In an official statement released earlier this week. Lamborghini has revealed that it will be unveiling the all new Huracan Spyder at next weeks Frankfurt Motor Show.
It was originally speculated that the Italian supercar maker would hold off on unveiling it until the Geneva Motor Show in March. But a statement revealed via Twitter confirmed that the company had decided on an earlier Frankfurt unveiling for the Spyder.
Lamborghini’s Tweet did not reveal very many details about the car, but it did include a lone teaser image of the Spyder. While a strategically placed pillar kept much of the car obscured, the rear of the car does appear to reveal that the new Spyder would retain the coupe’s C-pillar line which suggests that the Spyder would be a targa model versus a formal convertible model like its predecessor the Gallardo Spyder.
Regardless of what roof configuration ultimately makes the cut, look for the Huracan Spyder to carryover virtually all the coupe’s performance goodies including the potent 5.2 liter V10 and all 601 of its tarmac shredding horses. This horsepower figure as well as its equally impressive 413 lb-ft of torque should allow the Spyder to make the sprint to 60 mph in just over 3 seconds which would only be a tad slower than the coupe’s 0 to 60 time.
Lamborghini did not reveal any pricing information for the Huracan Spyder, but look for the droptop to carry a premium over its coupe sibling, and arrive with an MSRP just over $240,000. After it makes its debut in Frankfurt, look for the first production units to begin arriving in Lamborghini showrooms sometime next year.
