Lamborghini will unveil the Lamborghini Huracan roadster at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March, writes Jonny Lieberman from MotorTrend.
The Lamborghini Huracan coupe sports a 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 engine that produces 449 kW (602 hp) and 560 Nm of torque. The engine comes paired to a 7-speed LDF dual-clutch transmission. There’s an all-wheel drive system to distribute power and the coupe does 0-100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and goes further to hit a top speed of over 325 km/h.
Expect the convertible to be similarly specced when it arrives on the market next year. It’ll be interesting to see if Lamborghini goes for a hard top on the Huracan.
The newly announced Ferrari 488 Spider, which it directly competes with, sports a 3.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine that churns out 492 kW (660 hp) and 760 Nm of torque. It reaches 0-100 km/h in 3 seconds flat, and hits a top speed of over 325 km/h. While the basic performance specifications are expected to remain the same, Ferrari’s roadster will have an edge over the Lamborghini’s if it remains to be the only one of the two to be offered with a hard top.
The Ferrari 488 Spider will see the light of day earlier, as its debut is announced at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show (2015 IAA) in September.
