Footage of Italian police delivering a donor kidney via a Lamborghini has solicited a huge reaction online...
The thought of driving a Lamborghini will get many car fanatics excited...But one of the manufacturer's vehicles was used for a more unconventional reason recently.
Footage has emerged of Italian police officers driving a Lamborghini to transport a kidney...Making the 300 mile trip in just 2 hours.
Now, of course...Helicopters are typically used to transport organs to the hospital as they tend to be quicker and safer for everyone.
Which raised several questions about why police chose to deliver the organ via Lamborghini.Well, some Italians have attempted to shed light on the move that's had many people scratching their heads after watching the clip.
The Lamborghini Huracan had been purchased by the police in 2017 and had been customized for tasks like this.The vehicle comes complete with a refrigerated trunk and a defibrillator that made it ideal for transporting organs.
The trip in question began in Rome and finished at the Gemelli University Hospital in Padua with an average speed of 145mph...And of course, many people were left confused over the unique method of transportation.
Well, while the police haven't spoke out about why standard practices with a helicopter were not used...Some people have attempted to shed light on the reasoning.
While of course, it's much more common to use helicopters...Some raised the valid point that not all hospitals in Italy have helicopter pads - which could be the reason why the supercar was used instead.
Or of course, it could have simply been an excuse for police to justify purchasing the Lamborghini.Either-way, we're sure the recipient of the kidney was grateful for the organ arriving safely on time.
