Lamborghini presents the new Lamborghini Huracán EVO Spyder at Geneva Motor Show. The open-top car joins its coupé counterpart as the second model in the V10 Huracán EVO line-up. The Spyder adopts the next-generation vehicle dynamic control and aerodynamics developed for the coupé. With the 5.2 liter naturally-aspirated Lamborghini V10 engine uprated for a higher power output and incorporating Titanium intake valves.
The Huracán EVO Spyder outputs 640 hp at 8,000 rpm with 600 Nm of torque delivered at 6,500 rpm. With a dry weight of 1,542 kg the car reaches a weight-to-power ratio of 2.41 kg/hp. The Lamborghini accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3.1 seconds and from 0-200 km/h in 9.3 seconds. Braking from 100 km/h to 0 is achieved in just 32.2 m, with a top speed of 325 km/h.
The Lamborghini Huracán EVO’s evolutionary technologies
The Huracán EVO Spyder combines the option of open-air driving with 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 integrating and controlling every aspect of the car’s set-up. And dynamic behavior, anticipating the next move and needs of the driver and interpreting this through a ‘feed forward logic’.
Processing data in real time, the LDVI system monitors and analyses external conditions through its active suspension and all-wheel drive. It also recognizes the driver’s intentions through steering wheel, braking, acceleration, the gear and driving mode selected. Precise inputs are given to the vehicle dynamic system. Creating a super-agile and responsive car with unparalleled level of control. The car doesn’t just react, but predicts the best driving set-up for the next moment.
The new advanced traction control system in the new Lamborghini Huracán EVO Spyder
Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI) version 2.0, launched on the EVO coupé, is a comprehensive set of accelerators and gyroscope sensors. They are located in the car’s center of gravity. And are monitoring real-time lateral, longitudinal and vertical accelerations, as well as roll, pitch and yaw rate. The magneto rheological suspension, also upgraded to version 2.0, instantaneously adapts the damping following inputs from the LPI. The new advanced traction control system allows traction to be directed to a single wheel as required. Together with enhanced all-wheel drive and torque vectoring.
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 maximum stability in high-speed cornering and under severe braking.
In CORSA the Lamborghini Huracán EVO Spyder demonstrates its Performante heritage
Driving the Huracán EVO Spyder is as refined or exciting as the occupants desire. The preferred driving mode is selected via the ANIMA system. With STRADA especially calibrated via the LDVI system for road-driving comfort. In SPORT it adopts a fun and exciting persona, with the ability to drift. In CORSA the Huracán EVO Spyder demonstrates its Performante heritage: race-track ready and exhilarating, for the most extreme driving environments.
A new front bumper gives the new Lamborghini a low, assertive personality with aerodynamic efficiency improved
The aerodynamic superiority of the Huracán EVO is continued with the Spyder. With roof either up or down, the aerodynamic competency of the EVO Spyder sustains the most dynamic handling and performance. But also the comfort of the occupants. Cabin airflow is minimised and the occupants 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 race 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 air flow. Clearly emphasizing the car’s aerodynamic abilities. The underbody has been shaped to maximize aerodynamic efficiency.
“The Huracán EVO Spyder incorporates all the performance and next-generation vehicle control features of the EVO coupé. With its own unique personality and a driving excitement that only an open-top car can offer.”Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Automobili Lamborghini
The Lamborghini Huracán EVO Spyder’s unique aspirated engine sound
The side profile of the Huracán EVO Spyder differs significantly from the coupé. But is equally dynamic with 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.
Whether the roof is up or down, the driver can electronically open the rear window. Which functions as a windshield when closed. And when open, amplifies the song of the EVO Spyder’s unique aspirated engine sound.
The electrohydraulic, lightweight soft top opens via a button in just 17 seconds. And opens up to a driving speed of 50 km/h (31 mph). As the roof silently lowers, two fins rise upwards out of the folding roof casing. Once in place they continue the line to the rear, enhancing the car’s low, dynamic appearance. An integrated duct between the fins reduces turbulence in the headroom during open top driving.
Lamborghini’s comprehensive customization program, Ad Personam
The Huracán EVO Spyder is presented in Verde Selvans. An iconic new Lamborghini four-layer green. And one of an enhanced range of colors and trims available for the Huracán EVO coupé and Spyder. Interior options include new EVO trim in Alcantara and leather mix. With stitching and trim details to match the body tone. 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 puts connectivity at the driver’s fingertips, with multi-finger gesture control. Governing car functions including seats, climate and the status of the LDVI system in real-time. It also puts all infotainment, such as Apple CarPlay with smartphone integration, at the cabin occupants’ disposal. A multimedia system incorporates connected navigation and entertainment. Including web radio and video player, with the intuitive interface enabling voice commands.
