2017 Lamborghini Huracan RWD Spyder

The Lamborghini Huracan RWD fulfills two clear niches in the Lamborghini family. It is the least expensive Lamborghini, and with its RWD, it is arguably the most sporty. The new Spyder version will price out somewhere between the $200,000 of the RWD Coupe and the $240,000 of the AWD Coupe.

The Spyder soft-top raises and lowers in 17 seconds at speeds up to 31 mph. With the top down, tonneau-style black head rest buttresses are exposed and accentuate the sports car's lines, as well as funneling air into the engine compartment. An integrated duct and two removable later windguards reduce wind noise while the top is down, a useful feature given the car's performance potential.

The new Spyder features the familiar 5.2 liter V10 putting out 572 hp, a drop of 30 hp from the 602 hp rated AWD Huracan LP 610-4, but still adequate for a blistering time of 0-62 mph in 3.6 seconds on up to a top speed of 198 mph. The torque is 398 lb-ft, with 75% of that available at a low 1000 rpm. Cylinder deactivation means the car runs on 5 cylinders when full power is not needed, giving it a considerable efficiency boost.

While lacking AWD in favor of the more traditional RWD, this Huracan takes advantage of high-tech for optimal performance. The Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale (LPI) sensor system set in the car's center of gravity traces all vehicle movments, and gives feedback to the steering and stability control systems, as well as the optional Magneto Rheological Suspension.
