“The sky will never be the same” was one of the headlines during the teasing game for the Huracan Spyder and now Lamborghini is finally showing us what they meant by that rather bold statement. In the attached promotional video we see how the open-top supercar can bright up the owner’s day as wherever it’s being driven, the car is always under sunlight even though everything around it is cloudy. In other words, Lamborghini is telling us that it’s always sunning when driving the Huracan Spyder.
Taking down the roof or putting it back in position takes 17 seconds and this is done by pressing a button installed on the center console. The top can be operated at speeds of up to 50 kmph and customers will have the possibility of ordering the roof with a red, black or a brown finish. As standard, the Huracan Spyder has LED headlights, Giano 20-inch rims and that fancy 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster which can be customized in many ways according to the driver’s preferences.
It weighs 1,542 kg and uses the familiar 5.2-liter V10 naturally aspirated engine shared with the coupe and the second generation Audi R8. In this application it churns 610 bhp and 560 Nm of torque which is enough to enable a 0-100 kmph sprint in as little as 3.4 seconds while the 0-200 kmph journey takes 10.2 seconds before the car hits a top speed of 324 kmph.
Lamborghini has previously announced the Huracan Spyder will start reaching its rightful owners in the spring of next year. Around the same time, the company from Sant’Agata Bolognese is expected to unveil a limited-run Huracan coupe equipped with the Aventador’s V12 engine but further tweaked to unleash 770 bhp. Only 20 of those are planned for production and all of them will be coupes priced significantly higher than the regular Huracan.
