After being unveiled in IAA Frankfurt in September this year, JH Italia Sdn. Bhd., the sole authorized dealer for Lamborghini in Malaysia, today officially revealed the Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder at their showroom in Glenmarie, Shah Alam.
The Huracán Spyder is an electrohydraulically operated lightweight soft top variant of the highly successful Huracan coupe. Mr. Sebastien Henry, Head of Operations, South East Asia for Automobili Lamborghini along with Chief Operating Officer, Marcus Chye of Lamborghini Kuala Lumpur, were on hand to introduce Automobili Lamborghini’s latest lifestyle supercar.
Sebastien Henry said “The Huracán Spyder combines the performance of the Huracán coupé paired with the added emotional dimension of open air driving. The Gallardo Spyder, which this car replaces, was the best-selling open top model in Lamborghini’s history. We are confident that the Huracan Spyder will surpass this.”
Marcus Chye added, “The Huracan Spyder with its ability to open its top in 17 seconds while driving at speeds of up to 50 km/h (31 mph) will go a long way to making open top driving in Malaysia all the more accessible and enjoyable.”
The Huracán’s aluminum and carbon fiber hybrid structure provides exceptional torsional stiffness for an open top car – an improvement of 40% over its Gallardo predecessor. This platform offers true supercar handling and agility.
Combined with the highly emotive 5.2-liter V10 which generates 610 hp at 8,250 rpm, the Spyder achieves a top speed of 324 km/h (201 mph), acceleration figures of 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.4 seconds and 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 10.2 seconds, thus delivering on the promise of “performance and lifestyle under the open sky.”
