Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder Lands In America For $308K

The Lamborghini Huracán Performante Spyder has made its North American debut at a private event in New York.

Set to arrive this summer, the high-performance roadster starts at $308,859 and aims to add a “new dimension of driving pleasure to the supreme experience of the Huracán.”

The model is based on the Huracán Performante but it is distinguished by a power retractable soft top which can be lowered in 17 seconds at speeds of up to 30 mph (48.2 km/h). While most high-performance roadsters are more compromised than their coupe counterparts, Lamborghini says the “inherent design, technology and performance features of the Huracán Performante are as fundamental in the Spyder as they are in the coupe.”

Speaking of features, the Huracán Performante Spyder is 77 lbs (35 kg) lighter than the standard Spyder as it has been equipped with an assortment of Forged Composite components. The model also has the Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva system which adjusts the car’s aerodynamics to provide maximum downforce or minimum drag. Other highlights include a retuned suspension, a more responsive steering system and a recalibrated electronic stability control system.

Like the coupe, the roadster is powered by a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V8 engine that produces 640 hp (477 kW) and 442 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission and an all-wheel drive system which enables the model to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.1 seconds before topping out at 202 mph (325 km/h).

For comparison, the standard Huracán Spyder has 610 hp (449 kW) and 413 lb-ft (560 Nm) of torque. Unsurprisingly, the model is a tad slower than the high-performance variant as the dash from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) takes 3.4 seconds and the top speed is 201 mph (324 km/h).

In a statement, Automobili Lamborghini America COO Alessandro Farmeschi said The Huracán Performante Spyder “transcends performance expectations, evoking an all-new, exciting open-air experience that is perfect for summer driving.”
