The bull pushes now from behind

Los Angeles, 18th November 2015

Lamborghini presented at the LA Auto Show ( 20 to 29 November 2015) the Huracán LP 580-2. This is the rear-wheel drive version of the closed Huracán, which now goes into series production. The new model does not come as a surprise: Already in 2014 had Lamborghini boss Stephan Winkelmann hinted that there could be such a variant also street legal ?? Finally sets the GT cars Huracán GT3 already on the pure rear-wheel drive.

30 hp less than the LP 610-4

Potential customers can be seen at Lamborghini especially switching from rear-wheel drive vehicles of other brands. The LP 580-2 is purely designed for purist driving pleasure, explained Winkelmann. Compared to the 610 hp LP 610-4 with wheel drive system, the new slightly less power: The 5.2-liter normally aspirated V10 engine brings 580 horsepower to the rear axle. However, the Bolide is easier with a dry weight of 1389 kg and 33 kg. The distribution is 40 percent front and 60 percent rear ?? which relieves the front axle and is intended to give a better sense of the street. Furthermore, dampers and steering were retuned. The stability and traction control have been geared more toward the oversteer, to emphasize the tail drive behavior.

Anders styled

Visually, the LP 580-2 differs slightly from the four-wheel drive. This is mainly for aerodynamic reasons: The newly formed air intakes in the front bumper lead the wind to increase targeted on the front axle downforce. A spoiler lip at the rear allows, together with the rising diffuser improved flow around the stern. This does not require the Huracán movable rear spoiler. Even the wheels has been adjusted: The rear bull stands on new 19 - inch wheels that are covered with specially developed Pirelli PZero - tires ( front 245, rear 305er ). The steel brakes with aluminum calipers were in favor of weight reduction and improved cooling specially contoured. A new kinematics on the rear axle is to optimize the balance of the vehicle additionally.

From 178,500 euros

The Huracán LP 580-2 accelerates in 3.4 seconds from zero to 100 and 320 km / h. The differences from the four-wheel drive model are but moderate: The LP 610-4 takes 3.2 seconds and keeps running to 325 km / h. In price there is a bit more air between the numbers: With 178,500 euros of Hecktriebler over 23,000 euros is cheaper than the all-wheel racing car, thus currently the cheapest Lamborghini . ( hd )
