Subscriptions & booklets

Lamborghini had already put it to the test with the Gallardo. Coupé with all-wheel or rear-wheel drive and Spyder with all-wheel or rear-wheel drive. With the Gallardo successor named Huracán, the Italian sports car manufacturer uses the same principle. First, a 610 hp coupé was presented that transfers its power to all four wheels. This was followed by a 580 hp version for fans of rear-wheel drive. It's the same with the Spyder. First there was all-wheel drive. At the LA Autoshow 2016, L amborghini now its convertible rear-end blower.

Huracán Spyder with rear-wheel drive and 580 hp

The new Lamborghini Huracán RWD Spyder (rear wheel drive) feeds its maximum output of 610 hp and 540 Nm from the well-known V10 naturally aspirated engine with 5.2 liter displacement. So 30 hp and 20 Nm less than in the all-wheel drive roadster. The maximum torque in the rear-wheel drive Spyder is 6,500 rpm. From 1,000 /min. But the V10 should already balance 75 percent of the maximum torque and make the clutch work up a sweat.

The sprint to country road speed should fly within 3.6 seconds. The Lamborghini Huracán Spyder blows up the 200 things RWD according to the manufacturer after 10.4 seconds. For comparison: the all-wheel drive Spyder is two tenths faster. In terms of top speed, it exceeds its weaker counterpart by 5 km /h (324 to 319 km /h). To capture the Huracán Spyder RWD at high speed, Lamborghini installed steel brakes with aluminum calipers that are hidden under 19-inch rims. They are pulled on Pirelli P Zero rubbers.

At first glance, both look like peeled from an egg. Small differences become apparent on the second. The open rear-wheel drive version has a self-contained apron. The two struts in the middle of the vehicle go directly into the upper lip. This is different with the all-wheel drive version. The air outlets on the 580 hp Spyder have also been changed towards the outside. In the rear, the Lambo designers working with Mitja Borkert also modified the area on the outside of the apron most visibly.

3.6 seconds: That is how fast the Spyder with 580 hp should be up Accelerate 100 km /h.

Big difference on the scales

Perhaps the biggest difference is shown on the scales. The dry weight of the Lamborghini Huracán Spyder RWD, at 1,509 kilograms, is significantly lower than that of its more powerful roadster brother, which carries 1,542 kilograms. All-wheel drive has its weight price. The rear-wheel drive Huracán Spyder pushes 60 percent of its pounds on the rear. The weight distribution is thus significantly different from the all-wheel drive Spyder with 43:57 percent.

The Lambo technicians around chief developer Maurizio Reggiani adapted the steering, stability and traction control according to the other drive technology. The transmission remains the same. A double coupler leads through seven gears in all Huracán variants. On the lower part of the steering wheel, a switch can be used to call up various drive programs: Strada, Sport and Corsa.

What is also the same: the soft top in both Spyder models opens up to one speed within 17 seconds from 50 km /h. When the Huracán takes off its cap, two fins automatically extend so that the roof line in the rear does not tear off. Lamborghini has installed a 12.3-inch TFT display in the instrument panel, which can be configured in different versions. If the driver cruises there at half throttle, the Huracán automatically switches off a cylinder bank to save fuel. Under full load, the entry-level lambo plays its combustion symphony in all ten cylinders. Incidentally, the best sound is achieved when the convertible top is closed and the rear window is lowered. We speak from experience.

The new Spyder will be available from January 2017. In terms of price, it will be positioned between the coupé version 580-2 (178,500 euros) and the all-wheel drive version (201,705 euros).
