2016 L.A. Auto Show | Lamborghini Huracán Spyder Blows its Top
As an automotive writer, you always love any car that lets you use one of these fancy A’s like this — “á.” And, it helps when said car looks like the Lamborghini Huracán Spyder.
Taking its top down at the 2016 L.A. Auto Show, the new Huracán Spyder is a proper, rear wheel drive Lamborghini with redesigned styling and the required crazed power of an Italian supercar. But, it’s big attraction is that convertible roof that allows for a little grand touring en route to the track.
Though sporting redesigned front and back ends, Huracán looks every bit the modern interpretation of a Lamborghini. The fins and scoops of the past gave way to chiseled edges and stealth tech vibes.
The real story of any monster machine from the Bologna-based automaker is what’s under the hood. The Huracán uses a naturally aspirated V10 engine producing 580 horsepower and an estimated top speed of 198.
What makes this Lamborghini fully unique in the family isn’t what it has but hat yo can take away from it. This is a true convertible that takes on a roadster’s soft-top personality. Unlike some supercar versions that allow the driver to remove the roof completely and set it aside, the Huracán Spyder’s roof opens and closes in 17 seconds at speeds of up to about 50 mph.
To add a Transformers touch to the car, two fins rise up from roof-casing to fill out the lines of the open top car. An integrated duct reduces turbulence in the headroom zone during open top driving.
An official release date and sale price for the new Huracán Spyder are still on their way from Lamborghini. Until they árrive, you’ll háve to be sátisfied with using that cool Euro “á”in everything you write to keep yourself entertáined.
