Italian Highway-Police Gets Lamborghini Cars..

Sat Oct 25, 2008 1:24 pm

..currently two super cars ( Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 ) have been delivered -one to Rome ,the second one to Bologna highway-police.
The cars can speed up to 310 Km/H and policemen using the car get special driving lessons.
The cars are equipped with fridges,allowing them to speedily transport organs in case of organ-transplants.

Why don't they just fly organs by chopper. I'll bet they do it already and it was just a justification to buy lambos

Thank you. Even Lambos can't get through traffic, and last I heard the rest of the world does organ transplants just fine without Lambos.

Wasn't that car donated by lambo to the police? Since the police got it anyway, they use it to good effect for donor transport and public relations.

What about fuel cost for that Lamborghini? I'm sure it must be expensive. But I still wish the Minneapolis/St. Paul police had those. At school yesterday in auto shop the Bloomington police brought a Dodge Charger.
It ain't no normal MD80 its a Super 80!

Not quite. The one shown on the photo is a brand new Gallardo LP560-4 replacing one of the older police Gallardos due to high mileage.

They gas cost the same as for normal Fiat, but still the Lambo consumes more  Wink

They seemed to have a lot of fun with them, have seen them on TV chasing tourists Big grin

Quoting Beaucaire (Thread starter):

AFAIK they are "donated" by Lamborghini.

These are the new ones; in 2004 Lamborghini donated two cars to the Police. In four years, they have made about 140.000 kilometres.

I can't believe I'm sitting here thinking that the Porsche is dorkier than the Camaros! Or is it just the 3 cops standing around it wondering who is going to sit on someone's lap.

It's because it's a boxter.

I strongly advice the use of diapers before watching the following video:

Now you've got a sight of the speed that this babe can reach in the Italian autostrade, and yes, they can do it legally. I WANT TO BE A POLICE DRIVER!
