The Lamborghini Huracán Spyder Performante has been spotted testing in Germany, all but confirming the car’s planned launch later this year.

Visually – aside from the obvious – the Spyder maintains the coupé’s extreme styling large wing and aerodynamic upgrades, and is expected to also maintain its 631bhp power figure.

It’s likely that the car will maintain the coupé’s 202mph top speed and 2.9sec 0-62mph time as the standard Huracán models do, but a spokesman for Lamborghini couldn’t confirm any details about the car. Extra weight and drag may mean a slight dip in performance.

It’s the first time the hardcore soft-top has been spotted testing, suggesting a launch time later this year. A world premiere at the LA motor show later this year is likely, given the show’s traditionally more convertible-filled exhibitor list.

The Huracán Performante in coupé form costs £213,000; the regular Spyder carries an £18,000 premium over the coupé, so a price for the Huracán Spyder Performante of over £230,000 is likely.
