Back in March, at the Geneva Auto Show all eyes were pointing at the very special car Automobili Lamborghini SpA just unveiled to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Ferruccio Lamborghini ... the extremely limited LP770-4 Centenario, only 20 to be built, all sold out before we even saw the car.
Up next is a Centenario LP770-4 Roadster that should be unveiled in a few weeks in the United States ... but next to the Centenario in Geneva was a matte blue finished Lamborghini Huracán ... also a limited edition ... but with all the attention the celebration model was receiving this special V10 just didn't receive the attention she deserved.
Fast forward a few months and the Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 Avio gets introduced in the Far East ... Lamborghini Hong Kong put together an impressive launch event at the Ritz-Carlton to unveil this limited edition V10 model to their customers, with only 250 units of the Avio available worldwide a limit of 15 units has been set to be available to Lamborghini Hong Kong.
We've all known the styling of several Lamborghini models was heavily inspired by the world of aviation and aeronautics, so pairing the two in a special edition Huracán does make sense, add the L63 logo for 'Lamborghini' and '1963' with the tricolor cockade just looks amazing on the bespoke Italian Air Force Academy inspired paints available on the Huracán Avio only.
As a standard option a Grigio Falco is available, a pearl metallic gray, but optionally four matte paints are possible: Blu Grifo, Grigio Nibbio, Grigio Vulcano and Verde Turbine ... the two cars shown in Hong Kong were finished in Blu Grifo over a white livery and Verde Turbine with a grey livery ... as an Ad Personam option you can have an orange livery too by the way.
The Huracán Avio shown in Geneva had glossy black Giano wheels, the two units in Hong Kong both show silver chrome Giano wheels, but the Mimas wheel is also possible as an option to the already impressive list of standard features on these special edition V10 models: for the Hong Kong market the Avio comes with LDS (Lamborghini Dynamic Steering), the Magneto-Rheological Suspension, front lifting system, parking sensors both to the front and the rear and a rear view camera among others ... but those can all be added to a regular Huracán too.
The Huracán LP610-4 Avio comes with a range of bespoke options that makes this model really different from the rest: the rear view mirrors, side sills, front sword come in either gray or white together with a set of color-coded stripes that run from front to rear. Also the L63 logo and cockade are unique to this model.
That same cockade returns on the seats inside as embroidery, while the seats show a laser-engraved hexagon pattern on the special Alcantara that is combined with leather ... all black with contrasting white stitching ... but again the Ad Personam Studio would be more than happy to help you put together a different combination for the interior.
The Lamborghini Hurcacán LP610-4 Avio edition is now available to order, but keep in mind we are talking about a limited edition model, so don't wait too long to sign that order form.
