Just like Ferrari 488 spider, the back glass window can be opened or closed as to the requirement of the driver. It is not clear how effective this mechanism would be at the top speed of 201mph.

Lamborghini has used a special duct to reduce the air flow in the head room.

Like the coupe version the Spyder has four-wheel drive as standard and there are three driving modes to select- Corsa, Strada and Sport. The driver can select the driving mode using the button present on the steering wheel. This feature in Lamborghini is known as “ANIMA” (Advanced Network Intelligence Management).

The automatic pop-up safety bars ensures protection for your neck in case of emergencies.
