People With Wigs Should Stay Away From The New Lamborghini Huracan Spyder

This roofless Lambo promises to be even more thrilling.

Lamborghini has finally taken the wraps off of its baby convertible and we are now able to drool over this: the Huracan Spyder. Lamborghini has obviously gone to extreme lengths to ensure that the supercar is just as fun with its roof off. The roofless Huracan utilizes an electrohydraulic fabric roof that can be lowered in 17 seconds and can be operated at a driving speed of 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 that can be opened or closed in both roof positions for even more glorious V10 noise. With the roof down, a pair of movable fins can be spotted that start at the seatbacks and continue along the vehicle’s roofline that feature an integrated duct. Just like the Huracan, the Sypder packs the same 5.2-liter V10 that makes 610 hp and 413 lb.-ft. of torque. The Spyder may have gained 264 lbs. over the hardtop variant, but still manages to get to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and onto a top speed of 201 mph. That’s only 0.2 seconds off of the Huracan Coupe’s time. That’s not a bad tradeoff for unlimited headroom and more noise.

The Huracan Spyder’s chassis is 40-percent stiffer than the one found in the Gallardo Spyder and has a dry weight of 3,399 lbs. That gives the new convertible a power-to-weight-ratio of 5.575 lbs. per horsepower. The Huracan Spyder also has 50-percent more downforce than the previous model thanks to a flat underbody, a large rear diffuser and an integrated rear spoiler. Deliveries of the convertible supercar are expected to start next spring. Pricing for the vehicle will start at $262,350, which doesn't include taxes or delivery.
