Although an earlier report had suggested we might not see the car until next spring, Lamborghini confirmed today that it will reveal its Huracán LP610-4 Spyder next week at the 2015 Frankfurt auto show. Although the company has yet to spill the beans about its newest convertible, the Spyder will almost certainly carry over the wild V-10 powertrain of the standard Huracán coupe.
We named the Lamborghini Huracán a 2015 AUTOMOBILE All-Star, praising its outrageous performance, poster-ready design, and all-round livability. The new Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 Spyder should continue to exemplify many of those traits, but with a power-folding fabric roof allowing driver and passenger to better enjoy the symphony from the car’s mid-mounted powerplant.
As in the coupe, expect the Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 Spyder to pack a 5.2-liter V-10 engine good for 610 hp (hence the “610” in its name) and 413 lb-ft of torque. A 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission will send power to all four wheels, likely resulting in a 0-to-62-mph sprint not far behind the coupe’s claimed 3.2-second run.
The introduction of the Huracán Spyder follows another, much more powerful Lamborghini droptop. Last month, the Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV roadster made its debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, with a 740-hp, 6.5-liter V-12 engine providing motivation.
