Lamborghini came up with a new version of the Huracán, the LP 580-2. Lamborghini comes out with a new model rarely, but this is not what I expected. The looks of the rear was horrible in the LP610-4 and has gotten worse in the LP610-2.
The naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 pushes 426kw and 540nm of torque directly to the rear wheels makes for a far more exciting ride and a proper way to Lamborghini’s roots.
It has a top speed of 320 km/h and does 0-100km/h in 3.4 seconds which is 0.2 seconds slower than the older four-wheel drive Huracan. It also has 3 Driving Modes; Strada, Sport and Corsa. The exterior has been revised with large front air intakes and a spoiler lip at rear.
The Huracán LP610-4 replaced the 10-year-old Gallardo last year. It’s more useful and technologically advanced than the Gallardo, but not nearly so wild, thanks to coddling refinements like an electronically adjustable suspension and variable-ratio steering. In a mid-engine car like the Huracán, where 60% of the weight is on the rear end, it’s far easier to slide the rear and steer with the throttle. So yes! That means you can drift the hell out of this car!
I don’t really like the rear, but the front seems to be growing on me. What do you think of the new Huracan with a base price of just R4.5 million in South Africa?
