If you’re traveling to Bologna, Italy’s, Guglielmo Marconi Airport, you may see an unusual sight on the runways: a Lamborghini Huracán RWD. Lest you think the exotic is performing high-speed runs, it’s actually on the clock, pulling duty as a ‘Follow me’ vehicle. This is the sixth time Lamborghini has provided a vehicle to the airport, which is close to the brand’s headquarters, factory, and museum.
The Huracán is ready for work, which involves leading incoming and outgoing aircraft around the busy tarmac. Beyond its Arancio Borealis Pearl paint, the orange vehicle readily stands out, thanks to a multitude of graphics. On the hood and rear deck are checkered black flags, while the side sports an aggressive tri-shape pattern, reminiscent of the Aventador’s taillights. The graphic’s colors are that of the Italian flag, matching one found on the rear panel. The colors are also found on the front lower valance. The striking livery was created by the brand’s in-house design center, the Lamborghini Centro Stile.
Other additions to help pilots spy the supercar include an orange light-bar mounted on the roof and distinctive ‘Follow me’ stickers, too. A special radio keeps it in constant contact with the facility’s control tower.
Nothing mechanically has been altered, not that the Lambo is lacking in power. Its equipped with a 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V10 engine. It pumps out 580 hp which provides more than enough thrust to keep it out in front of the jetliners.
