Hotter Lamborghini Huracan Spyder laps around the Green Hell

An even more powerful Huracan Spyder may soon be unleashed on the road. Previously, our spies were able to spot what appeared to be a Performante version of the high-performance convertible. Now, our insiders were able to take photos of the Huracan Spyder Performante doing laps around the Nurburgring.

Based on the pictures, it looks like this is the same heavily camouflaged prototype that our spies saw from before. There are no clear differences between it and the production hardtop apart from the fact that it has a fabric roof. There's no indication whether the roof can be operated electronically or manually.

It's safe to say that the convertible may have same body panels found on the standard Huracan Performante. What is more likely to happen is that Lamborghini will reinforce the chassis as it appears that they're currently testing the car's rigidity around the track.

Moreover, Lamborghini could also be conducting tests on the Forged Composites which comes as standard on the Performante.

In terms of power, the Huracan Spyder Performante will likely be equipped with the same high-output 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V10. It generates 630 PS and 600 Nm of torque and is mated to a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox.
