The Lamborghini Huracán LP 580-2 Design Upgrades
In collaboration with Lamborghini’s aerodynamic experts, the designers at Centro Stile have honed and tweaked the Huracán to produce a design that is noticeably different previous versions. 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. This rear spoiler is fixed in position.
The wheels are also new. The Huracán LP 580-2 sits on new 19” Kari wheels which enhance the dynamism of the car’s design. To envelope these rolling works of art Pirelli have developed special PZero tyres specifically for the rear wheel drive variant of the Huracán. To cap it off the brakes have been redesigned to reduce weight reduction and improved cooling.

With the reduction in tech comes a reduction in price. The new Lamborghini Huracán LP 580-2 will carry a price tag of $378,900 AUD (GST included). That’s around 100k less than it’s AWD stablemate.
