The Lamborghini Centenario might have been the talk of the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, but that wasn’t all the Italian automaker had to show off.
Also on display in Switzerland is the Lamborghini Huracan Avio, paying tribute to the world of aviation and aeronautics. Limited to 250 units, the Huracan Avio comes standard with premium features like lifting system, cruise control and GPS, but what makes it truly unique is its interior and exterior finishes. It’s available in five new color variants that were specifically developed for the model: the standard Grigio Falco with pearlescent finish and four matte shades of Blu Grifo, Grigio Nibbio, Grigio Vulcano and Verde Turbine.
According to Lamborghini, the color names were taken from the coats-of-arms representing courses at the Italian Air Force Academy. White or grey painted details contrast whichever body shade you choose while a double stripe runs along the roof and down the front hood. Further identifying the special Avio model is the L63 logo, where L stands for Lamborghini and ’63 is the year the company was founded.

The inside alternates black leather with a special Alcantara, boasting a laser-engraved hexagonal motif. Used for the first time in a Lamborghini, the material can be found covering the center section of the seat, the armrest, the knee support and part of the door panel. Also found in the interior is the L63 logo embroidered by hand onto the sides of the seats.
Powering the Lamborghini Huracan Avio is the familiar 5.2-liter V10 engine with 620 horsepower mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Expect to see the Huracan Avio arrive showrooms this summer.
