Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder Goes Topless In Geneva

One year ago, Lamborghini unveiled the hardcore Huracan Performante. Now, the most driver-oriented version of the Huracan is getting an open-top version, which will undoubtedly turn every head in the room at the Geneva Motor Show.

The new Huracan Performante Spyder features a soft-top roof that takes 17 seconds to open or close and doesn’t compromise the ALA (Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva) active aerodynamics.

Its naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 develops just as much power as its fixed-roof sibling, which is 640PS (631hp) and 600Nm (lb-ft) of torque, or 30PS (30hp) and 40Nm (30lb-ft) more than the LP610-4 Spyder, from which it is also 35kg (77lbs) lighter.

The 0 to 100km/h (0-62mph) sprint has dropped from the standard Spyder’s 3.4 seconds to 3.1, which is 0.2sec shy off the Huracan Performante Coupe. Top speed is identical, though, at 325km/h (202mph).

Just like the Performante Coupe, the new Spyder benefits from an enhanced suspension, more responsive steering, recalibrated ESC, permanent four-wheel drive, ALA active aero and revised ANIMA. The drive-mode system offers three settings, Strada, Sport and Corsa, with each one customizing the setup of the dynamic systems accordingly.

Deep pocketed enthusiasts can already order the new Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder in different markets worldwide, but they will have to wait at least until summer to take delivery.

Prices start at €219,585 in Europe, £195,078 in the United Kingdom, $308,859 in the USA, RMB 4,237,777 in China and YEN 35,613,532 in Japan, local taxes excluded.
