2016 Geneva Motor Show: Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 Avio

By CARSIFU | 3 March 2016

GENEVA: Alongside the Lamborghini Centenario, the Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 Avio makes its debut 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.

From the outset, Lamborghini has been inspired by powerful fighter jets.

The door panels identify the special Avio version with the logo L63, where L stands for Lamborghini and '63 is the year the company was founded.

A tricolour cockade, the symbol distinguishing nationality used in aeronautics, is placed between the letter and the number.

The Huracán Avio is available in five new colour variants, specifically developed for this model: the standard colour of Grigio Falco with pearlescent finish, and four optional matt colours: Blu Grifo, Grigio Nibbio, Grigio Vulcano and Verde Turbine.

The colours' names are taken from the coats-of-arms representing courses at the Italian Air Force Academy.

The interiors alternate black leather with a special Alcantara, which is also in black but boasts a laser-engraved hexagonal motif, available for the first time on the Avio.

The Avio has all the technical specifications that have made the Huracán a great success: aspirated 610hp, 5.2-litre, V10 engine; 7-speed gearbox with double clutch; hybrid chassis in aluminium and carbon fibre; a power/weight ratio of only 2.33kg per hp and breathtaking performance: 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 3.2 seconds and a maximum speed of over 325km/h.
