Lamborghini debuts aviation-inspired Huracan LP 610-4 Avio at 2016 Geneva Motor Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 15, 2016

The Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 Avio had its premiere at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show together with the Lamborghini Centenario. The special edition vehicle will only be available in 250 models. Its styling language and design architecture pay homage to the aviation and aeronautics industry, making it a real classic. The exterior is inspired by fighter jets, designed with enhanced ergonomic, aerodynamic, innovative, and stylish solutions.

Aeronautical-inspired features include controls employed on the center console— similar to those of aircraft cockpits, digital instrument clusters, red engine start button, a wide range of matte exterior finishes, and the tight stylistic exterior lines.

Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 Avio comes with exclusive, state-of-the-art functionalities in its standard configuration. These include cruise control, GPS, and lifting system. However, the genuine uniqueness of the new Lamborghini is reiterated by the interior and exterior finishes. White or gray details contrast perfectly with the finish of the bodywork and underscore the exterior styling such as the side view mirrors, the front spoiler's lip, and the side member's tops.

A white or gray double stripe also runs along the roof down to the front bonnet. The door panels further establish the uniqueness of the aviation-inspired vehicle, bearing the logo L63. The L stands for Lamborghini while the number 63 signifies the founding year of the car maker.

A tricolor cockade, which distinguishes nationality in the aviation realm, is integrated into the letter and the number. The limited edition vehicle can be availed in five new exclusive variants: four matte finishes and a standard Grigio Falco with a pearlescent finish. The matte colors include Verde Turbine, Grigio Vulcano, Grigio Nibbio, and Blu Grifo. The names of the finishes were inspired by the coats-of-arms that represent the courses offered at the Italian Air Force Academy.

With the Ad Personam customization program of Lamborghini, customers can further personalize their vehicles with varying colors and trim options that are not offered as part of the standard specification. Meanwhile, the interior alternates black leather with a special black Alcantara that boasts a laser-engraved hexagonal theme, a first on the Avio. The material covers the armrest, knee support, central seat section, and a part of the door panel.

It is further optimized with white contrasting stitching. The sides of the seats are also hand-embroidered with the L63 logo. Like the exterior, the interior can further be customized with Lamborghini's Ad Personam program. Highlighting the uniqueness of the special edition vehicle is a hand-enameled plate on the side window of the driver.

The aeronautical vehicle possesses all the innovative features that have contributed to the success of the Huracán such as the 610-hp 5.2-liter V10 engine, aluminum and carbon fiber hybrid chassis, seven-speed gearbox with double clutch, a power-to-weight ratio of 1 hp to 2.33 kg, an acceleration of 100 km/h achieved in just 3.2 seconds, and a top speed of more than 325 km/h. The Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 Avio is slated to grace dealer showrooms by summer.

LAMBORGHINI INTRODUCES A HURACÁN SPECIAL EDITION AT THE GENEVA MOTOR SHOW: THE HURACÁN LP 610-4 AVIO

Alongside the Lamborghini Centenario, the Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 Avio will make 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, from which it has borrowed technological, aerodynamic, ergonomic and stylistic solutions.

References to the aeronautical world in Lamborghini's current product line include digital instrument clusters; controls located on the center console as in airplane cockpits; the red engine 'start' button; the tight stylistic language of exterior lines; and a broad range of matt exterior finishes. The new Huracán Avio offers a host of premium functional features in its standard configuration including lifting system, cruise control and GPS*. But 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 door panels further identify the special Avio version with the logo L63, where L stands for Lamborghini and '63 is the year the company was founded. A tricolor cockade, the symbol distinguishing nationality used in aeronautics, is placed between the letter and the number. The Huracán Avio is available in five new color variants, specifically developed for this model: the standard color of Grigio Falco with pearlescent finish, and four optional matt colors: Blu Grifo, Grigio Nibbio, Grigio Vulcano and Verde Turbine.

The colors' names are taken from the coats-of-arms representing courses at the Italian Air Force Academy. Lamborghini's Ad Personam customization program allows owners to choose from further color and trim options not included as standard. 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 material covers the central section of the seat, the armrest, the knee support and part of the door panel, and is enhanced with contrasting stitching in white.

The L63 logo is embroidered by hand onto the sides of the seats. The interior color and trim can also be customized through the Ad Personam program. Underscoring the exclusivity of this new special edition is a hand-enameled plate on the driver's side window. The Avio has all the technical specifications that have made the Huracán a great success: aspirated 610 HP, 5.2 liter, V10 engine; 7-speed gearbox with double clutch; hybrid chassis in aluminum and carbon fiber; a power/weight ratio of only 2.33 kilograms per hp and breathtaking performance: 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 3.2 seconds and a maximum speed of over 325 km/h. The Avio is scheduled to reach dealers' showrooms in the summer of 2016.
