These automotive works of art are supposed to be able to go fast, look good, and do nothing else. Yet people are putting them to work.
Take the Lamborghini Aventador. It’s already being used as a police car in Dubai (along with a Ferrari FF and Aston Martin One-77, among others) and now it’s being used as a taxi. However, it’s not the kind of taxi you’d expect.
According to AutoEvolution, this checkered Lamborghini is used to guide aircraft at the Bologna Airport as they taxi to and from terminals.
A car might seem insignificant from the cockpit of a 777, but the Aventador will be easy to spot.
As if the sight of a $406,905 supercar rumbling down the tarmac isn’t enough, the Aventador sports flashing lights and decals that say “Follow Me.”
With a 6.5-liter, 691 horsepower V12 and a top speed of 217 mph, the Aventador shouldn’t have any trouble keeping up with taxiing jets. We think this is the perfect use for the Lambo.
Since the Aventador already looks like a grounded fighter plane, airport duty seems very appropriate.
The Aventador showed up on May 6, and will continue pacing planes until May 19.
Maybe if other airports followed Bologna’s lead, there would be fewer delayed flights.
