Lamborghini gives Huracan the 'Spyder' treatment

The Gallardo may have become rather long in the tooth by the time it was sent to the great automotive retirement home, but that longevity just allowed the Spyder version to become the largest selling Lamborghini of all time.

Logically then, it was only a matter of time until the guys at Sant’Agata took a blowtorch to the Huracan and released the Spyder version you see above.

Gone are the days of a fiddly, impossible-to-put-up-in-the-rain, canopy, replaced by a new electrically operated version that will fold away in just 17 seconds at speeds of up to 31mph.

As well as a removable lid, the new Spyder also sprouts two fins behind driver’s and passenger’s heads. It’s also put on a few pounds, up to 1542kg, but the Huracan Spyder still manages the sprint to 62mph in 3.4 seconds. That’s just 0.2seconds shy of the coupé.

Inside, it’s the same stuff as the standard Huracan, but Lamborghini were hardly going to mess with a winning formula too much where they?
