Lamborghini unveiled the facelifted Huracan EVO a few weeks ago, and already the supercar has been spied testing in convertible guise.
The following clip shows the droptop cruising along the I-75 in the U.S. and its identity is easy to pick for anyone even a little bit familiar with the Huracan range. Most notably, the rear end is a dramatic departure from the existing Huracan Spyder and comes adorned with all the same styling modifications as the coupe.
This prototype features exhausts exiting out of the same location as the Huracan Performante and has an aggressive new rear diffuser and identical lip spoiler in the center of the decklid. Changes are also present across the front fascia and include an overhauled bumper with new air intakes and a more intricate design.
While the coupe was uncovered in Detroit, predicting the launch of the Huracan EVO Spyder is a little more difficult.
When the Huracan launched back at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, the Italian marque took a full 18 months before premiering the Spyder. While it is possible that we will have to wait until 2020 to see the EVO Spyder, Lamborghini might speed up things a bit this time and launch it in the third of fourth quarter of 2019.
When the open-top supercar does arrive, it will be powered by the same naturally-aspirated 5.2-liter V10 as the coupe, delivering 631 hp at 8000 rpm and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of peak torque at 6500 rpm. Like the fixed-top version, it will also get four-wheel steering, four-wheel torque vectoring, and a new Vehicle Dynamics Control System.
