The Lamborghini Huracan has taken its top off, creating the new Huracan Spyder LP 610-4. The Italian convertible offers drivers even more thrills and excitement than the coupe.
Unsurprisingly, the Huracan Spyder carries over most of the coupe’s design, with the only exceptions being a pair of fins behind the seats that help define the side profile of the car and a lightweight, electrohydraulic soft top that replaces the metal roof.

The fabric top is operated via a button mounted on the center console and can be opened or closed in 17 seconds at speeds of up to 31 miles (50 km/h). Available in black, brown and red hues, it features a built-in duct that reduces interior turbulence while driving with the roof down.
Unlike with the regular Huracan, the rear window can be lowered to amplify the sweet sound of the V10 engine, regardless of whether the roof is closed or opened.
The Huracan Spyder weighs 1,542 kg (3,399 lbs), which is divided 43:57 front / rear. It sources is power from a naturally-aspirated, 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces 610 horsepower at 8,250 rpm and 413 lb-ft. (560 Nm) of torque at 6,500 rpm, representing a power-to-weight ratio of 2.53kg (5.57lbs) per hp.
All it takes is 3.4 seconds for the car to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h). A sprint to 124 mph (200 km/h) is completed in 10.2 seconds, while top speed is reached at 201 mph (324 km/h). An updated all-wheel drive system supposedly allows for handling characteristics in line with the coupe’s.
A flat underbody, large rear diffuser and integrated rear spoiler grants the Huracan Spyder a 50 percent increase in downforce over the Gallardo Spyder, its predecessor.
Deliveries of the new Lamborghini Huracan Spyder LP 610-4 start in spring 2016, with prices in Europe starting at 186,450€ (about $211,000), national taxes. Is it the convertible of your dreams?
