Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2 launched for INR 3.4 crores

Automobili Lamborghini is proud to present the Lamborghini Hurac?n LP 580-2 in India, a two-wheeled drive version of the legendary Italian sportscar marques popular Hurac?n coupe.Specifically designed and engineered for its rear-wheel drive set-up, the Hurac?n LP 580-2 combines dynamic new looks with a package for an enhanced and even more intense Lamborghini driving experience. It will be priced at INR. 3.4 crore (on-road, New Delhi).

We are delighted to be unveiling the Hurac?n LP 580-2 in India within just three days of its global launch,Pavan Shetty, Head, Lamborghini India, said. We strongly believe that India has customers who enjoy intense driving with maximum fun, which the new offering will deliver seamlessly. This is the purist expression of Huracan till date with class leading technological refinements designed to deliver sheer performance.

The Hurac?n LP 580-2 has been engineered and tuned for an essential driving experience. With its naturally aspirated V10 5.2 l engine sending 580bhp to the rear axle, the Hurac?n LP 580-2s dry weight is just 1,389 kg, thus 33 kg lighter than the four-wheel-drive version.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 behaviour.

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

The Lamborghini Hurac?n LP 580-2 is clearly different from its four wheel-drive stable mate. The front and rear of the Hurac?n LP 580-2 have been redesigned, accenting a young, fresh and more assertive look and highlighting the aeronautic styling.Each design detail of the Lamborghini Hurac?n LP 580-2 celebrates the aesthetic of function; the result of a close collaboration between the Centro Stile designers and Lamborghinis aerodynamic experts. 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 Hurac?n does not require a movable rear spoiler.

The Hurac?n LP 580-2 sits on new, different-sized (front/rear) 19 Kari rims, enhancing the cars dynamic expression. Pirelli PZero tyres have been exclusively developed for the rear-wheel drive car. Steel brakes with aluminum brake disc calipers have been specially contoured for weight reduction and improved cooling.

The Hurac?ns V10 5.2-litre naturally aspirated, 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.As in the other Hurac?n models, the LP 580-2 features cylinder deactivation to improve engine efficiency. When full engine capacity is not required, five of the ten cylinders are temporarily deactivated by switching off one cylinder bank.
