2016 Lamborghini Huracan LP 580-2 Review | Paramus, NJ

If you enjoy the thrill of a RWD sports car that releases your endorphins as you engage the twisties, you’ll find the 2016 Lamborghini Huracan LP 580-2 well worth waiting for. Forsaking AWD for its RWD roots, the Huracan LP 580-2 provides the optimal balance of power, agile steering and drivability in a fun-to-drive excitement machine. The ferocious yet refined V10 powerplant is mid-mounted, naturally aspirated, and delivers 571 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque to the rear tires via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic augmented by launch control. The pleasing growl of the engine as you climb through the gears announces the presence of a unique performance car.

Advanced technology harnesses and optimizes the engine’s brute power to create a one-of-a-kind driving experience. The 2016 Huracan LP 580-2 boasts of a dedicated steering setup that improves agility and specific driving mode calibration that never fails to entertain. Recalibrated traction and stability control create a direct connection between the driver and the road, while the new chassis setup includes improvements to the suspension, tires, kinematics and weight distribution, yielding a superior ride. Cylinder deactivation improves fuel economy and reduces emissions.

Performance & Interior

The impressive exterior and aluminum/carbon fiber chassis will take your breath away. The design features new bumpers front and rear, new exhaust pipes and rear grilles, contoured aluminum calipers and steel rotors, 19-inch Kari rims and Pirelli PZero tires for a remarkably aggressive shape. The aerodynamic front air intakes direct cooling air and headwind to the front axle, increasing down pressure, while the rear diffuser and spoiler tip work together to improve rear-car airflow without the need for a movable spoiler. The Lamborghini engineers in Sant’Agata Bolognese conceived of a car with style that a jet fighter pilot would find gratifying. To increase responsiveness, the 2016 Huracan tips the scales at only 3,062 pounds, 73 fewer than the previous model and producing a 5.3 lb/hp weight-to-power ratio.

The result is a rocket that goes 0 to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds and achieves a top speed of 199 mph. This is a serious car for serious drivers, the purest expression of the Lamborghini philosophy to date, with class-leading technology. To reduce front-axle inertia, Huracan LP 580-2 engineers specified a weight distribution of 40 percent up front, 60 percent in the rear. The stiffer double-wishbone suspension, new springs and new anti-roll bars contribute to precise steering through every turn. Adaptive Network Intelligent Management lets you specify driving modes of Strada, Sport or Corsa to control the exact oversteering characteristics you desire from this RWD machine, very different traits from those of the 4WD version. The optional Magneto Rheological Suspension (MRS), steering and stability control systems are optimized for RWD performance.

The Finishing Touches

The huge exterior-color range includes solids, metallics, pearl effects, and personalized colors. The Huracan LP 580-2 interior combines sports car functionality with many premium touches. A full range of interior colors and trims is available, as is the latest Lamborghini Infotainment System II, with a 12.3" high resolution TFT instrument panel.
