Automobili Lamborghini has unveiled the new Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder at
Frankfurt International Motor Show. It combines the power and performance of the
coupe with the emotion of open-air driving.
Luxurious comfort with a pure and dynamic design ensures the convertible version of the Huracan 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.
The naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine produces 610 hp (449 kW). The 2016 Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds, with a top speed of 201 mph (324 km/h). The Spyder also includes new technical features of the 2016 model year Huracan family, including 'cylinder on demand' in combination with 'stop start', and a new electronically controlled all-wheel drive set-up for even improved driving behavior.
Roof Available in Black, Brown and Red
The most distinctive feature of the 2016 Huracan Spyder is its new soft top. The roof is available in three different colors: black, brown and red. Even with the roof up, the lines of the Spyder differ significantly from those of the coupe. The lightweight soft top fits perfectly into the Spyder's silhouette while up, and when down is hidden away into the most efficient space possible, maintaining the Spyder's perfect center of gravity and revealing the athletic and equally powerful lines of the open car. Hidden automatic pop-up safety bars do not spoil the open car's low silhouette.
The new electrohydraulic, lightweight soft top opens via a button positioned on the central tunnel in just 17 seconds up to a driving speed of 31 mph (50 km/h). Whether the soft top is up or down, the driver can also electronically open the rear window, which functions as a windshield when closed and when open, as an amplifier of the unique engine sound of the naturally aspirated V10.
With the roof down, a distinctive design solution with two movable fins has been developed. The fins become visible during the opening process, rising out of the folding roof casing and perfectly defining the design of the open car.
Enhancing the car's low, powerful appearance, these rear fins that start at the seatbacks continue the roof line to the rear, perfectly shaping the side view of the Spyder.
Last but not least, the two fins contribute to optimizing airflow through the engine compartment, which is covered by a slatted engine bonnet specific to the Spyder. The air intakes of the engine compartment are painted in black.
