Lamborghini goes RWD with lightweight, redesigned Huracán LP 580-2

LOS ANGELES -- This is the brand-new Lamborghini Huracán LP 580-2, a rear-wheel-drive version of the company's epic supercar.

The normal Huracán features all-wheel drive to put its 602 horsepower to the ground. But, by going RWD, the new 580-2 will make for a more enjoyable drive.

The 580 stands for 580 metric horsepower, which equates to 572 in old-world numbers.

The lack of the AWD system means the car weighs 72 pounds less than normal, and it carries a 40/60 front/rear weight split.

The car has also been subtly restyled to accentuate its RWD nature.

There's a 12.3-inch virtual dashboard inside, which includes normal stuff, like engine revs and speed, and can also do full-screen navigation.
