The Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 Avio might just be the closest thing to a fighter jet you’ll see on the roads. Unveiled in Hong Kong earlier this week, the limited edition car’s name, color and materials are a proper salute to the world of aviation and aeronautics.
“The Huracán Avio pays tribute to the significant impact of the aviation world in shaping the evolution of Automobili Lamborghini,” says Albert Wong, Director of Lamborghini Hong Kong. “From the custom-developed aeronautic exterior paints and liveries, down to the smallest laser-engraved details in the interior, this limited edition Huracán represents a culmination of Lamborghini’s cutting-edge designs and technologies inspired by avionics.”
True enough, the Lamborghini Huracan Avio borrows several stylistic features from the aeronautical world. It comes in five specifically developed color variants: the standard Grigio Falco with pearlescent finish, and four optional matte colors: Blu Grifo (blue), Grigio Nibbio (light grey), Grigio Vulcano (dark grey) and Verde Turbine (green). Fun fact: these colors are taken from the coats-of-arms representing courses at the Italia Air Force Academy. Contrasting double white or grey stripes run along the roof and down the front bonnet.
An L63 logo on the Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 Avio door panels sets the limited edition apart from the standard version, complete with a tricolor cockade, an aeronautics symbol distinguishing nationality. In its cockpit lies a suave amalgamation of black leather with a special black Alcantara that’s laser-engraved with a unique hexagonal motif. However, if you’re feeling something a bit more cheery, there’s always Lamborghini’s Ad Personam customization program.
Like almost all other Lamborghinis, the Huracán is named after a famous Spanish fighting bull, and it had big shoes to fill after taking over the baton from the Gallardo. But the Italians have got that sorted out. The savagery that lives under its bonnet comes in the form of a naturally-aspirated 5.2-liter V10. Combined with a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox and hybrid chassis in aluminum and carbon fiber, the car is capable of 610 hp, and will do 0 to 60mph in a whiplash-inducing 3.2 seconds. Flat out, it’ll oblige 202 mph.
The Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 Avio is a limited edition of 250 examples, and this exclusivity will cost you a minimum of HK$4.48 million.
