  1. Straight after my BMW drives in Munich, I hopped onto a plane to fulfill a bucket list item. Go Italy jiak spaghett. I also popped by Alfa Romeo, Pagani, Lamborghini and Ferrari. As well as playing tourist in Milan, Modena and Rome. The Posts have wayyy too many photos to put here, so here' a link instead. https://carsnkopi.wordpress.com/2023/11/14/italy-auto-otaku-2023-visiting-the-museo-storico-alfa-romeo-part-1/
  2. It's the new Lamborghini SUV! Meet the Urus https://www.topgear.com/car-news/suvs/its-new-lamborghini-suv-meet-urus Lambo's long-awaited return to the SUV sector is here. Full details on 641bhp Urus here The Urus is Lamborghini’s long-awaited re-entrance into the SUV market. It’s also the perfect representation of its 55-year journey from seller of mad things with an allergy to ergonomics, to an ultra-modern supercar manufacturer with the quality, reliability and business sense of Audi. Few would argue the latter is a bad thing when it spawns a family of supercars that you can actually see out of and start on the button every time… but the big fat question here is, is a spacious, high-riding, five-seater family SUV pushing the Germanic sensibleness too far? Let’s start with the way it looks. No doubt you made your mind up within seconds of seeing it, but hopefully we can agree on one thing: of the Porsche Cayenne, Bentley Bentayga and Audi Q7 bunch with which it shares its steel and aluminium MLB platform, it’s not pug-ugly like the Bentley, and has more presence than the other two put together. In the interim five-and-a-half years since we saw the Urus concept, it’s become a little larger, rounder and wider of arse, but the overall shape is surprisingly faithful. There’s the same arrowhead bonnet shut line, but beneath that there’s a lot more going on. Layer upon layer of mesh, intakes and splitters with a cycloptic sensor housing parked in the middle of it. You’ll notice the yellow car here is maximum jazzy – fortunately, more subdued specs, like the grey car with mostly blacked-out elements, are available. Around the back, the concept’s tailpipes have dropped, but the small rear windscreen and full-width tail-light have survived. From this angle, perhaps more so than the front, it’s instantly a Lamborghini. But the Urus’s real trick is to combine a downward-sloping, BMW X6-esque roofline, which keeps things pinched and muscular around the rear wheelarch, with masses of interior space. We’re talking six-footer behind a six-footer with a good chunk of leg- and headroom to spare. It also has a 600-litre boot – enough for a grown man to climb in on all fours and do a convincing impression of a large dog. Big wheels (21-inch as standard, up to 23-inch if you must) and edgier styling than its rivals isn’t enough to earn the Lamborghini badge. For that, it must possess a vicious turn of speed, which is where 641bhp, 627lb ft of torque (available from 2,250rpm), 0–62mph in 3.6 seconds and 190mph flat out come into play. Before you start Googling furiously, the 707bhp Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk also takes 3.6secs, but that’s from 0-60mph, and it trails by 10mph at the top end. That makes the 2.2-tonne Urus officially the fastest SUV out there. Frankly, we’d be perturbed if it wasn’t. Where mild perturbing might occur is under the bonnet. You won’t find a highly strung, naturally aspirated V10 or V12 on loan from the Huracán or Aventador, but a version of the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 from the Bentley Continental GT and Audi RS6, connected to an eight-speed auto and redlining at 6,800rpm. If you can get over the fact that it’s more likely to woofle and rumble than bark and shriek, it’s actually a far better fit for an off-roader – offering more torque at lower rpm. And yes, you can take your Urus off-road should you wish. The V8’s other trick is being the most fuel-efficient engine ever in a Lamborghini (22.2mpg, 290g/km CO2) thanks in part to a cylinder-deactivation system that works below 3,000rpm and gives you 173lb ft to work with. That’s right, tickle the throttle and you’ll find yourself driving a four-cylinder Lamborghini with less torque than a diesel Ford Fiesta. But let’s not be churlish. It’s a familiar and brilliant engine ably supported by all the weight-cloaking chassis aids Lambo could lay its hands on. Firstly, the standard torque split is 40/60 front/rear (up to 70 per cent can be sent to the front, or 87 per cent to the rear as and when the conditions dictate), with active torque-vectoring from front to back axles, and between the rear tyres, via centre and rear differentials. Long story short: on loose surfaces, it’ll power oversteer, but on tarmac it should stick. And stop, thanks to standard carbon-ceramic brakes – 440mm rotors at the front, 370mm at the rear – currently the largest on any production car. Adaptive dampers work alongside an electromechanical active roll stabilisation