Default Italian Polizia crash Gallardo

Italian police have crashed their most valuable patrol car, a 165,000-euro (£150,000) Lamborghini.

The accident happened near the northern Italian town of Cremona where it was on display at a student jobs fair.
Reports say the car swerved to avoid another vehicle which crossed into its path, ploughing into two stationary cars. It was damaged beyond repair.
One of the two officers in the vehicle at the time of the incident suffered a broken rib, the other received bruises.
The Lamborghini car, painted in the Italian police force's blue and white colours, was a gift to the force from the carmakers in 2004.
The six-speed luxury vehicle with a 500-horsepower engine is designed to go from zero to 100km/h (60mph) in four seconds.

I would never want to see the Polizia Scrap a Murcielago! That would be very disheartening!

The crashed Gallardo seems to be the version before the LP 560-4.

Now you're thinking. Alas! both have front end damage. This must have been a high speed crash because the other car is (practically) parked on the Lambo's roof.

Were the cops going too fast ?

Angry One more Lamborghini Totalled

This one's in Italy. A Lamborghini Gallardo police patrol car was totalled.

Source : Caters,Dailymail UK,*************

Quote:
The car was one of the two supercars which were donated to the Italian police by Lamborghini to keep up with speeding motorists driving other supercars. The two police officers involved managed to get away with only minor injuries. No other injuries were reported from the crash site.
The car which was shown to students was returning to its base Bologana after being resprayed in Police colors when the accident happened.

Who cares though !! End of the day am sure the insurance would pay for it and they prolly will end up with another lambo in their stables.
