Mango in a Lambo: Dubai supermarket cheers up residents with novel delivery service
The Pakistan Supermarket in the emirate is bringing the sweet fruit to people's doors amid the coronavirus pandemic
It's not the most practical vehicle.
The boot space is a tiny 70 litres, you don't want to muck up the interior and it won't match a delivery bike if a swift U-turn is needed.
But a Lamborghini Huracan is being deployed, Dubai style, to bring sweet mangoes to people's doors amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The novel concept is by the Pakistan Supermarket who wanted to bring joy to residents after months of restrictions.

"The prime purpose of the mango in the Lambo is just to make the kids happy," says Jhanzeb Yaseen, the store's managing director. "They are really happy to see a Lamborghini arriving outside their homes with their beloved mangoes inside.
"This is a small effort on our part to reduce stress from our customers and the community we serve."
The supermarket says they are revving up for a busy summer, but there will be no excuses for a slow delivery.
