A couple of weeks ago Automobili Lamborghini presented the new Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder at the Frankfurt International Motor Show. The new open top version of the Huracán LP 610-4 combines the power and performance of the coupé with in their words ‘the emotion of open-air driving.’
There’s no doubt that the Huracán is a stunning vehicle which stands for inspiring technology, outstanding quality and breathtaking performance. The Spyder comes with luxurious comfort with a pure and dynamic design ensuring that the convertible version of the Huracán is an iconic Lamborghini in its own right.
Its lightweight, electrohydraulic soft top gives the new Lamborghini a distinctive presence with roof both open and closed, and maximum comfort for driver and passenger with uncompromising handling and performance.
The naturally aspirated 5.2l V10 engine produces 449 kW / 610 hp. The new Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.4 seconds, with a top speed of 324 km/h (201 mph).
The Spyder also includes new technical features of the 2016 model year Huracán family, including ‘cylinder on demand’ in combination with ‘stop start’, and a new electronically controlled all-wheel drive set-up for even improved driving behaviour.
“The Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder is the next chapter in the success story of the naturally aspirated V10 Huracán, and continues a Lamborghini tradition of open air motoring,” says Stephan – Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “The Huracán Spyder combines the innovation, performance and appeal of the Huracán 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 Huracán Spyder to exceed its predecessor in every way.”
There is no doubt this new addition to the Lamborghini range will attract a lot of interest with it’s stunning styling and bold colours. With the roof opening or closing in 11 seconds whilst driving, there will be little worries in getting that lovely interior wet (in the UK at least).
Overall, Lamborghini is producing some strong models and venturing into new areas, which is great to see. Lamborghini also reported a big increase in sales at the end of last year, which has been mirrored by a strong 2015.
The Spyder therefore is not the only new project with a Lamborghini SUV having been announced for 2018. There will be a lot more curves, lines, style and vibrance to come. Watch this space.
