Lamborghini says that they will “add a new dimension” to the Huracan Performante at the Geneva Motor Show, which is of course code for the drop-top Spyder version.
The Italian manufacturer has been testing the Huracan Performante Spyder for quite some time now, with development prototypes even caught out on the wild almost completely undisguised.
Chopping the roof off the Performante will definitely bring a “new dimension” to the driving experience as the free-revving 631hp V10 will flood the cabin more easily with its melodies.
The topless version of the Performante will carry over the revolutionary active aero agenda of the coupe, which includes hollow components letting the air pass through them on demand, depending on the conditions.
This is basically Performante’s biggest trick, with the hardcore V10 Lamborghini having proved its insane speed at the Nurburgring by posting a scarcely believable 6:52.01. To further silence the critics, Lamborghini gathered all the production lap-records of the Huracan Performante, which were achieved during press trials:
The naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine is one of the last of its kind, producing 631hp (640PS) at a screaming 8,000rpm and 442lb-ft (600Nm) of peak torque. 0-62mph (100km/h) comes in 2.9 seconds while the top speed is over 202mph (325km/h).
We still don’t know if the open-top Performante will be called like that but we only have to wait a few more days to find out.
