The $175,000 Police Supercar Snapshot...

It seems that I am more than lucky stumbling upon exotic cars lately… 

After the $440K silver Porsche Carrera GT and the $450K black SLR McLaren it’s now the turn of a bright yellow $175K Lamborghini Gallardo “Police Edition” which is currently on display at their showroom in London and which I naturally snapped with my Treo 650…

I have no idea whether this model is ‘for real’ or just for show but I can imagine that there might be some situations where London’s Metropolitan Police can find a use for a four wheel drive, aluminium frame, 520bhp, 196mph, 0–60 in 4.0 seconds supercar such as the Gallardo to catch some baddies…


I certainly wouldn’t mind being chased or even pulled over by one of these cars – I would undoubtedly be more than cooperative…

UPDATE: I finally discovered that this car was not quite a joke after all…  It appears to be a genuine police car for the start of the Gumball3000 race that started out of London yesterday and which will finish in Los Angeles in 8 days…  You can see this Gallardo among the many other supercars on flickr. [Thanks for the tip Shiro]

Treonauts always look for something unusual

Hell yeah I loved to have that car.

Lambo donated several Gallardos to the police force to assist with emergency organ transport as well as taking down speeders. Yellow that is not though, its orange.

I'm beginning to think this is a site about exotic cars, rather than Treos...

Can we please limit the number of exotic car postings? There are plenty of those on the net already...

I love the car pics, keep'em coming.

More cars please! How about shots from the passenger seat?

You guys should probably start frequenting other sites then...

This is TREOnauts...not Carnauts(although the latter IS kinda fun to say:-P).

In Italy the police has 2 Lamborghini Gallardo. One is always used on highway A3 (Salerno-Reggio Calabria), the other is used in north/center. I saw one only one time.

Was that police car painted by the Partridge Family? Definately not for an undercover/unmarked police assignment.
