Patrolling the streets of Rome in style
On the streets of Rome, it is not uncommon to find supercars racing down narrow cobblestoned lanes and back alleys. What’s more, the Italian police force is famous for its fleet of patrol cars that include super sports cars. This May, Lamborghini donated to the polizia (that’s Italian for police) its latest edition of the Huracán LP610-4.
Stephan Winkelman, Automobili Lamborghini CEO, presented the car to Prefect Alessandro Pansa, the head of the Polizia di Stato (Italian State Police) in Rome. ‘We have a strong and fitting relationship with the Italian State Police. The new Lamborghini Huracán stands for Italian super sports car excellence and we are proud to provide it to the Italian State Police to carry out the specialist tasks these police cars undertake,’ said Winkelmann.
‘Today is an important day, since two Italian excellences meet and strengthen their relationship which started in 2004 with the handing over of the Lamborghini Gallardo to the Italian State Police. In the last ten years, the Italian State Police used the car for prevention purposes and in order to enhance street security,’ Pansa said, during the hand-over ceremony on 22 May.
Specially equipped to suit the needs of the crime-busting heroes, Huracán LP 610-4 Polizia has life-saving features that makes these patrol cars all the more awesome. The luggage compartment at the front comes complete with a specialised refrigeration system that enables safe transportation of donor organs!
