About 13 months ago, Lamborghini Huracan Performante came out in all its 640-hp glory. At the time, you just knew a Spyder would come eventually, and here it is: Lamborghini’s latest jaw-dropper, the Performante Spyder.
Lamborghini says the car “transcends performance expectations, evoking an all-new, exciting open-air experience.” In other words, once we get our hands on one, we expect every bit of the coupe’s razor-sharp reflexes, minus the roof. The Performante weighs 77 pounds less than your garden-variety Huracan Spyder and shares the Performante Coupe’s normally aspirated, 640-hp V10. Sixty-two mph arrives in 3.1 seconds and the car boasts a 202-mph top speed.
The Spyder uses Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva system
Like the Coupe, the Spyder uses the company’s patented Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) system. That’s an active aero system that electrically actuates flaps in the front and rear spoilers. It adjusts airflow on the fly as needed. The company says the power roof opens in 17 seconds at speeds up to 30 mph. Suspension, steering, all-wheel drive — all have been updated for the unique needs of the Spyder.
The Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder goes on sale this summer with a base $308,859 sticker.
