The LP610-4 is a recent addition to the supercar scene, and has stripped the top off the Huracán model to reveal a very nice natural successor to the discontinued Gallardo Spyder.
The Spyder version shares the Huracán’s mechanicals, with a 5.2-liter V10 and 602hp. A seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox routes power to all four wheels. The car performs well, from 0 to 62 in 3.4 seconds and to a top speed of 201mph. The car may be fast, but the power-retracting roof is too, dropping in just 17 seconds at lower speeds.
New features for the Spyder include the addition of cylinder-on-demand technology and an engine stop-start system, which will also be included on 2016-model-year versions of the Huracán coupé. CO2 emissions are down 14% from the Gallardo Spyder.The designers at Lamborghini reworked the roofline for a new aesthetic and better airflow. Nacelles trail the rear of the supercar, and turbulence-limiting ducts add to the newly sleek lines. The rear glass is power operated.
The Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 Spyder is expected to hit showrooms in spring 2016.