system. It’s basically the same set-up that’s already left us stunned in the Bentayga and SQ7 – compliant in a straight line, magically flat in the corners. And then there’s the performance tech du jour, four-wheel steering, which twists the rear tyres by plus or minus three degrees, effectively shortening the wheelbase by 600mm at low speeds (by turning in the opposite direction to the fronts), or lengthening it by 600mm at higher speeds (by turning in parallel to the fronts). Getting the thing started, moving and in your mode of choice is done via a bank of industrial-sized levers. In the centre, the start button lurks beneath a flip-up cover, itself in the shadow of a palm-sized gear-selector. To the left of that is your Anima lever, used to toggle through the four standard modes: Strada, Sport, Corsa and Neve (snow), plus two optional modes: Terra (off-road) and Sabbia (sand) if you genuinely want to get grubby. Each tweaks the diffs, sound, steering, suspension, throttle and gearbox response, and raises (Neve, Terra, Sabbia) or lowers (Sport, Corsa) the air suspension accordingly. Alternatively, you can set your ideal combo of ride, steering and powertrain with the Ego switch on the right. Assume the driving position and, although physically high, you feel low, snuggled below the shoulder line. WE set about looking for some ergonomic nightmare – a lorry-sized blind spot, tortuous seats, razor-sharp trim gaps – alas, there are none to be found. The skin of this interior is very much Lamborghini – all hexagons and Alcantara – but the hardware and execution is pure Audi. Right down to the twin screen (triple if you count the instrument cluster) infotainment system lifted wholesale from the new A8. Unusually then, this is a Lamborghini, tech-wise, allowed to sit above its Bentley and Audi cousins. An indication of just how crucial this car is for the long-term health of the company, and how badly the VW Group wants it to succeed. Inside and out, it’s an impressive engineering achievement, especially from a relative minnow that sold just under 3,500 cars in 2016, although Lamborghini hopes to double that with the £165,000 Urus by 2019. Picking over the spec sheet and poking around the interior is all well and good, but this is a Lamborghini and therefore needs some Lambo DNA in its bones. Can it really be both – a family van with the heart of supercar?
  3. Crossover fever has hit Lamborghini yet again, and if you are expecting another SUV, sorry you are wrong (so am I). This Sterrato is something I least expected, as it serve no real purpose at all, imo. The Sterrato has a modest 1.7-inch suspension lift over the Huracan Evo. This allows for more suspension travel, and Lamborghini gives the Sterrato an updated version of its Integrated Vehicle Dynamics system to make the most of it. There are new calibrations for Strada and Sport driving modes, and there's a new Rally mode dedicated to low-grip surfaces. In addition to being taller, the Huracan Sterrato is also slightly wider. The track is stretched 1.2 inches in the front and 1.3 inches at the back, and of course it's all-wheel drive. 15-inch brakes with six-piston calipers provide stopping power at the front, with 14-inch discs and four-piston calipers at the rear. They are tucked behind 19-inch wheels shod with a special set of Bridgestone Dueler AT002 all-terrain run-flat tires, made specifically for this car. They're still low-profile 40-series rubber, but there's at least a little more sidewall for protection and comfort when venturing off-pavement. The tires also offer a bit more bite in the dirt, which is important when you have 602 horsepower and 560 Newton-meters of torque to play with. That's the rating for this version of Lamborghini's 5.2-liter V10, sending all that power through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. When the grip is plentiful, the Huracan Sterrato will reach 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and continue on to a top speed of 261 kmh. It's not as flat-out fast as other Huracans, but it also has a very different purpose in life. That's further evidenced by the Sterrato's visual appearance. Aluminum underbody panels protect vital portions of the powertrain. It also gets reinforced sills and a relocated air intake at the back of the roof, designed not for deep-water fording but to pull in clean dust-free air. It's impossible to miss the bold fender arches and auxiliary lights on the nose, and moving inside you'll find exclusive Verde Sterrato Alcantra upholstery with new graphics on the touchscreen. There are also several off-road-focused instruments including an inclinometer, pitch and roll indicator, steering angle indicator, and more. It's ironic that Lamborghini's first car-based off-roader will also be its last pure-combustion vehicle. Lamborghini will build 1,499 units for the world, with production starting in February 2023. Pricing will be announced later.
