Lamborghini Police Car in London: The World’s Coolest Cop Car

Lamborghini Police Car in London: The World’s Coolest Cop Car

There is a police car traveling in London: It is the car of the year!

A few years ago I remember seeing one of those “Police Slow” signs at the side of the road, upon which some wag had scrawled: “They are, aren’t they?”


Well, if that gentleman or any other miscreant think they can outrun the long arm of the law, let me tell you, its reach has just got a lot longer thanks to a 640bhp Lamborghini Murcielago LP640.

No more BMW 535d patrol cars for our boys in blue. Instead they will have a bellowing Italian 6.5-litre V12 and four-wheel-drive at their disposal, good for 211mph and 0-62mph in 3.4 seconds.


That should have the joy riders giving up and coming quietly before they’ve even managed to hot wire the ignition. The world’s coolest cop car is going to be on display at the Metropolitan Police stand at the MPH ’06 show at London’s Earl’s Court Exhibition Centre which starts today and runs until November 5.

Good to see our tax money is helping out those that really need it………..

Couldn’t put it any better ^^

So now they’ve bought their little toy, are we going to see a reduction in car chases? Reduction in speed cameras? Or an increase in the latter for running costs?

Stupid muppets…

@Max: It is most likely from a drug bust or an event where they seized property. I dont think that they paid for it.

and I am sure it will catch a great many “miscreants” while it is up on blocks at Earls Court Exhibition Centre too.

There is only onee of these cars not a fleet, and it wasnt bought with tax payers money it was donated by the Lamborghini company to the police, the article is misleading in that regard

meh, posted this comment on Jul 30th, 2007

Wow, this car would be great for giving chase on bumpy roads!

F’ing stupid to say the least.

Danny, posted this comment on Jul 30th, 2007

Even if it was seized, the annual cost of routine maintenance on that particular vehicle is greater than the cost of finanicing the old BMW 535 cars the police normally drive in London!

Even if this extravagant car was donated, the cost burden is still with the tax payers to maintain the car, is it not?

Well dont there Fella’s.

Mike, posted this comment on Jul 30th, 2007

the car was donated to them by Lambourghini

TC, posted this comment on Jul 30th, 2007

FYI, the car was actually donated by Lamborghini, not paid for by the police and/or taxpayers.

This somehow makes me think of a sequel to Hot Fuzz.

SRK, posted this comment on Jul 30th, 2007

@meh : very true. Give the trend in London currently for building speed ramps like olympic hurdles, it shouldn’t be too hard to get away…

Barry El-Sharawy, posted this comment on Jul 30th, 2007

If this is current news, why does the story refer to a police show in 2006?

Also, this was plastered all over the lad’s mags last year. How odd.

I love WoW.

Ed, posted this comment on Jul 30th, 2007

The miscreants will start hijacking the police vehicles now.

pipi, posted this comment on Jul 30th, 2007

this was a gift from the Lamborghini factory. they gave the car for the first time 2 years ago to the italina police, now they are shareing it with other EU police forces

ph, posted this comment on Jul 30th, 2007

I will do what it takes to get a ride in that vehicle. Do you have any great ideas what to do?

Anonymous, posted this comment on Jul 30th, 2007

How many of you need to tell us that it was donated? There’s like 25% of the comments saying that. WE KNOW. Anyways… they could’ve at least painted it a little better. Blue and yellow checkers? Ugh.

Fools, posted this comment on Jul 30th, 2007

This car has not and will not ever be an operational Police vehicle it was a promotonal stunt nothing more nothing less, The Met Police have a hard enough time keeping thier fleet of TDi Astras on the road to answer your calls without this to contend with too!

Does it talk though?

Gari, posted this comment on Jul 30th, 2007

This is kind of stupid because when the cop needs to fishtail a suspect.. who would want to do it in a 500,000$ car.

Yahooo, posted this comment on Jul 30th, 2007

LOL our police still chasing in Skoda Felicia XD

trigger, posted this comment on Jul 30th, 2007

Fantasy:

MET Police Lamborghini chases down drug dealer at 200mph.

Reality:

MET Police Lamborghini is stuck in traffic on the M25 as drug dealer makes it off on foot.

JJ, posted this comment on Jul 30th, 2007

cause ou really need a car that goes 210 mph when your def. gonna be chasing someone with a car that will probably have trouble getting too 100 mph..wahoo!!!

Chris at Upgrade, posted this comment on Jul 30th, 2007

With all the speed bumps in london, the criminals would loose the lambo within seconds

William, posted this comment on Jul 30th, 2007

Why would they need that. IF the chase ever got the point where the lambo was the only car still in pursuit would they honestly wreck that car to take out the perp?

Donivon, posted this comment on Jul 30th, 2007

It will most probably be used for transporting emergency medical supplies (hearts for transplant etc) Thats what the Italians are using theirs for…

Chris, posted this comment on Jul 30th, 2007

Actually im pretty sure i’ve read before that the car was not bought, but was donated to the department as a gift.

Anonymous, posted this comment on Jul 30th, 2007

I don’t know if the Brits perform the PIT Maneuver, but I certainly hope they avoid it here.

If you like Lamborghinis and hot women this might be for you:

This story is old (2006) and the car was only a promotional stunt.

Advised Wang, posted this comment on Jul 30th, 2007

Anyone notice it only has two seats? Apparently crooks get to ride shotgun.

martin, posted this comment on Jul 30th, 2007

The car is Lamborghini’s press car the numberplate YEVIL is owned by Lamborghini London and is used for their display cars and for publicity events.

Miguel, posted this comment on Jul 31st, 2007

If they didn’t actually buy it, they could have confiscated it from a drug bust.. Police often take the cars and use them for themselves. There is a Corvette in my town taken from drug dealers.

R.Chauhan, posted this comment on Aug 3rd, 2007

Actually, that car is a pile of dung. I once rubbed my nipples all over the windscreen and the officers fined me, and you know what? The fine said that I had to actually have sex with the two of them. I did so and got paid too.
