Italian police used a specially tuned Lamborghini supercar to deliver two kidneys to donor patients on Tuesday hundreds of kilometers apart, they announced.
“Move on the highway to deliver the most beautiful Christmas gift: life,” they said in a statement posted on social media, along with a picture of a medical cooler in a dedicated compartment at the front. Huracán.
“Thanks to the State Police’s special Santa Claus, two people received the gift of a kidney.”
Organs were transported from Padua in northeastern Italy to hospitals in Modena and then Rome.
The Lamborghini Huracan, which has a top speed of 300kmh (190mph) and the ability to accelerate from 0-100kmh in 3.2 seconds, is the luxury carmaker’s 2017 gift to the police.
It was assigned to highway patrols in Bologna, northern Italy, for use in both normal police operations and emergency transport of blood and organs.
Another Huracan is operated by the highway patrol in Rome, while a 2009 Lamborghini Gallardo used by the police is now in a museum.
