After an announcement made more than a month ago, the Lamborghini Huracan Spyder has now returned in a teaser which also discloses the model’s reveal date: September 15. The company headquartered in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy will stage the world premiere of its roofless Huracan at the Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany before opening the order books.
It doesn’t take a lot of imagination to figure out how the car will look like as most of the body design will be carried over from the coupe, with the exception of the fixed metal roof which will be replaced by an electrically retractable folding top in the same vein as its predecessor, the Gallardo Spyder.
The model will obviously use the same 5.2-liter V10 naturally aspirated engine pushing out 610 bhp and a maximum torque of 560 Nm channeled to an all-wheel drive system with help from a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
We are curious to find out whether the increased weight due to the higher complexity of the roof will have a negative effect on the car’s performances or Lamborghini’s engineers has worked their magic and managed to keep the weight gain down to a minimum. It should be mentioned the Huracan Coupe covers the 0-100 kmph sprint in as little as 3.2 seconds and tops out at more than 325 kmph.
Deliveries of the model are likely programmed to commence early next year in Europe, with other countries to get the car later in 2016. We don’t know at this point if Lamborghini has plans to bring it to India, but if they do, the price tag will obviously be significantly higher compared to the coupe which kicks off at 3.43 Cr (ex-showroom price).
We won’t be too surprised if Lamborghini will decide to reveal the Huracan Spyder online in the coming days before showing it off at IAA in Frankfurt next week.
