The Lamborghini Huracan was launched in 2015 as the successor to the famous Lamborghini Gallardo. The Huracan made a debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show but its a first on South African soil.
The all new drop top Huracan looks immensely beautiful from every possible angle. Weighing in at only 1542kg, the Spyder still has its 602hp 5.2 Liter V10 engine with the same seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, and the very same all-wheel-drive system. Yes, that means that the Huracan Spyder has the same power as the Coupe.
That doesn’t mean that Lamborghini only chopped off the roof because they made vast improvements. The Huracan V10’s formula has got the addition of stop-start and cylinder deactivation, the latter of which shuts down one of the Huracan’s cylinder banks entirely, leaving the engine to run as an inline-five. These fuel-saving bits are also being added to the coupe for 2016.
The Huracan Spyder has a
- Naturally aspirated V10 engine.
- 4WD powertrain.
- Lamborghini Doppia Frizione (LDF) 7-speed dual clutch gearbox.
- ANIMA (Adaptive Network Intelligent MAnagement) to switch between Strada, Sport and Corsa settings.
- Hybrid aluminium and carbon structure.
- Ultra lightweight soft top that opens in 18 seconds at speeds up to 50 km/h.
Lamborghini introduced a whole new level to customisation for the Huracan Spyder. The top can be ordered in black, brown or red, and the panel right above the windshield can be either left with the Huracán emblem or personalized. Additionally, buyers can choose from a palette of 11 non-special paint colors, five interior trim packages, 17 interior colors, from several alloy wheel designs, and endless more personalisation options available through the Ad Personam customisation program.
If I could spec my Huracan Spyder it would definitely be in this light blue with black and blue interior.
Thanks to Lamborghini SA for having me.
