What's all this about?

What do you get if you cross a Lamborghini Huracan Spyder with a Lamborghini Huracan Performante?

I can work this one out - a Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder?

Give yourself a pat on the back. This 202mph glory of an open-top motor has been unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, one year on from its hard-topped brother's show-stopping debut in Switzerland.

It looks superb. Can I have some numbers on it, please?

You sure can. It's powered by the same uprated 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 petrol of the Performante coupe, so the Spyder packs colossal punches of 640hp at 8,000rpm and 600Nm at 6,500rpm. Thankfully, 420Nm of that torque is on tap from just 1,000rpm, so the HPS shouldn't lack for low-revs response. It has gained weight compared to the Performante coupe, as the Spyder is 125kg bulkier at 1,502kg all in. But, with that mass spread 43:57 front-to-rear over the axles and with a power-to-weight ratio of 426hp/tonne, the Performante Spyder makes the most of its four-wheel-drive traction to post some astonishing benchmark performance stats.

Such as?

0-62mph in 3.1 seconds, 0-24mph in 9.3 seconds and the aforementioned top speed of 202mph. Cue lots of lazy jokes about 'rearranging your hairstyle in a hurry', right here.

Cor blimey, that's quick! What are the brakes like?

Strong. They'll haul the Huracan Performante Spyder down from 62mph to a complete stop in a mere 31.5 metres.

Excellent. And the rest of the car?

There's the same fabric folding roof as seen on any other Huracan Spyder - it can be raised or lowered in just 17 seconds, even up to speeds of 31mph - and then some of the Performante coupe's jewellery, like 20-inch alloys (there's a different design for the Spyder, however) and a whopping great spoiler perched on the Lambo's rump.

Anything else to add?

"The Huracan Performante Spyder takes the zenith of Huracan developments, combined with the enhanced emotion of driving a convertible," said Stefano Domenicali, chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. "The Huracan Performante already provides the most heightened feedback and emotion from road and track, and the Huracan Performante Spyder puts the driver even closer to asphalt and air, as well as the unique resonance of a naturally-aspirated Lamborghini engine."
