See The ₦155m Lamborghini Huracan Supercar That Every Plane Must Follow At Italy’s Bologna Airport



Lamborghini has introduce 5 new Huracanfollow me” cars at the Bologna Guglielmo Marconi International Airport to guide planes to the runway and help them take off.

In addition to the welcome note and the “FOLLOW ME” that is printed across its doors, the new Lamborghini also comes with livery which consists primarily of matte grey paint with yellow accents that is meant to catch the attention of pilots. It is also equipped with a flashing light bar on the roof.

The low body of the supercar allows it to slip beneath the wings and bodies of planes on the ground and each driver wears a branded Lamborghini uniform.

Responsible for the design is Lamborghini’s in-house Centro Stile design facility. The rear-wheel driven Huracan LP580-2 model is powered by a 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V10 engine that can achieve 0-62mph (0-99kmh) in 3.4 seconds with a top speed of almost 200mph (321kmh).

A total of five special ‘follow me‘ cars have been in operation since 2013. Each are equipped with a set of flashing lights, warning signs, and a radio linked to the airport control tower.

The Italian supercar maker currently has a green Lamborghini Aventador SVJ and yellow Lamborghini Urus on display at one of the airport’s terminals.
