As promised, Lamborghini has unveiled the Huracan Spyder at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany. This is the new drop-top version of the Huracan supercar.

Perhaps the highlight to the new convertible is a new electrohydraulic soft-top roof which can be deployed in 17 seconds and at speeds of up to 50km/h. Interestingly, the driver now has the ability to lower the rear window even if the roof is up.

The new model weighs 1542kg, up from 1474kg in the coupe. Despite the added weight, the 0-100km/h sprint is extended by just 0.2 seconds, now coming up in 3.4 seconds.

Power continues to be provided by a 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 producing 449kW and 560Nm. Acceleration from 0-200km/h takes 10.2 seconds (up from 9.9 in the coupe), while the top speed is 324km/h.

Standard features include a set of carbon ceramic disc brakes measuring 380mm on the front, hiding behind 20-inch Giano wheels. There’s also LED headlights and taillights, and a 12.3-inch fully digital instrument cluster for the driver.

The Spyder coincides with the MY2016 launch, which now comes with ‘cylinder on demand’ cylinder deactivation technology and stop-start. The all-wheel drive system has also been updated for improved driving behaviour.

Lamborghini says the Huracan Spyer is available to order in Australia, with prices starting at $470,800 (excluding on-roads).
