Somewhere in Italy, there is a very lucky State Police Officer whose new cruiser is this Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 dressed in Polizia livery. In a ceremony held today in Rome, Lamborghini President and CEO Stephan Winkelmann handed over the Huracán’s keys to the Italian State Police.
This isn’t the first Lamborghini we’ve seen hit the beat with the Italian fuzz, but it is certainly the freshest, best looking iteration we’ve ever beheld. The new Huracán, and a second likely on its way, replaces the Gallardos used by the government since 2004 and 2008.
Though the Lambo is really going into active duty, the police will generally be using the $240,000 car to keep the peace and security on Italian roads by generating awareness for accident and crime prevention. And in a land where supercars are born, the Huracan serves as an important messenger to all those would-be crooks looking to break the law in a high-speed game of hot pursuit. With a top speed of 202 mph and a 0-to-62 time of just 3.2 seconds, there are very few cars able to outrun it.
Then again, no matter how fast the bad guys run, they can’t outrun a radio.

The all-new 2015 Lamborghini Huracán serves as the entry model into the brand’s stately presence. Costing roughly $240,000, the Huracán is some $35,000 more than the outgoing Gallardo, but its performance and updated features make it worth the entry fee. And hey, what’s another $35k when you’re buying a Lambo?
Powering the Huracán is a 5.2-liter V-10 making 610 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque sent to all four wheels. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission shoots off gears with utter precision. From a standstill, 62 mph comes in just 3.2 seconds on its way to a 202-mph top speed.
