Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2 Spyder: RWD Spyder Fully Revealed in "Spyshots"

Now that the Huracan is no longer "the newcomer," having fully settled in our hearts and showrooms, the time has come for Lamborghini to be Lamborghini and continue to throw special editions at us.

Lamborghini engineers are hard at work completing the testing of the Huracan LP580-2 Spyder these days, as you can see in the image above. The pic, which comes from the Lambo-obsessed aficionados over at the huracantalk forum, shows the rear-wheel-drive, open-top V10 supercar testing in the proximity of the factory in Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy.

The most important clue pointing to the less-than-AWD nature of the machine is the nose of the supercar, which comes straight from the LP580-2 Coupe - with the supercar builder having released both this and the Spyder version of the Huracan, what we have here is basically an overlap of the two. And given the fact that the test car is fully naked, you can hardly call the pictures we have here spyshots.

Since history repeats itself, it's enough to remember the Gallardo special edition family tree when discussing most future Huracans - we're sure Lamborghini is packing at least a few surprises for the mid-term future, though. With the Huracan's predecessor, the Balboni limited edition kickstarted the RWD adventure back in 2009.

Once the company's most famous testing driver, who is now retired, lent his name to the model, the demand boomed (in terms of the supercar world). One thing led to another and Lambo offered both Coupe and Spyder Gallardo LP550-2 models.

As much as we love sliding an RWD supercar, we're not 100 percent thrilled when it comes to the Huracan losing its front axle traction. And that's because Lamborghini's RWD technology isn't quite as sharp as Ferrari's F1-inspired or McLaren's electronics-dictated setups. Then again, we're here for the show of it and we're certain the Huracan LP580-2 Spyder will deliver quite a spectacle.
