The Italian State Police delivered a donor kidney last week from Rome to Padua, a journey of more than 300 miles, in around two hours thanks to the help of the Lamborghini Huracan.
The Lamborghini Huracan they used, which was specially modified for such tasks with a refrigerated frunk, was obtained by the Italian police back in 2017.
The Huracan can do more than organ deliveries. It’s a regular patrol vehicle for the department with lights, a police computer and other equipment necessary to perform traffic stops and arrests. Luckily for other speeders, it was too busy flying down the road for officers to check their radar guns.
The kidney’s high-speed journey began in Rome, which is nestled in the center of Italy. It was then transported to Gemelli University Hospital in the northern city of Padua, a distance of 303 miles or 489 kilometers. The entire trip allegedly took just over two hours with reports that the Lamborghini averaged 145 mph between the two cities. For reference, Google Maps estimates that this journey would take at least five hours in normal conditions.
The Italian State Police actually has a few Huracans for situations like these, and they’re also outfitted with a refrigerated frunk for transporting organs or other temperature-sensitive medical supplies.
