The Lamborghini Huracán of the Italian Police is to be assigned to the Highway Patrol in Bologna. It will be used both in normal police operations and for the urgent transport of blood and organs. Another Huracán has been operated by the Highway Patrol in Rome since 2015.
As is true for the standard model, the Huracán Polizia is equipped with a V10 engine that produces 610 HP, as well as all-wheel drive and a hybrid chassis made of aluminum and carbon fiber. The passenger compartment has been given the latest advancements in high technology including an on-board system consisting of a tablet supplemented with a computer, recording equipment and a video camera. These systems are used to document police operations on the road.
In addition to its high tech equipment, the Huracán Polizia is fitted with the traditional array of police equipment, such as a gun holster, portable extinguisher, standard VHF police radio and hooks for retaining the classic red-and-white, hand-held stop sign used to stop vehicles safely.
The Highway Patrol is constantly engaged in meeting the need for medical assistance. In 2016, there were 176 requests for assistance from all over Italy, requiring involvement from 462 police patrols. 120 patrols provided assistance to persons afflicted with special medical conditions, 111 and 74 transported organs and plasma/blood, respectively, 117 carried serums/vaccines and medications, and 40 teams were employed for other associated purposes.
