The Lamborghini Huracán Evo debuted in January with a series of updates, including a more powerful engine and new technological directions. It was only a matter of time before the convertible Hurricane Spyder received the Evo treatment, so it is no wonder that it makes its public debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
Like the Hurricane Evo coupe, the changes for the Spyder start with relatively minor adjustments in the exterior style. A new front bumper is combined with a new rear fascia with prominent center exhaust tips, similar to the Performant Hurricane, and a wide diffuser that evokes Hurricane race cars. A new rear spoiler completes the changes. The convertible roof can be raised or lowered in 17 seconds at speeds up to 31 mph, according to Lamborghini.
The 5.2-liter V10 engine generates the same 640 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque as the Hurricane Evo coupe. The medium mount V10 turns all four wheels through a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. Lamborghini claims that Hurricane Evo Spyder will make zero to 62 mph in 3.1 seconds, which is 0.2 seconds slower than the coupe. The maximum speed is expected to be somewhere north of 200 mph.
The benefits of the chassis of the steering of the rear wheels and the vectorial torsion, which should allow more precise handling. A set of sensors called Lamborghini Piattaforma Inerziale 2.0 is transferred from the Evo coupé hurricane. The sensors provide data to the various automotive systems, from active suspension to traction control, to help prevent the driver from crashing. Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata, a central computer that adjusts different vehicle parameters on the fly, also helps in this area. It is so intelligent that it can really predict the driver’s next movement, according to Lamborghini.
Hurricane Evo Spyder also has the same updated information and entertainment system as the coupe, which includes an 8.4-inch touch screen, gesture control, and Apple CarPlay.
The Lamborghini Hurricane Evo Spyder of 2020 makes its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2019, and deliveries are scheduled for this spring. The price starts at $ 287,400, or approximately $ 26,000 more than the Hurricane Evo coupe. Expect the rear-wheel-drive Hurricane models to obtain the technical upgrades of the Evo models with four-wheel drive at some point in the coming months.
