The Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 Spyder has been unveiled at the 2015 IAA in Frankfurt, which is about five months ago, and only recently have the first cars been available during a global media event in the United States that allowed test drivers from the major car magazines to finally take the wheel of this amazing looking, open top V10 Raging Bull.
With the top down the Huracán's V10 engine sound is just music to your ears when driving the Spyder, even with the Anima switch in Strada the roar of that V10 engine is making the hair on your arms stand up ... switch to Corsa and the rumble behind you becomes even more intense, complete with a nice 'pop' when downshifting.
With the dual buttress design of the Huracán Spyder it might me a good idea to have the rear view camera installed as the standard interior rear view mirror is not really showing a lot, not even with the roof down in fact, note that the transformation from the original Coupé into this beautiful Spyder adds 100 kg to the scales.
The option list of the Huracán LP610-4 Spyder shows some interesting items for the interior, like a new style of stitching made available for the seats, door panels and parts of the new bulkhead (note the seats in the Spyder are not allowed to move as much back as on the Coupé to avoid rubbing the bulkhead with the back of the seat) ... an absolutely stunning hexagon pattern can be stitched on parts of the interior, complete with Huracán script on the seat and a nice Tricolore line.
That Tricolore line and script can also be ordered for the floor carpets in your Huracán LP610-4 Spyder, and if you really want your V10 to be noticed you might even go for the Forged Composite interior package ... very different and extremely special looking.
The special carbon fiber, lightweight sport seats are now an option on both the Huracán Coupé and the Spyder, perhaps not as comfortable as the usual seats, but they sure look amazing with those small pads added onto a carbon fiber frame ... add the Lamborghini branding package and you not only get a Lamborghini script on the dashboard in front of the passenger, the headrest on the seats show the famous Raging Bull crest.
The Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 Spyder has a top speed of 324 Km/h (201 Mph) ... both with the top up and down, at that speed you might think wind is a problem behind the steering wheel. But Lamborghini has his covered, between the two high buttress sections behind the seats there is a window that can be raised to avoid wind buffeting into the cabin ... and there are two additional fins to be mounted on the buttress to keep wind from entering the cabin from the side ... a very nice detail from Lamborghini that keeps the cabin free from wind intrusion up to 130 Km/h (80 Mph).
By adding strengthening structures to the front and rear of the car the Huracán Spyder is about 60% stiffer compared to the Gallardo Spyder and in the event of a crash where the V10 rolls over there are anti-roll bars that jump out in a fraction of a second to protect the occupants.
The very nice canvas top of the Huracán Spyder is available in three shades, standard black and optional in red or grey ... the transformation from closed to open takes 17 seconds after pressing the button on the central console near the handbrake, even while driving at speeds up to 50 Km/h (30 Mph).
If one thing was made obvious by the first road tests of the Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 Spyder it is the fact this open top Raging Bull hasn't lost any of her driving characteristics when compared against the closed Coupé Huracán ... taking away the roof has had next to no influence on the stiffness of this new V10 Bull making this a very desirable super car that offers the option of driving with the top down when the weather permits, and driving with the top up in the rain ... what more could you ask for?
