I know exactly what you’re thinking: apparently the Italian troopers were insatiable. The regular Gallardo wasn’t good enough? In 2004, a Lamborghini Gallardo began a stint in the police service with tasks that – generally speaking – weren’t related to tracking down high-octane speeders. Transporting organs for transplants was one of the Gallardo’s more likely tasks, in theory.
That first Gallardo has almost 88,000 miles on its odometer. A second Gallardo used in more northern areas since ’05 has almost clocked almost 70,000 miles.
Apparently Lamborghini and the polizia believed more everything was required. The upgraded LP560-4 features 59 more horses than the original Gallardo with fewer pounds to propel. Thirty officers are trained in driving the Gallardo as well as in the use of its medical equipment. Thus, police personnel accustomed to Fiat Bravos won’t be seen steering the LP560-4 off a cliff at 200mph.
