After last week's teaser, Lamborghini has unveiled the Huracan Spyder on the dawn of the Frankfurt Motor Show.

As expected, it carries over most of the coupe's design but eschews the metal roof in favor of a newly developed electrohydraulic soft top that opens and closes in 17 seconds at speeds of up to 31 miles (50 km/h). Operating the roof is done through a new button mounted on the center tunnel and regardless if the roof is up or down, the driver also has the possibility of opening the rear window. Buyers will have to choose from black, brown and red hues for the fabric roof and there's a built-in duct that reduces turbulence in the headroom while driving with the roof down.

Lamborghini has also added two removable lateral wind guards to enhance comfort by damping the lateral aerodynamic pulsations. Moreover, there are two fins for optimizing airflow through the engine department that is covered by slatted hood specifically developed for the Spyder with the motor's air intakes painted in black.

Tipping the scales 1,542 kg (43:57 front/rear), the open-top Lamborghini uses the coupe's V10 5.2-liter naturally aspirated engine with 610 PS (449 kW) at 8,250 rpm and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque at 6,500 rpm. It needs just 3.4 seconds for the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint and 10.2 seconds for the 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) run before topping out at 201 mph (324 km/h).

Not like it matters a lot, but fuel consumption stands at a relatively low 12.3 liters / 100 km (19.1 mpg US or 23 mpg UK) in the combined cycle thanks to a new start/stop system and cylinder on demand technology. It stops efficiently thanks to standard carbon ceramic brakes with 380mm front discs teamed up with brake calipers painted in any desired colors. Other standard goodies include LED headlights, 20-inch Giano alloy wheels and the 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster.

Lamborghini will start deliveries of the Huracan Spyder next spring at prices kicking off from €186,450 plus taxes.
