If you upstanding released a specialized, lightweight track weapon with fancy active aerodynamics, what would you do next? If you said chop the car’s top off, you ought to work for Lamborghini, because that’s just what the company is doing to its Huracán Performante. Our spy photographer has caught roadster versions of the essential Huracán out during testing. The car looks pretty much as you would await. The lower body work from the front bumper back is all effectively finance-over from the coupe. The rear wing looks to have the same disguise and functionality, too.

Where things really change is with the engine cover. Like the conformist Huracán roadster, the Performante loses the glass engine cover in favor of an dim cover and a hard tonneau for the top. The engine cover features larger vents at the found of the wing’s pedestals, and they appear to have large scoops at the other end. In counting up to the new engine cover, this Performante roadster has different wheels which look as if to be taken from the standard model. However, these will likely be swapped for the coupe’s strainer-style wheels. A close examination shows that the wheels are shod in Pirelli P Zero Corsas that are doubtlessly the same compound as the standard tires for the Performante coupe.

While this won’t be the oldest time Lamborghini has built a roadster out of its high-performance entry-level sports car, the outcome to turn the new Performante into one seems a little strange considering the effort to mitigate it and endow it with magical aero. Even more so when the result is a car that Lamborghini claims laps the Nürburgring faster than the bonkers Porsche 918 Spyder. It feels like a footstep backwards to add a retractable top that probably weighs more and messes with the aerodynamics. But then, Lamborghinis are known mostly for being flash and fast, and this Performante convertible will fill both criteria with serenity.
