When it goes on sale next spring, the Huracán Spyder will offer three roof colors (red, brown, and black), 11 non-special paint colors, five interior trim packages, 17 interior colors, and endless more personalization options available through the Ad Personam customization program.
As expected, the Huracan Spyder is identical to the coupe from the waist down, with only the soft-top, the engine lid, and the rear haunches setting it apart.
The new soft-top is arguably the highlight of the Huracan Spyder, as it was designed with the utmost attention as to not alter the coupe’s aerodynamic shape too much.
The new soft-top is arguably the highlight of the Huracan Spyder, as it was designed with the utmost attention as to not alter the coupe’s aerodynamic shape too much. Of course, the Spyder differs significantly, especially in the rear section, but that’s mainly because of the added vents above the rear wheel arches rather than the shape of soft-top. With the top up, the Spyder’s roofline is pretty much identical to the coupe’s, a feature customers will most likely appreciate.
Available in three colors — black, brown, and red — the soft-top opens via a button positioned on the center console in only 17 seconds, but only at a driving speed of up to 31 mph. The driver can also electronically open the rear window whether the top is up or down.
Lambo says the top is hidden away into “the most efficient space possible, maintaining the Spyder’s perfect center of gravity.”
Moving over to the engine hood, the Huracan’s massive, louvered lid has been replaced by a new cover featuring two buttresses that connect to the seats’ headrests and two smaller vents toward the rear fascia. Though this design change is more about practicality than looks, I must say the Huracan Spyder is definitely sexier when viewed from above. Too bad only semi drivers will be able to notice that.
When it comes to V-10-powered supercars, there’s nothing like driving them with the top down. The Huracan Roadster will allow you to do just that and enjoy one of the industry’s most entertaining V-10 powerplants. Infinite headroom and access to a gorgeous soundtrack aside, the Roadster will bring you the same interior design and features as the standard model.
Highlights include a redesigned dashboard and center console with new knobs and switches, a 12.3-inch TFT display with all the necessary info, and large amounts of carbon fiber, high-quality leather, and Alcantara. Of course, the center console feature two additional buttons. One to open the soft-top and one to lower the rear window.
