Since its launch a few years ago, the Lamborghini Huracan was destined to be a versatile car. Like the Gallardo before it, it was inevitable that a plethora of variations and special editions would be made available. So far, the Huracan family consists of the “standard” coupe, the Spyder, and a rear-wheel drive variant of the coupe. The latest addition to the lineup combines the Spyder’s drop-top capabilities with the oversteering tendencies of the RWD model. This is the Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2 Spyder.
This Huracan is powered by the same 5.2 liter V10 found in every other Huracan. While Lamborghini has a tendency to slightly detune their engines for their rear-wheel drive offerings, the LP580-2 still produces a whopping 572 horsepower. Despite being the slowest Lamborghini currently on sale, it’s still capable of 0-60 in 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 198 miles per hour. The conversion to a convertible body style and lack of all-wheel drive grip contribute to this, but this model is not aimed at buyers looking for sheer speed. This car is for fun.
The Spyder borrows the redesigned body panels, including the angular front bumper, from the rear-wheel drive coupe. This, in combination with the aggressively designed engine cover of the Spyder, creates a striking car that could only come from Sant’Agata’s finest. With the top down, drivers will experience another quality that’s distinctly Lamborghini: the roar of its naturally aspirated V10. This combination of looks, noise, power, and oversteer creates a car that will surely excite critics and buyers alike.
