    Italian Cops Add Lamborghini to Fleet</FONT>



    ROME (AP) - Italian drivers who like to use highways as their personal speed-tracks are about to lose the race.

    Italy's state police presented a sleek new addition Friday: a Lamborghini Gallardo, with a top speed of 192 mph. The car is ready for service, bedecked with a siren, painted blue-and-white, and the word ``POLIZIA'' - ``police'' - stenciled on the side.

    Police showed it off at an anniversary celebration in Rome on Friday. They said the Lamborghini will be used on the Salerno-Reggio Calabria highway in southern Italy, for emergencies and to transport organs for transplant.

    Lamborghini, which is owned by Volkswagen and based near Bologna in northern Italy, donated the car. The six-speed, two-door luxury vehicle promises the ability to go from zero to 60 mph in four seconds, and has a list price of $165,000.

    When are they going to learn that you can transplant organs with helecopters (sp?) that will get the organ there faster.

    If that car tried to pull you over, would you stop? I'd figure it was a fake... that and if they really wanted to the driver could nudge the car and cause a lot damage... it makes about as much sense has fire departments having H1 Hummers... waste of money IMO (I know it was freee, however the cost to maintain that beast will be huge).

    With that said, I'd offer to be a cop in Italy if I got to be the driver of that car... with the lights going, you really could turn highways into your personal race track... :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:
