Supercar Police Cruiser Showdown: Ferrari 458 Italia Polizia vs Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4
For a long time now, Lamborghini has been supplying the Italian State Police with a new custom Gallardo each time there is a model refresh. The most current vehicle in their fleet is a Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 capable of 203 mph, all decked out in blue and white po po livery, with flashing lights and all. But what if Ferari’s latest and greatest 458 Italia was introduced into this elite crime fighting squad? That’s the question that artist S0ulcreat1ve has tried to answer with his quick police concept of the newest and fasest ‘prancing horse’ out of Maranello.
As for the current Lambo operated by the Italian Polizia Municipale, this Gallardo LP560-4 is pretty extraordinary. It comes outfitted with all the latest gadgets and gizmos for running down crooks. For example, an automatic licence plate registration system tracks and transmits plate information in real time to central command. Specially mounted cameras offer live feeds from the car’s vantage points to any police office. The compartment that serves as a trunk in the front is used to carry a first-response medical kit and a refrigerated box for organ transplants that need a high-speed method of delivery. You could just use a Life Flight helicopter but why bother when you’ve got a Lamborghini LP 560-4.
In any case, who knows if a Ferrari 458 Italia will ever come to light as a Polizia edition, but it’s always nice to dream. S0ulcreat1ve has made an impressive pass at this concept and we’ll look forward to more from his creative mind. For the time being, check out his video montage below as well as the real life photos of the Lamborghini currently in use.
