Lamborghini today launched the Huracan LP610-4 Spyder in India. This exclusive four wheel drive Huracan comes with a soft top is priced at INR. 3.89 crore (ex-showroom, Delhi).

Talk about styling the new Huracn Spyder takes its styling cues from the Huracn LP610-4 coupe, the only difference is the Spyder gets a soft fabric top instead of a full hard roof as seen on the coupe and rear wheel drive variants. Inside the cabin the Huracan Spyder has a driver focused cockpit and comes wrapped with Alcantara and carbon fiber trim. Towards the bottom of the steering wheel just like the other variants has the switch for different driving modes.
The fabric roof top takes exactly 17 seconds to open or close and it can be operated upto speeds of 50 km/h mark with just a press of a button. The Spyder variant of the Huracan is actually 120 kilograms heavier than that of the coupe which is because of the additional weight of the fabric roof as well as the motor which helps it to open or close.
