Lamborghini Geneva Auto Show

Lamborghini introduced two new open-top models, the Huracán EVO Spyder and Aventador SVJ Roadster, due in spring.

Automobili Lamborghini presented the new Lamborghini Huracán EVO Spyder and the the Aventador SVJ Roadster at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show. The open-top Spyder joins its coupé counterpart launched earlier this year, as the second model in the V10 Huracán EVO line-up. The Roadster makes upholds the exceptional performance, handling and aerodynamic superiority of the SVJ, with its unique roadster design granting an exclusive open-air exhilaration to both driver and passenger.

“The Aventador SVJ Roadster inherits all the power, performance and ground breaking aerodynamic technologies of the coupé, but with its own iconic presence and prowess,” says Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini, Stefano Domenicali. “It is as fundamentally exciting to drive as the Aventador SVJ but with an added exclusivity: the option of the open air. With the same extraordinary performance roof on or off, the Aventador SVJ Roadster incorporates the dynamism of the coupé with the unique spirit of a Lamborghini roadster.”

The SVJ Roadster sports the ‘Super Veloce’ for superfast and ‘Jota’ suffixes, signifying the car’s performance and track prowess. Itts coupé stablemate took the Nürburgring-Nordschleife production car record lap-time and the roadster is no less a futuristic, driver’s car. Benchmark performance comes from the most powerful series production V12-engined car produced to date by Lamborghini, outputting 770 hp at maximum 8,500 rpm. The SVJ Roadster delivers 531 lb.-ft of torque at 6,750 rpm. The SVJ accelerates from standing to 63 mph in 2.9 seconds and from 0 to 105 mph in 8.8 seconds.

The roadster roof, constructed from high pressure RTM carbon fiber, is removable via quick release levers in the cabin, and securely stored under the front hood. Weighing less than 13 pounds each part, the roadster adds only 110 pounds to the SVJ coupé’s weight of 3,362 pounds.

Only 800 units will be produced of the Aventador SVJ Roadster. The car shown in Geneva is in the new matte color Bronzo Zenas (bronze) and features a special Ad Personam livery in Bianco Phanes (white). The livery emphasizes the sharp lines of the front and rear bumpers and further enriches the specifically re-designed engine bonnet.

The Spyder adopts the next-generation vehicle dynamic control and aerodynamics developed for the coupé, with the 5.2 liter naturally-aspirated Lamborghini V10 engine uprated for a higher power output and incorporating Titanium intake valves.

“The Huracán EVO Spyder incorporates all the performance, next-generation vehicle control and aerodynamic features of the EVO coupé, with its own unique personality and a driving excitement that only an open-top car can offer,” says Domenicali. “The Spyder continues the Huracán EVO’s evolutionary charge: extremely easy to drive while excelling as a highly responsive, fun super sports car. Particularly with the roof open, the emotive sound of the naturally aspirated engine and the refined, lightweight exhaust system take the sensory experience to a new level. The Huracán EVO Spyder’s design, performance and exhilarating open-air drive experience is literally breathtaking.”

The Huracán EVO Spyder outputs 640 hp at 8,000 rpm with 442 lb.ft of torque delivered at 6,500 rpm. With a dry weight of 3,399 pounds, the car accelerates from 0-62 mph in 3.1 seconds and from 0-124 mph in 9.3 seconds, with a top speed of 201 mph.
The aerodynamic superiority of the Huracán EVO is continued with the Spyder. With roof either up or down, the aerodynamic competency of the EVO Spyder, with more than five times the downforce and efficiency of the original Huracán Spyder, sustains not only the most dynamic handling and performance but the comfort of the occupants. Cabin airflow is minimized and the occupants assured a quiet cockpit environment.

Like the EVO coupé, a new front bumper gives the car a low, assertive personality with aerodynamic efficiency improved via the front splitter and enlarged air intakes. At the rear the Huracán EVO Spyder adopts the new rear design evocative of naked race bikes and inspired by Lamborghini Huracán race cars, with the twin outlets of the new sports exhaust system positioned high in the rear bumper. At the upper end of the tail an integrated, slotted spoiler provides enhanced air flow, clearly emphasizing the car’s aerodynamic abilities. The underbody has been shaped to maximize aerodynamic efficiency.
The side profile of the Huracán EVO Spyder differs significantly from the coupé, but is equally dynamic with roof up or down. The lightweight soft top carves the top line of the Spyder’s silhouette while up, and is hidden away when down in the most efficient space possible, revealing the athletic and equally powerful lines of the open car. Automatic pop-up safety bars are hidden away.
Whether the roof is up or down, the driver can electronically open the rear window, which functions as a windshield when closed and when open, amplifies the song of the EVO Spyder’s unique aspirated engine sound.
The first customers will take delivery of the new Lamborghini Huracán EVO Spyder this spring.
