Car and Driver: Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 Avio Honors Flight as Only a Supercar Can


Recommended Posts



Automakers have long tried to forge strong associations between their products and the aeronautics industry—perhaps the most famous example was Saab and its “Born from Jets” campaign that came long after the car company was separated from the fighter-jet division. But the strongest ties in today’s marketplace just might come from Lamborghini, what with its cars’ aggressive wedges, scoops, red start buttons under clear bezels, and more. Now, to make the association a bit more direct, Lambo has unveiled the Huracán LP610-4 Avio.


This special-edition Huracán coupe will be limited to 250 examples, which ain’t many but still represents a severalfold increase from the 40 copies of the $1.9-million Centenario that was also premiered at Geneva. At its core an appearance package, the Avio’s main connection to the Eurofighter Tycoon jets flown by Italy’s Aeronautica Militare is the tricolor cockade/bullseye on the doors. A pair of offset stripes run over the Avio’s hood and roof, while the rocker panels, mirror caps, central chin spoiler, and front-quarter trim get a contrasting color treatment of white, gray, or orange.




The Avio models will come exclusively with polished black 20-inch wheels and five matte body paints, although more color options are available through Lamborghini’s custom Ad Personam program. We personally dig the Avio in Verde Turbine with gray accents [as seen above], which could be a nod to the Curtiss P-40 Warhawk flown by the Allies in World War II, minus the teeth. But any way you paint it, the Avio is a lot more tasteful than Chris Brown’s jet fighter wrap over his old Gallardo. The engine bay’s “L 63″ lettering isn’t an endorsement of AMG’s products, bur rather is shorthand for “Lamborghini” and the company’s founding year of 1963.


Inside, the same graphics from the doors are embroidered into the seat bolsters, while laser-etched hexagons are applied to the black microsuede seat inserts. Everything is black, of course, except for parallel white stitching that extends all the way down to the floor mats. A requisite limited-edition plaque is affixed to the window sill behind the driver’s seat. Cruise control and navigation also as standard, as is the hydraulic front-end lift system that will prevent an Avio from being truly grounded. Pricing hasn’t been announced, but as with nearly every car introduced in Geneva, it’s no doubt stratospheric.
