The Gallardo was discontinued in 2014, and its replacement, the Huracan, proved to be a worthy successor to a very accomplished model. The Lamborghini Huracan retained the same architecture, engine position, and all-wheel-drive layout. However, seeking an even more pure driving feel, Lamborghini’s engineers introduced the LP580-2, which has a rear-wheel drive and offers more engagement and a more direct experience.

The LP580-2 has a mid-mounted, odd-firing 5.2-liter V10 engine with 572 hp and 393 lb-ft of torque. With 0 to 60 mph time in 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 198 mph, Huracan LP580-2 is clearly amongst the fastest cars from Santa Agata. However, the numbers are only half of the story. The other half is the driving sensation and the fact that this rear-wheel-drive model is somewhat lighter than the standard AWD Huracan, which makes it more dynamic and engaging.
Lamborghini knew that the Huracan LP580-2 would be a preferred choice for the track car, so it gave this model a series of subtle exterior differences, amongst which are the bigger air vents in the back for improved brake cooling, an essential feature for every keen track driver. The experience is enhanced by lightning-fast 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, the same one used in the rest of the Huracan range.
