The Spyder’s roof can be lowered in 17 seconds; costs about Rs 37 lakh more than the Coupe.
Lamborghini has launched the Huracan Evo Spyder in India, with prices starting from Rs 4.1 crore. The drop-top version of the Huracan Evo joins its coupe sibling that went on sale in India in Ferbruary at Rs 3.73 crore (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The Spyder shares its mechanicals with the Huracan Evo Coupe. It is powered by the same 5.2-litre, naturally aspirated V10 engine that puts out 640hp and 600Nm, and is paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The Spyder also gets the Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI) chassis control system, rear-wheel steering and torque vectoring system like its sibling. Lamborghini claims a 0-100kph time of just 3.1sec – 0.2sec slower than the coupé – while top speed is identical at 323kph.
The Spyder’s soft-top roof mechanism makes it 120kg heavier than the Huracan Evo Coupe. The roof utilises an electro-hydraulic setup which helps lower it in 17sec, at speeds of up to 50kph. Automatic pop-up rollover bars are placed behind the seats, while the rear window can be retracted electrically, regardless of whether the roof is up or down. The convertible also features revised styling at the rear deck to accommodate the folding roof, and a revised engine cover as well. Buyers can also customise the Spyder as per their taste, with Lamborghini offering plenty of optional extras.
As for rivals, the Huracan Evo Spyder competes with the Ferrari 488 Spider and the Audi R8 Spyder.
2019 has been a good year for the Italian manufacturer in India. Apart from launching the two iterations of the Huracan Evo, Lamborghini India alsodelivered its 50th Urus, and the only Aventador SVJ 63 in the country.
