New Lamborghini Huracan Spyder

Lamborghini unveiled its new Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The open top version of the Huracan combines the power and performance of the coupe with the 'emotion of open-air driving'. The naturally aspirated 5.2l V10 engine produces 449 kW / 610 hp for a 0 to 62 mph time of 3.4 seconds, with a top speed of 201 mph. The Spyder also includes new technical features of the 2016 model year Huracan family such as cylinder on demand in combination with 'stop start' and a new electronically controlled all-wheel drive set-up for even improved driving behaviour.

The new Huracan Spyder combines 'luxurious comfort with a pure and dynamic design', ensuring the convertible version of the Huracan is an iconic Lamborghini in its own right, says the Italian brand. Its lightweight, electrohydraulic soft top gives the new Spyder a distinctive presence with roof both open and closed, and 'maximum comfort for driver and passenger with uncompromising handling and performance'.

"The Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder is the next chapter in the success story of the naturally aspirated V10 Huracan, and continues a Lamborghini tradition of open air motoring," said Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. "The Huracan Spyder combines the innovation, performance and appeal of the Huracan coupe, 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 Huracan Spyder to exceed its predecessor in every way."
