The first thing you ought to know (and celebrate) about the Lamborghini Huracan Spyder is the fact that it’s naturally aspirated. No forced induction here, right Ferrari and McLaren? The 5.2-liter V10 with 602 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque is glorious and we’re hoping Lamborghini will stick with it for as long as possible. We’ve already checked out the Huracan Coupe but the drop top Spyder variant is just as impressive. Zero to 60 mph happens in only 2.8 seconds, 0-100 in 5.9 seconds and it boasts a top speed of 201 mph.
Unlike the Ferrari 488 and McLaren 650S Spiders, the Huracan Spyder features a soft-top instead of a folding hard top. Our tester also came packed with many extras, such as upgraded navigation system straight from parent company Audi and a $4,200 sport exhaust system.
For the moment, the Huracan Spyder is only offered in all-wheel drive, whereas you can have it in the coupe, the LP 580-2. With a base price of $262,450, we happen to think the Huracan Spyder (as well as both the LP 610-4 and LP 580-2) is a bargain mid-engined supercar. How come? Because it’s two main rivals are turbocharged and if you want a naturally aspirated supercar, you’ll have to pay up for the V12-powered Lamborghini Aventador or Ferrari F12berlinetta. Special thanks to Los Gatos Luxury Cars for letting us film the car.
