The year 2020 has been like a bad dream. But the tiny speckles of positive news in the sea of negativity is what gives us hope and strength to keep fighting. Yesterday, we brought you the news from Germany of a Lamborghini Aventador S that was crashed by a social media influencer, resulting in the loss of a precious life. In stark contrast, today, we have a story of a Lamborghini that played a crucial role in saving a life. A specially-equipped Lamborghini Huracan from the Italian state police department’s fleet was used to transport a kidney from northern Italy to Rome. For this lifesaving mission, the kidney had to be transported from Padua, a city in Northern Italy’s Veneto region, to Gemelli hospital in Rome, covering a distance of 305 miles. The journey between the two cities usually takes almost five hours in a car. However, the Italian police’s Huracan managed to cover the distance in a record time of just over three hours, safely delivering the kidney to the doctors already on standby.
According to a report on online publication Wanted in Rome, the Huracan reached speeds up to 230km/h (about 143mph) on public roads with sirens blaring and lights flashing all the way to Rome. The 200mph Lamborghini Huracan was added to the Italian police department’s fleet in 2017 for special assignments such as the urgent transport of blood and organs. For this purpose, the front trunk of the supercar has been modified with a refrigerator for safely transporting organs and a defibrillator for emergency rescue. It is also decked out in the Italian police department’s blue and white color scheme. The supercar is powered by a naturally-aspirated V10 engine capable of 610 horsepower, which gives it a 0-62 time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 201mph.
