Fans visiting Italy’s Motor Valley might get a style of the area’s car-building custom as quickly as they land in Bologna. Airport officers renewed their partnership with Lamborghini to let a Huracán Evo free on the tarmac.
Lamborghini has offered the Bologna Guglielmo Marconi Airport with follow-me automobiles for a number of years. The newest raging bull to affix the fleet is an all-wheel-drive Huracán Evo powered by a naturally-aspirated, 5.2-liter V10 that delivers 631 horsepower. It is painted in a shade of inexperienced named Verde Turbine Matte and it wears particular orange decals, a livery paying homage to the one seen on the most recent Evo-based Tremendous Trofeo race automobile unveiled earlier in 2021. Pilots want greater than a head-turning design to know the place they are going, so the Huracán additionally beneficial properties a light-weight bar.
What’s a “follow-me automobile” you could ask? The Huracán’s principal process is to satisfy an incoming airplane on the finish of the runway and information it to the gate the place its passengers will disembark. The driving force is continually in touch with the management tower, adjustments will not be unprecedented, so Lamborghini put in a radio within the cabin. How officers will resolve who will get to drive the Huracán and who results in a 55-horsepower econobox hasn’t been revealed; we predict an intense, winner-takes-all spherical of drawing straws (or tagliatelle, contemplating we’re speaking a couple of metropolis globally identified for its pasta-based dishes).
Lamborghini’s newest follow-me automobile will likely be in service till January 2022, so that you would possibly catch a glimpse of it after touchdown in Bologna. It is not all the time out, but it surely’s simple to identify if it is on the clock as a result of a lot of the different automobiles on the tarmac are small Fiat fashions, like the five hundred and the Panda. And, in case you’re into airport car-spotting, hold your eyes peeled at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport: KLM nonetheless makes use of older Mercedes-Benz G-Class 4x4s as service autos.