  4. Yahoo : New Lamborghini Countach Looks Rad In Red For Deliveries In Japan For a moment in August 2021, Lamborghini reached the hearts of motoring enthusiasts all around the world and sent them into overdrive. The Italian brand dropped a teaser video for a new Countach completely out of the blue, and then a few days later, revealed it in full. Not as a concept car or a fanciful rendering, but a legit production car going on sale in 2022. We are now halfway through 2022, and customer deliveries of the Countach LPI 800-4 have commenced. Lamborghini recently headed to Japan with the reborn supercar, marking its first appearance in the land of the rising sun. Specifically, a small group of special guests were invited to Warehouse Terrada where a new red Countach was joined by its predecessor, a 1989 25th Anniversary model also looking fantastic in red. Lamborghini doesn't tell us the exact shade of red applied to the new model – over 30 colors incorporating new and vintage hues are available to buyers – but the classic Countach wears its coat of Siviglia Red better than ever. My Dream Car ... 😍😍😍
  5. TL:DR – A Malaysian woman buys a Lamborghini for her husband because ‘his life will be confined after she gives birth’ I’ve heard of ‘push presents’ before. It’s when a man gives a gift to his pregnant wife to push the baby out and endure the pains of labor. But this is totally something new. Credits to TnP Straits Times What sorcery is this? This lady spends RM2,000,000 (~$650,000 SGD) on a Lamborghini when she’s the one doing all the work. Consider me shooketh. What can you do with that money? Here’s some things she could have done with the money. Hire a confinement nanny (for life) Buy an unlimited supply of diapers, milk, and baby clothes Insurance for the baby paid in full till they become an adult Childcare services for 100 or more babies I exaggerate a little of course. OR DO I? Writer's note: Not a sponsored ad. I just heard my friends say it's a good brand. That’s 41,000 packs of diapers. Each pack has about 100 to 120 diapers. That’s 4,100,000 diapers in total. It must be nice being rich. Online Chatter Wah I laughed out loud. Thank goodness I took MC on the day of this training. Think this person is speaking from personal experience.

  6. (Bloomberg) -- Sales of luxury cars in Singapore remain resilient despite the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic, the Business Times reported Friday, citing data from the Land Transport Authority and automakers. Six luxury brands — Aston Martin Holdings, Bentley Motors Ltd., Ferrari NV, Automobili Lamborghini SPA, McLaren Automotive Ltd. and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Ltd. — sold a total of 178 cars in the first nine months of 2020 versus 256 units for all of last year, according to the report. After adjusting for Singapore’s partial lockdown, the companies sold about 30 cars a month, up from 21 a month in 2019, the BT said. Still, registrations for the high-end car market are a lagging indicator as orders can be made far in advance of delivery, so data may not always accurately reflect a brand’s current performance, the report said. “Sales have been picking up since reopening and we attribute that to customer confidence coming back,” Bentley’s director for the Asia-Pacific region, Bernd Pichler, told the newspaper. Chong Kah Wei, a general manager at McLaren Singapore, said customer orders continued to accumulate. https://sg.finance.yahoo.com/news/ferrari-and-bentley-find-buyers-in-singapore-despite-the-pandemic-024059177.html
  7. https://www.roadandtrack.com/news/a38053213/countach-designer-denounces-the-new-model/ "Countach Designer Marcello Gandini Denounces the New Model "To repeat a model of the past represents in my opinion the negation of the founding principles of my DNA." In his time at Bertone, Marcello Gandini was credited as the designer behind masterpieces like the Alfa Romeo Montreal, the Lancia Stratos, and the E12-generation BMW 5-Series. His most famous works, though, were Lamborghinis. His most famous? The Countach. Gandini, however, wants to stress that he was in no way involved with the design and production of the upcoming tribute model, the Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4. The confusion stems from a video interview Gandini did this June. He was presented with a scale model of the upcoming car that he was told represented a tribute to be shown at Pebble Beach. He was not, however, told that this car would be put into limited production and sold to the public as a continuation. The video was used in promotion of the new car anyway, so Gandini sent out a letter denouncing both the clip and the new Countach project itself. In the letter, he stresses that he was in no way involved with the new car. He goes further, though; he says the car itself does not "reflect his spirit and his vision." Gandini adds: Whether or not the Countach is more than a cynical cash grab, it is a design tribute that is not actually endorsed by the designer it is paying tribute to. That makes for an awkward collectible, particularly when that collectible sold out at a price of $2.64 million months ago."
