As night follows day, a higher performance Lamborghini Huracán inevitably means a higher performance Lamborghini Huracán Spyder.
Lamborghini courted controversy in 2017 with the Huracán Performante and its record-smashing Nordschleife lap, but there are fewer doubters now after independent testing.
The Huracán Spyder Performante’s straight-line performance isn’t demonstrably different to the standard car, but Lamborghini promises its cornering pace will be.
It leverages the mid-mounted, 5.2-litre, naturally aspirated V10 for 470kW of power at 8 000rpm and 600Nm of torque. Lamborghini claims that’s good for a 3.1 second sprint to 100km/h, 0-200km/h in 9.3 seconds and a 325km/h top speed.
The maximum torque doesn’t arrive until 6 500rpm, but Lamborghini counters that 70% of the torque peak is already underfoot at 1 000.
The 1 507kg supercar hangs 57% of its weight over the rear axle and hauls down from 100km/h in just 31.5m. – BD Motor News
