Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder Unveiled

The Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder is among many new cars revealed at the 2015 Frankfurt auto show this week. Lamborghini says the open-top model offers more emotion than the coupe currently on sale.

“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 Lamborghini, in a release. “The Huracan Spyder combines the innovation, performance and appeal of the Huracan coupé, 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.”

Power for the new Huracan Spyder comes from the same naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V-10 making 602 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque as the coupe model. The engine features cylinder-on-demand and auto stop-start fuel-saving technologies. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission sends power to a new electronically controlled all-wheel drive system that routes power to all four wheels. Lamborghini estimates a 0-62 mph time of just 3.4 seconds, 0-120 mph in 10.2 seconds, and a top speed of 201 mph. In our testing, a Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 coupe hit 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds and finished the quarter-mile in 10.6 seconds at 132.8 mph.

The Huracan Spyder’s electro-hydraulically operated soft top opens in just 17 seconds and at speeds up to 31 mph. Spyder models also feature hidden automatic pop-up safety bars. Additionally, the rear window can be opened or closed with the top up or down to enhance the sound of the V-10 engine.

A set of moveable “fins” aft of the seats feature integrated ducts to reduce turbulence with the top down. The fins also optimize airflow through the engine compartment. Additionally, the Huracan Spyder features two removable lateral wind guards to allow normal conversation with the top down at speed. The Spyder features a unique slatted engine cover.

Lamborghini says the Huracan Spyder’s carbon fiber and aluminum chassis has 40 percent more torsional rigidity over the Gallardo Spyder, which improves performance and reduces NVH. The Huracan Spyder has a dry weight of 3,399 pounds giving it a power-to-weight ratio of 5.57 pounds per horsepower, according to the automaker. Additionally, the Huracan Spyder is said to have 50 percent more downforce than its predecessor.

Carbon-ceramic brakes are standard and feature 14.96-inch front discs. Customers can select their brake caliper color. The automaker’s optional Huracan Spyder LDS (Lamborghini Dynamic Steering) and magnetorheological damper control systems are available.

Inside, the Lamborghini Infotainment System II with reconfigurable 12.3-inch TFT display remains, while navigation is optional. The interior is finished in Alcantara and Nappa leather in five trims including Standard, Elegante, Sportivo with Alcantara, Sportivo bicolor with Alcantara, and Sportivo bicolor with soft leather. Seventeen interior colors are available.

The exterior is available in 11 standard paint colors, while the soft top is available in black, brown, or red. More paint colors are available through the Ad Personam individualization program, which includes five matte exterior colors.

Standard features include LED headlights and taillights, 20-inch Giano wheels, the Lamborghini Infotainment System II, while the long option list includes an exterior Style package and the Sensonum high end Sound system.

The Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder will go on sale in Europe beginning Spring 2016 starting at 186,450 Euros. In the U.S. pricing will start at $267,545 U.S. (including $1,700 gas guzzler tax and $3,495 destination).
