Italian police have crashed their most valuable patrol car, a $235,000 Lamborghini.
The front end of the Lamborghini was crushed in the accident, near Cremona, and the driver and a passenger were injured, although not seriously.
The Lamborghini car, painted in the Italian police force’s blue and white colours, was one of a pair donated by the Italian manufacturer to the police in 2004.
Both cars include transmitters to send images back to HQ, a defibrillator for accidents and a fridge for transporting donor organs.
The six-speed luxury vehicle with a 500-horsepower engine is designed to go from zero to 100km/h (60mph) in four seconds.
The two officers were returning from a convention in Cremona, where they had addressed a student audience on road safety.
