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.
Update 03/15/2019: We’ve updated this review with fresh images of the 2019 Lamborghini Huracan EVO Spyder that were taken during the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Check them out in the gallery at the bottom of this page!
It’s no secret we’re fans of the Lamborghini Huracán here at TopSpeed. It’s hard not to be with its screaming, 5.2-liter V-10 kicking out 610 horsepower at 8,250 rpm and 413 pound-feet of torque at 6,500 rpm. A seven-speed dual clutch transmission does the shifting in split seconds and a permanent all-wheel-drive system puts all that power to the pavement. It only takes the Huracán 3.2 seconds to hit 62 mph. Give it 10 seconds and it’s blazing at 125 mph.
So when this video popped up online of the 2015 Huracán going for a top-speed run, we had to pause and watch. Pop some popcorn, folks, this video is good.
The Lambo’s straight-line performance is also on full display here, as evidenced by the beautiful digital gauge cluster. After adding about 4,500 revs to the V-10, the brake is released and the Huracán just shoots forward, hitting 60 mph just past second gear, the engine continues to scream as the speedometer climbs like a millisecond stopwatch. Things get a little concerning when a temperature warning light comes on for the all-wheel-drive system, however. We don’t know how many runs the car had done before this one, so perhaps the driver simply didn’t allow for a proper cool-down period.
Despite the warning light, the driver pushes on to reach a tremendously fast 211 mph, hitting that speed in only 40 seconds. Amazing Besides the nerve racking warning light, the video is a thrilling example of what Lamborghini’s newest supercar is capable of. And if you’re keeping score at home, Lamborghini lists the Huracan’s top speed at greater than 202 mph. We guess Lambo listed it this way to avoid encroaching on the Aventador’s 217-mph top speed.
First Lindsay Lohan dominated the TopSpeed pages and now The Bieb-man himself, Justin Bieber, is set to tackle our pages. This time around, however, he wasn’t driving like an ass to get away from paparazzi; nope, this time he was driving like an ass simply because… he enjoys driving like an ass – at least that’s what we can make of it.
Over in the United Arab Emirates, even Justin Bieber can’t weasel his way into renting a car because he is just shy of the minimum age requirement. So, what does a millionaire pop sensation teeny bopper do in this instance? Well, borrow an Aventador from a “friend,” of course.
But, that’s not what gets him on our front page. What gets him here is the fact that he was caught breaking driving laws in Dubai via six different traffic cameras. According to reports, the teen idol was driving excessively fast and when the recently supercar’d out Dubai police department tried to stop him, he simply kept on going.
The report of the police trying to pull The Bieb over and him failing to yield leaves a massive hole in the story that has yet to be filled. We still don’t know why he was driving so fast and we are really wondering why in the world he didn’t pull over when the police attempted to stop him. There are reports that he was late to a few shows in the area, so he may have been speeding to get to those, but we highly doubt he would drive himself to his shows.
We’re sure that more details will emerge as time goes on, so stay tuned for more.

Just days after Heffner Performance launched their package for the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera to an 8.72 second quarter mile at 169 mph, Underground Racing is answering back with a Superleggera package of their own. The difference? Underground Racing’s Gallardo has made Heffner Performance’s quarter mile record time a distant and short-lived memory. The Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera by Underground Racing ran the quarter mile in 8.35 seconds at a speed of 181 mph.
The new Gallardo Superleggera package was specially developed for a customer who gave Underground Racing the following guidelines: "Do anything you want to it! As long as it drives like a street car and is the baddest Gallardo on the planet."
As a result of the not-so-strict guidelines, the Gallardo Superleggera by Underground Racing received a Stage 3 engine upgrade for its 5.2L V10 engine, "Quiet" Helix Billet 1st - 6th gear set and final drive gears, and a full "factory synchronized" transmission that uses all of the OEM E-Gear operating system. These additions gave way to a monstrous 1,750+ WHP (1,100 on pump gas), all while maintaining its street-legal status. The only other added feature is the new set of 18" wheels from HRE, but who really cares when you’re talking about a Gallardo Superleggera that produces that much giddy-up?
Underground Racing has one of the most illustrious track records when it comes to twin-turbocharging Lamborghini’s and it’s little wonder why. In top tune, they can extract upwards of 2,000 horsepower from the Gallardo’s 5.0/5.2-liter V10 engine. As a result, their cars are some of the fastest in the world as demonstrated by the videos above and after the jump.
Less than a week ago, we brought you a video of Robert Himler’s twin-turbo Gallardo running on race gas for the very first time, and that showed the incredible acceleration which these TTG’s are capable of achieving, with his particular unit being geared for acceleration rather than top speed.
However, that’s not the route a 1,500AWHP TTG went in a run at the recent Unlim 500+ event where top speed was the aim of the day. Running up the perfectly straight road which stretches for in excess of one mile, this incredible Gallardo Nera managed to top out at 251mph just past the 1 mile mark. It also hit 240.84 mph just a few seconds earlier and completed the one mile run in just 23.861 seconds.
