HPD Lamb

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.

Not bad…

“In dreams I think of you.”

Pardon my "language" but that is "freakin" awesome! Wouldn't that be cool if HPD had those? I would work for free if they let me drive on of those.

It's a nice police cruiser, i would love to drive that vehicle, but i think we shouldn't have that, due to our economy and the engine is too big, waste alot of gas then the crown victoria that the HPD use already, and it cost like crazy, so the best option is either a Chervorlet Impala or an Crown Victoria.
