The Italian Highway Patrol is all set for those exhilarating car chases. The Lamborghini Huracan Polizia is the newest member of its fleet and is set to perform standard police work. In other words, it's not just an eye candy to make the Italian police force look good.
The Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 joins another Huracan that was first given to the authorities back in 2015. With two supercars roaming the streets, there's little doubt that the Italian police can be outrun by anyone trying to flee the long arm of the law. The brand new V10 supercar pumps out 610 horsepower along with 412 lb-ft of torque which makes it the perfect car to chase down suspects on foot or in their get-away cars. According to Autoweek, the Huracan Polizia was customized to fit its new job description. Among the add-ons to the already impressive Huracan are a computer, tablet, video camera, police radio, police siren, gun holster, and another holster for a "palette", a hand-held sign for signaling cars. The all-drive Huracan was also fitted with low-profile LED light bar and strobe lights behind the grille. To complete the bad-ass look, Lambo painted the super police car with blue and white livery.
CNET noted that the Huracan Polizia will not only participate in normal police operations, it will also be used in responding to medical emergencies and transporting donated blood and organs from hospital to hospital. The Huracan Polizia has a defibrillator and a refrigerator system added in its cargo area for the organs.
Recruiting expensive vehicles into the police force is fast becoming a common practice in some countries. The Audi S7 Sportback, for example, started its tour of duty with New South Wales Police last year while the Sidney Police Force has an Audi RS 4 Avant. Dubai's fleet of police cars includes a Lamborghini Aventador and a Bugatti Veyron. Lambo also gave two Gallardos to the Italian authorities before the Huracan Polizia was delivered.
