From today, May 6. until Sunday, May 19. 2013 you will be able to see a very special car on the tarmac of the Aeroporto di Bologna (G. Marconi) to guide the airplanes to their terminal ... the latest 'Follow me' vehicle is a real life Lamborghini Aventador, finished in white so pilots can see it, this amazing V12 also features a red checkered flag livery completed with 50° Anniversario logo.
Naturally the car shows large 'FOLLOW ME' signs and has a lightbar on top of the roof while a radio has been installed to keep in constant contact with the control tower where the airplanes are guided onto the correct landing script ... where this Lamborghini will be waiting to show the pilots and passengers to their appointed airport terminal.
During this time the car will in fact be driven by people from the Aeroporto di Bologna who have been instructed just how to drive this 700 hp V12 Bull by none other than Mario Fasanetto ... test driver for Automobili Lamborghini SpA, in fact the technical staff was trained to drive the Aventador right on a restricted part of the airport to get the conditions just right.
During the 50th Anniversary celebrations of Automobili Lamborghini SpA there will be a display of cars from the exclusive museum collection right in front of the Marconi Business Lounge entrance while two Lamborghinis are shown on the ground floor of the G. Marconi Airport in Bologna, these latter two will combine one classic Bull and a current exotic ... rumor has it these two models will be rotated on a quarterly interval ... the Aeroporto di Bologna is an official, technical sponsor for the 50° Anniversario di Lamborghini by the way.
