LAPD Receives A Lamborghini Gallardo For Promotional Purposes : News

The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) just got a new flashy squad car in the form of a Lamborghini Gallardo.

The high-end 2014 model sports car, with a price tag of $182,000 and a top speed of almost 199 miles per hour, is the newest addition to the police department's fleet of vehicles, the Daily Mail reported.

As part of the police force, the Lambo features the traditional black and white law enforcement colors, the LAPD logo, emergency police lights and the phrase "To Protect and To Serve" written on the side. The paint job of the Lamborghini cop car was done by Galpin Auto Sports, the automobile dealership and repair shop which was featured as the main garage in the fifth season of the USA version of MTV's "Pimp My Ride".

But don't expect to see this decked-out police car speeding through highways in car chases like in video games. The Gallardo will only be used as a promotional material by the LAPD.

The vehicle is privately owned by Travis and Nathalie Marg of the major telecommunications contractor, Light Source 1. The two generously donated the sports car to the police department to be used by the LAPD Air Support Team during charity events and recruitment, according to NBC Los Angeles.

In other words, the car will be displayed to boost the reputation of the LAPD to invite people to support the department and encourage others to sign-up and join the force.

As part of its promotional purpose, the LAPD launched a website as well as a Twitter and Instagram account for the Lamborghini. It uses the hashtag #LAPDLambo on social media.

The Lamborghini Gallardo police car will make its official debut at California's premier air show, the Los Angeles County Air show which will be held at the Fox Field in Lancaster from March 21 to 22. The highlight of the event will be the Blue Angels of the U.S. Navy.
