After releasing several teasers, Lamborghini is finally showing us the highly anticipated Huracan Spyder which debuts today at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Needless to say, it adopts most of the coupe’s design but instead of a fixed metal roof it features a new electrohydraulic soft top that can be operated at speeds of up to 50 kmph. It takes 17 seconds to fully open or close and can be ordered in black, red or brown.
Interestingly, the driver will have the possibility of opening the rear windows regardless if the top is up or down while the built-in duct is going to diminish headroom turbulence whenever driving with the roof folded down. Moreover, the Huracan Spyder has two removable lateral wind guards which can damp the later aerodynamic pulsations as a move to boost comfort for those inside the cabin.
Lamborghini’s engineers also optimized airflow to the engine by installing two fins while the slatted hood of the motor was created specifically for this model which features black air intakes. Speaking of the engine, it’s the 5.2-liter V10 naturally aspirated gasoline unit with 610 bhp and 560 Nm of torque, enough to enable the open-top model hit 100 kmph from a standstill in 3.4 seconds while the 0-200 kmph run takes 10.2 seconds before reaching a maximum speed of 324 kmph.
The vehicle weighs 1,542 kg, with the weight distributed 43% in the front and 57% at the back while in terms of fuel efficiency it can do 8.1 kmpl which isn’t half bad for such a car that comes with stop/start system as well as cylinder-on-demand technology.
As standard, the Lamborghini Huracan Spyder gets 20-inch Giano alloy wheels, LED headlights, 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and carbon ceramic brakes with 380mm discs at the front coupled to brake calipers which can have just about any paint desired by the customer.
Deliveries of the new model from Sant’Agata Bolognese will start in the spring of 2016 and Lamborghini is asking €186,450 plus taxes.
