Global sports car major Lamborghini Thursday rolled out the new Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder here priced at Rs 3.89 crore, ex-showroom New Delhi.

Henry said the new car replaces its best-selling open-top model in Lamborghini’s history, the Gallardo Spyder.
The Huracan LP 610-4 made its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show in 2014, and the 2015 Huracan Spyder versions are the successors to the iconic Gallardo.

The Veneno Coupé, Egoista and Veneno Roadster were rolled out to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary in 2013.
Lamborghini India Head Sharad Agarwal said the Huracan Spyder is targetted at those discerning few who enjoy performance driving, comfort and technology, (and) demonstrates the latest evolution of Lamborghini’s characteristic design superiority.
Mounted on a 5.2-L engine, the Spyder produces 449 kW/610 hp and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds, and can attain the top speed of 324 km/h.
The most distinctive feature of the Spyder is the new soft top helping it redcue the height of the car to just 1.18 meters and 4.46 meters length and 1.92 meters width, making it light with a dry weight of only 1,542 kg.
