The open-topped two-seater will go on sale next spring, priced at £205,000. It is claimed to be 40% stiffer than its predecessor, the Gallardo Spyder, and will offer 50% more downforce.
Power comes from the same naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10 engine as the fixed-head Huracán and the Spyder gets an identical 602bhp and 413lb ft of torque.
Despite an increase in the car’s dry weight to 1542kg with a weight distribution of 47% at the front and 53% at the rear. Lamborghini says the Huracán Spyder can reach 62mph from a standing start in 3.4sec (compared with the coupé’s 3.2sec) and go on to a top speed of more than 202mph.
New features for the Spyder include the addition of cylinder-on-demand technology and an engine stop-start system, which will also be included on 2016-model-year versions of the Huracán coupé. CO2 emissions have improved by 14% compared with the Gallardo Spyder's.
The car’s four-wheel drive system has also been reworked, as has its clutch.
The Huracán Spyder features a folding soft-top made from lightweight fabric. It can be folded away in less than 17 seconds at up to 30mph.
