Lamborghini has finally turned an iconic car into a convertible with the release of the Huracán Performante Spyder. Shown at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, this high-performance convertible builds off the iconic Huracán Spyder and features the same 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10. Like its roofed counterpart, the Huracán Performante Spyder puts out 640 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. The convertible also carries over the handling performance of the coupe, with a similar wing and ALA aerodynamics system.

While a lot of attention was placed on the design and appearance of the Huracán Performante Spyder, the supercar is no slouch on the track. The car is capable of 0-62 mph in just 3.1 seconds and can double that speed in just 9.3 seconds. Part of this performance comes from the vehicle's hefty reliance on carbon fiber and is even 77 pounds lighter than the standard Huracán Spyder.
