Last year, Lamborghini launched its replacement for the Gallardo – the 2015 Huracan LP610-4 during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. One thing that was obvious then, was that we would soon get to see a number of versions of this car, including a soft top convertible. Now, a new digital rendering of the Lamborghini Huracan Spyder has been circulating on the internet, giving us an insight into how the two-seater convertible supercar might look like.
The Huracan is built around a completely new platform with a new type of hybrid carbon fibre and aluminium construction and the Spyder is expected to use a stiffened version of this same chassis to compensate for the lack of roof. Powering the Huracan Spyder is the same 5.2-litre V10 engine from the Gallardo, which has been upgraded to deliver 610bhp and 560Nm of torque. This engine will be mated to a new seven-speed dual clutch transmission, called Lamborghini Doppia Frizione (LDF), with power going to all four wheels.
As in previous convertible versions of Lamborghini supercars, the Huracan Spyder will look identical to its hard top sibling, with the exception of the roof and some minor alterations to the rear. The soft top might add a few extra kilograms to the overall weight of the car, though this can hardly be of any significance in a car like the Huracan. Reports suggest that the Huracan Spyder is still in its development phase and the production model might not be unveiled before early 2016.
