Very informative post. Thank you for sharing!having owned both and also normally hates soft tops, I will say that the spyder still edges out a bit. I'll go into detail in a review post later this month (car is off at PPF/paint correction for the next week). No matter which you're going with they're going to be hard to find. Only 37 (21 coupes / 16 spyders) performante for sale in the whole country. There was 42 cars about a week ago so they seem to be moving quickly now that people are realizing their finances are ok (at least for the people looking at lambos). If you break down the amount with comfort seats vs race seats you're probably at half those numbers. Production numbers floating around 1500 world wide coupe and less than 300 spyders (I've been told this and a search will show various dealers telling other lambo talk members similar numbers).
better looking (subjective I know, but I always think convertibles looks more expensive and I like the look of them with the top down
better open-air automotive experience - for those who loves it, they gotta have it, no other way - but if you prefer driving with your windows up in your coupe, then you would just get the coupe instead
better sound - I couldn't believe how much more I can hear, but it's actually not the extra volume, it's the fact that the sound is cleaner - you don't have the boom of the cabin to resonate it.
can't deny the "spyder out" transformation looks really cool. I'm also getting the Smart Top module so I can do it from my key fob which will make walking to the car and leaving the car an event - the top will open or close at the push of the key fob.
I always feel that spiders are more luxurious and expensive (which they are) which adds to my enjoyment of the vehicle overall
Soft top up is not as nice as coupe - which means some of the time it won't look quite as good. That being said I don't mind it with the top up, it's a small(ish) top and they did a great job integrating it to the lines of the car. I also might only drive it top up 20% of the time max - it'll live most of its life top down unless parked.
More expensive by at least $35k -Maybe more because that was the price difference new, but most owners tend to spec the spyder with more options.
Less made = harder to find one with the spec you want. My coupe had good options but I wanted a fully specced one this time around in the spyder.
That meant finding one with:
That's on top of the typical "necessary and should be standard options" like
- bright color
- laser engraved package
- comfort seats
- dark chrome package
- color matched brake calipers
- contrast stitching
- style package
- Nav (for carplay)
- glove box
- anti theft (so it can "beep" when locking the car)
- cruise control - kinda unnecessary for me but it does balance out the steering wheel - I always hated the empty space where cruise control would be.
- front lift
- performante interior (forged carbon pieces)
- branding package
- painted brake calipers
