It was only last week when we heard the Lamborghini Huracan Spyder will be showcased in March next year at the Geneva Motor Show, but now it seems that won’t be the case as a company official has announced the model will be introduced much sooner than that. It will be exhibited at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show set for the middle of September, but most likely an online reveal will take place before the end of this month to build up hype until the proper introduction in Germany.
This decision to show the Spyder earlier than originally estimated makes sense taking into account the Huracan Coupe has been on sale for quite some time and now it’s just about ready to lose the fixed metal roof in order to receive an electrically retractable top. This will be the most obvious difference between the two while the body will remain largely intact, although the rear end could suffer some modifications due to the redesigned roof.
Needless to say, the Lamborghini Huracan Spyder will use the same naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine pushing out 610 bhp and a maximum torque of 560 Nm. Output is going to be channeled to both axles with help from a dual clutch seven-speed automatic gearbox coupled to the supercar’s all-wheel drive system. Due to the slightly increased weight commanded by the more complex roof, the Spyder will likely be a tad slower than the coupe which needs 3.2 seconds until 100 kmph while top speed is likely to decrease a bit from 325 kmph.
Following its official introduction at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the open-top Huracan should go on sale in Europe before the end of the year and will likely be heading to India sometime in 2016 at a price tag significantly higher than the coupe which in our country begins at 3.43 Cr (ex-showroom price).
