    ROME (Reuters) - If you are thinking about speeding on Italian highways this year, think twice. You might find yourself being chased by a Lamborghini.

    Italian police took possession Friday of a sleek, 500 horsepower, two-seater Lamborghini Gallardo, which can hit a top speed of 185 miles per hour.

    The sports car, painted in the police's distinctive blue and white colors, comes complete with a flashing blue light on the roof and will initially patrol the Salerno-Reggio Calabria motorway -- a road notorious in Italy for wild driving.

    The Lamborghini will also be used to transport human organs for emergency operations.

    As if cops needed another reason to be completely full of themselves.

    Damn, that's one pimp 'gini.

    In some towns a car like this would be irrelevant because the cops have standing orders not to engage in high speed chases.
    No wonder people run from the police.

    I think the new paint job sucks immensely.

    I agree. But damn that car'd look nice with any paintjob.

    My favorite is still the Ferrari Dino, named after his son who died in an auto accident.
