Italian police will soon fly on the country's highways in a brand new Lamborghini car, CNBC writes.

The Huracán LP 610-4 Polizia, whose private equivalent would cost about $ 300,000, will begin service by the end of the year and will "help ensure security on Italian roads."

The car has its own police uniform in the form of light blue paint with white stripes and the inscription Polizia.

The car's roof siren is "aerodynamically optimized" for use at high speeds. The car has a 5.2-liter, V10 twin engine with a maximum power of 610 horsepower and develops a speed of over 320 km / h.

One of the extras that the car is equipped with is a video system that can record the speed at which the pursued car is moving and send a photo of it to the police station.

The car also has traditional police extras such as weapon holsters and a radio.

The sports car was presented to police by Lamborghini President and CEO Stefan Winkelmann at a ceremony in Rome last week.

Police in Italy have long used sports cars from the Volkswagen brand Lamborghini.

"For the past 10 years, Italian police have used cars to prevent and improve road safety," a police statement said.

The Huracán LP 610-4 Polizia will replace the Lamborghini Gallardo, which was donated to the police in 2008.

In the five years since 2009, the Gallardo has traveled 110,000 km patrolling central and eastern Italy and escorting emergency medical transport.
