Italy’s Bologna airport has new Lamborghini for planes to follow

No, this is not the super fleet of the Dubai police force, but it comes close. Italian luxury sports car manufacturer Lamborghini has delivered a new Huracán to Guglielmo Marconi Airport in Bologna. A “new” one, as it is the sixth car that the brand has been ‘generous’ enough to gift its local airport for use of leading aircraft on the runways.

The new “Follow-Me” Lamborghini Huracán RWD was delivered to Bologna Guglielmo Marconi Airport (BLQ) on December 10, 2019, the manufacturer announced. Designed by Lamborghini Centro Stile, the car sports a unique livery: the orange body is embellished with graphics depicting the typical machines maneuvering in the airport areas; the Italian flag is featured on both doors, roof, front and rear intakes; a chequerboard design tops the front and rear haunches.

The new Huracán, the sixth to be sent to the airport, is a rear-driven LP-580, which has a 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10 engine with 580-horsepower. Sadly, the new car, capable of reaching top speed of 199mph (320km/h), will not be able to live to its full potential on the new job as airport car speeds are limited to around 35mph (56km/h). Equipped with an orange light-bar on the roof, as well as a radio connected with the control tower of the airport, the car will be leading aircraft towards the parking stand or taxiing out to the runway. Safe to say, the vehicle will surely stand out.
