As the motoring enthusiast you probably are, you’re bound to have seen the legendary Gallardo patrol car.  Well, I happened to come across some shocking images of its demise; so I thought I’d blog about it.  This happened quite a while ago, so it doesn’t qualify as news, but it is something worth revisiting.

The Gallardo LP560-4 was a gift from Lamborghini to the Italian State Police, fully kitted out with all that you may need as a police officer including guns, radar, video-broadcasting and GPS.  The official story is that the officer driving the supercar at the time of the unfortunate mishap, swerved to avoid a collision with a car moving in the opposite direction, forcing him to plough into a row of stationary cars.

The officers inside weren’t too badly injured, apart from a scratch and a broken rib here and there, but the Gallardo was not as fortunate.  Although it could be salvaged and repaired it would never be able to return to its former, criminal-menacing glory.
