An unfortunate state of affairs for this Lamborghini Huracán Avio; someone apparently hated it because it was beautiful, and it now looks like a harpy used it to sharpen her nails. The car was extensively damaged by ‘keying,’ ambushed out of vengeance or confusion while it sat innocently by the curb, waiting for its next opportunity to enlighten a highway.
The senseless act of assault to a supercar occurred in an unnamed European city. The futility of such an act is exceeded only by the petulant childishness of it. If it was nihilism…well, nihilism makes for a dandy coffee-shop pose, but it doesn’t live very well. And, if it was vindication, the time for the vandal in question to discover the glories of dialogue was long before this ever happened. More broadly, perhaps it signals a tipping point in growing resentment toward the rich.
The special edition Avio is a limited run of 250 examples. The special package is a cosmetic update of the standard Huracán; it pays homage to the Italian Air Force. The car will need to be repainted and refinished, and then life will go on.
