Italian Lamborghini cops on the way to the Netherlands
According to the newspaper, the supercar and its officer occupants were en route to the Netherlands, though it is unclear why the police were making the trip. Sometimes, high-performance cars such as the Huracán are used for the urgent transport of donor organs or for police car chases.
The Italian police force has had two Lamborghinis as part of its fleet since 2017. The carmaker, which is based near Bologna in Italy, gifted the vehicles to the country’s police force to help them carry out urgent missions.
