    The Cops Are Chasing Me in a WHAT?

    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.


    -------------

    No use running away, they will catch you anyway.

    I like the Gallardo! Its one hell of a car! heheheh...

    But is that what you really need to pursuit cars? I think not!

    (Lets say I'm one of those stupid people who runs away from the police)
    If I'm in a truck and wanted to get away and the Gallardo is chasing me, I wouldnt hesitate to put the pedal to the metal! Sure, the Gallardo is super-fast and quick... But when the Gallardo catches up... then what? The car is made of really light materials, specially the body--fiberglass! Whats the Gallardo gonna do? Run me off the road? I think not! If anything.. I think the opposite is gonna happen... I would run the Gallardo off the road... One good, quick hit, and the Gallardo would be in pieces! Remember... i have a truck!

    Anyways... the Gallardo is not going to be used in Hot pursuit anyways! Its going to be used in Organ transfers! Even then... theres helicopters and ambulances! heehehe...

    I'm not talking down ont the car... but.... ahhhh, what a total waste of donation! LOL!

    sir Driver baka naman pang habol lang parang lead siya para di lang makatakas... or i dunno, or maybe used for transfer of organs in short distances lang.. which minsan walang available na helicopter. its nice to have options dba? hehe 1 lang naman eh, its not really a waste of donation. maybe not very useful though...
