This week Lamborghini donated the Italian State Police a special version of its new Huracán super sports car, the Huracán LP 610-4 Polizia.

Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, handed over the car to the head of the Italian State Police, Prefect Alessandro Pansa, in a ceremony in Rome at the "Museo delle Auto Storiche della Polizia di Stato" or if you don't speak Italian, the Museum of Historical Cars of the State Police.

The new Huracán LP 610-4, which replaces the Gallardos used by the Italian police force since 2004 and 2008, features a 5.2 l V10 engine with 610 hp, and reaches a top speed over 202 mph.

The new Lamborghini Huracán police car will begin service within the end of this year in order to sustain security on Italian roads by continuing accident and crime prevention.
