“The Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive Spyder doubles the driving fun, delivering raw driving pleasure with the opportunity to celebrate life outside. The driver is perfectly in touch with Lamborghini’s engineering heritage, experiencing the feedback and engagement from the set-up of a rear-wheel drive car where electronic intrusion is minimized, while enjoying the sense of freedom and spirit of life that only open-top driving provides.”

Stefano Domenicali, CEO Automobili Lamborghini

V10, 5.2l, naturally aspirated, and open air concert

The topless sister of the car we tested last year makes her appearance in usual Lamborghini galore.

The new V10 Huracan EVO Rear-Wheel Drive Spyder provides drivers with an open-air celebration of lightweight engineering, with rear-wheel drive and a specially tuned Performance Traction Control System (P-TCS). Roof up or down, daily driving and high-performance become alive with the inimitable sound of the V10 aspirated power plant. And delivering the same 610 hp (449 kW) and 560 Nm of torque as the coupé version. With a 0-100 km/h acceleration of just 3,5 seconds and a top speed of 324 km/h, like its coupé stablemate the Spyder is an instinctive driver’s car, delivering a fun-to-drive experience via hardware rather than software.

The specially tuned P-TCS traction control system is designed for adrenaline-producing performance in all conditions. Tuned to consistently deliver torque and assure traction even as the Spyder is realigning after sharp cornering or drifting. Top down, the driver’s senses are further aroused by the sound of the V10 aspirated engine responding to the throttle during maneuvers.

Strada, Anima, Giri, Corsa…

ANIMA button on the steering wheel puts the pilot in control of driving modes, with the P-TCS calibrated to suit. STRADA provides stability and safety in all conditions by minimizing rear-wheel slippage, and more proactively managing torque delivery on low-adhesion surfaces. In SPORT mode, the driver enjoys drifting fun. Traction is calibrated to allow the rear wheels to slide and skate during acceleration. However, it limits the torque when oversteer angles increase rapidly. Drifting hero but a living one. CORSA mode optimizes the car’s traction and agility when exiting a corner in high-performance conditions, maximizing dynamics and speed.


The Huracán EVO RWD Spyder’s aluminum and thermoplastic resin body sits on a lightweight hybrid chassis in aluminum and carbon fiber. The construct only weights 1,509 kg and has a weight-to-power ratio of 2.47 kg/hp. Front/rear weight distribution of 40/60, with double wishbone suspension with overlapped quadrilaterals and passive shock absorbers, providing optimized driver feedback. Ventilated and cross-drilled steel brakes are fitted to 19” Kari rims with specially-developed Pirelli P Zero tires. Optional 20” rims and carbon ceramic brakes are on the list.

New front splitter and vertical fins within the larger, framed front air intakes and a rear bumper in high gloss black that incorporates a new diffuser unique to the Huracán EVO RWD Spyder. The Spyder’s soft-top roof stows within 17 seconds under the rear hood. With soft top both up and down the driver can also electronically open the rear window, which functions as a windshield when up. Two removable lateral wind shields dampen lateral aerodynamic noise in the cabin, permitting conversations even at high speeds.
