Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder

Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder

The Performante is the hot Huracán, its 5.2-liter V10 producing a handsome 640 horsepower, and our 2017 review described the Performante as the character-adding boost the Huracán model line so required.

Following a number of teasers and previews, Lamborghini has now unveiled the hypo new Huracan Performante Spyder at the Geneva motor show. Much like the Coupe, the Spyder also features a revised suspension setup, a recalibrated ESC system and a tweaked steering. Lamborghini's active aerodynamics mechanism called Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva is carried over to the Spyder without any changes. The drive modes include Strada, Sport, and Corsa, each distinctly customizing the rides dynamic settings.

Lamborghini hasn't released any information on Australian pricing, but the current Performante Coupe costs in excess of $500,000 locally, and the Spyder variant would therefore be in the $550,000-$600,000 range locally. All of that weight saving can be seen in the naked carbon fibre detailing on the Huracan, which we think looks delicious!

As for the highlight of the auto, the roof, it opens electronically and takes around 17 seconds to retract. The fins also include an integrated duct that works to reduce cabin turbulence, and two wind guards dampen "aerodynamic pulsations".

When the Huracan Performante was announced, Lamborghini made a big deal about its active aerodynamics system, which can change the angle of the wings on each side of the auto to alter downforce and improve handling.

Lamborghini is quick to point out that the soft top in no way affects the ALA system.

Time to claim the record for the fastest production convertible at the Nurburgring, eh Lamborghini?

According to Lambo, the Performante Spyder matches the coupe's top speed of 202 miles per hour but gets to 62 miles per hour two-tenths of a second slower, clocking a 3.1-second sprint compared to the hardtop's 2.9.
