The rear-wheel drive Huracán Spyder combines the lifestyle appeal of a convertible with the thrill of rear-wheel drive engineering. It features a newly designed front and rear with a dynamic but more aggressive look, distinguishing it from the four-wheel drive version. It features large front air intakes, exclusive Pirelli PZero tires and specially contoured steel brakes with aluminum brake disc pots.
With the roof down, two distinctive fins rise out of the folding roof-casing. Accenting the Huracán Spyder’s low, powerful appearance, the rear fins start at the seat backs and continue the roof line to the rear, giving it a flowing profile. The Huracán’s stiff hybrid aluminum and carbon fiber chassis is complemented by springs and anti-roll bars on double wishbone suspension, optimized for two-wheel drive. Weight distribution is biased 40% at the front/ 60% at the rear, reducing inertia on the front axle compared to the Huracán 4WD version.
The Lamborghini Doppia Frizione (LDF) seven-speed dual clutch architecture ensures the fastest gear changes and includes ‘launch control’ for maximum acceleration from a standing start. The electronic power steering and optional Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) are tuned specifically for the rear-wheel drive Spyder, ensuring maximum agility and control in every driving condition, depending on driving mode and speed.
The Spyder’s V10 5.2L mid-mounted engine provides a maximum 426 kW (580 hp) power output @8000 rpm and 540 Nm of torque @6500 rpm, with 75% of torque already available @1000 rpm.
As in all Huracán models, cylinder deactivation improves engine efficiency, reduces fuel consumption and reduces CO2. When full engine capacity is not required, five of the ten cylinders are temporarily deactivated by switching off one cylinder bank. When the driver accelerates, the system switches back instantaneously to ten-cylinder mode, with the changeover being virtually impossible to detect by the driver.
