Differing little from its sibling aside from the soft top roof that can be opened and closed in 17 seconds at speeds up to 50 km/h, the LP580--2 Spyder uses the same 5.2-litre V10 developing 426 kW and 540 N.m of torque.
Although slightly down on the standard's Huracan's 449 kW and 560 N.m, the Spyder is claimed to be only 0.2 seconds slower from 0-100 km/h (3.6 sec) than its four-wheel drive equivalent, with its top speed being rated at 319 km/h.
Lamborghini's seven-speed dual-clutch box is again the sole transmission offered with Launch Control also being included for maximum acceleration right from the get-go. Available as an optional extra, the Spyder can be have with Lamborghini's Dynamic Steering, while the electric power steering itself has also been sharpened further.
Sales are expected to start in January next year with the Spyder slotting in between the two-and-four-wheel drive Coupe in the Huracan line-up.
