2016 Lamborghini Huracán LP 580-2: Why The Rear-Drive Lambo Is the Better Lambo! [Ignition - Episode 166]

@ May 15, 2017

The “-2” in the Lambo’s name signifies this episode of Ignition, will be filled with sideways tire smoke. And Skittles. Why? Because supercars are candy. They look appetizing and taste great but offer no real nutrition. So why would you ever need all-wheel drive?

Disconnecting the front driveshafts turns the Huracán into a drift machine and cleans up its understeer-y handling.

Motor Trend Senior Features Editor Jason Cammisa takes a Mantis green LP 580-2 over the river, through the woods, and through a cloud of Skittle smoke onto the Club Motorsports course, one of the newest racetracks in America. Listen as its 571hp, naturally aspirated V-10 screams, and watch as its rear tires try to cope with the power. And, more important, learn why in the case of this Lamborghini, rear-wheel drive is better than all-wheel drive.
