    The Italian State Police was presented with a new Lamborghini Huracán on March 30. The mind-blowing “hurricane” vehicle will hit the roads in Bologna with a police highway patrol team on board.

    The Huracán, which means "hurricane" in Spanish, is the latest model of the luxury sports car manufacturer. With a top speed of 300 km/h and acceleration from 0-100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, it will become the second Lambo to be put in the service of the country's police.

    Besides day-to-day duties, the supercar will be also involved in saving lives. Just like its predecessor, the Lamborghini Gallardo, the Huracán will be used for emergency transfers of blood and organs needed at accident sites. The new car also features onboard recording equipment, a security camera and even a defibrillator.

    "We are very proud to continue our collaboration with the police and to be able to contribute to bringing the forces of law and order closer to the people," said Lamborghini's chairman and CEO, Stefano Domenicali, during the presentation ceremony at the Interior Ministry in Rome.
