2019 Lamborghini Huracán EVO Spyder
The Lamborghini Huracán was introduced in 2014 as the Italian supercar maker’s next-gen entry-level model, following in the footsteps of the ever-popular Lamborghini Gallardo. In January of 2019, Lamborghini revealed the second-generation Huracán EVO Coupé, and now the Raging Bull is dropping the top with the Huracán EVO Spyder at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show. Slotting in as the second entry in Lambo’s modern V-10 stable, the Huracán EVO Spyder is equipped with the same go-stuff as the hardtop, including a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter powerplant, adaptive suspension components, and eye-popping aerodynamics. However, as an added bonus, the Huracán EVO Spyder adds in unlimited headroom, all without compromising the Huracán EVO’s impressive performance capabilities.

2019 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster
The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is the most extreme iteration of the company’s range-topping supercar. The SVJ combines the complex aerodynamic systems first introduced on the Huracan Performante with the "Jota" badge, first used on the Miura and then revived for the Diablo. A Roadster version of the SVJ will follow in 2019.
Lambo has yet to confirm that a drop-top version of SVJ is underway, but has already sent a certification request to the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for such a model. The SVJ Roadster is one of four cars certified by CARB for the 2019 model year. This also means that the drop-top is only a few months away and will likely to break cover in early 2019. Let’s find out what it may bring to the table from the review below.

Lamborghini Huracán EVO Spyder Spices Up Lambo’s Open-Top Onslaught At Geneva
The Geneva Auto Show with its early Spring date is the ideal place for automakers to showcase the cars that will be on everyone’s lips this summer. Case in point: Lamborghini. The supercar maker from Sant’Agata Bolognese brings to the Swiss show not one but two offerings that are bound to mess up your hair and make you hard of hearing for a few days: the Aventador SVJ Roadster and this one, the Huracan Evo Spyder.
Lamborghini is no longer a company satisfied with making cars that are fast in a straight line but that will, otherwise, try to endanger your health. Ever since Ferrari started putting out flawless car after flawless car, Lambo’s been upping its game significantly too. Last year, the floor of the Geneva Auto Show was graced by the Huracan Performante Spyder and the Evo is simply a Performante that decided to double down on its dose of steroids. It also shares the Performante’s restyled face with some tweaks.
The 2020 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster is Just a Hair Heavier and A Hair Slower than the SVJ Coupe
The awesome Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, the successor to the iconic Diablo Jota and Miura SVJ, joined the 2019 Geneva Motor Show in Roadster trim. The fastest Lamborghini around the Nurburgring is now available without a roof with similar performance, infinite headroom, and a louder engine soundtrack.
The 2019 Lamborghini Huracán EVO Spyder Drops Its Top Before Geneva
Lamborghini has revealed the soft top version of last year’s Huracan Evo coupe, the 2019 Huracan Evo Spyder. It is exactly the same car, but with the extra weight of its folding roof, its acceleration is slightly affected - but what you gain on the other hand is limitless headroom and a better earful of its glorious naturally aspirated V-10 engine.
Lamborghini Huracan Spyder Gets A Facelift
Have you ever heard of supercars getting mid-life facelifts? The Lamborghini Huracan is an exception. The car has been spied twice with heavy camouflage, clearly indicating that the Huracan is being refreshed for the market. The last update seen on the Huracan range was at the Geneva Motor Show in March this year, when Lamborghini introduced the Spyder Performante, but now it looks like theHuracan Spyder is due for some changes inside and out. Get ready to witness the Huracan’s rebirth!
Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster is All But Confirmed
The Lambo Aventador SVJ, the world’s fastest production car on the Nurburgring as of August 2018, will soon be offered as a roadster. Shocking, huh? Obviously not. As soon as the coupe debuted at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, we knew that the SVJ was scheduled to lose its roof sooner than later.
Pray to the Heavens That The Lamborghini L595 Roadster Becomes Reality
Four years ago, Italian coach builder Zagato unveiled the Lamborghini 5-95 Zagato, a one-off creation that spawned into a limited edition series because deep-pocketed customers couldn’t get enough of it. Fast forward to 2018, and we could be in for a case of déjà vu. Sitting on Zagato’s website for all the world to see is a rendering of the Lamborghini L595 Zagato, a droptop version of the 5-95 Zagato that we saw in 2014. It’s unclear if Zagato has plans to build this version, but the image was accompanied by “2018,” a sign that we could see this car come to life sometime this year.
2018 Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder
The Lamborghini Huracan made its public debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. It replaced the Gallardo, the company’s best-selling model as of 2018, in the lineup and became Lambo’s entry-level supercar. Slightly longer and wider than its predecessor, the Huracan employs a different styling language compared to the Gallardo, featuring lines derived from the range-topping Aventador. The design includes sharper cues, more pronounced side skirts, and a more aggressive stance overall. Under the hood, the 5.2-liter V-10 was updated for more horsepower and improved fuel economy. In 2017, Lamborghini launched the higher performance Performante model, and a Spyder version broke cover at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.
Three years have passed since the Huracan was unleashed on public roads and the supercar is already highly popular, selling more than 8,000 units since its introduction. The Performante Spyder arrives to close the circle of the Huracan family, which now includes two coupes, two convertibles, and two race-spec models. The Performante name returns after long hiatus, as it was originally introduced on the Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante, essentially a convertible version of the Gallardo Superleggera. The high-performance drop-top was launched in 2011 and remained in production until the Gallardo was phased out in 2013. As you might have already guessed, the Performance Spyder adds infinite headroom to the Performante’s record-setting performance. And it’s almost as quick!

