Lamborghini Used As Guide For Landing Planes In Italy
Airplanes have recently been receiving a very luxurious and stylish welcome at Bologna's Guglielmo Marconi airport in Central Italy, after being guided by a Lamborghini "follow me" car, no less. The 610 horsepower supercar, which is pretty much capable of topping speeds of up to 200 mph (or 325 km/h) has a price tag nudging at a whopping £200,000, but as reports indicated, the airport hasn't paid a penny for their Lamborghini.
About the Aircraft-guiding Lamborghini
According to AeroNews TV, the airport was very lucky enough to be given a special loan from the local car manufacturer. All throughout the month of January, this very exceptional runway vehicle has guided aircraft after aircraft from along the ground on the airport platform towards their parking point.
Promoting Two Sides At The Same Time
Equipped with a bright flashing light on the roof, a luminous sign displaying the messages, "Follow-Me" and a radio that connects it to the control tower, the Lamborghini's glamorous track vehicle is very hardly unnoticeable. This attention, of course, has proved to be good publicity for both the Italian airport and the famous sports car company.
However, according to a report from Piston Heads, this attempt is not a first for the famous racing car maker. In May of 2013, Lamborghini has also lent the airport a "runway" Aventador to celebrate the company's 50th anniversary.
For the last four years, Bologna's airport has been featuring an exhibition space, showcasing some of Lambo's supercars. The Lamborghini factory is only 15 miles away in Sant'Agata Bolognese. This might have given ideas to yet another Italian supercar-maker, in nearby Maranello.
Will Ferrari Make Its Move?
Ferrari is also celebrating its 70th anniversary this year. If Ferrari would also enter this type of gimmick and have The 812 Superfast transformed into a Follow-Me car, the runway security staff at Bologna airport would certainly enjoy that more than ever.
