Lamborghini has revealed the Huracan Spyder before its official debut at Geneva International Motor Show 2019. The drop-top supercar follows its coupe sibling, Huracan EVO’s launch earlier this year.
For its new avatar, the 2020 Lamborghini Huracan EVO Spyder has a lot to offer. In addition to the EVO’s slick electronics package and powerful engine, the Spyder boasts of an identical top speed to the latter. And it is an Italian convertible, so you also get undeniable style and presence.
Although it is 120kg heavier than the coupe, you can't deny the Huracan EVO Spyder has got style.
Diving right down into the juicy details, yes the Huracan EVO Spyder is heavier than the coupe, 120kg more to be precise. The increased weight is due to a new soft-top mechanism that can close down fully on the cabin in 17 seconds flat up to speeds of 50kph. The porkier mass has resulted in the Spyder clocking a slower time to the ton.
Where the coupe sprints past 100kph in a mere 2.9 seconds, the Spyder needs 3.1. However, both cars achieve an identical top speed of 323kph. Lamborghini has equipped the Huracan EVO Spyder with pop-up rollover bars recessed behind the seats. The rear window can be retracted electrically whether the roof is up or down, allowing the occupants to bask in the naturally-aspirated 5.2-litre V10 engine’s glorious symphony. The engine produces 631hp and 601Nm
Lamborghini has also made sure that tech geeks yearn for the Spyder with a host of clever technology onboard. You get rear-wheel steering and four-wheel torque vectoring as on the Coupe. The Italian firm claims the Evo Spyder generates five times as much downforce as compared to the old Huracan. Cabin airflow is said to be minimized to assure a “quiet cockpit environment”, that is when the V10 isn’t at full chat, of course.
Although it might post 100kph on its HUD later than the coupe, the Huracan EVO Spyder and Coupe are evenly matched in terms of top speed.
Lamborghini has confirmed the Huracan EVO Spyder will be available to order “shortly”. Expect a price premium of around AED 60,000 over the coupe. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in early 2020.
