Most of the external elements have been taken from its all-wheel drive complement, but the front part will be designed in a unique way. The complete bumper section in the front fraction has been revamped. The new-fangled vehicle also comes equipped with restyled air intakes to offer it a contemporary and distinctive front appearance. The front part comes equipped with a three-part grille design with a taller middle segment, rather than the two-part grille with honeycomb web on the sides of the LP 610-4.

An utterly groundbreaking power management arrangement, including pioneering steering system for more exact turning, firmer suspension, and standardized firmness and grip controls, connects the driver as reliable as possible with the road. The optional driving modes, such as CORSA, STRADA and SPORT are fine-tuned to offer oversteering characteristics, stressing genuine back-wheel drive performance.
