It's no secret. We love us some Lamborghini Huracan Performante. From our camouflaged first drive on the Imola circuit in Italy where we said, "The Huracan Performante has such high levels of performance that mere mortals can feel as if they know what they're doing on an old F1 track. How can you put a price on that?" To the debut where it was revealed that "the Performante's real party trick is its trick ALA system (Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva). Forged carbon fiber is used in the Huracan Performante's active aero elements in the front splitter, rear diffuser, and wing." Finally, it was announced with video proof that the car had (then) set the production-car lap record (6:52.01) on the infamous Nordschleife circuit at the Nurburgring. Finally, in our first test where the "Mantis" green, winged wedge tied or set some of our own performance records, we wrote, "Supercars are special, and they make you feel special. Measured on that scale, the Lamborghini stands apart. Not just because of its radioactive paint and unmistakable style but also because it offers a driving experience unique even among the ranks of the world's best supercars." We recently included one as a contender for Motor Trend's 2018 Best Driver's Car (stay tuned for the results). So, where did Lamborghini go from there?

The Lamborghini Huracan Performante was one of the most intoxicating driver 's cars of 2017 with that 5.2-litre V10 and that Nurburgring lap record. But does taking the roof off it, and adding 125kg of body strengthening, take away any of the magic? Dan Prosser drives the 2018 Spyder in Snowdonia

Super Spyder

They removed the top, making this the sixth iteration (not counting the Polizia, Pope, and Avio special editions) of the Huracan that was introduced in 2014. Unlike the larger Aventador S Roadster that has fixed, manually removable roof panels, the Huracan Performante Spyder features a button-operated electrohydraulic system that opens the rear deck and neatly folds and stows a cloth top beneath—at speeds up to 30 mph (48 km/h), in less than 20 seconds. Compared to the coupe, the Huracan Spyder's rear deck lid is necessarily redesigned, and there's a pair of integrated passthrough ducts on the B-pillars that are said to reduce cabin turbulence. With its power rear window up and soft top down, we can attest to the ease with which two people can have a conversation at super-legal speeds. "Excuse me, fellow professional driver, can you believe we are now traveling in excess of 100 mph (161 km/h) on this closed road with the top down and having this hushed conversation?"

Lamborghini Huracan Meets Fiery Demise After Pump Snafu

  Lamborghini Huracan Meets Fiery Demise After Pump Snafu A car pulled away from the gas station with the fuel pump still in, spraying the Lambo with gasoline and setting it ablaze. Dramatic footage of a Lamborghini Huracan Performante on fire at a U.S. gas station has been posted on Instagram. Two Lamborghinis that were on their way home from taking part in the Goldrush Rally via St Louis, Missouri, had stopped by a Mobil1 fuel station to fill up with gasoline when another car, which appeared to be a Chrysler MPV not associated with the rally, drove off with the fuel hose still attached to the car.

With the rear window lowered, both wind and engine noise (more like music) dramatically increase in volume. "My gawd! Listen to that!" Nor does the top, when up, cause any booming or flutter. Adding 0.6 inch to the car's height, it's a well-engineered convertible. And, despite the approximately 275-pound (125-kg) penalty, Lamborghini estimates only a 0.2-second difference in acceleration to 60 mph. From our prior testing, this means it should take just 2.8 seconds. That's adequate, right? Simply access launch mode (Corsa + ESC off), two pedals in, jump off the brake, and blammo! We'll take Lamborghini's word that Spyder's top speed is identical to the coupe's at 202 mph (325 km/h). Globally, Lamborghini expects the Spyder to account for 40 percent of Huracan Performante sales but predicts that the U.S. market take rate will be closer to 50 percent despite a whopping $33,069 USD premium over the coupe.

First Drive: 2018 Lamborghini Huracán Performente Spyder

  First Drive: 2018 Lamborghini Huracán Performente Spyder Dream-livers, your car has arrivedWhat is the Huracan Performante Spyder? It's insane, that's what it is. It is a road-going elephant gun that transforms mere mortals into driving deities. It's the ride that earns you looks of smoldering jealousy from drivers of high-end Porsche 911s. It's the car that Aston Martin owners can't quite afford. It is the passport to a lifestyle that 99% of us—especially those of us who chose to write about cars for a living rather than do something more lucrative, like working at a 7-11—can only dream about.

Curves Ahead

Not just a straight line fiend, the Huracan Performante Spyder retains the coupe's ability to bend the countryside to its will. This time, however, there's more landscape and soundscape to enjoy. When the Anima three-mode drive selector is in Strada, it has a profoundly mellowing effect on the exhaust loudness. In either Sport or Corsa, it's all manic all the time, and in Corsa, you'll need to pull the paddles to shift gears. The Spyder driving experience reminds me of riding a motorcycle. As you drive, your body senses changes in temperature; your eyes, the light and shadow; your nose, the smell of fields and grass; your ears, the octaves the engine produces. It really is a feast for the senses, adding another dimension to the already intensely satisfying Huracan Performante experience.

