Remember that Lamborghini that was donated to the Italian Police?

Remember this sweet looking machine?

Well it was a custom built 560hp 5.2-liter V10 Lamborghini Gallardo that was delivered back in October to the Italian State Police. Not counting the sweet paint job it also sported everything from real time wireless video recorder to GPS. In other words a car every cop would drool and beg to get their hands on.

Here’s a couple of other shots of it as well as a video of it going through a test run.


Well that was then and this is now


Today, a bandaged and bruised police driver may have had a tough time explaining how he managed to write off one of the force’s prized Lamborghinis when he rammed it so hard into a line of parked cars that one of the stationary vehicles ended up on the police car’s roof.

According to the police, the crash was caused by the driver of a slow-moving Seat Ibiza who emerged without looking from a service station, clipping the Lamborghini and sending the vehicle swerving into the parked cars.

The front end of the Lamborghini was crushed in the accident, near Cremona, and the driver and a passenger were injured, although not seriously.
