2017 Lamborghini Huracan Convertible
Which Huracan does Edmunds recommend?
Does logic apply when buying a Huracan? Not much, we suspect. But if you need help choosing, go for the base Huracan LP 580-2 coupe, which is the lightest and least expensive of them all. Don't mind the slight drop in power compared to the all-wheel-drive versions as the sharper driving dynamics more than make up for it. Stick with the steel brakes instead of the pricey carbon-ceramics. Opt for the nose-lifting system and magnetorheological dampers to aid its street driving manners. Cruise control is an option you'll probably want, as well as the parking sensors and backup camera.
Edmunds' Expert Review
In 2015, Lamborghini replaced the Gallardo with the Huracan, its latest "entry-level" offering. Convertible and rear-wheel-drive versions of the Huracan have come out since, so it was inevitable that those two attributes would come together in a single model. And so it is that the rear-wheel-drive Huracan LP 580-2 Spyder debuts for 2017.
By combining the drop-top body style with the rear-wheel-drive layout, the LP 580-2 Spyder is the Spyder to buy. It allows one to fully drink in the vocals of the non-turbocharged V10 while maximizing its look-at-me quotient at a lower price point than its all-wheel-drive Spyder stablemate. Then again, it's probable the Spyder buyers don't care too much about the extra weight, else they'd have bought the lighter and stiffer (and cheaper!) coupe.
The Huracan, like the Gallardo before it, shares its underpinnings with its corporate cousin, the Audi R8.
Trim levels & features
The Huracan is available in five distinct configurations: LP 580-2, LP 580-2 Spyder, LP 610-4, LP 610-4 Spyder and LP 610-4 Avio. All are equipped with a non-turbocharged 5.2-liter V10 mounted in a midship configuration and mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The LP 580-2 is the "entry-level" rear-wheel-drive coupe variant (hence the "-2" in the model name) that's also offered as a convertible (i.e., the Spyder). It's the leanest and sharpest variant currently available. Here, the V10 engine produces 571 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque. Steel brakes and 19-inch wheels are standard.
All-wheel drive is denoted by the "-4" in LP 610-4. It, too, is offered in convertible form. Lamborghini makes the V10 a bit more powerful with all-wheel drive, and here it cranks out 602 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. Carbon-ceramic brakes and 20-inch wheels are part of the deal (they're optional on RWD models).
Many interior and exterior cosmetic options are available for all versions. The list of substantial hardware options is short by comparison — they include a suspension with continuously variable dampers, a nose-lifting system, cruise control and variable-ratio steering. Extras in the cabin include heated power seats (standard in Spyder models), navigation, sport seats and parking alerts.
The limited-edition LP 610-4 Avio has unique aircraft-inspired cabin and exterior treatments and comes with a smattering of would-be options as standard. Only 250 will be made, making this model the choice of collectors only.
Features & Specs
Our experts’ favorite Huracan safety features:
- All-Wheel-Drive System
- Provides additional traction and stability compared to rear-wheel drive.
- Rearview Camera and Parking Sensors
- Alerts driver to objects in front of and behind the car when parking and provides a view from the rear bumper.
- Carbon-Ceramic Brake Discs
- Reduce brake fade in heavy use, such as when you're driving on a racetrack.
The 2017 Lamborghini Huracan is a well-rounded mid-engine supercar. That's no contradiction. Lamborghini has been refining its cars over the past couple of generations, and the Huracan is the most accessible one yet. This accessibility is true whether we're talking driving dynamics or price — the Huracan is the entry-level model among the automaker's range of premium sports cars.
The 2017 Huracan's trim levels are less about feature content and more about offering a significant feature that sets it apart from the rest of the range. For example, all-wheel drive, a convertible top or limited-edition status is sufficient to denote a different trim level. While only a few option packages are available for the Huracan, there are plenty of cosmetic and appearance options to choose from as stand-alone choices. Cabin customization includes material and color combinations, while paint hues include pricey matte finishes. Meanwhile, the exterior can be tailored in various ways including wheel type, availability of carbon-fiber trim and a range of brake caliper colors.
The 2017 Huracan is offered in LP 580-2, LP 580-2 Spyder, LP 610-4, LP 610-4 Spyder and LP 610-4 Avio configurations. Entry-level LP 580-2 models come with rear-wheel drive, 19-inch wheels and steel brakes, whereas LP 610-4 models are equipped with all-wheel drive, carbon-ceramic brakes and 20-inch wheels. In turn, the AWD models' wheels and brakes are optional on the LP 580-2 models for a significant upcharge. Spyder models, for those unfamiliar with the Italian verbiage, are equipped with a power-folding soft top.
Elsewhere, options are largely the same among all variants. Magnetorheological variable dampers are available, as is a sport exhaust, variable-ratio steering and sport seats. Convertible models have heated power seats as standard equipment.
The limited-edition Avio model — only 250 will be built — comes with navigation, a nose-lifting system and cruise control as standard, whereas those features are optional on lesser Huracans. Paying extra for cruise control on a car at this price point in 2017 is quizzical to say the least.
Compared to its high-performance sports car rivals, the 2017 Huracan is similarly priced. Of course, options are a wild card that can send the cost spiraling upward to alarming heights. When it comes to resale value, the limited-edition Avio model is likely to become a collectible, provided the miles are kept to a minimum. Years from now, the rear-wheel-drive model is likely to enjoy special favor among enthusiasts for its more distilled driving experience.

Should I lease or buy a 2017 Lamborghini Huracan?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
