Lamborghini Huracan RWD Spyder launched for Rs 3.45 crore

By Team Evo India

Published on :

After the Huracan, Lamborghini have finally launched the convertible Huracan RWD Spyder in India at Rs 3.45 crore (ex-showroom). This is the fourth Huracan variant, after the Huracan Coupe LP610-4, the LP610-4 Spyder and the RWD Huracan Coupe.

The biggest difference between this car and the coupe Huracan is obviously, the roof. The solid roof on the coupe has been chopped off and replaced with a retractable soft-top. The roof takes 17 seconds to retract, and can do so on the go at speeds of up to 50kmph. When the roof is down, the glass panes behind the window can be slid down as well for an uninterrupted open top motoring experience. The roof itself is available in three colours — black, brown and red. A fair bit has been done to keep the occupants comfortable while the roof is down. Ducts in the rear fins reduce turbulence in the cabin during open-top driving. It also has two removable wind braces to prevent lateral aerodynamic inconsistencies and minimise wind noise to the cabin, allowing you to have a conversation. If the wail of the engine allows you to, that is.

The rest is similar to the the regular rear-wheel drive Huracan. Right behind the driver sits a 5.2-litre V10 engine, identical to the one on the coupe and in the same state of tune. Power output rests at 580bhp while it sends 540Nm to the rear wheels through a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. The lack of all-wheel drive and slight drop in power has affected the acceleration though  — 100kmph comes up 0.2 seconds slower than the all-wheel drive spyder at 3.6 seconds but the top speed is now 319kmph instead of 324kmph.
