Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder

All the performance of the coupé plus the rush of open-air driving

As soon as the Huracán coupé was launched, it was on the cards that Lamborghini would follow up with a convertible, just as they had with the Gallardo, its predecessor.

But the new Huracán Spyder is no quick chop job; the new convertible has a style all its own thanks to its resculpted lines and rear deck treatment. It’s distinctively Lamborghini, devastatingly fast and draws every eye like a magnet.

Overview

Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder

The latest generation of convertible supercars have thrown a stick of dynamite at the view that coupés are for driving and drop tops are for posing. The new Húracan Spyder proves the point; sensational power, grip and precision make it every bit as rewarding to drive on track as its coupé sibling. That’s partly down to exceptional torsional stiffness for a convertible, a 40% improvement compared with its Gallardo predecessor. And when you do want to drop the pace a little and lap up the attention, its innovative soft top stows away in just 17 seconds, at speeds of up to 31mph

The design, too, is dramatically different thanks to the two ‘fins’ that start at the seatback and continue the roofline to the rear, defining the side view of the Spyder and giving the cockpit an enclosed look, like the cockpit of a fighter. The roof itself is a work of technological art; it’s a lightweight soft-top that keeps the centre of gravity low, and is electro-hydraulically powered to tuck away neatly when stowed. It even features a separately-powered rear glass so you can hear the full chorus of the Huracán’s ten cylinders in full cry. Anti-roll protection is by automatic pop-up safety bars so the car’s lines remain unsullied in normal driving. An integrated duct and two removable lateral wind guards cocoon the car’s occupants in a pocket of still air, allowing normal conversation even at high cruising speed. It’s a well-resolved piece of design that’s entirely consistent with the Huracán ethos; as fast as you want when you want, as civilised as you want all the time.

Technology

Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder

As with the Huracán coupé, the essentials of 602bhp (610 metric HP, hence the name) V10 engine powering all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox are unchanged. And quite right too – it’s a sensational powertrain, soulful, lightning-fast through the box and capable of 201mph flat out. 0-62mph takes 3.4 seconds, 0-124mph (200 km/h) takes just 10.2 seconds. Taking care of the traction and torque distribution is a cooled hydraulic multi-plate coupling that can distribute power freely between front and rear. Weight distribution is a near-ideal 43/57 front to rear.

Latest technology to make its debut with the Spyder is ‘cylinder on demand’, which deactivates one bank of cylinders under part load or a trailing throttle. This helps keep fuel consumption as reasonable as one could expect for a 200mph supercar. CO2 emissions are 14% lower than those of the Gallardo, despite the increased power and performance. As a cutting-edge Italian convertible supercar, the latest charging bull from Lamborghini is neck and neck with its prancing horse rival from nearby Maranello. But if you want the rasp of a naturally-aspirated V10, it’s the only game in town.
