It was only last September that Lamborghini launched the Huracan Avio in India. Just five short months later, the Italian marquee today, announced the launch of its final Huracan variant, the RWD Spyder in India. The Lamborghini Huracan RWD Spyder is priced at Rs 3.45 crore ex-showroom and brings the number of Huracan variants on sale in India to five.
The Huracan RWD Spyder was the only variant of the ‘baby’ Lambo that wasn’t available in India. Other than the Avio, the Huracan is internationally available as a Coupe, RWD Coupe, Spyder and an RWD Spyder.
Given the limited grip on offer because of its rear-wheel drive layout, it takes 3.6 seconds to reach 100kmph, compared to 3.2 seconds in the all-wheel drive car. 0-200kmph also takes half a second more than the all-wheel drive variants’ time of 9.9 seconds. The geeks and purists may also be interested in knowing that it tops out at 319kmph instead of being able to touch the 325kmph mark like the all-wheel drive versions.
The 5.2-litre V10 in the RWD Spyder makes 580PS of max power at 8000rpm and 540Nm of peak torque at 6500rpm. If you’re a Lamborghini fan you’ll realise that’s 20Nm less torque and 30 less horses compared to its all-wheel drive siblings. The 7-speed dual clutch transmission, however, is the same and so is the width of the tyres with 245-section rubber at the front and 305-section at the rear. The tyres on the all-wheel drive versions have a lower profile and rock 20-inch alloys while the newest Lambo will wear 19-inch rims. The taller sidewall should make the ride on Indian public roads a bit more tolerable.
The car comes with three driving modes, Strada, Corsa and Sport. The Strada version best suited for daily driving as the electronic nanny always keeps an eye on you and intervenes to maximise the grip and comfort of the car. In sport, the car goes into fun mode and the RWD Spyder is more willing to get its tail out because of its rear-wheel drive layout and put a big smile on your face. The Corsa mode is to humor your urge to set some serious lap times on a race track.
The soft top on this Spyder is said to be heat and sound insulated and can be opened or closed at the push of a button at speeds of up to 50kmph. On the inside, everything from the 12.3-inch instrument console to the fighter-jet-cockpit-inspired controls give the driver the adrenaline rush of flying low.
The Huracan range starts with the RWD Coupe, which retails for Rs 2.99 crore in India which makes the RWD Spyder the most affordable convertible Lamborghini at Rs 3.45 crore followed by the Coupe and Spyder which cost Rs 3.43 crore and Rs 3.89 crore, respectively.
