Lamborghini has unveiled the Huracan LP580-2 ahead of its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Designed to appeal to driving enthusiasts, the model is instantly recognizable but features modified bumpers which help to distinguish it from its four-wheel drive counterpart.  The car also has new 19-inch wheels which are equipped with Pirelli PZero tires that have been specially developed for the car.

Power is provided by a detuned 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces 580 PS (426 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque.  While it's 30 PS (22 kW) less powerful than the Huracan LP610-4, the removal of the all-drive system enables the car to weigh 33 kg (72 lbs) less than the standard model. 

Despite the weight savings, the model is slightly slower than the LP610-4 as the dash from 0-100 km/h takes 3.4 seconds and the top speed is rated at 320 km/h (198 mph).  In terms of efficiency, the car returns 11.9 L/100km (19.7 mpg US / 23.7 mpg UK) and has CO2 emissions of 278 g/km.

Speaking of performance, the Huracan LP580-2 has been equipped with a retuned suspension, an improved steering system as well as recalibrated stability and traction control systems.

Pricing starts at €150,000 which makes it significantly cheaper than the Huracan LP610-4 which retails for €169,500.
