You might think that the Lamborghini Huracan Performante Coupe looks impressive. But have you imagined it without a roof? Yes, as a convertible. The fastest car to lap the Nurburging, the Huracan Performante, has been rendered, sans roof - and it looks insanely beautiful.
Just after publishing his rendering of the facelifted Porsche 918 Spyder, Aksyonov Nikita is back at it with the open-top Huracan Performante Spyder he posted on Behance. In the rendering, the car was illustrated without a roof, but even with its cloth top, it will definitely look as gorgeous. Since the roadster has sleek lines, the design naturally blends in with the convertible layout effortlessly.
Though photos and videos of Lamborghini’s Huracan Performante have been taken while it was out on the Nurburging being tested, the prototype is still wrapped in its camouflage, so we still can’t tell how it looks, but it will definitely get a folding soft-top. Just like the coupe, the Performante Spyder will be equipped with a potent 5.2 liter V10 engine that can produce a whopping 630 horsepower (470 kilowatts) and 443 pound-feet (600 Newton-metres) of torque.
It was shared by the Italian company that the Performante Spyder will weigh less than the standard Huracan, because of the use of Forged Composite carbon fiber during construction. In fact, the Spyder will lose a total of 88 pounds (40 kilograms) compared to the Huracan. This means that it can also cut 0.3 second off its record time from a standstill to 62 miles per hour (0-100 kilometers per hour), therefore allowing it to finish the Nurburging track in just 6:52.01.
I don’t know if this rendering by Nikita actually eases the anticipation of those who can’t wait to see the upcoming Spyder. As we all know, this design was just made by an individual artist, and we do not know what Lamborghini’s interpretation of the design will be like. Will it be close to this design, or will it look completely different? For now, we’ll just have to settle for this while Porsche has not revealed their design just yet.
But the good news here is that the Lamborghini Performante Spyder will not remain as just a rendering unlike the Porsche 918 Spyder. It’s just that we have to wait a little longer for the actual design to be revealed - which will probably be ready by the end of the year at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The company has not given further specifications of the model yet, and there has been no word on the price, but we should find out before the year ends.
