Italian Police’s new car is a Lamborghini Huracan

The Lamborghini Huracan is the newest addition to the fleet of Italian Police’s cars.

The 200mph supercar has been modified on the needs and requests of Italian public authority and was unveiled during a press conference at the Interior Ministry in Rome on March 30, 2017. During a following ceremony, the keys of the Huracan were delivered to Interior Minister Marco Minniti while the car will operate, in true police style, on the roads of northern Italy.

It’s not that the Lamborghini Huracan will be used to patrol the streets, obviously: it will, on the other hand, used for special assignments such as the urgent transport of blood and organs and will run the highways surrounding the Italian city of Bologna. Finally - and unsurprisingly - it will be a tremendous help to chase down speeders.

In terms of technology, the Lamborghini Huracan specifically designed for the Italian police features an all-wheel drive and aluminum-carbon fiber hybrid chassis and a series of crime-fighting gadgets, such as an on-board police tablet computer, the standard cop-issue gun holster, portable extinguisher, VHF police radio and even hooks to hold the "paletta," the traditional hand-held red-and-white "stop" sign, in place. And what about the color? Of course, the Huracan has been painted in the official color of the Italian Police - the “police medium blue”.

In terms of engine, this supercar is obviously nothing short but outstanding: aspirated V10 engine capable of 610 horsepower, and with an impressive 3.2 seconds from 0 to 62 miles per hour. Top speed of this exclusive Lamborghini? 201 mph, equivalent to 325 kilometers per hour.

It’s not the first time that a luxury car is donated to the Italian Police. In fact, another Lamborghini Huracan was used by cops in Rome since 2015, while a Gallardo LP560-4 will officially start its retirement as soon as the new Huracan starts its service.
