For Fans of Roofless Driving: Huracan LP 580-2 Spyder dropped AWD and Top

The sunshine-yellow rear-wheel-drive Huracan LP 580-2 Spyder was unveiled by Lamborghini at the Los Angeles Auto Show. With this citreous convertible, the Italian manufacturer apparently expands the V10-powered vehicles’ lineup.

The open-top version of the rear-wheel-drive Huracan LP 580 has dropped the roof coming with a soft-top and then resembling pretty much the LR 580-2 coupe from the Huracan range. The dry convertible’s weight is equal to 3,326 pounds, a 330 pounds less than the AWD Spyder, with a weight’s 40:60 (front to rear) distribution. The suspension has been carefully calibrated for the AWD configuration.  After all, the top is all-functional at speeds of up to 31mhp taking only 17 seconds to go down or up.

The main focus is on performance-based architecture. The Spider is powered by a 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V-10 mated to a seven-speed LDF dual-clutch transmission. As a result, the 572-hp and 398 pound-feet of torque convertible’s engine needs only 3.6 seconds to reach 0-62mph skyrocketing the car on to a 198mhp top speed.
