Now that we’ve already seen the first official images of the new Lamborghini Huracan , one thing will happen for sure: there will also be a Roadster version. Of course that its official debut is still years away, but imagining how it will look like wasn’t hard at all, so today we prepared a first set of renderings for you.
As you probably expect it, the future Huracan Roadster will look pretty much identical to the coupe version, except of course its roof that we expect to be identical to what we have seen in the Aventador Roadster . This means that the Huracan Roadster will get a two-piece roof made entirely from carbon fiber that can be stored in the luggage compartment. Unlike the coupe version, the Huracan Roadster will also get a redesigned rear pillar for a better support of the new, removable roof.
Everything else will be kept identical to the coupe version, including the engine found under the hood: a 5.2-liter V-10 engine that produces 610 horsepower at 8,250 rpm and 413 pound-feet of torque at 6,500 rpm.
Expect the new Huracan Roadster to be unveiled almost one year after the coupe version arrives on the market, so, most likely U.S. customers will be able to drive it sometime during the 2016 model year.

With all the Lamborghini history in mind, it was pretty easy to imagine how the next Huracan LP 610-4 Roadster will look like: all we had to do was to remove the roof and modify a little bit the rear pillar.
The future Huracan Roadster will most likely be offered with a two-piece roof made entirely from carbon fiber, just like the Aventador Roadster. For the Aventador, Lamborghini also opted for a new design of the engine hood, but we’re not very sure if this idea will also be transferred to the Huracan.
There was always a was between the two Italian companies, and of course that the new Huracan will be no exception. It comes as a direct response to the Ferrari 458 Italia that is already on sale for a few years and enjoys a great success.
The 458 Spyder is powered by a 4.5-liter V-8 engine that delivers a total of 570 horsepower at 9,000 rpm and 400 pound-feet of torque at 6,000 rpm. It goes from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3.4 seconds with a top speed of 198 mph.

The Audi R8 is another sports car that enjoys a great success on the market and by the time the new Huracan will be put on sale, Audi should also unveil the new generation R8.
Until then, customers can still opt for the GT version that is powered by a 5.2 liter V-10 engine that delivers a total of 560 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque. The Spyder goes from 0 to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds and up to a top speed of 196.97 mph.
