Lamborghini Huracan LP 580-2 RWD supercar introduced
The Lamborghini Huracan LP 580-2 RWD supercar has been introduced to lure customers who think the all-wheel drive Huracan is not untamed enough. The tail happy supercar incorporates quite a few tweaks to deliver a true blue rear wheel drive experience.
For starters, the latest variant gets revised setup for springs and anti-roll bars to suit RWD configuration. The vehicle is claimed to be 50% more rigid than the Gallardo LP 550-2. Lamborghini has also bestowed the two-wheel drive Huracan with LPI (Lamborghini Piattforma Inerziale), an inertial measurement unit at the centre of gravity. This sensor measures the vehicle’s roll, pitch and yaw, and relay real-time information to the steering system, stability control modules and the optional Magneto Rheological Suspension.
The 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 petrol engine is tuned to produce 580 PS and 540 Nm of torque as against the Huracan LP 610-4’s 610 PS and 560 Nm of torque. The car gallops to 100 kmph from rest in 3.2 seconds (0.2 seconds slower than the LP 610-4) and can manage a top whack of 320 kmph. The engine gets cylinder deactivation system which can shut up to 5 cylinders when not required, resulting in a fuel efficiency of 8.4 kmpl and CO2 emission of 278 g/km.
Visually, the Huracan LP 580-2 gets larger front air intakes, 19-inch Kari alloy wheels wrapped in specially formulated Pirelli P Zero rubbers and a spoiler lip at the rear. Lambo says that the Huracan LP 580-2 doesn’t require a moving rear wing.
