A specially modified version of the Lamborghini Huracan has been gifted to the Italian State Police force.
Officially dubbed the Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 Polizia, this special bull features the same drivetrain seen in regular Huracans. That means a few lucky officers will experience the might of Lamborghini’s 449kW/560Nm 5.2-litre V10. Power is channelled towards terra firma by a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and an all-wheel drive system.
Mounted on the windscreen next to the rear-view mirror is a video camera, which can be used to record any suspicious or illegal activity. Videos are automatically tagged with the car’s GPS location, direction and speed. Utilising a radio data transmission system, the Huracan sends all its imagery to a police station where the video can be archived, and any relevant number plates extracted and cross-referenced in real-time.
Run-of-the-mill police equipment is also housed aboard the Huracan, including gun holsters, police radio gear and a paletta, a traditional stop sign used by Italian police to inform motorists to pull over.
Like the police Lamborghinis that preceded it, the Huracan Polizia will do more than just regular police work, it will be called upon for medical emergencies. To that end, this Huracan has a defibrillator on-board, as well as a refrigerated compartment, in the front trunk, to allow for the transport of organs.
Clad in its regulation white and police blue bodywork, with bold Polizia lettering, this Huracan is fitted with a specially developed emergency light bar on the roof. The low profile unit has been designed to withstand the car’s top speed, which, despite its many policing additions, remains in excess of 325km/h.
The first Huracan Polizia was handed over to Prefect Alessandro Pansa at the Museum of Historical Cars of the State Police (pictured above). This Huracan replaces the 2004 to 2008 model year Gallardos currently used by the Italian police.
