Geneva Auto Show 2018: The Lamborghini Huracán Performante Spyder

We’ve said it before and if we’re lucky enough, we’ll keep on saying it for many more years: we are living in a fantastic automotive era.

When Lamborghini unveiled the Huracán Performante only a year ago, rich people that love to flash and go fast broke out their check books. With its naturally-aspirated 5.2-litre V10 engine now tuned to the tune of 640-horsepower at 8,000 rpm and fresh from a considerable 90-lb weight loss, the promise of speed and noises could not come fast enough.

Those that paused if only for a moment now have the option of getting the drop-dead sexy Spyder version of the Performante. Engine specs are identical, including the 443 lb.-ft. of torque at 6,500 rpm, but given that weight is up slightly over the Coupe (still about 80 lbs lighter than the regular Huracán Spyder), the car’s kind of slower…

The “slower” Huracán Performante Spyder is, as always, AWD and will reach 100 km/h in 3.1 seconds, 200 km/h in 9.3 seconds and top out at 325 km/h. The lightweight, electrohydraulic roof requires just 17 seconds to open up and will do so at speeds of up to 50 km/h.

The car is insanely gorgeous and, like the Coupe, borrows design cues from the Super Trofeo race cars. The Lamborghini Huracán Performante Spyder arrives this summer with a US base price of just short of $310,000.
