The life-saving and land-control Lamborghini Urus is on the roads
Vita gazette – New Year’s gift to the police: Lamborghini Urus Performante. Lamborghini Urus will be used mainly for health emergencies, such as the rapid transport of organs from one city to another. In this way, the Police will be able to exploit the speed and reliability of the Lamborghini SUV to save human lives. Still, it will also be used for prevention and control activities in the area.
The collaboration between Automobili Lamborghini and the Italian State Police continues. The State Police received a new car, which was donated by the Emilian manufacturer to the Police and is equipped with all the necessary equipment for patrolling, rescue and organ transport operations.
The Sant’Agata Bolognese company has delivered an Urus Performante to Stradale, which will enter service in 2024. The delivery ceremony, which took place today in Rome, in Piazza del Viminale, was attended by the Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, the Minister of Interior Matteo Piantedosi, the General Director of Public Security Vittorio Pisani and Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.
Blue State Police
Urus Performante was set up by Lamborghini technicians in Sant’Agata Bolognese, starting from the exterior, following Police specifications. Urus, the SUV from the House of the Bull, boasts a power of over 660 HP and a top speed of 306 km/h. The Lamborghini Style Center designed the livery and combined the classic “State Police Blue” with white with the tricolour bands on the sills and beltline. Police logos were applied in reflective film on the doors, while a light bar with 360° blue LED lights, combined with a two-tone electric siren, was installed on the roof.
Patrolling, rescue and organ transport operations
The Lamborghini Urus donated by the Emilian manufacturer to the Police is equipped with all the necessary equipment for patrolling, rescue and organ transport operations. Among these, the defibrillator, the cooling system for organ preservation, the rear camera, the tablet connected to the onboard system and the state livery stand out: light blue with white stripes and the tricolour highlighted.
For the public safety service
The passenger compartment has been customised with various elements indispensable for the public safety service. These include an armoured weapon drawer, a fold-down graphic message panel, a special compartment housed in the trunk for stowing ordnance equipment and a defibrillator for first aid interventions. Above all, a portable fridge for transporting organs, including a display and data logger for constant internal temperature monitoring. Urus is equipped with a twin-turbo V8 engine with 666 HP of maximum power and 850 Nm of torque at speeds from 2,300 to 4,500 rpm min, which guarantees acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.3 seconds and a maximum speed of 306 km/h.
Its versatility and ability to adapt
The model is the latest car from the Sant’Agata Bolognese company to enter the fleet of the Italian State Police after the two Huracans donated in 2017 and 2019. Compared to the two sedans that preceded it, the Lamborghini Urus stands out for its versatility and ability to adapt to different terrains, thanks to all-wheel drive and selectable driving modes.
The car will enter service in 2024 and symbolises the twenty-year collaboration between the Sant’Agata Bolognese company and the Ministry of the Interior. The Casa del Toro donated the first supercar to the Police in 2004; in that case, it was the first generation of the Gallardo. Since then, Lamborghinis have proven valid allies for safety and solidarity. In 20 years, the Lamborghinis supplied to the Police have carried out 242 organ transports and over 382 operational services on roads and motorways.
