Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder was presented at the Frankfurt International Motor Show 2015. The open top version of the Huracán LP 610-4 combines the power and performance of the coupé with the emotion of open-air driving
The Huracán Spyder combines the innovation, performance and appeal of the Huracán coupé, with new technologies and an added emotional dimension. Its predecessor, the Gallardo Spyder, was the best-selling open top model in Lamborghini’s history.
The new Huracán Spyder stands for inspiring technology, outstanding quality and breathtaking performance. Luxurious comfort with a pure and dynamic design ensures the convertible version of the Huracán is an iconic Lamborghini in its own right. Its lightweight, electrohydraulic soft top gives the new Lamborghini a distinctive presence with roof both open and closed, and maximum comfort for driver and passenger with uncompromising handling and performance.
The Huracán Spyder demonstrates the latest evolution of Lamborghini’s characteristic design language. It provides outstanding visual impact while adhering to the Lamborghini principle of ‘form follows function’: the Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder is as exciting to look at as it is to drive.
The most distinctive feature of the Huracán Spyder is its new soft top. The roof is available in three different colors: black, brown and red. Even with the roof up, the lines of the Spyder differ significantly from those of the coupé.
The lightweight soft top fits perfectly into the Spyder’s silhouette while up, and when down is hidden away into the most efficient space possible, maintaining the Spyder’s perfect center of gravity and revealing the athletic and equally powerful lines of the open car. Hidden automatic pop-up safety bars do not spoil the open car’s low silhouette.
Whether the soft top is up or down, the driver can also electronically open the rear window, which functions as a windshield when closed and when open, as an amplifier of the unique engine sound of the naturally aspirated V10.
Chassis and Powertrain
The standard-fit carbon-ceramic brake system provides the Huracán Spyder with immensely powerful and reliable deceleration. The front discs measure 380 millimeters (14.96 in) in diameter and, as an option, Lamborghini also offers painted brake calipers in a choice of colors.
There are lightweight aluminum double wishbone suspension arms at all four wheels.Lamborghini offers the optional LDS (Lamborghini Dynamic Steering) system,which adapts its ratio to the road speed, and magneto-rheological damper control, which changes the damper characteristics in accordance with driver preferences and driving style.
The three different programs “Strada”, “Sport” and “Corsa” impact the characteristics of the engine, sound, transmission, all-wheel drive and ESC handling system. Working in the background is the LPI system (Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale). Six sensors supply information on the car’s movement; the LPI then sends the information at lightning speed to all handling systems.
The naturally aspirated, long-stroke V10 engine delivers its full, engaging potential in the Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder, especially with the top down.
Offering the same technical qualities as in the Huracán Coupé, it is a sports car engine at its very best. It is extremely responsive, revs up to 8,700 rpm and composes a richly tuneful and unmistakable symphony of sound.
Thanks to the new stop start technology and cylinder on demand, i.e. the deactivation of one cylinder bank under partial load, its ECE standardized fuel consumption is a mere 12.3 liters per 100 km. The Huracán Spyder’s CO2 emissions have been reduced by 14% compared to the Gallardo Spyder, despite a significant increase in performance.
