LAMBORGHINI HURACAN SPYDER VS FERRARI 488 SPIDER

Tell someone you are the biggest car rental agency in Miami and the first question you get is, “So, what’s the best car you have on offer?” It’s almost inevitable.

So here, we’re comparing two of the meanest and the most staggering cars to ever bless the road — Lamborghini Huracan Spyder and Ferrari 488 Spider. They both are an impossibly refined combination of fierce acceleration, dynamic brilliance, flawless beauty, and a howling soundtrack.

PERFORMANCE

• LAMBORGHINI HURACAN SPYDER (9/10)

Automobili Lamborghini’s 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 engine produces staggering stats of 602 horsepower and 412 lb-ft of torque. And even though the official 0 – 60 mph figure is 3.4 seconds, the mph club is pretty sure it’s not that slow. Lambo’s figures are almost typically bettered by other publications with next to no effort.

A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission sends power to all the wheels, making the Lamborghini Huracan Spyder for rent an engrossing driving machine, and if there is anything better than its engine, it’s all the electronics that make its steering feel so strikingly svelte and gripping.

The 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 engine prowling beneath the rear engine cover of the Ferrari 488 Spider for rent has driven the masses to laud the engine for its stupendous torque levels and overall astounding power delivery. Power outputs are incredible: you get 661 horsepower at a high 8,000 rpm and 561 lb-ft of torque!

Additionally, its seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is explicit, rapid, and compliments the engine gracefully. Ferrari claims a 0 – 60 mph time of 3 seconds flat, which is impressively fast even for a hypercar. Lastly, with all that torque available on tap, this convertible car for rent is the perfect point and shoot roadster there can ever be!

DESIGN

• LAMBORGHINI HURACAN SPYDER (9.5/10)

We can safely say that anyone with more than three brain cells is a big fan of the Huracan’s unmercifully over-the-top design, and the Spyder is an even more spectacular version of the coupe.

The roof of the Lamborghini Huracan Spyder for rent is a fabric job and folds away in a neat 15 seconds, which is sufficiently quick to save you from a soaking in all but the most sudden of rainfalls.

On the whole, the Spyder’s exterior looks quite stunning when the roof is up, doing a proper impression of the coupe’s roofline, however with the roof down, it looks nothing short of epic, especially with its popping speedster-style humps.

Not by a long shot is it a shy and retiring car, and if you enjoy the limelight, the design of this Italian beast is brilliantly befitting. The Huracan Spyder script engraved on the windscreen header rail is one nice inkling that gives this Lambo the final touch it needed to be recognized as the most radiant of all!

Ferrari is a kingpin when it comes to crafty concealment of sensational aero trickery, and the 488 Spider is no anomaly.

Putting the engine at the core of the vehicle and installing only two seats doesn’t just pay off aerodynamically, it also presents the perfect platform for visual poise, and the Ferrari 488 Spider for rent has done a superb job at it.

The blown rear spoiler directs air from intakes at the bottom of the rear screen, and its explicit geometry makes for a more pronounced profile for the main surface to maximize downforce and augment upward deflection without the need for a raised wing.

Lastly, The tension across its various arched and modeled surfaces is exquisitely managed, and the 488 Spider’s crouching stance clamors power and singleness of purpose like nothing else.

INTERIOR PRACTICALITY

• LAMBORGHINI HURACAN SPYDER (6/10)

This convertible car for rent is unapologetic in making it clear what it is made for and that there isn’t room to fit everyday luxuries inside of it. That said, the front trunk has a capacity of about 70 liters and you do get a cupholder that pops out of the passenger-side dash.

All in all, there’s not a whole lot of things you can squeeze in, but it sure has a more spacious and relaxed interior than the Aventador, with added head- and legroom alongside a better overall position for the occupants when compared to most supercars.

• FERRARI 488 SPIDER (7/10)

Again, how do you address interior practicality in a car that’s so unmistakably detached from the concept?

Best to say, there’s cursory consideration in terms of cabin space, with a decent glovebox, modest pockets in the doors, and a pair of cupholders in the console. Behind the seats, there’s also a net and some general space along the bulkhead.

Another redeeming feature is a generous, rectangular trunk in the nose, offering 230 liters of easily accessible load space. The retractable hardtop that unfolds exceedingly smoothly in just 14 seconds and operates at speeds up to 25 miles is another attribute worth mentioning in the interior practicality section of our Ferrari 488 Spider for rent.
