LAPD Receives a Lamborghini Gallardo for Promotional Purposes
The Los Angeles Police Department is proud to show off this police-decked Lamborghini Gallardo, complete with the department’s traditional black-and-white paint and “To Protect and to Serve” written on its sides. If you want to get a glimpse of the LAPD Lambo, as it is affectionately known, the car is scheduled ot make an appearance at the Los Angeles County Air Show at Fox Field in Lancaster on March 21st through 22nd.
In case you’re wondering, though, that’s as far as the extent of the LAPD’s use of the Gallardo. The police-dressed Gallardo isn’t exactly going to be added to the LAPD’s fleet and chase bad guys down the 101 Freeway.
The Gallardo is actually owned by Nathalie and Travis Marg of Light Source 1, Inc, both of whom generously donated the use of their Lamborghini to serve charitable events for the LAPD Air Support Team. Among its first stops is the aforementioned LA County Air Show later this week and after that, you can expect to see the LAPD Lambo to make more publicity stunts in the future for the department.
