New Lamborghini Huracan Reports for Duty With Italian Police
Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali paid a visit to the Italian Interior Minister and Chief of Police this week, but not for any nefarious reasons. Instead, he was handing off the keys of a new police-spec Lamborghini Huracan.
While our childish imagination sees such a police vehicle helping to stop seriously expensive heists from the Vatican, the vehicle will instead be assigned to normal police duties and will also assist in urgent deliveries of blood and organs. It’s the second Huracan on the police fleet.
The car is done up in the Italian police livery, sporting the official paint finish of the public servants, Police Medium Blue. The flashy white striping on the car strays a bit from the traditional police vehicles found throughout Rome, and there’s a nice accent stripe that is the same colors as the Italian flag. Helping complete the look, the car is equipped with P Zero Pirelli tires, with blue tinted sidewalls that were specially created for the police.
While the car packs the same 6.2-liter V10 engine that makes 610 horsepower, there are some other unique highlights on this police-spec model. There’s the traditional array of police equipment, including a gun holster, portable extinguisher, standard police radio and hooks for the hand-held stop sign.
Under the front trunk (frunk for short) is an interesting change to the traditional Huracan. In order to accommodate the unique task of urgent organ delivery, there’s a special refrigeration system fitted there, along with a defibrillator to assist with first aid.
In addition to delivering the new car to the police force, Lamborghini also moved its 2009 Gallardo Polizia from the Lamborghini Museum in Sant’Agata to its permanent home in the Highway Patrol Auto Museum in Rome.
