The Lamborghini Huracan Performante could soon be offered with a soft top, after a prototype of such a model was spotted by our spy photographers recently. Despite the swirly camouflage applied to the car’s body, there’s no denying that the test mule heavily resembles the hardtop from nearly every angle (discounting the roof section).

Among the prominent details visible for all to see are the highly angular front bumper and spoiler, which should feature the same active aerodynamics system, Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA), where two front flaps open and close to optimise air flow for maximum downforce.

Other carried over parts from the hardtop include the large rear wing, diffuser element and raised exhaust exits. The big change takes place at the car’s rear deck, which loses the glass engine cover in favour of an opaque cover as well as a hard tonneau cover for the cloth top. This could make the Spyder version weigh a tad bit more than the hardtop, which is currently 40 kg lighter than the standard Huracan.

Performance wise, a 5.2 litre naturally-aspirated, direct-injected V10 will likely be another familiar feature on the Spyder, producing 640 hp at 8,000 rpm and 600 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm, 30 hp and 40 Nm more than the standard car. The new roof setup may or may not result in a different zero to 100 km/h time compared to the hardtop that is capable of achieving the target in just 2.9 seconds.
