Even the exterior lines and some other matt exterior finishes are also inspired from the mean machines with wings.

Sant’Agata Bolognese/Geneva, 2 March 2016 – Alongside the Lamborghini Centenario, the Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 Avio will make its debut at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. Produced in a run of only 250, this special edition’s name, colors and materials pay tribute to the world of aviation and aeronautics.
From the outset, Lamborghini has been inspired by powerful fighter jets, from which it has borrowed technological, aerodynamic, ergonomic and stylistic solutions. References to the aeronautical world in Lamborghini’s current product line include digital instrument clusters; controls located on the center console as in airplane cockpits; the red engine ’start’ button; the tight stylistic language of exterior lines; and a broad range of matt exterior finishes.
The new Huracán Avio offers a host of premium functional features in its standard configuration including lifting system, cruise control and GPS*. But the true uniqueness of the Avio lies in its interior and exterior finishes. White or grey painted details contrast with the body color and enhance exterior details such as the tops of the side member, the side view mirrors and the lip on the front spoiler. A double stripe, again in white or grey, runs along the roof and down the front bonnet.
The door panels further identify the 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.
