“It is with great pleasure that we are continuing our twenty-year co-operation with the Italian State Police,”commented Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.“Knowing that our cars are used for public duties and, above all, for crucial operations to save human lives, can only make me and the whole company proud. These initiatives, which bring us great satisfaction, demonstrate our innate close ties with Italy.”

The Urus Performante features the classic blue and white livery of the Italian State Police with tricolor bands on the sills and seat belts. The police logos have been applied to the doors in reflective film, while a light bar with 360° blue LED lights has been installed on the roof, together with a two-tone electric siren.

The cockpit has been customized with various elements that are indispensable for the public security service, including an armoured weapon box; a flip-down message display; and a special compartment in the trunk for stowing service equipment and a defibrillator for first aid response. Most importantly, a portable fridge for the transportation of organs is fitted, including a display and data logger for the continuous monitoring of the internal temperature.
