The soft-top version of Lamborghini’s V10 supercar has a top speed of 201mph
Lamborghini has revealed the Huracan Spypder at the 2015 Frankfurt motor show, bringing open air thrills to its latest V10 supercar.
Officially called the Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder, the new car is powered by the same 602bhp V10 engine as the coupé, sending drive to all four wheels via a seven-speed paddle-shift gearbox.
The Spyder’s soft-top roof opens and closes electrically in 17 seconds, and can be operated at speeds up to 31mph. In addition, a retractable rear window doubles as a wind deflector, plus there are a further pair of removable lateral wind guards to reduce buffeting when the roof is down.
That roof is available in three colours (black, brown and red), while protection in the event of an accident is provided by automatically deployable rollover bars.
Power comes from a 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10, with peak horsepower delivered at 8,250rpm and the engine redline set at 8,700rpm. The 413lb ft of torque peaks at 6,500rpm, and the Hurcan Spyder can accelerate from 0-62mph in 3.4sec on its way to a top speed of 201mph, matching the coupé in the sprint but falling 2mph short at the top end.
As with the coupé, Lamborghini includes an “Anima” switch on the steering wheel that lets the driver choose between Strada, Sport and Corsa modes, which make the car feel increasingly more aggressive by altering how the engine, gearbox and stability control system function. Carbon-ceramic brakes are supplied as standard.
The Huracan Spyder makes its debut in Frankfurt before going on sale in the spring, priced from approximately £205,000.
