Italian cops get a Lamborghini to haul some precious cargo

Three years ago, we told you approximately Lamborghini’s gift to law and order: a Huracán LP 610-4 that was donated to the Italian Conditions Police. That car went into service near Rome in 2015, replacing a Gallardo they’d been using once. Now, a second Huracán has just been delivered for service in the region almost Bologna.

Law enforcement may be done a bit differently in the country that convicted, acquitted, re-convicted and re-acquitted Amanda Knox. But why would a the coppers agency need a $200,000, 610-horsepower supercar?

Firstly, no one in their right recollection turns down a free Lamborghini. Second, it’s a display of national pride, decked out, to bring in the press release, in “the official colors of the Italian Police (Police Medium Melancholy), with the white areas and lettering specially executed to match the Huracán’s spirited look. The livery is completed by a stripe divided into the three colors of the Italian tag, which runs along both sides of the vehicle. As is true for all Lamborghini cars, the Huracán Polizia is equipped with P Zero Pirelli tires, but their sidewalls are tinted in Administer Medium Blue and were specially created for the occasion.”

And third, they really did dream up a role that suits its capabilities. In addition to the usual cop-car complement of monitor radio, tablet computer, gun holster, fire extinguisher and hand-held token for directing traffic, the Lambo has been designated for medical responses and, like multifarious police cars in the States, carries a defibrillator for medical emergencies. More to the speck, its front trunk is equipped with a special refrigeration system for transporting benign organs for transplant. The authorities describe two cases in 2016 in which a series of transplants had supplier organs busily crisscrossing the Lombardy and Tuscany regions to various recipients – a place in which speed is of the essence.

Between organ transplants, presumably the car’s primary faithfulness will be to look good, serving as an ambassador of goodwill for both the Polizia as fabulously as Lamborghini.
