The long awaited Huracan Spyder is a fresh update in the Lamborghini stables, and has been blessed with an electrohydraulic cloth soft top that opens in a mere 17 seconds. With the top down, the rear deck features two long fins that give the Spyder a distinct look, separating it from its hard top cousin. The standard Huracan lacked that crazy Lamborghini charm but this soft top model is a different animal. Built out of a weight-saving combination of aluminum and carbon fiber, the Huracán Spyder’s chassis is 40% stiffer than that of the Gallardo Spyder, its predecessor. A fully flat underbody and a large air diffuser built into the rear bumper highlight the efforts that Lamborghini went through to make its newest convertible as aerodynamic as possible.
The Spyder’s interior is very similar to the coupe and features innovative ducts that reduce air turbulence within the cockpit. Another interesting feature borrowed from the Aventador Spyder is that the rear window can be opened to let the symphony of the mad V10 motor into the cabin. Speaking about the hand built naturally-aspirated 5.2 litre V10, the motor remains the same as the coupe and produces 602 BHP, shooting the Spyder from 0-100 in 3.4 seconds, which is a bit slower than its coupe cousin. Power is delivered to an all new four wheel drive system via a seven-speed dual clutch transmission.
Customization was high on Lamborghini’s list of priorities. The top can be ordered in black, brown or red, and the panel right above the windshield can be either left with the Huracán emblem or personalized. Additionally, buyers can choose from a palette of eleven paint colors and from several alloy wheel designs.
The Lamborghini Huracan Spyder should go on sale very soon and prices would be around $210,000. Expect this topless beauty to hit the Indian shores a few months after its international launch.
