Automobili Lamborghini has introduced in India the Huracan
rear-wheel drive Spyder . The car comes with a new design in front and rear and
is powered by a naturally aspirated V10 engine outputting 580 hp. The car does
a 0-100km/h in 3.6 seconds with a top speed of 319 kmph.
The rear-wheel drive Spyder
will be available in the Indian markets with immediate effect and is priced at
Rs 3.45 crore (ex-showroom). Opening and closing in just 17 seconds at speeds
of up to 50 km/h, the lightweight soft top of this car is efficiently stowed to
maintain the Spyder’s perfect centre of gravity.
The car was launched in Mumbai
in the presence of Sharad Agarwal, Head of Automobili Lamborghini India. The
rear-wheel drive Huracán Spyder features a newly designed front and rear with a
dynamic but more aggressive look distinguishing it from the four- wheel drive
version. The good looks of the car are accented by the large front air intakes
that direct cooling air and headwind to increase down pressure on the front
axle. Its Pirelli PZero tyres are exclusively developed for the rear-wheel
drive. Specially contoured steel brakes with aluminum brake disc pots assist in
weight reduction and improved cooling.
With the roof down, two
distinctive fins rise out of the folding roof-casing to perfectly define the
unique lines of the open car. The Huracán’s exceptionally stiff hybrid aluminum
and carbon fibre chassis is complemented by springs and anti-roll bars on
double wishbone suspension, optimised for two-wheel drive. Weight distribution
is biased 40% at the front / 60% at the rear, reducing inertia on the front
axle compared to the Huracán 4WD version.
The Lamborghini Doppia
Frizione (LDF) seven-speed dual clutch architecture ensures the fastest gear
changes and includes ‘launch control’ for maximum acceleration from a standing
start. The electronic power steering and optional Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) are tuned specifically
for the rear-wheel drive Spyder, ensuring maximum agility and control in every
driving condition, depending on driving mode and speed.
As it does in the
rear-wheel drive Huracán
coupe, the Spyder’s V10
5.2 l naturally aspirated,
mid-mounted engine provides a maximum 580 hp power output at 8,000 rpm and 540
Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm, with 75% of
torque already available at 1,000 rpm.
As in all Huracán models,
cylinder deactivation improves engine efficiency, reduces fuel consumption and
reduces CO2. When full engine capacity is not required, five of the ten
cylinders are temporarily deactivated by switching off one cylinder bank. When
the driver accelerates, the system switches back instantaneously to
ten-cylinder mode, with the changeover being virtually impossible to detect by
