Lamborghini Huracán EVO Spyder is here and about to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show 2019: open-air exhilaration for even more amplified sensations. Joining its counterpart launched earlier this year as the second model in the V10 Huracán EVO line-up, this brand new super sports car is synonymous with breathtaking performance and presence.
The Huracán EVO Spyder adopts the next-generation vehicle dynamics control and aerodynamics developed for the Coupé. With a 5.2-liter naturally aspirated Lamborghini V10 engine outputting 640 CV (470 kW), this masterpiece accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3.1 seconds and from 0-200 km/h in 9.3 seconds, and has a top speed of 325 km/h. Braking from 100 km/h to 0 is achieved in just 32.2 meters.
The emotion of open-air driving meets the prowess of the Huracán EVO’s evolutionary technologies. Rear-wheel steering and a four-wheel torque vectoring system are controlled centrally by Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI), the central processing unit that integrates and controls every aspect of the car’s set-up and dynamic behavior, anticipating the next move and needs of the driver, and interpreting all this through a feedforward logic.
The Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI) version 2.0, launched on the EVO coupé, is a comprehensive set of accelerators and gyroscope sensors located in the car’s center of gravity, monitoring real-time lateral, longitudinal and vertical acceleration, as well as roll, pitch and yaw rate. The magnetorheological suspension, also upgraded to version 2.0, adapts damping instantaneously following inputs from the LPI. The new advanced traction control system together with enhanced all-wheel drive and torque vectoring, allows traction to be directed to a single wheel as required. The modified Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) provides higher responsiveness in corners while requiring the lowest steering angles. Coupled with rear-wheel steering, agility is ensured at low speed, with the maximum stability in high-speed cornering and under severe braking.
Driving the Huracán EVO Spyder can be as refined or exciting as the driver desires. The preferred driving mode is selected via the ANIMA system, with STRADA especially calibrated via the LDVI system for road-driving comfort. In SPORT mode, the Huracán EVO Spyder takes on a fun and exciting persona, with the ability to drift. In CORSA it demonstrates its Performante heritage: race-track ready and exhilarating, for the most extreme driving environments.
The aerodynamic superiority of the Huracán EVO continues with the Spyder. With the roof either up or down (in just 17 seconds), the aerodynamic competency of the EVO Spyder sustains not only the most dynamic handling and performance but also the comfort of the occupants. Cabin airflow is minimized and the occupants are assured a quiet cockpit environment.
Like the EVO coupé, a new front bumper gives the car a low, assertive personality with aerodynamic efficiency improved via the front splitter and enlarged air intakes. At the rear, the Huracán EVO Spyder adopts the new rear design evocative of naked racing bikes and inspired by Lamborghini Huracán race cars, with the twin outlets of the new sports exhaust system positioned high in the rear bumper. At the upper end of the tail, an integrated, slotted spoiler provides enhanced airflow, clearly highlighting the car’s aerodynamic abilities. The underbody has been shaped to maximize aerodynamic efficiency.
The side profile of the Huracán EVO Spyder differs significantly from the coupé, but is equally dynamic with the roof up or down. The lightweight soft top carves the top line of the Spyder’s silhouette while up, and is hidden away when down in the most efficient space possible, revealing the athletic and equally powerful lines of the open car. Automatic pop-up safety bars are hidden away.
The Huracán EVO Spyder is presented in Verde Selvans and the interior options include new EVO trim in a mix of Alcantara and leather, with stitching and trim details to match the body color. A number of style packages are offered as well as lightweight materials such as Carbon Forged Composite and Lamborghini’s patented Carbon Skin. Lamborghini’s comprehensive customization program, Ad Personam, allows virtually limitless personalization of the new car. The EVO Spyder sports the new 20” Aesir rims with Pirelli P Zero tires.
The new 8.4” HMI touchscreen, located in the center console just above the start button, puts connectivity at the driver’s fingertips with multi-finger gesture control. A multimedia system incorporates connected navigation and entertainment including web radio and video player, and the intuitive interface enables voice commands.
