You might have heard about Essex police filling their diesel cars with petrol. ‘Had other things on their mind’, apparently. Good job, lads. Now let’s just hope the Italian cops don’t make the same mistake.

Cos we’d be sad to see them ruin their new car: a brand-new Lamborghini Gallardo LP560. It’s been donated to the Italian State Police to help ‘accident and crime prevention and sustain security on Italian roads’. Whatever. They’re going to rag it totally senseless, aren’t they?

There’ll be no out-running it either. This thing does 203mph and hits 60 mph in 3.7 seconds, thanks to 560bhp and four-wheel-drive. Enough, then, to chase-down Mario and Luigi as they spank their old Fiat Panda away from a bank heist.

It’s not the first time Lamborghini have given a car to the Old Bill. They gave them a last-generation Gallardo in 2004, which has since covered 87,000 miles, and another in 2005 that now shows 62,000 on the clock.

So if you’re in the Lazio area anytime soon, and considering criminal behaviour, forget it. Unless, of course, you want a ride in a bright-blue Lambo...

    I bet u won't mind being an Italian policeman ;-) Maybe they also have sexy body clad uniforms like the soccer team jerseys!

    Damn! There will be no out running that vehicle, sheesh, fast! I dig that part in the video where the driver "winks" his lights at the camera guy and then drops it.

    Lucky police man who drives that machine!

    Yeah Chris... besides that one stint... its a pretty weak video :(

    In CPT, the guys ride in Golf GTi's and BMWs.

    Ye, I've seen a couple MK1 GTI's with police guys driving them and then obviously the BMW's, somehow I don't think we'll be seeing a lambo locally ;)
