Lamborghini will be launching the Huracan Evo Spyder in a few hours, the soft-top iteration of the Huracan Evo launched earlier this year. Carrying all the same updates as that car did, including the tweaked 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 engine which now outputs 640PS and 600Nm torque, as well as all-wheel steering and the Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI) active vehicle dynamics system.
The Evo Spyder is a couple of tenths off the sprint times of its coupe sibling, with a 0-100kmph time of 3.1s, owing to the 120kg of extra weight (in the roof mechanism and chassis strengthening) it carries around, tipping the scales at 1,522kg (dry). Lamborghini still claim the same 325kmph top speed for the Evo Spyder, and the bonus of being able to drop the roof will likely command a slight premium over the coupe's Rs 3.73 crore (ex-showroom) price tag. Stay tuned to OVERDRIVE for the updates right from the showroom floor.
Lamborghini has finally launched the Huracan EVO Spyder for an ex-showroom cost of Rs 4.1 Cr.
Another record year of sales for Lamborghini A-PAC, with the Urus accounting for 74 per cent of the pie.
Lamborghini India inaugurates a new showroom in Prabhadevi, with Sharad Agrawal, head LamborghiniIndia, and Matteo Ortenzi, CEO A-PAC operations in attendance. Also, coming up, the launch of the Huracan EVO Spyder!
The Lamborghini Huracan EVO Spyder is under wraps, for now!
Sibling Huracan Evo awaits the launch of the Spyder
The electronics package, LDVI, as seen on the Evo marks the first time predictive logic has been used on a Lamborghini. The system oversees a network of sensors that monitor the car’s roll, pitch and yaw rates to instantaneously adapt damping. The Evo Spyder will also get the all-wheel steer system.
The Huracan Evo Spyder will also get the updated cabin as on the Evo, the highlight being the new 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system, with multi-finger gesture control.
It also gets the 5.2-litre V10 (in the same state of tune as the Huracan Performante) making 640PS@8,000rpm and 600Nm@6,500rpm mated to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, with power going to all four wheels. This engine, as seen in the Gallardo previously, has been updated with titanium intake valves and a lightweight exhaust system end-to-end
The folding soft-top on the Evo Spyder can be raised or lowered at speeds of up to 50kmph, and takes 17 seconds to complete the act.
The Huracan Evo Spyder inherits the updates of its coupe sibling, including new bumpers, integrated rear wing, optimised side air intakes, underbody and repositioned exhaust exits to help increase downforce and aerodynamic efficiency, updates as seen on 2017’s track-oriented Huracan Performante
Remember, the Huracan was first launched in 2014, after a reveal at the Geneva Motor Show the same year. Fittingly, the Huracan Evo was revealed at the same venue this year, with the Evo Spyder following later.
The Huracan Evo is essentially the mid-cycle refresh of the baby Lambo, which got subtle aesthetic tweaks, more downforce, power and electronics to rein it all in.
