Blue wonder – Lamborghini Huracán Spyder to debut at Frankfurt
There’s a second blue wonder joining the new Ferrari 488 Spider at Frankfurt, in the shape of Lamborghini’s new baby LP610-4 Huracán Spyder. As expected, the open version of the 10-cylinder powerhouse is just as sharp, styling-wise. And thanks to the naturally aspirated, 610HP 5.2-litre V10, 0-62mph is dispatched in just 3.4 seconds, almost identical to the coupé. Top speed is now 325km/h. In contrast to the Ferrari, Lamborghini has stuck with an electrohydraulic fabric roof, which will be available in red and brown, as well as black. Meanwhile, those fins behind the seats help to cool the engine bay.
We’d be only too happy to go for a sunny September drive (straight off the motor show stand, if we had to), perhaps with the new 488 Spider along for comparison. Deliveries of the Lamborghini will commence in Spring 2016, priced at 186,450 euros excluding taxes.
