Lamborghini has revealed the new Huracan Spyder RWD at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show. It’s a rear-wheel drive Huracan with a convertible roof and that makes for an exciting recipe.
Lamborghini has dropped the complicated LP580-2 from its nomenclature for a more simple badge. Now, it’s officially called the Lamborghini Huracan rear-wheel drive Spyder.
The new Lamborghini Huracan Spyder RWD received a mildly refreshed exterior. It features revised front and rear bumpers and aerodynamic tweaks to make the car more stable at high speeds. The roof takes 17 sec to fold down and can be operated at speeds up to 31 mph.
That said, the rear-wheel drive Spyder is slightly heavier than the coupe that is currently on sale- 120 kg to be precise. Hence, despite similar output from the 5.2-liter V10 naturally aspirated engine, the rear-wheel drive Spyder hits 62 mph in 3.6 sec or 0.2 sec slower than the hard top. Also, it’s considerably slower than the all-wheel drive version.
Moreover, new Lamborghini Huracan Spyder RWD rides on specially developed Pirelli P Zero tires. Changes have also been made to the steering and electronics to adapt to the changed vehicle dynamics.
The Lamborghin Huracan rear-wheel drive Spyder goes on sale in January 2017.
