The Italian police force has been gifted a Urus Performante by Lamborghini. This vehicle will be added to the highway police team alongside the Huracan LP610-4 in 2024, and it will be utilized for specific services, such as the urgent transportation of organs and plasma for medical purposes.
Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, expressed, “Continuing our long-standing twenty-year collaboration with the Italian State Police is an immense pleasure. Knowing that our vehicles are used for public duties and, most importantly, for crucial operations to save human lives, fills me and the entire company with pride. These initiatives, which bring us immense satisfaction, highlight our deep connection with Italy.”
The Urus Performante has been adorned with the traditional blue and white livery of the Italian State Police, featuring tricolor bands on the sills and seat belts. Police logos have been affixed to the doors in reflective film, and it is equipped with a light bar featuring 360° blue LED lights on the roof, as well as a two-tone electric siren.
The interior has been tailored with various features essential for public security services, including an armored weapon box, a retractable message display, and a specialized compartment in the trunk for storing service equipment and a defibrillator for first aid response. Additionally, it is fitted with a portable fridge for organ transportation, complete with a display and data logger for continuous monitoring of the internal temperature.
The Urus is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that generates 657 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque. It is capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in just 3.3 seconds and has a top speed of 190 mph.