  8. Lamborghini fans bid S$2m farewell to the brand's pure combustion era The Aventador Ultimae closes a chapter for the Italian supercar maker, six years before its first all-electric car is due While the Aventador is the kind of car whose acceleration must seem boundless, the V12 that powers it has reached the end of its lifespan, as Lamborghini consigns pure combustion cars to history. https://www.businesstimes.com.sg/transport/lamborghini-fans-bid-s2m-farewell-to-the-brands-pure-combustion-era
  9. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Countach (the history started with Project LP112 in 1971), Lamborghini decided to revive the nameplate on a limited-production hybrid model. Only 112 units of the Countach LPI 800-4, which has a naturally-aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine with a 48-volt electric motor based on the technology of the Sián FKP 37, will be produced. The V12 engine of the Countach is as legendary as the design. Mounted longways at the rear together with its forward-cabin layout, the original Countach featured side-mounted radiators from Formula One; forward-facing gearbox and tubular spaceframe technology. It was as revolutionary in its approach to sports car engineering as in its astonishing looks, with its engine position chosen for weight distribution and balance and of course, the aspirated twelve cylinders delivering the most emotive top performance. The Countach developed the best available technologies to produce an extraordinary car: this visionary philosophy is reflected in the Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4, taking the pinnacle of current Lamborghini technologies and engineering to produce the performance expected from a Countach in 2021. "The engineering team that developed the original Countach advanced Lamborghini's pioneering technical approach, delivering unexpected innovations and the best performance available in a production car," says Lamborghini Chief Technology Officer Maurizio Reggiani. "That spirit inherently drives Lamborghini R&D, resulting in the pioneering hybrid technology in the LPI 800-4, and the emotive driving experience and top-line performance expected from a flagship V12 Lamborghini." The Lamborghini V12 6.5 liter engine, outputting 780 cv, is combined with a 48 volt e-motor mounted directly on the gearbox providing a further 34 cv for immediate response and increased performance: it is the innovative and unique architecture Lamborghini developed for Sián, that is the only mild-hybrid technology to create a direct connection between electric motor and wheels, preserving the pure V12 behavior. The e-motor is powered by a supercapacitor providing three times more power compared to a lithium-ion battery of the same weight. The monocoque chassis and all the body panels are in carbon fiber, provide the optimum lightweight solution as well as exceptional torsional stiffness: the Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 has a dry weight of 1595 kg for a dry weight to power ratio of 1,95 kg/cv. Visible exterior carbon fiber features are available in the front splitter, around the front window and wing mirrors, engine bonnet cover air intakes and rocker panel and it is always present in specific interior details. Moveable air vents produced by the state-of-the-art 3D printing technology, and a photocromatic roof - changing from solid to transparent at the push of a button - act as a reminder that this car, despite its historic inspiration, is a future automotive screensaver for the 21st century.
  10. When you have a supercar, you obviously have to make concessions when it comes to practicality. These cars are naturally very expensive to maintain and not very convenient to drive. They consume a lot of fuel, can only accommodate two occupants and have an extremely small boot space. However, some people try to maximise the versatility of these vehicles by finding secondary functions for them. This is the case of the owner of this Lamborghini Aventador who tried to grill his sausages with the supercar's V12 during a car meet. The Italian car can indeed make flames when you let off the gas. This is the result of unburned petrol vapors passing through the still very hot exhaust line. The problem is that the car is in an underground garage where there is not enough cool air. Even though the Aventador has a very sophisticated cooling system, screaming the engine at a standstill is clearly not recommended. As a result, the inevitable happens, the V12 starts to overheat and a lot of coolant spills onto the ground. This barbecue is sure to be very pricey.

