Automobili Lamborghini presented the new Lamborghini Huracán rear-wheel drive Spyder at an exclusive VIP only event held at private estate outside of LA. The front and rear of the car have been redesigned; its dynamic good looks are accented by the large front air intakes that direct cooling air and headwind to increase down-pressure on the front axle. Developed exclusively for the rear-wheel drive Huracán are bold Pirelli PZero tires sitting on 19” Kari rims. Specially contoured steel brakes with aluminum brake disc pots assist in weight reduction and improved cooling. Inside, the cockpit features the latest Lamborghini Infotainment System II with a 12.3” hi-res TFT instrument panel.
The latest addition to the Huracán family adopts the soft-top solution of a true Spyder, distinguishing the convertible from its coupe sibling through a unique profile, with roof both up and down. Opening and closing in just 17 seconds the lightweight soft top is efficiently stowed to maintain the Spyder’s perfect center of gravity and highlight the dynamic design of the open car.
With the roof down, two distinctive fins rise out of the folding roof casing to perfectly define the unique lines of the open car. Accenting the Huracán Spyder’s low, powerful appearance, the rear fins start at the seatbacks and continue the roofline to the rear, creating the Spyder’s flowing profile. The two fins contribute to optimizing airflow through the engine compartment, which is covered by a slatted engine bonnet specific to the Spyder.
An integrated duct reduces turbulence in the headroom during open top driving. With soft top both up and down the driver can also electronically open the rear window, which functions as a windshield when upright and highlights the V10 engine’s unique sound when down. Two removable lateral wind guards dampen lateral aerodynamic noise in the cabin, permitting conversations even at high speeds.
As it does in the rear-wheel drive Huracán coupe, the Spyder’s V10 5.2 l naturally aspirated, mid-mounted engine provides a 580 hp output at 8,000 rpm and 540 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm, with 75% of torque already available at 1,000 rpm.
The rear-wheel drive Spyder will be available in markets worldwide from January 2017, to complete the core Huracán product range. Lamborghini.
