Huracán LP580-2 puts 60% of its weight on the rear wheels; being 33 kg lighter at 1,389kg, the decrease in power is not even noticeable add the new power management system with altered suspension, different steering setup, and new stability and traction control settings driving the new LP580-2 is very different from her four-wheel drive counterpart.
Indeed, the Anima driving modes—Strada, Sport, and Corsa—have been reconfigured to include oversteer, providing a true sensation of a genuine rear-wheel drive Lamborghini. With a new front bumper and a redesigned rear section, the Huracan LP580-2 is readily distinguishable from the LP610-4 version, marking it as a unique variant in the lineup.
The larger air intakes in the front bumper actively increase downforce at speed while the modified, rising rear diffuser offers improved airflow around the back the Huracán has no need for an adjustable rear spoiler with this setup.
The Huracán LP580-2 sets itself apart from the LP610-4 model with its rear-wheel drive-only configuration, and it comes standard with new 19-inch Kari wheels fitted with Pirelli PZero tires that have been specifically developed for this rear-wheel drive Huracan. Additionally, steel brakes are included as standard, while larger 20-inch wheels and Carbon Ceramic disk brakes are available as optional upgrades.
The re-engineered 580 hp V10 engine now features a cylinder deactivation system; when not needed, a complete cylinder bank is turned off under acceleration, and all ten cylinders are again activated instantly fuel consumption of only 11.9/100km, and CO² emission of 278 g/km are impressive figures for such a high-performance supercar.
The new Lamborghini Huracán LP580-2 is now available at your local dealer and can be ordered in every shade available on the Huracán LP610-4, both inside and outside; several options are listed on the ordering system while, as usual, the Ad Personam program will try to fulfill just about every wish a customer might have.
The Lamborghini Huracán LP580-2 features a rear-wheel drive system, as indicated by the “580-2” designation. This drivetrain configuration is in contrast to the standard all-wheel drive (AWD) system found on the Huracán LP610-4.
The LP580-2 is powered by a mid-mounted naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces 580 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque. This power is sent exclusively to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

However, the LP580-2 may be less suitable for driving in wet or slippery conditions compared to the AWD variant.
