After making rounds on the Internet for about a month, the Italian beauty has finally made its way to the sub-continent of Asia. The second convertible in the same family to hit the Indian market after the all-wheeldrive Huracan Spyder, the beast is pegged at a whopping price of Rs. 3.45 crore (ex-showroom Delhi). Considering the overall portfolio of the Italian luxury carmaker and completing the Huracan family in India, the RWD Spyder LP580-2 is the 5th member of the series after Spyder, Coupe, RWD Coupe and the special edition – Avio.
The topless Spyder was first unveiled at the international stage of 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show and has been up for sale in the European market for a month now. Launched in 2014 originally, Lamborghini Huracan was the replacement of the iconic Gallardo – the most successful and demanded vehicle of the carmaker.
The perfect amalgamation of comfort and performance draped in style, the RWD Huracan Spyder convertible will share the technical specs of the RWD Coupe, which means the former will resemble to that the latter in terms of engine, tranny and rear-wheeldrive figures. The naturally aspirated 5.2-litre mid-mounted V10 engine throws out a robust power of 580HP along with a peak torque of 540Nm. Transmitting the power to the rear wheels is the 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox synced with the power-packed motor. This combination is perfect to propel the baby Lambo from 0-100Kmph in 3.6 seconds with a monstrous top speed of 319Kmph, which lags behind the RWD Coupe only by a margin of 0.2 seconds.
As far as the exteriors are concerned, the company has reworked on the front and rear ends alongside giving the front larger air intakes. The 19-inch Kari wheels are wrapped beautifully in the Pirelli PZero tyres, which have been designed especially for this variant. With a weight distribution of 40/60, the RWD Spyder is marginally heavier by 120Kgs than RWD Coupe. One can manage to operate the soft top in just 17 seconds at a speed of up to 50Kmph.
The beauty having the beastly power comes with three driving modes – Strada, Sport and Corsa. The first driving mode is best suited for daily driving as it keeps a close eye on your driving by maximizing the control and grip on the car. The Sport mode will bring its tail out, courtesy to the RWD system, which ultimately converts your drive into an entertaining one. The Corsa mode, on the other hand, is best suitable for getting better laps time around the racetrack. It is also preferable when you want to get yourself indulged into a spirited driving style.
From the inside, the luxurious interior with comfortable leather seats is designed to deliver you the best experience of a convertible. Once inside, you will be greeted by cockpit-inspired controls that are best complimented by the 12.3-inch high resolution TFT instrument console.
The all-new Lamborghini Huracan RWD Spyder will compete against the likes of Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster, Ferrari California T, BMW i8 and Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet.
