Lamborghini has released a video alluding to a new model that will likely turn out to be a Spyder version of the Lamborghini Huracan Performante. Due to be unveiled at the Geneva motor show, the new Spyder should top the current Huracan range, incorporating the hard-top’s intricate aero and soulful powertrain with an open-air cabin.
As a reminder, the Performante liberates the extra 30bhp via a redesigned and optimised intake and exhaust system, all developed from Lamborghini’s motorsport division. The double-clutch gearbox has also been developed further, with new software reducing shift times and improving response and driveability at low speeds.
We think very highly of the fixed-head Performante as it brings a new level of driver interaction to the Huracan’s already impressive package. The lack of a roof should bring even more drama to its driving experience, and as the sole remaining supercar packing a naturally aspirated engine (aside from its Audi R8 sister car) the Huracan Performante Spyder will become a very rare animal indeed.
