The Huracan has been with us for quite some time now, and has been setting pace with the benchmark provided by its predecessor the Gallardo. Of course we are all familiar with the all-wheel drive, seven-speed dual-clutch transmission s well as the ridiculous 602-hp 5.2-liter V10, which Lamborghini does not plan on ditching anytime soon.However, the sprint up to 62 mph takes 3.4 seconds, which is approximately 0.2 second longer than the coupe-but who cares, look at it!
The new drop head is so similar to the coupe, that the aluminum-and-carbon “hybrid chassis,” which is a relative of the Audi R8, is for the most part unchanged from the coupe. When Lamborghini was developing the Huracan, they knew that a convertible option would inevitably be debuted, so in keeping with that, torsional stiffness is up 40 percent compared to the Gallardo Spyder, which ultimately means you are not sacrificing pure driving pleasure for the show off-ness of a vert. Lamborghini worked hard to ensure the coupe’s angular, seductive profile was sustained with the top up or down.
The downside of the new Spyder is in its weight: 3,399 pounds versus 3,135 pounds for the standing coupe. Much of that +220 pounds is derived from the electro-hydraulically actuated three-layer soft top and its necessary operating hardware, which includes pop-up safety bars that fill the role of bulky roll bars should you flip it over, which, as we know happens to a lot of premature exotic owners.
