New Lamborghini Huracan Avio Pays Tribute To Italian Air Force [w/Video]

Along with the Centenario LP770-4, Lamborghini also brought an aviation-themed limited edition supercar to Geneva in the form of the Huracan Avio.

Even though Lamborghini haven’t had enough time (yet) to produce a silly amount of special edition current-gen cars, they’re slowly getting there as this Huracan Avio is set to join the ranks of the Aventador LP 700-4 Pirelli Edition, Veneno Roadster and the Centenario LP 770-4 itself as cars you seriously need to hurry up and purchase.

According to Hdmotori, the Italian automaker is building only 250 units of the Huracan Avio and is dedicating it to the air force – which is reflected by its Military Matte Blue exterior and having the “il Tricolore” in the form of badges and logos.

Though it’s yet to be confirmed, as Lamborghini are being surprisingly mum about this car, we’re likely looking at the regular LP 610-4 version underneath the special colorway, since the car’s front spoiler doesn’t match with the one found on the newer LP 580-2.

This means that once it takes off towards the horizon, it will pass the 100 km/h (62 mph) mark in 3.2 seconds, the 200 km/h (124 mph) mark in 9.9 seconds and will ultimately hit a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).
