“The Huracan Performante Spyder takes the zenith of Huracan developments, combined with the enhanced emotion of driving a convertible. The Huracan Performante already provides the most heightened feedback and emotion from road and track, and the Huracan Performante Spyder puts the driver even closer to asphalt and air, as well as the unique resonance of a naturally aspirated Lamborghini Engine.”
– Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and CEO, Automobili Lamborghini
Performance Specs & Features
The new Spyder version of the Huracan Performante will be powered by a 5.2L V10 engine capable of doling out 640 horsepower alongside roughly 445 pound-feet of torque. These numbers allow this beast of a machine to hit 62 miles per hour in just 3.1 seconds, 124 mpg in only 9.3 seconds, and the same incredible top speed as the standard Performante, at roughly 202 miles per hour. Additionally, the Spyder can brake from a speed of 62 miles per hour to a complete stop in just 103.3 feet.
As we covered on Monday, the regular Lamborghini Huracan Performante recently broke records on eight major circuits around Europe. So, it’s not difficult to assume that the Performante Spyder will be just as impressive, if not even more so. Stay tuned here to our website for more updates on this new version of the Huracan as they become available, we’ll be sure to fill you in.
