The Italians really know how to put on a show.
With the release of the Lamborghini Sian Roadster stealing all the spotlight this week, the Italian carmaker wanted to shine some of that light on it equally impressive Huracan Evo, with the news that the epic supercar will be a follow-me car at the Bologna airport, following in the footsteps of the Huracan RWD from last year. Bedecked in a tricolor Italian livery, it's a beautiful beacon and one helluva tourist attraction for car lovers.
According to a brief press release, Lamborghini acknowledges the Huracan Evo is a car that loves to be driven fast. Since June 25, the Bologna Marconi Airport has been the home of this special Huracan Evo. However, it is not just the car that's special, but the livery it's dressed in too.
"With a dedicated livery devoted to Italian spirit created by the Lamborghini Centro Stile, it will be paving the way for the planes on the strip during taxiing, that is to say for the movements of the planes on the ground. Honestly, who wouldn't follow her? Another good reason to look forward to traveling again soon."
The imagery is both patriotic and welcoming, but it's the details that really elevate this car to more than just a marketing stunt to encourage tourism in the region. Look closely and you'll notice that each brake caliper on each corner of the car matches that paint of the car in that corner. Regardless of its color scheme, the Huracan Evo is a $260,000 mid-engined exotic powered by a 5.2-liter V10 that sends 630 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch auto. With a 0-62 mph time of 2.9 seconds and a top speed in excess of 200 mph, the Bologna airport employee that gets to drive this every day must love his job.
