The Spyder Grigio Lynx car, chassis number 8,000, rolled off the assembly line destined for the UK market. The Huracan LP 610-4 coupe celebrated its show premiere at the 2014 Geneva International Motor Show. Customer delivery began in the spring of 2014. It is manufactured at the Automobili Lamborghini headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese.
“The Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder is the next chapter in the success story of the naturally aspirated V10 Huracan, and continues a Lamborghini tradition of open air motoring,” said then President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, Stephan Winkelmann.
The Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder had its show premiere at the Frankfurt International Motor Show, in March 2016.

The Huracan’s predecessor, the Gallardo, achieved total sales of 14,022 units during its 10 year production run from 2003 until 2013. The Gallardo achieved previously unheard-of sales volumes; and thanks to a careful program of updates, it continued to sell well until the end. The original version of the Gallardo debuted as a coupe at the Geneva Motor Show. Its 5.0-liter V10 delivering 500 hp. A six-speed manual gearbox, optionally available as the automated e.gear version, directed the torque to a rear-biased all-wheel drive with a viscous coupling. It was followed in 2005 by the Gallardo Spyder with 520 hp. The lightweight Gallardo Superleggera coupe with 530 hp marked the final iteration of the five-liter engine.
