This roofless Lambo promises to be even more thrilling.
Lamborghini has finally taken the wraps off of its baby convertible andwe are now able to drool over this: the Huracan Spyder. Lamborghinihas obviously gone to extreme lengths to ensure that the supercar is just asfun with its roof off. The roofless Huracan utilizes an electrohydraulic fabricroof that can be lowered in 17 seconds and can be operated at a driving speedof up to 31 mph. While the roof can be finished in black, brown, or red, the convertible is a perfect poster car with the roof down.
Just like the Aventador Roadster, the new Huracan Spyder features a rear window thatcan be opened or closed in both roof positions for even more glorious V10noise. With the roof down, a pair of movable fins can be spotted that start atthe seatbacks and continue along the vehicle’s roofline that feature anintegrated duct. Just like the Huracan,the Sypder packs the same 5.2-liter V10 that makes 610 hp and 413 lb.-ft. oftorque. The Spyder may have gained 264 lbs. over the hardtop variant, but stillmanages to get to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and onto a top speed of 201 mph. That’sonly 0.2 seconds off of the Huracan Coupe’s time. That’s not a bad tradeoff forunlimited headroom and more noise.
The HuracanSpyder’s chassis is 40-percent stiffer than the one found in the GallardoSpyder and has a dry weight of 3,399 lbs. That gives the new convertible a power-to-weight-ratioof 5.575 lbs. per horsepower. The Huracan Spyder also has 50-percent more downforcethan the previous model thanks to a flat underbody, a large rear diffuser and anintegrated rear spoiler. Deliveries of the convertible supercar are expected to startnext spring. Pricing for the vehicle will start at $262,350, which doesn't include taxes or delivery.
