The Italian Highway Patrol in Rome just received a Lamborghini Huracan as a patrol car. The keys were handed over to Interior Minister, Senator Marco Minniti, at the Viminale building by Stefano Domenicali, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini. Also attending the ceremony was Chief of Police and General Director of Public Safety Franco Gabrielli.
The Huracán of the Italian Police is to be assigned to the Highway Patrol in Bologna which will be used in normal police operations as well as transporting organs. This is the second Lamborghini in service. For those of you who think you can outrun the police like the scene in Tokyo Drift, forget about it. Higher chances that this will outrun your car.
The Huracán Polizia is used in highway patrol service, and for first aid and emergency medical transport. Sporting the colours of the Italian Police, the Lamborghini Huracan is equipped with P Zero Pirelli tires, but their sidewalls are tinted in Police Medium Blue and were specially created for the occasion.
The Huracán Polizia is equipped with an aspirated V10 that produces 610 hp, as well as all-wheel-drive and a hybrid chassis made of aluminium and carbon fiber.
The passenger compartment of the Huracán Polizia has been given the latest advancements in high technology. The vehicle is equipped with an on-board system consisting of a tablet supplemented with a computer, recording equipment and a video camera. These systems are used to document police operations on the road.
In addition to its high tech equipment, the Huracán Polizia is of course fitted with the traditional array of police equipment, such as a gun holster, portable extinguisher, standard VHF police radio and hooks for retaining the classic red-and-white, hand-held stop sign used to stop vehicles safely.
Medical assistance and organ transport
An essential task of the Huracán Polizia is to provide medical assistance. To this end, the luggage compartment at the front of the vehicle hosts a special refrigeration system for the urgent transport of organs to be transplanted. To provide emergency first aid to the injured, the Huracán is also equipped with a defibrillator, which can save lives by inducing targeted electric shocks that restore normal heartbeat in case of serious arrhythmia or ventricular fibrillation.
