This vehicle and its usage are a donation from Travis and Nathalie Marg, the owners of Light Source 1, which is a fiber optics company. The Gallardo will see use as a charity vehicle alongside the LAPD Air Support Team. Not a bad choice of wheels, since it's one of a few vehicles that can keep up with the choppers circling in the sky.
Looking rather evil with its police livery, the Gallardo serves as a rather excellent piece of charity show eye candy. No, it won't be prowling the streets looking to put a quick end to high speed pursuits.
Instead, the vehicle will be used to put smiles on a few faces, and not much more. It's a donation, so folks getting angry over a perceived big ticket item on the local budget should guess again. We imagine the LAPD is only spilling out a few bucks for gas with regards to this ride. It's not Dubai, after all.
Still, we welcome the chance to try and run from it if the LAPD is up to the challenge. We'll meet you at the defunct El Toro Marine base and run head to head. We play the baddies to your good guy crew. Check out more of the Lamborghini on the LAPD Lambo Instagram page.