  11. In this video that is circulating on Facebook, an Orange Lamborghini is seen to be driven dangerously on Raffles Ave, and is seen to be skidding across an intersection and cutting an SBS bus while doing a left turn. According to the timestamp in the footage, this took place on Saturday evening (8 May). Watch the video here: While attempting the right turn, the sports car lost control, skidded, then bounced off the kerb before accelerating off. Clearly, it looks like a wet day and the roads are slippery - We urge all drivers in these conditions to drive with extra care especially while turning at a junction. Later on, the Lamborghini driver made a dangerous, and illegal left turn, cutting an SBS bus at a traffic light intersection. This caused the bus to brake abruptly to avoid a collision with the italian sports car. Source: Google Maps Here's what netizens on Facebook have to say about the incident:
  12. The Sián has arrived: the first supercapacitor-based hybrid V12 by Automobili Lamborghini. Power, beauty and the iconic Lamborghini V12 engine are coupled with an electric boost to create an unrivaled gem of engineering and technology characterized by genuine Lamborghini DNA. Sián, thunderbolt in Bologna’s dialect, a name that underscores various aspects of the car. Its speed, which goes beyond 350 km/h, its impetuous beauty, the close ties with the Bologna area, and its explosive arrival in the world of super sports cars. Siannnnnnnnnnnnnn...... Waddddd a name.... Sidetrack,love the ease of uploadin images now!!! Mods pls lock thread if repeated cuz cant search
  13. As Singapore's only car forum, tot someone would have posted this yesterday. Since it didn't, here it is. 😀
  14. Pretty fun to play with this configurator.... http://www.lambocars.com/configurator/lamboconfigurator_hfddbaahy17aaaaaaacbabaaaaaaaaaaa0aaaadbg.html Mine would look like this... Lets see who else can come up with something better!
  15. https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/industry/lamborghini-will-no-longer-attend-motor-shows Lamborghini has announced that it will no longer attend high-profile motor shows, choosing instead to focus on smaller, bespoke events aimed directly at customers. The move was confirmed by chief marketing and communications officer Katia Bassi, who told Autocar India: “We decided to abandon the motor shows because we increasingly believe that to have an intimate relationship with the customer is key and motor shows are no longer aligned with our philosophy.” It means the company's new Sián FKP 37 hypercar will likely be the last Lamborghini to be unwrapped at a public motor show. The striking 808bhp hybrid made its debut at the Frankfurt motor show in September 2019, following the launch of the new Huracán Evo Spyder in Paris and the Aventador SVJ Roadster in Geneva several months previously. Bassi told Autocar UK that Lamborghini will continue to run a “constant program of exclusive customer events”, including “unveils of exclusive new cars in special locations, exclusive tours and driving programmes for both customers and prospects, and lifestyle events where we can invite our clients, prospects and VIPs to join other like-minded people in appreciating many different aspects of the Lamborghini brand”. She added: “Lamborghini always proves a significant attraction at motor shows, for both our clients and followers, as well as the broader public in attendance. “Motor shows in their traditional format have provided an opportunity for people to see new cars and technologies under one roof in a timely way, but influences such as the internet and social media have fundamentally changed that traditional motor show role. “Moreover, Lamborghini needs to consider its customers, who want exclusivity, personalisation and one-to one contact with our cars and our personnel.” The Italian brand has yet to confirm when its first bespoke unveiling will take place, but a likely candidate is the 819bhp V12-powered, Aventador-based ‘SVR’ track car that has been previewed in a series of videos and images over the past few months. The cancellation of the Geneva motor show in March this year and its subsequent semi-official transition to a digital event prompted widespread speculation that motor shows could be on the verge of dying out altogether. Lamborghini was one of several brands to confirm its non-attendance prior to the event’s cancellation. Sant’Agata will continue to reach out to its wider, non-customer fanbase with a new esports championship, partnerships with well-known clothing brands, a new app and its existing Super Trofeo and GT motorsport programmes.
  16. Guys it’s so cool that Electric b&b cars can win Bmw and lambo just cause of technology Feels contented that don’t need to spend so much and yet I am faster than Bmw and lambo last time I used to feel they are faster than me. Looks like the tables have turned
  17. Lamborghini has apparently revealed their limited edition hypercar on the owners-only Unica app. Supposedly called the Sian, we are sure it isn't boring to look at or to drive. Based on the Aventador, the car looks like it is influenced by the Terzo Millennio concept. Lamborghini fans would notice the “63” logos on the car's vertical fins which is a reference to Lamborghini’s founding in 1963. According to The Drive, the car will have a 6.5-litre V12 engine taken from the Aventador SJV which also means that it should have at least 760bhp. Interestingly, there are rumors that it will also have an electric motor that produces 30bhp, making the total power output just under 800bhp a possibility. The car is expected to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show on 10th of September.
