After introducing the more powerful Huracan Evo earlier this year, there was little doubt that Lamborghini would build an open-top variant in the near future.
Well, it seems that the future is now.
Just before the 2019 Geneva Motor Show opens, Lamborghini has revealed the all-new Huracan Evo Spyder. The Huracan Evo Spyder offers the same amenities as the coupe, but with the option of enjoying open-top driving.
Mechanically, the specs of the Spyder are identical to that of it's coupe sibling. The naturally aspirated 5.2 liter V10 continues to produce 640 PS and 600 Nm of torque. That power is then sent to the all-four wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, which includes a locking rear differential. Because of the roof being removed and more reinforcement needed, the Spyder weighs 120kg more than the normal Huracan Evo. This puts the Spyder's dry weight at 1,542 kg compared to the coupe's 1,422 kg.
Due to the weight increase, this, in turn, lowered the Spyder's 0 to 100km/h time from 2.9 to 3.1 seconds. However, top speed remains unchanged from the coupe which is rated at 325 km/h. Lamborghini did not mention whether this was with the roof up or down.
Externally, the Huracan Evo Spyder looks identical to its hard-top counterpart albeit for the electronic folding roof. It features the same aggressive front bumper and splitter which helps enhance the car's aerodynamic performance. There are also new wheels, new air intakes, and even a new rear spoiler. The titanium exhaust is also mounted higher up on the bumper, similar to the Performante version of the Huracan.
Much like the coupe, the Huracan Evo Spyder is loaded with a bunch of features including the new version of their electronically-adjustable dampers and Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI), making the car more agile and responsive on both the track and the streets.
