    It was DONATED to them by Lamborghini. Would you turn down such a donation?

    No, I would not have turned it down, but I would not have turned it into a police car. If the Italian police department was smart, they would have sold the Lambo, and used the money to buy the department items that are needed.

    Who's going to pay for the maintenance WHEN that thing breaks down? What are insurance costs on that thing.

    That's the reason I said DUMB.

    If Lambo GAVE me a new car, I would sell it. I could not afford the insurance and taxes on it.

    Well, Italy's a corrupt place. What did Lamborghini get out of the donation? And as for the cops being smart with money -- our own aren't smart with it, so how can you expect a corrupt socialist country with an economy so mired in debt the EU has had to bail it out numerous times to be smart with it?