  18. Ferrari has been silent about its upcoming SUV which has been in development for sometime. You can expect it to get more power than the Urus. The car, developed under the Purosangue name (Italian for ‘thoroughbred’ or ‘pure blood’) has been confirmed by Ferrari last year. Yet to be seen by anyone outside its factory gates, the SUV will likely push the performance of such vehicles to new heights, Car and Driver reported. It is believed that the Purosangue will be powered by a V8 engine from its current stable of powertrain options and will likely be paired to some kind of hybrid system. Unless Ferrari comes out with a revolutionary platform for the car, the electric motors should be powering the SUV's front wheels while the engine turns the wheels behind. With all the major luxury brands having at least one SUV in their line-up, it is only a matter of time before Ferrari joined the party.
  19. Want to know more about the one-off model created by Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse motorsport division, the SC18 Alston? Carfection has the perfect walkaround-the-car video for you. Shot at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2019, the car is the first model to be created by its motorsport division and also happens to be the first time the Aventador-based model appeared in public. Lamborghini fans can probably see that the car has cues of other lamborghini specials like the Centenario's rear lights, Sesto Elemento's roof and parts of the Veneno at the rear. Despite it being so wild-looking, the car is said to be road-legal and has done 139km so far. There are much more details about the SC18 Alston but i guess we shall let Henry Catchpole talk you through the rest of the car... https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=323&v=BmdZVnGKI14
  20. It is no surprised that with the arrival of the Urus, Lamborghini's sales would increase. Its latest year-to-date sales report confirmed that. The high performance SUV, which is now also its best-selling model, topped 2693 examples or 59% of sales from the brand between 1st of January to 30th of June this year. Thanks to the Urus, Lamborghini sold a total of 4553 vehicles around the world. In comparison, it only sold 2327 units in the first half of 2018 before the Urus went on sale, a whopping 96% lesser cars than it sold in 2019. Interestingly, the demand for the Aventador and Huracan has dropped but officially, there wasn't any explanation on why so. Sales of Asia Pacific for Lamborghini increased by more than double to 1184 examples but the highest sales growth goes to America which saw a 128% sales increase over last year. That says the largest market belongs to America and is followed by China, Britain, Japan and Germany.
  21. The Porsche 911 GT3 proved that there’s still demand for high-end sports cars with manual transmissions. But why didn't Lamborghini follow suit? Motor Trend posted this question to Lamborghini Chief Executive Stefano Domenicali and he replied saying that Lamborghini did actually researched on whether it made sense to offer manual gearboxes for special edition models of the Huracan and Aventador supercars. Unfortunately, the costs were too high. He went on to elaborate with a case study: if Lamborghini were to build a special edition Aventador with a manual gearbox, cap production to 200 units, and price it $25,000 (S$33,800) above the ‘regular’ Aventador, that would only generate an additional $5 million (S$6.76 million) for the company. It doesn't help that there is no other vehicle in the Volkswagen Group family which it could share a transmission with too. Meanwhile the Huracan might have been able to use the Audi R8's manual gearbox but sadly the six-speeder is no longer produced and again, Lamborghini wouldn’t be able to justify building one from the ground up. Adding on, Lamborghini's researched also deduced that its manual take rate wouldn’t be as high the Porsche GT3 customers' take up rate of more than 50%.
  22. Lamborghini has revealed the new Huracán Evo Spyder in full ahead of its first public sighting at the Geneva motor show next week. The convertible supercar follows the launch of the Huracán Evo, an updated and more powerful Huracán coupé, late last year. It features the same 631bhp 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10, resulting in a 0-62mph time in 3.1 seconds. That's 0.2 sec slower than the hard-top model. The 201mph top speed is identical to the coupé, however, despite the Spyder's 120kg weight penalty. Much of that extra weight is down to the car's soft-top mechanism, using an electrohydraulic set-up to lower it in 17 seconds flat up to a speed of 31mph. Automatic pop-up rollover bars are hidden behind the seats, while the rear window can be retracted electrically whether the roof is up or down, allowing the car's engine note to be more prominent to those in the cabin. The Huracán Evo's range of new chassis technologies, including rear-wheel steering and four-wheel torque vectoring, transfer unchanged to the Spyder. Lambo claims the car's aerodynamic prowess, with more than five times the downforce and aero efficiency of the old Huracán, is also maintained, while cabin airflow is said to be "minimised" to assure a "quiet cockpit environment" - when the V10 isn't on song, of course.
