A Rare look inside the Lamborghini Gallardo, Italian Squad Car Version.
The Lamborghini Gallardo, (Pronounced Ga-yard-oh) is the Italian supercar maker Lamborghini's "entry-level" supercar (owned by German Audi), sitting beneath the Murciélago. It is also the first car to feature the new Lamborghini V10 engine - only the third engine made by the firm. 5,000 Gallardos were built in just three years, making it the company's most-produced model to date.

The Police Car Edition.
In December 2004, several Gallardos were donated by Lamborghini to the Italian police in honor of the force's 152nd anniversary. The Gallardo Police Cars are used by the traffic police (Polizia Stradale) during emergencies and alarm situations on the Salerno-Reggio Calabria highway, also under the powers of the special safety operative which is already being employed along that tract of highway and above all, for the transport of body organs destined for transplantation.
Yellow Gallardos have been "temporary" police cars for the Metropolitan Police in London, one in 2005 and one in 2006, for specific publicity events. The 2006 vehicle was seen at the start of the 2006 Gumball Rally. Both vehicles were lent by Lamborghini London and were fitted with yellow and blue Battenburg markings, police logos and a small blue lightbar.
