These are the world’s best police cars
Dodge has called in the Charger for proper police duties. But is it the world's finest cop car?

It's happened. No sooner have we driven it, than Lamborghini has done the honourable - and dastardly - thing of donating one example of its brand new Lamborghini Huracan to the Italian State Police.
That's right, the Italian rozzers now have a 610bhp supercar in its ranks. God help us all.
Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann donated the new Huracan to the head of the Italian State Police, Prefect Alessandro Pansa, at a ceremony in Rome. It will of course, replace the Gallardos used by the Italian police since 2004 and 2008.
Ah yes, the Gallardo. Don't forget, the new Lamborghini Huracan is the Gallardo's successor, and has a great burden on its pointy shoulders - the Gallardo is the company's best-selling model in history.
As such, the new Huracan - and indeed, this one decked out in the cool blue of the Italian Polizia - gets a 5.2-litre V10 tuned to 610 horses, in order to go from 0-62mph in 3.2 seconds, 0-124mph in 9.9 seconds and reach a top speed of over 200mph.
Which should prove some warning for any budding crimesmiths in Italy. This Lambo will begin service at the end of the year "in order to sustain security on Italian roads by continuing accident and crime prevention". That's sub-zero levels of cool, you'll agree.
