Lamborghini introduces aviation-inspired Huracan Avio

If you look at nearly every single Lamborghini since the Countach, they all look like fighter-jets. The wings and scoops and crazy body work make all Lamborghinis look like something that work put the fear into enemy aircraft if ever put into service. Well, Lamborghini is now playing off of that look with the new Huracan Avio, which takes inspiration from aviation, that debuted at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this week.

This Avio variant of the Huracan only really brings cosmetic changes, but they do look very good. The exterior comes in a variety of matte body colors and black wheels. L-63 decals (the ‘L’ stands for Lamborghini and the 63 represents the 63 years of the brand) are paired with a tri-colored cockade, to represent Italy’s Aeronautica Militare Eurofighter Tycoon fighter-jet. Two offset stripes run down the top of the car and are in the same contrast color as the rocker panels, mirrors, chin spoiler and other trim pieces. The matter body color and contrast colors really give off an aeronautic feel.

A similar color scheme makes its way to the inside, where almost the entire interior is black, with some contrast white stitching throughout. The seats have a laser-etched hexagon design in them and the L-63 logo embroidered into them as well.

Performance for the Huracan Avio is identical to the standard Huracan, as the engine and transmission are exactly the same. It still uses the 5.2 liter V10 making 610 hp and seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox powering all four wheels. So the Huracan Avio can get from 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds, according to Lamborghini, but we think it will be even faster.

The Huracan Avio is an extremely attractive version of an already attractive car. It will only be sold in limited quantities, though, as only 250 models will be made and orders don’t start until this summer.

I've been in love with cars since I was a kid, specifically German cars. Now I get to drive them talk about them on the internet.
