The Lamborghini 2020 Huracan Evo Spyder Packs A Lot of Punch in a Little Package
Lamborghinis seem to bring people together, particularly pearl green, sleek ragtops like the 2020 Huracan Evo Spyder. With the cabin exposed to the sky, it dares onlookers to engage. “Talk to me,” the Spyder purrs—and people do.
Here’s what happened when Penta took out the Evo Spyder for a spin: pedestrians, other drivers, all and sundry felt an urgent need to make friends. Folks ask to swap cars, honk, or whoop. Children wave and smile, instinctively recognizing a thing of beauty. On the Major Deegan Expressway, in New York state, of all places, they graciously let you merge into heavy traffic.
The 2020 Huracan Evo Spyder is an expensive ride, to be sure—$287,000 base price ($365,000 as tested, thanks to 20-inch forged Narvi rims; a “pearl effect” paint job, and carbon skin, among many other bells and whistles). That’s comparable to prices of rival super sports cars in the same power range. For those able to afford it, and who prize a thrilling racing experience off the track, the Evo Spyder packs a lot of punch in a relatively small package. With the top down, the ride lives up to Lambo’s marketing: “open air exhilaration.”
Like its cousin, the Huracan Performante, this two-seater is powered by a 5.2- liter, 640-horsepower, V10 naturally aspirated engine with a bold timbre. Expect to be heard before you’re seen. The Evo sports a seven-speed dual clutch-automatic transmission, which can be toggled at will.
