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.
Reports say the car swerved to avoid another vehicle which crossed into its path, ploughing into two stationary cars. It was damaged beyond repair.
According to Italian daily Corriere della Sera, Veronica Lario, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s wife, is seeking 3.5 million euros per month during divorce proceedings.
Berlusconi had rebuffed her demand, and offered a more reasonable 200,000 euros a month (he is ready to go as high as 300,000).
He is also prepared to let her keep her the stunning villa Belvedere at Macherio near Milan where she lives with two of their three children Luigi, 21, and Eleonora, 22, while Barbara, 25, lives in Switzerland.
