Lamborghini Makes Tribute to Aviation with Huracan LP 610-4 Avio [w/video]
Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 Avio is debuting alongside the exclusive Centenario at the Geneva Motor Show this year. And unlike the latter (which will be produced in 40 examples that are already sold), the Avio will have a limited production run of up to 250 examples. The special edition is dedicated to the world of aviation and aeronautics, and this is absolutely understandable by supercar's name, colors and materials used for its building.
For the creation of this unique car, Lamborghini was inspired by powerful fighter jets. This is exactly from where it has borrowed the technological, aerodynamic and ergonomic, and stylistic know-how. For instance, there can be made references to the aeronautical world featured in Lamborghini's current product line, including the following: digital instrument clusters, controls located on the center console, the red engine 'start' button, the tight stylistic language of exterior lines and more.
Avio can be ordered in five new colors, which were specifically developed for it. The standard one is called Grigio Falco with pearlescent finish. The other four available finishes include the matt colors Blu Grifo, Grigio Nibbio, Grigio Vulcano and Verde Turbine. The names of the colors are taken from the coats-of-arms representing courses at the Italian Air Force Academy. If one wants to order another color, then he or she can reach the Lamborghini's Ad Personam customization program, which allows owners to choose from further color and trim options.
Regardless of the exterior color one chooses, the Avio will feature white or grey painted details contrasting the body paint scheme. For instance, these details adorn the tops of the side member, the side view mirrors and the lip on the front spoiler. In addition, there is a double stripe in white or grey, which runs along the roof and down the front bonnet. Signifying the special Avio edition are the L63 logos found on the door panels. Here L stands for Lamborghini and '63 is the year the company was founded.
The cabin is as exclusive as the exterior and it includes alternate black leather matched with a special black Alcantara with laser-engraved hexagonal motif. The material covers the central section of the seat, the armrest, the knee support and part of the door panel. White stitching contrasts the black interior scheme.
As on the door panels, the L63 logo can be seen embroidered (by hand) onto the sides of the seats. Another emphasis on the exclusivity of Avio is making the hand-enameled plate on the driver's side window. This Huracán also offers a wide variety of premium functional features in its standard configuration including lifting system, cruise control and GPS.
Just like any other Lamborghini Huracán, the Avio is powered by the 610 HP 5.2 liter V10 engine matched to a 7-speed gearbox with double clutch. It runs on hybrid chassis in aluminum and carbon fiber, and has a power/weight ratio of only 2.33 kilograms per hp. This means only breathtaking performance: 0 to 100 km/h is covered in a mere 3.2 seconds, while the maximum speed is over 325 km/h.
Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 Avio is going to reach dealerships this summer.
