Lamborghini handed over the keys to a very special Huracán LP610-4 outfitted with police gear to the Italian State Police a couple days ago. The President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, Stephan Winkelmann, delivered the Polizia-liveried Huracán to Prefect Alessandro Pansa in a ceremony at the “Museo delle Auto Storiche della Polizia di Stato,” or in English, the Museum of Automotive History of the State Police. The museum is in Rome.

The Huracán LP 610-4 will replace two Lamborghini Gallardos which have been in use by the Italian state police since 2004 and 2008. The cars which were similarly outfitted by the factory before being handed over to the state police. Among the modifications made to the Huracán are a small LED lightbar on the roof, chosen for its slim profile and the fact that it doesn’t need mounting brackets to attach to the door frames, two LED strobes located in the front bumper, and two LED strobes built into the tail light assembly. The Huracán has also received a siren system, and police communications gear.

The Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 was unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show just a couple months ago, in March. It replaces the Gallardo as the smallest offering from Sant’Agata. While it may be the smallest offering on the outside, what’s under the hood (hatch?) packs a mean punch, with the 5.2-liter V10 making 610-hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. Capable of a 3.2 second sprint to 60 mph, the Huracán will top out at more than 202 mph. All wheel drive is standard on the Huracán, which is a good thing, and all that power is sent to the four wheels via a new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission called the Lamborghini Doppa Frizione. Yes, everything sounds better in Italian. Even the names of their dual-clutch gearboxes.

Even with the recent handover of the Huracán, Italy is still leagues behind the Dubai, United Arab Emirates police and their fleet consisting of… nearly every supercar and tuner vehicle imaginable. A few months ago Dubai received a Brabus-tuned G-class, the B63S – 700 Widestar, which was almost a yawn-worthy event since a lot of European countries’ police forces have G-wagens. Still, it may be a while before the Dubai police receive their Huracán. Perhaps they don’t need one; they have a Bugatti Veyron.
