Lamborghini Huracan Avio Takes Inspiration From Italian Air Force

Only 250 copies will be sold

Alongside the Centenario, Lamborghini brought another limited-edition model to the Geneva auto show. The Lamborghini Huracan Avio features unique cosmetic upgrades, and only 250 copies will be made.

The Huracan Avio's name and design pays tribute to the Italian Air Force. The model is available in five colors, including a standard color of Grigio Falco. The names of these colors were all inspired by the coat-of-arms representing courses offered at the Italian Air Force Academy. To complement the body color, white or gray accents appear on the front spoiler lip and side view mirrors, and stripes run along the Avio's spine.

Door panels feature the logo "L63," with the "L" representing Lamborghini and the "63" representing the year the company was born. In between the letter and the number is a tricolor cockade, a symbol used to distinguish nationality in the world of aeronautics.

Look inside and you'll find special Alcantara material that is laser-engraved in a hexagonal motif. White stitching contrasts with an otherwise stark black interior. Standard features on this model include a lifting system, cruise control, and GPS navigation, at least in European spec.

Like the standard Huracan, the Avio features a 5.2-liter V-10 engine packing over 600 hp. It pairs with a seven-speed twin clutch gearbox. When we tested the Huracan recently, it managed to hit 60 mph in 2.8 seconds.

The Avio reaches dealerships this summer.
