A new Lamborghini Huracán was delivered to the Italian Police, Polizia. The police version of its Huracán super sports car called, the Huracán Polizia, will be utilized by the Italian Highway Patrol in Rome.
The Huracán of the Italian Police is to be assigned to the Highway Patrol in Bologna. It will be used both in normal police operations and for the urgent transport of blood and organs. Another Huracán has been operated by the Highway Patrol in Rome since 2015.
The Huracán Polizia is used in highway patrol service, and for first aid and emergency medical transport. It sports the official colors of the Italian Police (Police Medium Blue), with the white areas and lettering specially executed to match the Huracán’s dynamic look. The livery is completed by a stripe divided into the three colors of the Italian flag, which runs along both sides of the vehicle. As is true for all Lamborghini cars, the Huracán Polizia is equipped with P Zeros, but their sidewalls are tinted in Police Medium Blue and were specially created for the occasion.
As is true for the standard model, 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 aluminum and carbon fiber. These outstanding characteristics ensure extreme performance and maximum stability, even at very high speeds.
Some of equipment offered in the Huracan Polizia are: an on-board system consisting of a tablet supplemented with a computer, recording equipment and a video camera; and an array of police equipment.
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.
The Highway Patrol is constantly engaged in meeting the need for medical assistance. In 2016, there were 176 requests for assistance from all over Italy, requiring involvement from 462 police patrols. 120 patrols provided assistance to persons afflicted with special medical conditions, 111 and 74 transported organs and plasma/blood, respectively, 117 carried serums/vaccines and medications, and 40 teams were employed for other associated purposes.
