Lamborghini has introduced the Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show (2015 IAA). The open-top version of the Huracan combines the power and performance of the coupe while employing a lightweight Electrohydraulic soft top to provide a more naturally pleasant driving experience.
Most of the styling is carried over from the coupe version but the convertible version replaces the roof with a newly developed lightweight Electrohydraulic soft top which can be operated via a button placed on the central tunnel. The soft top takes 17 seconds to open and can be used at driving speeds up to 50 km/h (31 mph). The soft top is available in three different colour schemes – black, red and brown, and incorporates an integrated duct that has been designed to reduce turbulence when the roof is down.
Drivers can also electronically open the rear window which functions as a windshield when closed and when opened it acts as an amplifier of the engine sound. For enhanced comfort, the company has added two removable lateral wind guards which dampen the lateral aerodynamic pulsations. It also features two specially developed fins that are designed to optimize airflow to the engine compartment, covered by a slatted engine bonnet painted in black.
The Huracan Spyder weighs 1,542 kg and is powered by the 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 engine from the coupe. The engine develops 610 hp (449 kW) at 8,250 rpm and 560 Nm (413 lb.-ft.) of torque at 6,500 rpm. It can accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.4 seconds and can reach 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph) in 10.2 seconds. It has a top speed of 324 km/h (201 mph).
Power is sent to the wheels through the (LDF) 7-speed dual-clutch transmission in an all-wheel drive setup. The engine employs new start-stop technology and cylinder on demand technology which enables it to return fuel economy of 19.1 mpg (8.12 km/l).
Standard features include LED headlamps and tail lamps, 12.3-inch TFT display with the new Lamborghini Infotainment System II, carbon ceramic brakes, and 20-inch Giano alloy wheels amongst others. The Huracan Spyder is priced at €186,450 plus taxes, and deliveries are set to begin in Spring 2016.
