Police Lamborghini crashed

Italian Police have crashed their Lamborghini Gallardo supercar

The Italian Police have crashed their Lamborghini Gallardo. We reported last year of how they’d acquired a brand spanking new LP560-4 supercar to go about their high-speed business, alongside an existing 5-litre Gallardo, but it now appears that speed got a little too high. Newspaper reports have unearthed an official Police statement claiming the car had swerved to avoid another driver coming out of a petrol station. That does little to explain the addition of a Mercedes A-class to the Lambo’s usually svelte lines, though… Both officers in the Gallardo suffered injuries, and are on the mend now. Whether the car is recovering too has been kept quiet – the damage certainly looks severe to us.
