Huracán Spyder: The New Italian Sports Car
Huracán Spyder is a pinnacle of Italian made taste and hand craftsmanship. It‘s designed to cut through the air and become one with the sky. It’s a sports car concept elevated to the performance and sensations of a coupé. To succeed in this challenge, every single element was redesigned for the precise purpose of eliminating the roof without compromising any of the car’s aerodynamics or torsional stiffness.
The Huracán Spyder’s design, sculptured and sensual, is based on the spiky hexagonal forms of the carbon atom. The seamless roof profile, visible even when the soft top is open, is an unmistakable mark of the Lamborghini DNA. Inside, the sporty yet elegant interiors were developed to ensure all the space and comfort you need. Every detail is designed to make your driving experience natural and stimulating, in a cockpit with finishes of the very highest quality.
The 610 CV naturally aspirated V10 engine of the Huracán Spyder can take you from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds and propel you beyond 324 km/h. The Huracán Spyder’s aluminum and carbon-fiber chassis is 40 percent stiffer in torsion than the old Gallardo droptop. The new car’s bodywork generates 50 percent greater downforce. Lamborghini claims the Spyder weighs just one pound shy of 3400 pounds. The Huracán coupe arrived last year. The automaker said that car weighed barely less than 3400 pounds. This is all to say that the Spyder may not be much heavier than its fixed-roof sibling.
Since the Volkswagen Group began its assimilation of Lamborghini in 1998, the automaker from the sleepy Italian burg of Sant’Agata has nearly tripled its employees and increased sales from a few hundred cars per year to 3245 in 2015. A poster child for this explosive growth is the new Huracán coupe, which is, in its first 18 months on the market, outselling its predecessor, the Gallardo, by a rate of 70 percent. So the Huracán Spyder is poised for success. Two years ago the Lamborghini Huracan has surprised and impressed us with its balance of attitude and capability.