Our previous drives and tests of the Huracan Performante coupe all came with the optional magnetorheologic suspension. The Spyders we drove had traditional dampers, and although the optional ones work miracles, the standard suspension is remarkably capable, as well. On the wide variety of roads we drove in and around Napa, California, the car never once felt hard, harsh, or out of its depth. Our test cars, however, did feature the dynamic steering option (variable-rate front rack and rear-steer). Seamlessly, this system definitely helped the car negotiate slower, tighter corners, steering in opposition at these speeds and in phase at higher ones. Unlike our dynamic steering experience in the Aventador S Roadster that left us feeling as if the front and rear steering systems weren't on speaking terms, the Huracan Performante's system works invisibly and so well that one might not even know it was at play. And at speeds between 43 and 193 mph (69 and 311 km/h), the ALA active aerodynamics come online, as well. If you're not familiar with it, there are ducts in both the front splitter and the rear deck that can be opened and closed in 0.5 second. Depending on their position, the car can make differing amounts of downforce, front, rear, and side to side. We wish there was a way to turn the system on and off so we could tell you how well it works, but we'll simply point to a 2.64-second lap time advantage we recorded at Big Willow Springs Raceway between a Huracan Performante (1:22.53) and a Huracan LP610-4 (1:25.17). It can't be just the result of a 20-hp advantage. There's clearly more to it than that.

Lamborghini Aventador SVJ teased at Nürburgring

  Lamborghini Aventador SVJ teased at Nürburgring Power-to-weight ratio is highlightedLet's first address the looks. The front fascia has been revised with a much deeper chin and a big wing splitting the main air intakes in the front. The side skirts are wider with end caps at the forward sections behind the front wheels. Those wheels have motorsport-style single center nuts. In one of the trailer's clips, we can see they're wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires. It also has the outrageous rear wing we've seen in spy shots, and the exhaust also sits high up like on the Huracán Performante.

We tested the 2018 Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder around Napa, California And when the Lamborghini Huracán Performante Spyder slices through corner after corner with zero drama, the smile that naturally occurs when driving something so potent gets incrementally more maniacal.

CALISTOGA, California — When Editor Mike Floyd sent me to review Lambo ’s latest, I vowed that I would cover it like the jaded, sober professional I imagine myself to be—but that all went out the window the moment I opened the taps on the 2018 Lamborghini Huracán Performante Spyder ’s 630-horse

The optional carbon-ceramic brakes on our Spyder are about as good as those available on any production car. The pedal is, indeed, as firm as expected and doesn't need to travel much to begin slowing the car. The hard part with carbon-ceramics is what happens as the driver eases off the pedal. Do the pedals release predictably, gradually, or all at once in a free-fall feeling? Lamborghini got this part right, too. The brakes are confidence inspiring both for their power and fade resistance, and also for their predictable release, allowing trail-braking to feel natural.

Adding Through Subtraction

Lamborghini could've simply left the Huracan Performante coupe alone as the best supercar it has ever produced. Sure, the cubic-dollars ALA-equipped Aventador SVJ recently reset the lap record at the Nurburgring, but the tidier, more affordable Huracan Performante will stand the test of time and remain the one that started it all. By offering a convertible version with the Spyder, Lamborghini did very little to take away from the Performante's inherent greatness. Removing the top only adds to the experience, offers a broader range of emotions to enjoy, and succeeds in pleasuring more of your senses. Almost as a rule, I prefer the coupe over the convertible variant of the same car. The convertible is often less rigid, less practical, and less capable. However, given the choice, if I had an extra 33 grand lying around, I think I'd be one of the 50 percent who'd opt for the drop-top version of the Huracan. I'd lose essentially nothing and gain a motorcycle in the deal.

Lamborghini Aventador SVJ sets Nurburgring lap record

  Lamborghini Aventador SVJ sets Nurburgring lap record For production cars, at least.That's a hair faster than the Nio EP9 lap time from last year. The Nio knocked off the then-new Lamborghini Huracan Performante, so we're sure Nio is eager to get back out and have another go. While the times from Lamborghini and Nio might be impressive, they're way off the actual lap record. Just a couple of weeks ago, Porsche announced that its 919 Hybrid Evo — an unrestricted version of its Le Mans prototype race car — set a record of 5:19.546. That's nearly a minute and a half faster than road-legal cars.

Innovative aerodynamic tech turns Lamborghini's already screeching Aventador nto a razor-sharp track weaponAh, but then then there’s Lamborghini. Never quite as civilized as Ferrari nor as sophisticated as McLaren, Sant’Agata’s new SVJ — as in Appendix J of the old time FIA racing regs, which set the rules for turning a production car, say a Miura, into one that would be allowed to race — may be “blessed” with digital minders of its own, but it sure doesn’t act like it.
