The Italian highway cops have their Lambo, but the hard-asses at Arma dei Carabinieri are getting two Lotus Evora S cruisers. The specially-equipped cars have voice recognition tech and a refrigerated compartment for blood-and-organs transport, or keeping their Limoncello cold.

Apparently, all this time we've been ignoring the rest of Colin Chapman's famous quote: Simplify, add lightness, then bust perps.

I never quite understood the difference between the Italian Policia and the Carabinieri, but I 've always loved the Carabinieri's style. When visiting Italy for the first time I was just at awe that cops can look this cool but still frighteningly serious. German cops still looked liked like semi-military assholes in their beige and green clothes back then. (Not their fault though. They just had no choice.)

I will try to add a picture, but just in case nibbles feels hungry today, I'll also add the link.

If you look closely, you will notice that the stripes on their pants match the racing stripes on the car. How awesome is that?

P.S. As a newbie, if the picture doesn't show up, could anyone of you tell me how to properly link a picture from a google search. Do I have to download it onto my harddrive first before it can be...

P.P.S The picture worked. My first time! So happy!
