Lamborghini donates Aventador to Bologna Airport to be used as a "Follow Me" car for the next couple of weeks.
Automobili Lamborghini SpA’s 50th anniversary celebrations have included the reveal of the limited-edition Veneno, a 50th Anniversary edition Aventador, and a Grand Tour of 350 Raging Bulls that are currently en route from Milan to the factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese. Those flying in to Bologna to meet the supercar convoy will be welcomed by one more special Lamborghini on the tarmac of the city’s airport. Until May 19, a “Follow Me” Aventador will be used to guide airplanes to the terminal.
Painted in white with a checkered flag livery, 50 Anniversario logo and a lightbar atop the roof, the one-off 700hp V12 supercar will be piloted by the airport’s technical staff, who were given special instructions by Lamborghini test driver Mario Fasanetto. A radio has also been installed to keep the drivers in constant contact with the control tower. During the celebrations, cars from the Lamborghini museum will be on display at the airport. So if you’re thinking of visiting Italy, now might be a good time to do so.
