New Cars 2016: Lamborghini



Lambo’s smallest baby the LP580-2 gets the rear-wheel drive treatment, while the LP610-4 Spyder goes topless in 2016

What: Huracan LP580-2
When: Q1 2016
How much: $838,000 (without COE and options)

This is the newest version of Lambo’s supercar, the Huracan. You’ll be scratching your head if you’re trying to play ‘spot the difference’ with the car’s exterior. The clue is in the name; the “2” indicates that the power goes only to the rear wheels. Like the Gallardo ‘Balboni Edition’, this is a more focused, tail-happy version of the smallest Lambo. It’s 33kg lighter and marginally slower to 100km/h (3.4 seconds, the horror) but what you gain overall is a more manic experience from behind the wheel, more grins and a large tyre bill.

What: Huracan LP610-4 Spyder
When: Q2 2016
How much: $1,098,000 (without COE and options)

A naturally-aspirated V10 engine powers the Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder. It produces 610 horsepower, can race from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.4 seconds and has a top speed of 324km/h. With the top down, the rear deck lid features two long fins that stretch from right behind the passenger compartment to the rear fascia, a styling cue that helps differentiate the Spyder from its coupe counterpart.
