Bologna airport in Italy will use a brand-new Lamborghini Huracan Evo as a Jet-Guided ‘Follow Me’ Car.
Bologna, The Italian airport is prepared to deploy the new Lamborghini Huracán Evo as a flow me car. The Follow me car would assist an aircraft in navigating from its runway to the Gate/Ramp.
This unique “Follow Me” edition of the Huracán Evo super sports car was created specifically to amuse passengers flying into Bologna’s “Guglielmo Marconi” International Airport, near Automobili Lamborghini’s headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese.
Additionally, the Lamborghini is decorated with an Italian flag and an inscription saying “Follow Me in Our Beautiful Country.” Additionally, it is equipped with flashing warning lights and a radio linked to the airport control tower for additional security.
Seventh Car – Lamborghini
The seventh automobile was unveiled on June 24, 2021. The Huracán EVO follow-me car, a super sports car powered by a naturally aspirated 640 horsepower, 5.2-liter V10 engine, is dressed in a livery created exclusively for Lamborghini Centro Stile. Arancione Matt’s checkered pattern, evocative of operating vehicles in aircraft moving zones, emerges from a Verde Turbine Matt foundation. On the outside, the phrase “Follow Me in Our Beautiful Country” is emphasized by the Italian flag.
Previous Lamborghini at Bologna
In 2013, the Italian supercar maker handed over six lead cars to BLQ to accompany airplanes into the parking lot and to the gates over eight years. Lamborghini’s previous car was the Huracan LP 580-2, which had rear-wheel drive and a naturally aspirated V10 5.2-liter engine that produced 580 horsepower and 540 Newton-meters of torque. However, the coupe was slower than the current car in terms of acceleration and dynamics: the Huracan LP 580-2 took 3.4 seconds to reach 60 mph and got a top speed of 195 mph.
What is Follow Me car?
Follow Me car are required at airports to guide the aircraft to the parking lot. The Follow Me car is sent in various circumstances, including poor visibility, an unusual path to the parking lot, or when the pilots are unfamiliar with the airport and seek assistance upon arrival. Occasionally, airport rules require that the movement be made only by a Follow Me vehicle.

It is priced at $231,274 and is powered by a 5.2-liter V-10 engine producing 640 horsepower.
The Huracán EVO is powered by a 5.2-liter naturally aspirated Lamborghini V10, improved engine that generates greater power and an emotionally charged sound and titanium intake valves and a streamlined, lightweight exhaust system. As a result, the Huracán EVO produces 640 horsepower (470 kW) at 8,000 rpm and 600 Newton meters of torque at 6,500 rpm. Furthermore, with a dry weight of 1,422 kilograms, the Huracán EVO achieves a weight-to-power ratio of 2.22 kilograms per horsepower and speeds from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in 2.9 seconds and in 9.0 seconds from 0 to 200 kilometers per hour . Furthermore, braking from 100 km/h to 0 takes only 31.9 meters, despite the car’s maximum speed of more than 325 km/h.
A redesigned front bumper lends the vehicle a low, forceful attitude, but more significantly, the front splitter with an integrated wing ensures aerodynamic efficiency. The larger air intakes include the Lamborghini design DNA’s Ypsilon form.
