Lamborghini Huracán Evo Spyder review

Published: 17 Jul 2020


What should I be paying?

Good news if you shared your winning lottery ticket with a dozen other members of the syndicate – this is as affordable as soft-top Lamborghinis get. The four-wheel drive Huracán Evo Spyder kicks off at £218,000, but if you can make do with the detuned V10 (it sounds just as good and you can enjoy the noise for a few more tenths before things get illegal) then the rear-drive Evo Spyder is yours for £37k less – but still £15,600 more than the coupe.

That’ll quickly skyrocket when you set about splashing ‘forged carbon’ trim, painted brake calipers and bi-colour stitching about the place. Even Apple CarPlay is an option, which seems cheeky. The matte ‘Blu Arione’ example in these pictures was tricked out to a cool £232,512. Oof.

No-one’s expecting this to be an IKEA chariot, but practicality isn’t the Huracán Spyder’s strong suit. With or without front driveshafts, the nose boot is a one-suitcase space. There’s no room to shove squashy bags behind the seats either. We’d heartily recommend speccing the nose-lift function to save any embarrassing graunches entering that underground car park near Harrods.

With CO2 emissions vaulting over the 300g/km barrier, road tax will set you back over £2,000. You can probably afford it, but it remains to be seen how long you’ll be able to drive a car like this into the heart of a city where adorning fans will smother it with selfies.
