The new age Lamborghini cars seem to take inspiration from fighter jets. The new Lamborghini Huracan Avio, a limited edition Huracan LP-6104 which was designed as a tribute to the Italian Air force, is the first limited edition Huracan to be sold in India.
The supercar priced at 3.71 crore, is the closest one can get to a jet plane and resembles the livery of one. There will be only 250 editions released, and Indians have a 5 day window to book one.
The Huracan’s retina-searing lines make it the sharpest thing to come out of a wind-tunnel yet. Draped in a special shade dubbed ‘blu frigo’, it’s come a long way from its natural abode at a naval air-base. Further heating up the mercury levels are two white racing stripes which run across the bonnet and over the roof.
An airforce cockade flanks the doors, with the L-63 sign denoting the year in which Lamborghini was founded. Apart from that, the car gets specially cut alloys and all the optional equipment as standard, which includes exclusive, laser-cut Lamborghini emblems etched into the bucket seats.
However the Huracan Avio does not get any changes under the hood though, as it is still powered by the humongous naturally-aspirated 5.2-litre V10 engine that comes with a 7-speed double-clutching gearbox. What this means in simple words is that the car can go from a standstill to 100 km/h in a mere 3.2 seconds and achieve a top speed of 325 km/h.
Lamborghini offers five new colour variants, specifically developed for this model: the Grigio Falco with pearlescent finish, Blu Grifo, Grigio Nibbio, Grigio Vulcano, and Verde Turbine. It may be interesting to note that the colours’ names are taken from the coats-of-arms representing courses at the Italian Air Force Academy.
All in all, this new Lambo seems to be a tribute to aviation as well as aerodynamics. The supercar, was first unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year along with the Lamborghini Centenario
