Lambo's follow-up to its updated Huracan coupe makes its first appearance at Geneva
5 March 2019

Lamborghini's new Huracán Evo Spyder has had its debut at the Geneva motor show

The convertible supercar follows the launch of the Huracán Evo, an updated and more powerful Huracán coupé, late last year. It features the same 631bhp 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10, resulting in a 0-62mph time in 3.1 seconds – 0.2 sec slower than the hard-top model.

The 201mph top speed is identical to that of the coupé, however, despite the Spyder's 120kg weight penalty. Much of that extra weight is down to the car's soft-top mechanism, which uses an electro-hydraulic set-up to lower the roof in 17 seconds at speeds of up to 31mph.

Automatic pop-up rollover bars are hidden behind the seats, while the rear window can be retracted electrically whether the roof is up or down, allowing the car's engine note to be heard more clearly by those in the cabin. 

The Huracán Evo's range of new chassis technologies, including rear-wheel steering and four-wheel torque vectoring, carry over unchanged to the Spyder. Lamborghini says the car's aerodynamic prowess, with more than five times the downforce and aero efficiency of the old Huracán, is also maintained, while cabin airflow is said to be "minimised" to assure a "quiet cockpit environment" - when the V10 isn't on song, of course.

This is a very cool car, and each to their own, but I'd take an SVJ over one of these any day of the week.

Beast of a car

Sad that the people who buy these things never go faster than 55mph along the inside lane of the motorway
