Along came a Spyder: Lamborghini to premiere topless Huracán in Frankfurt

The Lamborghini booth will undoubtedly be a can’t-miss attraction at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, but I probably didn’t have to tell you that.

On September 15, the Italian brand will debut the Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder, an open-top version of the Huracan supercar (pictured above). Like its predecessor the Gallardo Spyder, the convertible version will feature a folding soft-top roof that opens and closes in seconds with the push of a button. Other than that, the Spyder should be mechanically identical to the coupe, but the “Hurricane” Huracan is already potent enough to satiate even the most apathetic of drivers.

Power will come from the same 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10 that pushes the standard car forward, and it will do so with 602 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque on tap. Channeled through the car’s seven-speed dual-clutch and all-wheel drive system, it should be able to hit 60 mph in around 3.2 seconds, although there may be a slight speed penalty with the convertible layout.

If you can’t make it to Frankfurt, Lamborghini has set up a dedicated livestream for the reveal right here. The covers come off the Huracan Spyder at 12:20 PM CEST, which is 3:20 AM PST and 6:20 AM EST in the United States.

Another stunning Italian will be gracing the event as well, and although it’s been revealed before, that doesn’t make it any less special. Originally debuting at Pebble Beach, the Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster is a mouthful and then some, but with a menacing body kit and a 740-horsepower V12 onboard, it’s a lot of car. Most of the attention will be on the topless Huracan come September 15, but it’s fair to say the Aventador should attract quite the crowd as well.

Stay tuned to DT Cars for more Frankfurt news as we approach next week’s event.
