How Fast Can A Lamborghini Huracan Go On An Empty Runway?

The Lamborghini Huracan LP 580-2 may lack a manual transmission but, as Huracan variants go, it is perhaps the most involving to drive.

That’s because, unlike the rest which use four-wheel drive, the LP 580-2 (as the -2 designation indicates) sends all of its power to the rear wheels. Admittedly, it doesn’t have 602 hp like the standard model and has to make do with “only” 573 hp, but we think that, for all fits and purposes, it’s more than enough.

One Huracan LP 580-2 owner recently set out to see how fast his supercar could go at an abandoned runway. With a quick start, the Italian supercar was able to hit a top speed of 205 mph (329 km/h).

That’s interesting because, according to Lamborghini, the car tops out at 199 mph (320 km/h). It’s not uncommon for car manufacturers to underestimate the performance of their vehicles so that may explain the discrepancy. Additionally, the Huracan’s speedometer was likely a bit inaccurate at those speeds and a GPS speed reading may have shown the supercar actually topping out at a touch under the 200-mph mark.

Whatever the case may be, we can’t think of too many vehicles we’d rather do a top speed run in than the “entry-level” Lambo. For starters, it is one of the last remaining supercars powered by a naturally-aspirated engine. Whereas Lamborghini’s rival have been quick to move to forced induction, the Huracan’s V10 continues to sing without any aids. Combine that engine with striking good looks and it’s hard not to love Lamborghini’s baby supercar.
