The Huracan Spyder is capable of sprinting from 0-100 km/h mark in just 3.6 seconds while it can attain a top speed of 319 km/h mark. The car weighs just 1509 kilograms which actually helps it to receive an impressive power to weight ratio of 2.6 kg/hp. The Huracan’s stiff aluminium and carbon fibre chassis helps in improving the handling further. The suspension system has also been optimized to handle two wheel drive settings. Furthermore the weight reduction of the Convertible too has been biased to 40 percent towards the front and 60 percent towards the rear.

As far as the styling is concerned the Huracan Spyder RWD is concerned the entire front and rear of the Spyder variant has been redesigned completely to make it look different from the four wheel drive variant.

Just like every other Huracan variant the RWD Spyder variant to gets the ANIMA (Adaptive Network Intelligent Management: ‘soul’ in Italian) button on the steering wheel which allows the driver to adopt different driving modes.
