With its inimitable 5.2-litre V10 naturally aspirated engine and permanent four-wheel-drive, the Huracan Performante Spyder accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in 3.1 seconds and from 0 to 200km/h in 9.3 seconds, and has a top speed of 325km/h that matches its coupe stablemate. Braking from 100 to 0km/h is mastered in 31.5 metres.
Like the Performante coupe, the Spyder outputs 640hp at 8000rpm and produces 600Nm of torque at 6500rpm, with more than 70% of torque already available at 1000rpm. With a total dry weight of just 1507kg, the Spyder returns a weight-to-power ratio of 2.35kg/hp, with weight distribution front:rear of 43:57%.
The inherent design, technology and performance features of the Huracan Performante are as fundamental in the Spyder, thus adding a new dimension of driving pleasure to the supreme driving experience of the Performante. Its open-top design clearly differentiates the Spyder from its coupe counterpart, with roof both open and closed.
The Performante design cues of Super Trofeo racecars and performance motorcycles with their naked, open-frame street-fighter characters remind that the Huracan Performante Spyder is a super sports car as capable on the track as the road.
The visible carbon fibre running throughout the aluminium body references the Huracan Performante Spyder’s lightweight character, contributing to a weight reduction of 35kg over the original Huracan Spyder. Forged composite, with its ability to be shaped into complex geometrical shapes, features in the front and rear spoiler, engine bonnet, rear bumper and aerodynamic diffuser – functional element and components within Lamborghini’s patented active aerodynamics system introduced on the Huracan Performante, the Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva, or ALA.
The Spyder’s soft-top does not compromise the ALA system, which varies aero load in conditions requiring either high downforce or low drag, as well as enabling aero vectoring in high-speed cornering, thus providing excellent driving dynamics on track and on road in every condition.
Lamborghini’s Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI) system governs all the electronic systems in real time, including the car’s setup as well as activating the ALA system in less than 500 milliseconds, ensuring the best aerodynamic configuration of the vehicle in every driving condition.
Like the Huracan Performante coupe, the Spyder features an enhanced suspension system, recalibrated ESC, more responsive Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS), permanent four-wheel-drive maximising traction in all situations in conjunction with the ALA system, and revised ANIMA, which is Lamborghini’s driver-mode system comprising Strada, Sport and Corsa, for customising the setup of all the car’s dynamic systems.
The lightweight, electro-hydraulic roof ensures the Huracan Performante open-top is a true Spyder, perfectly complementing the car’s distinctive lines both open and closed, and maintaining rigidity, handling and performance. Even as a convertible, the Huracan Performante Spyder maintains the stiffness of an ultra-performing super sports car.
The roof defines the Performante’s dynamic silhouette while closed, and when down is efficiently stored to maintain the Performante Spyder’s perfect centre of gravity, revealing the alter-ego aesthete of the open Huracan Performante Spyder.
The roof opens in just 17 seconds up to a driving speed of 50km/h. The rear window can also be electrically opened, which functions as a windshield when closed.
When the roof is down, the Huracan Performante Spyder’s design incorporates two movable fins, which rise out of the folding roof casing and continue the roofline from seatbacks to the rear of the car, lending the Spyder its distinctive silhouette. An integrated duct within the fins reduces turbulence in the headroom during open-top driving. Two additional, removable wind guards damp lateral aerodynamic pulsations, ensuring perfect acoustic comfort that allows conversation even at high speeds.
The Lambo Huracan Performante Spyder, with roof open or closed, is equally a driver’s car in challenging dynamic situations, as well as a thrilling lifestyle experience.
