The LAPD Now Has a Lamborghini Cop Car, Because Charity
Los Angeles is a town of dreams, of wonder, of authenticity, heart, and soul. Oh wait. No. It is none of those things. Which is why instead of getting a Morgan Three Wheeler like my constant letters have suggested, they went out and got a Lamborghini Gallardo. Figures. Just like Dubai.
In all fairness, the LAPD Lamborghini isn't actually part of the force to show off, or just to keep up with the Emirati Joneses with their ridiculous Bugatti Veyron cop car, but was rather donated to them by a rather generous couple. Nathale and Travis Marg, who have a fiber optics company called Light Source 1, donated the use of their baby Lambo with its V10 sitting squarely in the middle, to the LAPD.
Instead of being used for high-speed chases and organ transport, like the Italian police Gallardo, it'll only be used for charity events to support the LAPD Air Support team.

Italian Police Total Lamborghini Cop Car
Gotta keep up with Bieber?
Los Angeles. That’s in Mexico, right?
They will crash it within 6 months.
LA is the Biebe this town is one huge freak show 24/7.
Italian cops sure set the style. We walked past a parade ground in Rome. They had those three musketeer hats with the feathers bent way back over the back of the hats.
Drug money at work for the citizens.
I have an idea for a screenplay...
Hablamos ambos leguajes aqui.
I smell a Paul Walker moment in the future.
You beat me to it, how long before they wreck with the Bieb?
It will be BOOSTED by some Gang of Illegals.
Another thought... Do you want to be the officer behind the wheel in a chase when the times comes to ram the perp and spin him/her out? In the lambo? That might be a "career limiting move" as we say...
lapd - how to make a lambourghini look ugly.
I barely speak english, my birth choice.
I live in soCal and took French and latin, for some inexplicable reason.
Oceanside Cal, republic of Northern Baja.
What could possibly go wrong...?
And they fund office parties by holding drawings at $50/ticket for who gets to drive it each day.
You will not be able to out run that cruiser! I still think that all people who try to out run the cops —whould be shot with a panzerfaust! One of these should be in every cop car—a fireball explosion to end all runs—look great on TV too.
Just think they could use them on dogs too!!!
I would have thought it was courtesy of a drug seizure.
You will not be able to out run that cruiser!
Outrun? I absolutely could outrun that thing... I have driven autocrosses on police qualification courses where EVERY autox-er beat the official course record. To outrun that POS all you would have to do is turn down a road with a speed bump.. they’ll high-center it.
Even if you couldn’t find a speed bump I doubt most people could drive that, especially in traffic, without wrecking.
The police do not own the car.
The couple LOANED the car to the police.
That means the couple DESIGNATE it’s use.
It is for SHOW ONLY.
Odd way to encourage the public to follow the speed limits, by driving around a car that goes 200 mph (or close).
Seems it would have the opposite effect.
Giving a cop a Lamborghini isn’t any different than giving a 16 year old kid a Lamborghini.
It will be wrecked within days.
Absolutely ,, there is a huge difference between “race track speed” and “real life speed” ,,, the driver of the lambo has very poor visibility forward , he’s too low and that car is amazingly W-I-D-E ... real roads have other cars and real hazards.. I’d choose a hot hatch ,, a GTI or Fiat 500 Arbarth ... lets see him follow an Abarth through a narrow twisty section.
What was it P.J. O’Rourke said? “Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.”
Los Angeles. Thats in Mexico, right?
If that Lambo makes it to Mexico it’s never coming back ,, most of the Mexican police cars are stolen from the USA. The used car lots here which advertised to Mexicans had no problem selling them a “buy here pay here” newer car for 20% down knowing that it was going over the border ,, never to return ... I don’t know who insures their inventory but they are STUPID with a capital STUP.
