Automobili Lamborghini has presented the Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder. It’s a perfect example of technological innovation, performance and open-air driving.

“The Huracan Performante Spyder takes the zenith of Huracán developments, combined with the enhanced emotion of driving a convertible. The Huracan Performante already provides the most heightened feedback and emotion from road and track, and the Huracan Performante Spyder puts the driver even closer to asphalt and air, as well as the unique resonance of a naturally-aspirated Lamborghini engine,” said Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini.
The Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder is powered by a 5.2-litre V10 naturally-aspirated engine which makes 640 hp (470 kW) at 8000 rpm and 600 Nm of torque at 6500 rpm. The permanent four-wheel drive Performante Spyder accelerates from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.1 seconds, 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph) in 9.3 seconds, and with a top speed of 325 km/h. Braking from 100-0 km/h is mastered in 31.5 m.
The inherent design, technology and performance features of the Huracan Performante are as fundamental in the Spyder. 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 race cars and performance motorcycles with their naked, open-frame streetfighter characters remind that the Huracan Performante Spyder is a super sports car as capable on the track as the road.
The visible carbon fiber running throughout the aluminium body references the Huracan Performante Spyder’s lightweight character, contributing to a weight reduction of 35 kg over the original Huracan Spyder.
The Spyder’s soft-top does not compromise the Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva — 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. The roof opens in just 17 seconds up to a driving speed of 50 km/h (30 mph). The rear window can also be electrically opened, which functions as a windshield when closed.
Lamborghini’s Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI) system governs all the car’s electronic systems in real time, including the car’s set-up as well as activating the ALA system in less than 500 milliseconds. The Spyder features an enhanced suspension system; recalibrated ESC; more responsive Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS); permanent four-wheel drive maximizing traction in all situations in conjunction with the ALA system; and revised ANIMA: Lamborghini’s driver-mode system comprising STRADA, SPORT and CORSA, which customizes the set-up of all the car’s dynamic systems.
