The Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 Avio made its debut alongside the Lamborghini Centenario, at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. Produced in a run of only 250, this special edition’s name, colors and materials pay tribute to the world of aviation and aeronautics.
Lamborghini has always been influenced by fighter jets. Throughout Lamborghini’s model line, one can see the aeronautical world mirrored n digital instrument clusters; center consoles suggesting airplane cockpits; the red engine ‘start’ button; the tight “aero-stylistic” language of exterior lines; and a broad range of matt exterior finishes.
While the new Huracán Avio offers a standard configuration including lifting system, cruise control and GPS, the true uniqueness of the Avio lies in its interior and exterior finishes. White or grey painted details contrast with the body color and enhance exterior details such as the tops of the side member, the side view mirrors and the lip on the front spoiler. A double stripe, again in white or grey, runs along the roof and down the front bonnet. The Huracán Avio is available in five new color variants, named for the coats-of-arms representing courses at the Italian Air Force Academy.
The Avio’s technical specifications match those of the Huracán: an aspirated 610 HP, 5.2-liter, V10 engine; 7-speed gearbox with double clutch; hybrid aluminum and carbon fibre chassis; 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds and a maximum speed of over 325 km/h.
