Fanatics visiting Italy’s Motor Valley may 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 vehicles 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 harking back 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 might ask? The Huracán’s most important process is to satisfy an incoming aircraft 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, modifications will not be remarkable, so Lamborghini put in a radio within the cabin. How officers will determine 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 recognized for its pasta-based dishes).
Lamborghini’s newest follow-me automobile will probably be in service till January 2022, so that you would possibly catch a glimpse of it after touchdown in Bologna. It isn’t all the time out, nevertheless it’s straightforward to identify if it is on the clock as a result of a lot of the different vehicles on the tarmac are small Fiat fashions, like the five hundred and the Panda. And, when you’re into airport car-spotting, maintain your eyes peeled at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport: KLM nonetheless makes use of older Mercedes-Benz G-Class 4x4s as service autos.
