Lamborghini Expands Huracan Range With 610HP Huracan Spyder0
Lamborghini has expanded the Huracan model range by introducing the Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. The automaker says the drop-top supercar is the “the next chapter in the success story of the naturally aspirated V10 Huracan,” and continues a tradition of open-air motoring from Lamborghini.
Mechanically, the Huracan Spyder is identical to the hardtop variant. The same naturally aspirated, 610 horsepower V10 engine and 7-speed dual clutch transmission are utilized and together hustle the car from 0-62 mph in 3.4 seconds before taking it to a certified 201 mph top speed. The Huracan Spyder also boasts new tech from the 2016 model year Huracan coupe such as ‘cylinder on demand’ cylinder deactivation, a start/stop system and an improved all-wheel drive system.
The Huracan Spyder’s soft-top roof is available in three different colors (black, brown and red) and can be deployed in just 17 seconds and at speed of up to 31 mph. When it’s down, Lamborghini says it fits snuggly into a hidden away compartment and maintains the Huracan’s perfect center of gravity.

Lambo claims the Huracan Spyder is 40% stiffer than its predecessor and also produces 50% more downforce thanks to a flat underbody, a fixed rear spoiler and large rear diffuser.
Prices for the Huracan Spyder start at 186,450 Euros, or $210,060 USD. Lamborghini says customer deliveries will commence in Spirng 2016 – just in time for prime open top motoring season to begin.
