Automobili Lamborghini has
unveiled the Lamborghini Huracán Performante Spyder at the 2018 Geneva International
Motor Show. With its 5.2 l V10 naturally-aspirated engine, the permanent
four-wheel drive Performante Spyder accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3.1 seconds,
0-200 km/h in 9.3 seconds, and with a top speed of 325 km/h matches its coupé
stablemate. Braking from 100-0 km/h is mastered in 31.5 m.
Like the Performante coupé,
the Spyder outputs 640 hp at 8,000 rpm,
producing 600 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm, and with more than 70% of torque
already available at 1,000 rpm. With a total dry weight of just 1,507 kg, the
Spyder returns a weight-to-power ratio of 2.35 kg/hp, with weight distribution
front/rear of 43/57%.
The inherent design,
technology and performance features of the Huracán 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 coupé counterpart, with roof both open and
The Performante design cues of
Super Trofeo race cars and performance motorcycles with their naked, open-frame
streetfighter characters remind that the Huracán 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 Huracán Performante
Spyder’s lightweight character, contributing to a weight reduction of 35 kg
over the original Huracán Spyder. Forged composite, with its ability to be
shaped into complex geometrical shapes, features in front and rear spoiler,
engine bonnet, rear bumper and aerodynamic diffuser: functional elements
components within Lamborghini’s patented active aerodynamics system introduced
on the Huracán Performante: Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva -- ALA. The
Spyder’s soft-top does not compromise the ALA system, which varies aero load in
conditions requiring either high down force 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.
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, ensuring the best aerodynamic set-up of the car in every
driving condition. Like the Huracán Performante coupé, 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: Lamborghini’s
driver-mode system comprising STRADA, SPORT and CORSA, which customizes the
set-up of all the car’s dynamic systems.

roof opens in just 17 seconds up to a driving speed of 50 km/h). The rear
window can also be electrically opened, which functions as a windshield when
closed. When the roof is down, the Huracán 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 Huracán Performante Spyder, with
roof open or closed, is equally a driver’s car in challenging dynamic
situations, as well as a thrilling lifestyle experience.
