Just 0.2-seconds separate this new Huracan Spyder from its hardtop sibling in the sprint to 62-mph: 3.4 versus 3.2 for the coupe.
But sensory immersion is a very powerful thing.
The V10 in open-air bellow will create a newly intense sense of occasion to this AWD supercar all-star. The most striking elements of the design really, really pop as a ragtop. The side scoops are a gorgeous detail, with their height in body-color neatly integrated into the wedge design. An all-new engine cover and slim roof uprights are glamorous and sexy, with less of a ‘targa’ feel than the folding hardtops in the 458 Ferrari of McLaren 650S Spider.

Sant’Agata Bolognese/Frankfurt, 14.09.2015 – Automobili Lamborghini presents the new Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder at Frankfurt International Motor Show. The open top version of the Huracán LP 610-4 combines the power and performance of the coupé with the emotion of open-air driving.
“The Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder is the next chapter in the success story of the naturally aspirated V10 Huracán, and continues a Lamborghini tradition of open air motoring,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “The Huracán Spyder combines the innovation, performance and appeal of the Huracán coupé, with new technologies and an added emotional dimension. Its predecessor, the Gallardo Spyder, was the best-selling open top model in Lamborghini’s history: we expect the Huracán Spyder to exceed its predecessor in every way.”
The new Huracán Spyder stands for inspiring technology, outstanding quality and breathtaking performance. Luxurious comfort with a pure and dynamic design ensures the convertible version of the Huracán is an iconic Lamborghini in its own right. Its lightweight, electrohydraulic soft top gives the new Lamborghini a distinctive presence with roof both open and closed, and maximum comfort for driver and passenger with uncompromising handling and performance.
The naturally aspirated 5.2l V10 engine produces 449 kW / 610 hp. The new Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.4 seconds, with a top speed of 324 km/h (201 mph). The Spyder also includes new technical features of the 2016 model year Huracán family, including ‘cylinder on demand’ in combination with ‘stop start’, and a new electronically controlled all-wheel drive set-up for even improved driving behavior.
