Fun to drive: Lamborghini Huracán LP 580-2 review


In the world of fast cars, there are a couple that normally stand out and pop up in your mind. More specifically, a particular Italian luxury sports car may begin to ring a bell. The Lamborghini Huracán combines fun, fast driving with complete and total vehicle control. Whether you prefer to hit the pedal to the metal, or drift around bends and corners, this car is one to provide a full-force exhilarating experience. The Huracán is the perfect example of high-tech vehicles combined with old-school sports driving simplicity. Lamborghini is known for its loyal customer base and quality of speed, performance and control. They fell far from short when delivering the Huracán 580-2.


First of all, if you are looking into the Italian Lamborghini, then you are probably looking for something fast, sexy and sleek with top of the line luxury features. The Huracán is a novelty vehicle that combines power, danger and sex appeal all rolled into one aluminum speed machine.


There are several features that make this car the exquisite machine that it is. The vehicle features an ANIMA system (Adaptive Network Intelligence Management) which allows the driver to adjust the behavior of the car to their specific driving needs. Drifters and thrill-seekers will enjoy the oversteer behavior available through the SPORT setting. The CORSA setting offers the perfect driving environment for race driving. STRADA settings allow you to drive comfortably with a close grip for day-to-day traveling. With the new Huracán 580-2, there is something to accommodate almost any driver.


It’s no surprise that this model is also easy on the eyes. Lamborghini has reinvented its sleek signature look. This design was focused on aerodynamic designs to keep the fast drivers satisfied with its ability to cut through the air. The exterior features new front and new rear bumpers. It also has newly styled exhaust pipes, rear grills and 19 inch rims. This design is not for the modest. The removal of the front-driven axle from the LP 610-4 model has removed almost 73 pounds from the tip. This also results in a two-percent shift in weight distribution towards the rear end of the car.


The interior is still super sexy and sleek, while remaining ergonomic and functional. Both the coupe and the convertible are hot commodities. The featured “infotainment” system combines state-of-the-art technology with comfort to better meet all of your needs while driving. Not to mention the endless color and style combinations that is available with this model.


A couple of other key bells and whistles will raise the ears of some of the most knowledgeable luxury car connoisseurs. The car offers two great features for different styles of driving. The V-10 engine provides the power and acceleration drivers love, while technologies like the Lamborghini Double Clutch (AKA Lamborghini Doppia Frizione – LDF) transmission with seven-speed and rear wheel drive provide the performance that leads to driving pleasure.


The three main features have been tweaked and cleaned for top-notch performance. The steering system has been enhanced to provide more sensitivity at low speeds and less direct sensitivity at high speeds. The electromechanical power steering (EPS) has the capability of adapting to almost any driving condition. The biggest plus for this new steering system is that it does not require the typical maintenance of the standard hydraulic power steering. A carbon fiber and aluminum chassis are both lightweight and high-performance. Suspension is reinforced by the Huracán’s double wishbone architecture that creates balance and performance. The vehicle comes with the optional magnetorhelogical shock absorber system is designed based around three key factors: driving style, road conditions and the selected driving mode.


The point of this model is to be more fun but less expensive for the driver. The car has been tested and clocked at around 3.3 seconds for 0 mph to 60 mph. Its top speed reaches a bone chilling 199 mph. Although no one buys a Lamborghini to be gas efficient, the car does average around 19 miles per gallon. Bringing just about anything a car lover needs, the Lamborghini Huracán 580-2 is one of the sweetest rides on the ground.
