Lamborghini Bobbies

If I got to drive one of these on duty, I'd join the London Met Police in a sec! Unhappy with their Renault F1 highway patrol car, the bobbies upgraded their motor pool to these speedy numbers.

Nah, don't they wish.

While the Italian police received a souped-up Gallardo pursuit vehicle from Lamborghini, this English model is just for show -- the exhibition at the MPH '06 car show in Birmingham to be exact. Most of the Lambo's grey paint job was left in tact, with yellow and blue checkers pasted down the sides and lights on the roof. But it probably wouldn't work as a police car anywhoo -- while driving the 8 miles to the car exhibit, it was pulled over twice by other curious cops.

If you can't make it to Birmingham, check out the mph show. More photos at Piston Heads.
