LAPD Lamborghini: Exotic Italian Lamborghini supercar donated to LAPD

An LAPD Lamborghini “squad car” has joined the Los Angeles police fleet up of cruisers, giving new meaning to the audacious axiom: "You can run but you can’t hide."

According to MSN Autos on March 20, the Los Angeles Police Department “recently took delivery of a stunning Lamborghini Gallardo with a classic LAPD black-and-white wrap,” which was donated to them on a temporary basis by Nathalie and Travis Marg of the telecommunications contractor Light Source 1, Inc.

The sleek 2014 Lamborghini Gallardo – with its nearly $200,000 price tag – is the latest edition to the LAPD's line up of vehicles. The sports car’s “To Protect and to Serve” motto is emblazoned on the side, but you’ll have to take my word for it if the Gallardo goes flying by at its top speed of 199 mph.

Actually, we won’t be seeing this beauty of a car chasing speeders and your typical assemblage of LA bad guys – this Lamborghini is for show and tell only. One can hear the taxpayer outcry if the force actually dropped a few hundred grand on this glam car.

According to LAPD’s Sally Madera, the department will use the Lamborghini for “charity events and recruitment” purposes. Eye candy only.

On behalf of the left-lane lead foots flying down LA’s Route 101, I say “phew.”
