Watch: Italian Police Get a Lamborghini to Help Fight Crime

The Italian police are already known for their fashionable uniforms — but now they’ll be known for having their very own Lamborghini, complete with LED light bar, four sirens, and a police radio, too.

Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann handed over the keys of a Huracán LP 610-4 Polizia on Thursday, which will see actual service by the end of the year, said Alessandro Pansa, head of the Italian police.

“This car will offer more security to those driving in our highways, and to those who need to be rescued in special circumstances,” Pensa said. “It’s a car that will make our country more safe.”

Among the Huracan’s features are a refrigerator to transport organs, a defibrillator in the trunk and a radar that can send speed and license plate information in real time. Of course, let’s not forget the 5.2-liter, V10 engine which helps the car hit 62 mph in just 3.2 seconds. The Lambo is expected to cost around $315,000.

The Huracán LP610-4 is the fifth car given to Italian police by Lamborghini, according to the Italian press agency.
