Open-top Huracán EVO Spyder joins its coupé counterpart, which was launched earlier this year as the second model in the V10 Huracán EVO line-up
Lamborghini India has launched its Huracán EVO Spyder V10 supercar, with prices starting from Rs 4.09 crore, ex-showroom, and has also inaugurated a new showroom in Mumbai. The new Lamborghini Huracán EVO Spyder is said to feature a design that translates into open-air exhilaration, being equipped with an electrohydraulic, lightweight soft top.
The Huracán EVO Spyder is powered by a 5.2 l, naturally-aspirated Lamborghini V10 engine that deliver maximum power of 640 hp at 8,000 rpm, with 600 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. The engine has been uprated for higher power output, and incorporates titanium intake valves, the company noted. The car has a dry weight of 1,542 kg, achieving a weight-to-power ratio of 2.41 kg/hp, thereby helping to accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3.1 seconds, with a top speed of 325 km/h.
The supercar cabriolet is equipped with Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI), which is the technological innovation that coordinates a complex and sophisticated system for the management of driving dynamics. The rear-wheel steering and a four-wheel torque vectoring system are controlled centrally by the Central Processing Unit, integrating and controlling every aspect of the car’s set-up and dynamic behaviour, explained Lamborghini. The LDVI system processes data in real-time, monitoring and analysing external conditions through its active suspension and all-wheel drive. It also recognises driver input through the steering wheel, braking, acceleration, gear and driving mode selected, and makes the car respond according to their preferences.
The Huracán EVO Spyder also features next-generation vehicle dynamics in the form of the Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI) version 2.0, which was launched on the EVO coupé. It comprises of a set of accelerators and gyroscope sensors located in the car’s centre of gravity, monitoring real-time lateral, longitudinal and vertical accelerations, as well as roll, pitch, and yaw rate. This provides accurate real-time updates of the car’s behaviour, the company stated.
The supercar’s magnetorheological suspension, also upgraded to version 2.0, instantaneously adapts the damping following inputs from the LPI. In addition, the new advanced traction control system, together with enhanced all-wheel drive and torque vectoring, allows traction to be directed to a single wheel as required. The company noted that the modified Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) provides higher responsiveness in corners while requiring the lowest steering angles. This, coupled with rear-wheel steering, ensures agility at low speed and maximum stability in high-speed cornering and under severe braking.
Lamborghini said that the Huracán EVO Spyder is equipped with an Electronic Power Steering (EPS) system that adapts to all driving styles to guarantee the best steering assistance, both on track and on the road. The EPS is also supported by the LDS system, which provides a dynamic variation of the steering ratio, changing according to the vehicle’s dynamic conditions. The preferred driving mode is selected via the ANIMA system, with STRADA especially calibrated via the LDVI system for road-driving comfort, it added.
The EVO Spyder’s design was carefully engineered to improve aerodynamics, noted Lamborghini. It said that 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 supercar adopts the new rear design evocative of naked race bikes and inspired by Lamborghini Huracán race cars, with the twin exhaust outlets positioned high in the bumper. The top-end of the tail features an integrated, slotted spoiler provides enhanced air flow, emphasising the car’s aerodynamic abilities. The underbody has also been shaped to maximise aerodynamic efficiency.
The side profile of the Huracán EVO Spyder differs significantly from the coupé, with automatic pop-up safety bars being hidden away. The driver can electronically open the rear window, which functions as a windshield when closed and when open, amplifies the engine sound. The electrohydraulic, lightweight, soft top is said to open via a button positioned on the central tunnel in 17 seconds up to a driving speed of 50 km/h. Furthermore, an integrated duct between the fins reduces turbulence in the headroom during open-top driving. The car is fitted with new 20-inch Aesir rims, with Pirelli P Zero tires, and has a large of customisation options overall.
The interior of the Huracán EVO Spyder comes with a new human-machine interface in the form of an 8.4-inch touchscreen system built into the central tunnel. This system governs multiple car functions, status of the LDVI system in real-time, as well as all infotainment. The system offers advanced connectivity never seen before in Huracán, matched with a new telemetry system that features two cameras to further improve driving skills, noted the company. The interior finishes are made with materials including leather, alcantara, carbon skin and carbon fibre.
Sharad Agarwal, Head, Lamborghini India, said the Huracán EVO has received a positive response from the India market since its launch was announced earlier this year. The Huracán EVO Spyder joins its coupé counterpart as the second model in the V10 Huracán EVO line-up, he added. Agarwal noted that the supercar is synonymous with open-air exhilaration for even more amplified sensation and breath-taking performance.
The brand is strong and highly acclaimed worldwide, and the new dealership environment is a tangible demonstration of that, noted Matteo Ortenzi, CEO, Automobili Lamborghini Asia Pacific. He said that Lamborghini is also thrilled to expand its footprint in the Indian market through the launch of the Huracán EVO Spyder.
