Lamborghini Huracán LP 580-2 rear wheel drive launched in India at INR 2.99 cr

New Delhi, 20 November 2015: The two-wheeled drive version of the legendary Huracán coupe, the Lamborghini Huracán LP 580-2 was launched in India today, within just three days of its global launch.

Specifically designed and engineered for its rear-wheel drive set-up, the Huracán LP 580-2 combines dynamic new looks with a package for an enhanced and even more intense Lamborghini driving experience. It is priced at INR 2.99 cr (ex-showroom Delhi).


The Huracán LP 580-2 has been engineered and tuned for an unmatched 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, 33 kg lighter than the four-wheel-drive version. It achieves a weight to power ratio of just 2.4 kg/hp and uses the Huracán’s hybrid aluminum and carbon fiber chassis, contributing to the lower weight.

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.

The engaging, sporty fun of the two-wheel drive Huracán LP 580-2 perfectly complements the existing Huracán offering with the all-encompassing technology and experience of the four wheel-drive Huracán LP 610-4 and the lifestyle appeal of the Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder.

The front and rear of the Huracán LP 580-2 have been redesigned, accenting a young, fresh and more assertive look and highlighting the aeronautic styling. The large, newly formed front air intakes specifically direct the cooling air and headwind to increase down pressure on the front axle. The spoiler lip at the rear works together with the rising diffuser in the underbody to improve airflow around the rear of the car.

The Huracán LP 580-2 sits on new, different-sized (front/rear) 19” Kari rims with exclusively developed Pirelli PZero tyres. Steel brakes with aluminum brake disc calipers have been specially contoured for weight reduction and improved cooling.

The Huracán’s V10 5.2 l mid-mounted engine has been reengineered to provide a maximum 426 kW (580 hp) power output and 540 Nm of torque, with 75% of torque already available at 1,000 rpm. The LP 580-2 features cylinder deactivation to improve engine efficiency.

With a new setup for springs and anti-roll bars on double wishbone suspension, torsional stiffness of the Huracán LP 580-2 is improved by 50% compared to the Gallardo LP 550-2.

The Lamborghini Doppia Frizione (LDF) seven-speed dual clutch architecture ensures the fastest gear changes and includes ‘launch control’ for maximum acceleration from a standing start. The electronic power steering and optional Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) have been tuned to improve the car’s agility and controllability in every driving condition, depending on driving mode and speed. New rear kinematics heighten the car’s ‘centered’ feeling.

The Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI) – the Huracán’s sensor system placed in the center of gravity of the car, tracing all 3D movements – has also been implemented in the rear-wheel drive version. It provides real time information to the optional Magneto Rheological Suspension (MRS), steering and stability control systems: the ESC has been regulated to adapt to all adherence conditions yet emphasize the rear-wheel drive behavior in each driving mode.

The ANIMA (Adaptive Network Intelligent Management: ‘soul’ in Italian) button on the steering wheel allows the driver to adopt different driving modes, recalibrated to suit the spirit of the rear-wheel drive model. STRADA, for daily use, provides a slight understeering feedback and is traction-oriented; SPORT, is for sporty and emotional driving fun with slight oversteering behavior; and CORSA, ensures maximum performance in track mode, providing a neutral steering behavior.

The LP 580-2 is available in the full range of Huracán external and internal colors and trims. In addition, through Lamborghini’s personalization program Ad Personam, the options for external and internal colors are limitless. The Huracán LP 580-2 is fitted with the latest Lamborghini Infotainment System II, with a 12.3” high resolution TFT instrument panel.
