Lamborghini has given Bologna various liveries for its follow-me cars in the past, one being a bright yellow livery in 2016 on a Huracán. Besides the eye-catching color, the Huracan also featured a chequered flag design across the front and back as well as an outline of the Bologna skyline down the sides. A light bar was added to the standard spec Huracán to perform its duties of a follow-me car.
