After unveiling the new Huracan LP 580-2 at Los Angeles auto show, the Italian supercar maker has apparently launched it in India. Priced at Rs. 2.99 Crore (ex-showroom Delhi), it is based on two wheel version of Huracan Coupe. The USP of new model is that it comes with a RWD setup specially re-engineered to deliver two-wheel drive performance to appeal driving enthusiasts. The supercar has been launched at the Buddha International Circuit (BIS), nation’s only F-One race track.
The car is 33khg lighter than the previous version due to emission of AWD system but it is powered by the same 5.2-liter V10 engine which has been detuned to produce 580 PS as compared to 610 PS of standard Huracan. The RWD version belts out massive 540Nm of peak torque. The engine comes paired with a 7-speed DCT gearbox transmission along with launch control for better acceleration. The car is equipped with three driving modes-Sport Corsa and Strada.
If you think light weight technology has made it quicker than you need to re-think again as the car become tad slower. A sprint of 0-100 km/h now takes 3.4 seconds slower by 0.2 seconds and the top speed of 320 km/hr.
To differentiate it from the standard model, Lamborghini has modified front bumpers and the car now flaunts larger air intakes and revised rear spoiler. The ravishing Huracan sits on 19 inch Pirelli PZero tyres designed especially for the car.
Even on inside, you will get déjà Vu kind of feel as the new model gets almost all the equipment list of standard model including range of color and trim choices with company’s personalization program. For entertainment, you get Lamborghini infotainment system with 12.3 inch HD screen.
The new Lamborghini Huracan LP 580-2 will be sold alongside Aventador and Huracan series in the Indian market.
