Lamborghini builds some of the most exciting high-performance sports cars on the planet. When this Italian car company announces something new, it always garners plenty of attention. Here in Geneva during press preview days before the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, Lamborghini had every journalist’s attention when it took the wraps off its latest creation — the Huracan EVO Spyder.

“The Huracán EVO Spyder incorporates all the performance, next-generation vehicle control and aerodynamic features of the EVO coupe, with its own unique personality and a driving excitement that only an open-top car can offer,” said Stefano Domenicali, chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “The Spyder continues the Huracán EVO’s evolutionary charge: extremely easy to drive while excelling as a highly responsive, fun super sports car.”

The all-new Huracan EVO Spyder follows the Coupe that was introduced earlier this year. The Spyder carries over the advanced aerodynamics and next-generation vehicle dynamics control that were introduced on the hardtop version, adding the luxury of open-top high-speed motoring.

Power comes from a naturally-aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine based on the powerplant found in the high-performance Huracan Performante. The big V10 produces a plentiful 640 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque. This results in thrilling speed specs: 62 mph comes up in 3.1 seconds, 124 mph in 9.3 seconds and top speed is rated at a bit over 200 mph.

Aero plays a big part in the EVO’s performance story. At the front, the Spyder gets a new front bumper that not only gives the Huracan a more aggressive look (if that is at all possible) but improves aero with a front splitter and enlarged air intakes. At the rear is a new integrated slotted spoiler designed to enhance airflow. A new rear bumper integrates the large twin exhaust outlets. These changes help to provide more than five times the downforce as the standard Huracan.

To make proper use of all that power, the Huracan EVO features the latest version of Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata to control and enhance the overall driving dynamics. The system takes input from a set of accelerators and gyroscopic sensors that monitor real-time lateral, longitudinal and vertical acceleration, as well as roll, pitch and yaw rate. The LDVI can then affect the rear-wheel steering, 4-wheel torque-vectoring system and enhanced all-wheel-drive system to predict the best driving setup for the current situation. Even the magneto rheological suspension can adapt instantly for the most agile handling.

The Spyder features an electrohydraulic, lightweight soft-top that opens with the push of a button and fully retracts in 17 seconds. The top can be raised or lowered at speeds up to 31 mph. As the top lowers, two fins deploy behind the seats. Not only do these enhance the overall look of the car, they help reduce air turbulence during high-speed open-air motoring. With the roof open or closed, the rear window can be opened for those looking to further enjoy the roar of the V10 engine.