Thankfully, the whole run was captured in an array of impressive camera shots and we have both of these videos which really show just how impressive this car is. In the second video at the 55 second mark, you’ll see the driver kicking the car into 6th gear before the 251mph run was reached just 5 seconds later, suggesting that this car could go even further if its aerodynamics were improved further, there was more road to continue, and if the driver was brave enough to keep pushing it.
Nevertheless, this is a truly incredible achievement so check out the videos!
Second video after the jump.
Robert Himler first came to our attention when we brought you the ever-entertaining video of him filming a reaction video of his mom whilst driving his 1250hp twin-turbo Lamborghini Gallardo. Since that time, his YouTube channel has moved onto bigger and better things with his large selection of supercars also featuring heavily in future videos. However, that’s not what you’re here for. You are here to see just how fast this ‘TTG’ is when combined with 110 Octane racing fuel.
Despite owning this incredible supercar for upwards of a year, Himler has never ran it with racing gas before and as all automotive enthusiasts know, this expensive fuel mixture adds significantly to the overall horsepower and torque outputs of cars tuned to run it.
During the time of filming, the car was running at 20PSI of boost and put down an incredible 1,222AWHP on the dyno, significantly more than anything offered by Bugatti and even Hennessey and SSC.
If all of this wasn’t enough, a selection of different camera angles are shown throughout the video and the one at the 4:30 minute mark really caught our attention. If you look closely at the speedometer and the time of the video, you may notice the car accelerates from 50mph to 145mph in less than 7 seconds; a truly incredible feat!
Acceleration is one of the key components which create a supercar. Getting that perfect launch requires a combination of an extensive list of factors, namely finding a car with perfectly suited horsepower and torque figures. Finding a supercar with enough grip and a fast enough transmission to whip through the gears is also extremely important in getting off the line and continuing through to the quarter mile.
In the latest episode of Head2Head on the Motor Trend YouTube channel, they pitted the latest generation of carbon fiber constructed supercars against the all-conquering Bugatti Veyron over the quarter mile to see just how close the competition has come and if the Veyron can finally be knocked off its seemingly everlasting pedestal.
Motor Trend gathered the Lexus LFA, the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4, the McLaren MP4-12C, and a beautiful blue Bugatti Veyron Grandsport and took them to an abandoned runway in the depths of the U.S. They then conducted the review through two knockout rounds in order to find the Veyron’s closest competitor before pitting the remaining car against the Veyron.
So who won, you ask?
Well, we won’t ruin that for you as this video is definitely worth the 7 minutes it lasts.
Underground Racing is quite famous for their extreme tuning kits especially if we are talking about Lamborghini models. For sure you remember the Gallardo Twin Turbo with its 1500 WHP on race fuel. Today is time to watch the supercar showing what it is capable of.
The supercar had a bad start its true, but after 100 mph it caught up with the gear shifting and it went almost perfectly till 236 mph. Now that’s something you won’t see everyday, that we can assure you.
The run has been made at the Moscow unlimited where unfortunately there is not enough track line to go fully top speed still, but the Gallardo TT managed to reached an incredible speed of 236, where by comparison the Bugatti Veyron did 226 mph maximum.
We hope you’ll enjoy the video!
Going through all of the glorious supercars of 2011 was no easy task, especially since it felt like every random country of the world was developing their own supercar. Each vehicle we came across deserved to have their time to shine on the list for best supercar of 2011, but as time went on, it was clear which ones stood out above all of the rest.
A couple of the supercars on the list shouldn’t surprise anyone, especially since they were created by one of the top supercar makers in the world. Then there are the relative newbies to the group that have received enough recognition to warrant praise from the average car enthusiast, but the final vehicle would probably not be recognized by many and its home country may actually cause ridicule to ensue. The end result, however, was enough to give it a spot on our list.
Hit the jump to check out which of the supercar bad boys made it to the top of our list for Supercar of the Year.
When Lamborghini officially unveiled the LP700-4 Aventador, they were quick to point out that their new supercar could hit a top speed of 217 mph. Turns out, they weren’t being facetious. German magazine, Sport Auto, tested the Lambo’s capabilities during a hot lap at Hockenheim where the Aventador crushed its own top speed with a spectacular peak of 230 mph (370 km/h)!
The last few seconds of the video are obviously the most important because that’s when the top speed is achieved, but before that we are given closeups of a few different parts of the vehicle, including that killer 6.5 L V12 engine, and a 0-270 km/h acceleration test.
Reminder: The Aventador is powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine with an AWD layout that produces 700 HP 8,250 rpm and 509 lb-ft at 5,500 rpm. It sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds, while the ultimate top speed is still up in the air.
