Lamborghini has unveiled the Huracan Spyder at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
Based on the Huracan coupe, the open top Spyder model’s design remains largely unchanged, except the electrohydraulic soft top, instead of a metal roof. The new soft top opens and closes in 17 seconds at speeds of up to 31 miles and is operated through a new button mounted on the centre tunnel.
Whether the roof is open or closed, the driver can still open the rear window. Soft top colour choices include black, brown and red hues with built-in duct that reduces turbulence in the headroom while driving with the roof down.
There are also two removable lateral wind guards and two fins for optimizing airflow through the engine department that is covered by slatted hood specifically developed for the Spyder with the motor’s air intakes painted in black.
The Huracan Spyder weighs 1,542 kg and power comes from the familiar naturally aspirated 503bhp 5.2-litre V10, taking it from 0-62mph in 3.4 seconds with 0-124mph in 10.2 seconds on to a top speed of 201mph.
Other highlights include standard carbon ceramic brakes with 380mm front discs, LED headlights, 20-inch Giano alloys and a 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster.
Fuel economy is 23mpg, that is far from impressive, but it is unlikely any future owner will care about it.
Prices start from €186,450 plus taxes with first deliveries next spring.
