Lamborghini’s latest record-setting supercar is losing its roof.

The Huracan Performante, which recently lapped the Nurburgring faster than any other production car, will soon be available as a convertible and spy photographers have caught the new drop-top model running around on the streets outside the German racetrack.

Powering the Huracan Performante Spyder will be a V10 that makes 640 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque, but what truly makes this car special are the aerodynamic elements. The “Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva” (ALA) system is a patented active aerodynamic system that adjusts multiple spoilers and ducts to provide active variation of aero load for high downforce or low drag.

Thanks to the lack of a hard top, aerodynamics will be affected on the car, so Lamborghini is no doubt working towards making sure that the ALA system still works optimally.

Besides the special aero setup, weight loss compared to the standard car is also included with this Performante version, though how much remains to be seen as convertible models can often pack on extra pounds.

The Lamborgini Huracan Performante was recently revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, so don’t expect the Spyder to be revealed too soon, likely debuting close to the end of 2017.