Lamborghini Huracán Performante Goes Topless In Geneva
The Lamborghini Huracan proved itself as a worthy successor to the iconic Gallardo only a few months after it hit the market, but it wasn’t until the Performante version was launched that Lambo unveiled its true potential. Almost a year later and the record-setting supercar loses its top to become the Performante Spyder at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.
2018 Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster
The Lamborghini Aventador is crowned as Lambo’s most iconic model, and since its introduction in 2011, the family has grown considerably. After the base Aventador hit the road, it paved the way for models like the Aventador J, the LP 750-4 SuperVeloce, the Dreamliner Edition, and was even used as the basis for cars like the Veneno and Centenario. By the time late 2016 came around, the car that was responsible for the aforementioned models – and replaced the Murcielago in the lineup – was due for an update that brought about a revamping of the car’s aerodynamics and its chassis to go along with a mild update to power output as well. Now, in early September of 2017 – at least a month before the new 2018 Aventador S will be delivered to the first customers – Lambo has decided to present us with the Aventador S Roadster, a topless version of the new S that is destined to stand out next to its less-frisky counterpart by means of unlimited headroom packed into a head-turning package.
So that sounds good and all, but what does it really mean? Well, it means that the world’s only super sports roadster with a mid-rear V-12 is its own standalone model that’s highly customizable with five different interior configurations, and an unlimited choice of exterior colors via the Ad Persona program. It takes four-wheel drive to an all-new level alongside things like the active suspension system, four-wheel steering system, and Lambo’s classic LDS and LMS systems that were revised specifically for the Aventador S Roadster. So, even though the Aventador S Coupe is still fairly fresh in our minds, it’s time to take a good look at its topless counterpart. And, you better hurry if you want to be informed – this baby makes its first official debut to the masses at none other than the 2017 Frankfurt Auto Show.
Updated 09/18/2017: We added a series of new images taken during the car’s official debut at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.

While the collective population of the auto industry is transfixed at the imminent arrival of the Lamborghini Huracán Spyder Performante, the aftermarket tuning scene continues to move along, busy as ever in its attempt to create the next great tuning program. One tuner in particular probably doesn’t even have the Huracán Spyder Performante on its list since it just concluded developing a program for the standard Huracán Spyder. Yep, take a look at this new tuning kit from O.CT Tuning for the roofless Huracán that puts the supercar’s output up to an incredible 794 horsepower and 597 pound-feet of torque.
Even by aftermarket standards, those numbers are beyond reproach for a car like the Lamborghini Huracán Spyder. It doesn’t have that much in the way of exterior and interior upgrades, but with numbers like that, I think O.CT Tuning can be excused for focusing its attention on the Huracán Spyder’s all-natural 5.2-liter V-10 engine.
Remember, this is the same tuner that gave us the O.CT800 Supercharged program for the Lamborghini Huracán this time last year. That one may have had some decals with it, but the focus of that kit was also on the Lambo’s V-10 engine, and the results are right around what this kit can accomplish itself.
There might be other programs for the Lamborghini Huracán Spyder that offer more in terms of quantity, but when it comes to adding more power to that V-10, there is only a handful that can compete with O.CT Tuning.
We’ll keep the upcoming Lamborghini Huracán Spyder Performance in our thoughts until it makes its hyped debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The aftermarket tuning scene is filled with tuners that can make cars faster and more powerful, yet O.CT stands out.

2018 Lamborghini Aventador S
The Lamborghini Aventador was unveiled in early 2011 and replaced the Murcielago as the company’s range-topping supercar. Its styling is inspired by the limited-edition Reventon and the Estoque concept car, while motivation is provided by Lamborghini’s second V-12 engine design in 50 years. Like its predecessor, the Aventador spawned Roadster and higher-performance SuperVeloce versions, with the latter gaining a drop-top variant of its own. The supercar was also used as a base for the Aventador J concept and the Veneno, a limited-edition model that stands out for its outlandish design and ludicrous price tag. In late 2016, Lambo unleashed a mid-cycle update for the Aventador, also adding an "S" badge to its name.
Spotted testing on public roads since early 2016, the Aventador S prototype didn’t have much to say about the changes Lambo had in store and it was believed that the update will be about minor nips and tucks. However, the Italian brand had completely different plans for the coupe, giving it a complete makeover in the aerodynamics and chassis department. It’s also significantly more powerful, moving very closer to the beefed-up SuperVeloce thanks to a 30-horsepower bump.
“This is the next generation Aventador as well as the expression of new technological and performance milestones in super sports car development,” said Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and CEO Stefano Domenicali. “The Aventador S is visionary design, cutting-edge technology and driving dynamics in pure harmony, and elevates the concept of super sports cars to a new level.”
The Lambo Aventador S will reach its first customers in Spring 2017 as a 2018-model-year vehicle.
Updated 01/25/2017: Lamborghini dropped a series of new images, plus a new video taken during the cars global debut at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia (Spain).
