What's all this about?

A Lamborghini Huracán that gives us the opportunity to do a load of bad puns about it being a 'flying machine', or that it 'feels like it's got afterburners'. It's the Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 Avio, it's inspired by aviation and it made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

Did it? I don't seem to remember it...

That's probably because the poor Avio had to share stand-space with the 770hp demon that was the Centenario, which is rather more gobsmacking than a Huracán in some special paint.

Oh, does the Avio not have any more power?

No, it's a styling exercise, really, although the fact only 250 of these special LP 610-4s will be made at least guarantees it some collectability. White or grey detailing is employed for the door mirrors, front splitter and the side sills, with whichever colour is chosen by buyers repeated in the two stripes running over the top of the car. These items will then contrast with whichever of five body shades you opt for: standard Grigio Falco pearlescent or one of four optional matte hues called Blu Grifo, Grigio Nibbio, Grigio Vulcano and Verde Turbine (you'll notice fully 60 per cent of the hues on offer are grey). All of these are names taken from the coats-of-arms representing courses at the Italian Air Force Academy. The final detail is an L63 graphic (Lamborghini, 1963; the year the company formed) and an aviation nationality identifier, an Italian tricolour cockade, sandwiched between the L and the 63, which features on the doors.

How about the inside?

That L63 logo is hand-stitched into the sides of the seats. Black leather and Alcantara with a laser-etched hexagon motif on it alternate within, plus white stitching and a hand-enamelled plate on the driver's side window.

What if I don't want an Italian Air Force colour or Blockbusters-inspired interior trim?

Then you can use the Ad Personam personalisation service Lamborghini offers to paint it any colour you like... thus completely negating the point of having an Avio. You might as well stick with a regular 610-4.

It'll still be quick, though, right?

Of course. Its 610hp 5.2-litre V10 powers all four wheels and allows the Avio to sprint from 0-62mph in 3.2 seconds, before topping out at 203mph.
