The new Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder was officially unveiled yesterday at the Frankfurt motor show, whereupon AutoConception.com caught up with Lamborghini design boss Filippo Perini, who talked over some of the car’s key design elements.
Underneath, the new drop-top gets the same engine as the coupe, namely, a naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10 engine that produces 602 bhp. Acceleration from 0 to 62 mph takes 3.4 seconds, while top speed is 201 mph.
The convertible also includes new technical features of the 2016 model year Huracán family, including ‘cylinder on demand’ in combination with ‘stop start’, and a new electronically controlled all-wheel drive set-up for improved driving behavior.
“Its predecessor, the Gallardo Spyder, was the best-selling open top model in Lamborghini’s history: we expect the Huracán Spyder to exceed its predecessor in every way,” said Lamborghini CEO, Stephan Winkelmann.
Lamborghini also claims the open-topped two-seater is 40% stiffer than its predecessor, and generates 50% more downforce.
