The Italian automaker handed Antonio Manganelli, head of the Italian State Police, the keys to a Gallardo LP560 "Polizia" model that makes the Dodge Charger and Carbon E7 police cars look like a Crown Vic on its last legs.
The Gallardo Polizia is chock-full of high-tech equipment, not the least of which is that sweet 5.2-liter V10. It will propel the Gallardo Polizia to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, making it just the thing for chasing down criminals or making a run for espresso (or hot donuts).
The latest Polizia model is chock-full of high-tech gear, including a video camera and a GPS unit that will determine exactly how fast you were going when the “Italian Law” finally stops you. It even has a refrigerated cooler for transporting donor organs and a heart defibrillator behind the passenger seat. I wonder if it has cup holders.
I thought it would be fun to “Photoshop” the “real McCoy” above, and see what the Gallardo Polizia model would look like as an HPD patrol car.
“In dreams I think of you.”
