We knew it was going to happen, but here it is anyways: the 2019 Lamborghini Huracán Performante Spyder. Yet another version of the good ol’ Huracán, just without a roof and much lighter.
Remember the Huracán Performante? With more power and weighing 90 pounds less than a regular Huracán? Well, this Spyder version is just that, but open on top.
Engine is still the same, the 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10 shooting the Spyder forward from zero to 62 mph in a claimed 3.1 seconds. Top speed is just over 200 mph. Power comes to 640 horses with a 3,322-pound dry weight (1,507 kg). Lamborghini says that it’s 77 pounds (35 kg) lighter than the original Huracán Spyder.
And like the hardtop Performante, the Spyder also has the patented active aero system, called Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva. Lamborghini assures us that the soft top doesn’t at all get in the way of this system. And you know what? Thank freaking God for that. Can’t have my hatred of roofs mess with my love of active aero.
That roof opens in 17 seconds and can be operated while the car is traveling at speeds of up to 30 mph. Movable fins emerge when the roof is down which contain an integrated duct that helps with wind noise and turbulence while driving.
I feel like that kind of... defeats the purpose of a convertible? But who am I to say.
Deliveries start this summer with a price tag of $308,859.
