If you had concerns about the RWD Huracan not being tail-happy, Lamborghini’s newest promo clip comes to prove its latest creation likes to be drifted.

If you had concerns about the RWD Huracan not being tail-happy, Lamborghini’s newest promo clip comes to prove its latest creation likes to be drifted.

The video was shot at Imola in Italy with a lovely Nero Serapis example going sideways and looking good while doing it. Lamborghini mentions its LP 580-2 brings “enjoyable technology” as switching to a RWD layout makes the Huracan more fun and also substantially cheaper than the all-paw model. It’s down on power by 30 hp compared to the LP 610-4, but on the other hand it is 72 lbs (33 kg) lighter.

There are other differences between the two models as the engineers also fiddled with the car’s steering, suspension, as well as with the stability and traction control systems. It was all done to make the driver feel even more connected to the car and perhaps the only thing missing is a manual transmission.

It remains to be seen whether sales of the LP 610-4 will be affected by the 580-2’s arrival. Probably not, because the two versions target different customers, so there’s no reason why the two can’t coexist peacefully. A more hardcore iteration of the RWD model is on the agenda and it is expected to bring more power along with other upgraded hardware.
