The substantially re-engineered LP580-2 is set to arrive early next year, boasting a more modest, 571bhp version of the all-wheel-drive LP 610-4’s 602bhp 5.2 litre V10.

The car weights 1389 kg, which is 33 kgs lighter then its sibling's-this still means a 3.4-second 0-62mph speed and 199mph top speed.

Subtle visual changes all round include redesigned front air intakes to improve downward pressure on the forward axle, and fresh 19in Kari wheels shod in bespoke Pirelli P Zero tyres.

There is no manual box, unlike in previous rear-drive Lamborghinis, such as the six-speed manual Gallardo LP550-2. With the standard-fit seven-speed dual-clutch auto, the model will be the brand’s cleanest car with 23.7mpg and 278g/km of CO2 emissions. The more powerful AWD model gives out 290g/km.

An entirely new power management set-up, encompassing stiffer suspension, new steering set-up for more precise turning, and recalibrated stability and traction controls, connects the driver as directly as possible with the road. As in the other Huracán models, the LP 580-2 features cylinder deactivation to improve engine efficiency. When full engine capacity is not required, five of the 10 cylinders are temporarily deactivated by switching off one cylinder bank.
