Lamborghini Huracán Evo Spyder

Lamborghini presents at the Geneva International Motor Show with the new Huracán Evo Spyder the logical consequence of the already shown facelifted Coupé of the second generation of the mid-engined sports car. Of course, the new convertible takes over the comprehensive technical innovations with which the closed variant already shines. Similar to the Coupé, the high-revving naturally aspirated 10-cylinder engine with 640 hp derived from the Huracán Performante. This accelerates the Evo Spyder in only 3.1 seconds to 62 mph and up to a topspeed of 325 kph (202 mph), the same value as the closed model. The Spyder also takes over the central driving dynamics system ‘Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata’ (LDVI), which optimally adjusts the vehicle to any driving situation with data processing in real time and torque vectoring on all four driven wheels. Furthermore, the driver can select different setups from the comfort-oriented road mode (Strada) to the race track mode (Corsa).

The Huracán Evo Coupé already shines with significantly revised aerodynamics and a five times higher aerodynamic efficiency compared to the first generation Huracán. Through fine precision, the development engineers in Sant’Agata Bolognese have succeeded in implementing this progress into the Spyder and also optimizing it for open-top driving. The redesigned front not only makes for an even sportier appearance, but also provides more downforce through the front splitter with integrated wing. The wider air inlets have the typical Y-shape of the Lamborghini design language. In the side view, the characteristic lines in the hexagon design are noticeable at the window line and around the new side air intakes, while at the rear the higher mounted tailpipes are reminiscent of the Huracán Performante or the Super Trofeo racing cars. At the rear part of the bodywork, the aerodynamic subtleties of the convertible version can be seen. An optimized rear spoiler, for example, ensures improved air flow and the fins with integrated air ducts, which are recognizable on the bonnet when the roof is open, reduce air turbulences around the occupants’ heads. The electro-hydraulically operated fabric soft top forms a harmonious line with the body and disappears on the touch of a button within 17 seconds and up to a speed of 50 kph behind the passengers.

The interior of the Huracán Evo Spyder largely corresponds to the Coupé version with the new Evo-typical materials such as Alcantara and leather with stitchings and details that are color-coordinated with the body color. Next to that, Lamborghini offers a range of style packages and lightweight materials such as Carbon Forged Composite or the patented Carbon Skin. Further customizing of the Huracán Evo Spyder is available from Ad Personam, the appropriate department within the factory. Striking in comparison to the first generation model is the new 8.4-inch HMI touch screen display in the center console directly above the start button, via which the driver can control connectivity functions at the touch of a finger. In addition to the operation of various vehicle functions such as seats, air conditioning and the real-time status of the LDVI system, it also gives vehicle occupants access to all infotainment systems such as Apple CarPlay with smartphone integration. A multimedia system includes connected navigation and entertainment such as web radio and video player with intuitive user interface via voice control.

For the Huracán Evo Spyder Lamborghini presents a new shade of the popular green paint, named ‘Verde Selvans’, a four-coat paint in iconic green, as the manufacturer describes this creation. For the world premiere in Geneva, the new convertible rolls onto the stage with 20-inch Aesir alloy wheels with Pirelli P Zero tires. The first customers have to wait until spring 2019 before they can receive their new Spyder. Prices start at 202,437 € plus taxes.
