Italian police force now owns a Lamborghini

In the police force supercar fleet race, Dubai still comes out on top.

It would seem that recruiting supercars into the police force fleet is the new fad. After the New South Wales Police introduced an Audi S7 Sportback and the Sydney Police force enlisted an Audi RS4 Avant in its ranks, Italy’s State Police has unveiled a spanking new Lamborghini Huracan. 

Presented to them by the German-owned company, the Huracan boasts a top speed of 300kmh (190mph) and can go from 0-100kmh in 3.2 seconds. It  will also replace the police force’s Lamborghini Gallardo. The Gallardo – which was used by the force for emergency transfers of organs destined for transplant operations and blood supplies needed at accident sites – will be retired and moved to the police car museum in Rome. 

The new supercar, set to be used by the highway patrol team in Bologna, features on-board recording equipment and a security camera as well as a special refrigeration system for the urgent transport of organs to be transplanted.

Taking delivery of the new Huracan at a ceremony in Rome, State Police head Alessandro Pansa says it will be used to "enhance street security" and crime prevention. "This Lamborghini represents Italy and the quality of its people," Pansa said, "The same we find in both men and women who wear the uniform of the State Police."

Of course, none of this even comes close to the world record fleet commanded by the Dubai Police. We should know, we spent time with them in some of their unreal supercars. Here’s a 360-degree look inside a Dubai Police supercar:
