Lamborghini India has today launched the Huracan Special Edition called as the Avio. Priced at Rs 3.71 crores (ex-showroom, Delhi) the car is globally limited only to 250 units. But if you want to grab one, you just have a window of just 5 days! Paying tribute to the various achievements of the Italian Air Force, the Huracan Avio is truly a work of art.
Engine and Performance:
Lamborghini has always been inspired from the world of aviation and aeronautics and the Avio is the closest thing to a fighter jet you will get on the roads. Powering the car is the same 5,204 cc V10, 90°, MPI (Multi Point Injection)+ DSI (Direct Stratified Injection) mill churning out 593 bhp of maximum power at 8,250 rpm and 560 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm. Mated to this a 7 speed Lamborghini Doppia Frizione gearbox helping the car sprint from standstill to 100 kmph in 3.2 second while the top speed stands at 325 kmph.
Externally, the Huracan Avio gains white or grey painted details which contrast the overall paint scheme. These can be found on the lip of the front spoiler, ORVMs, hood, and the roof. The door panels get a 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 colour variants, specifically developed for this model:
- Grigio Falco with pearlescent finish
- Blu Grifo
- Grigio Nibbio
- Grigio Vulcano
- Verde Turbine.
The name of these colours are taken from the coats-of-arms representing courses at the Italian Air Force Academy. If we talk about interiors, 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. You also get a special hand-enameled plate on the driver’s side window.
