In the Italian town of Cremona, owners of several parked cars came outside to find a gnarly string of twisted metal. The culprit was the driver of a year-old Lamborghini Gallardo. But not one person called the police. They were already there – climbing out of their totaled Lamborghini.
That’s right, the Italian police just totaled one of their three-strong Lamborghini fleet donated straight from the car-maker. The 204mph police package Lambos were outfitted with all kinds of gadgets to make even Inspector Gadget drool. Among the techy outfitting was a defibrillator and cooler-chest for donor organ transport.
The Italian Police flagship was on its way back from a display at a student job fair when it swerved to avoid another vehicle as it pulled out of a gas station. As it lost control it took out a number of parked cars before coming to rest beneath a small SUV.
And of course there was no shortage of cell-phone cameras on scene for all the different angles of the wreckage. You can check some of them out at Youreporter.it.
With 30 officers specially trained by Lamborghini to drive the vehicle, we know one Italian police officer that instantly made 29 enemies.
