What Does Open-Top Motoring Feel Like at 201 MPH? Lamborghini Huracán Evo Spyder Can Help You Answer That

While the Geneva Motor Show may be right around the corner, Lamborghini has decided it cannot wait to unveil its Huracán Evo Spyder. So the raging bull has arrived in Geneva a bit early…but with 201 MPH on tap, one can understand how these things happen.

The model variant is at least the third Evo in the series, and the second Huracán to receive the designation. The Super Trofeo Evo arrived in late 2017, and the Huracán Evo about a year later.

Like the coupe, the Spyder’s V10 is tuned to deliver up to 640 HP and 443 pound-feet of torque. A bit of weight gain for the sake of rigidity means the drop-top adds about two-tenths of a second to the coupe’s 0-62 time of 2.9 seconds. Small price to pay for this warm-weather dream car, though. And the top will operate in 17 seconds, at up to 31 MPH.

In contrast with the Huracán Spyder, the Evo receives a bevy of aero tweaks, including bigger intakes. Titanium intake valves, rear-wheel steering and Lambo’s LDVI performance computer are other features of the convertible. The cabin is decked out with an 8.4-inch touchscreen, and finished in Alcantara and leather. And, that electric green color? Lamborghini calls it Verde Selvans, and it’s available on any Huracán.

The Huracán Evo base stickers at about $290K, a 10% premium over the coupe. Deliveries begin this spring.
