Italian police were left red-faced after a prized 200mph Lamborghini used for high speed chases smashed into a driver leaving a petrol station. The 520-horsepower supercar, one of only two donated to Italian traffic officers, was written off in the crash near Cremona, Italy. The Gallardo model had been travelling on routine enquiries when a careless motorist pulled out suddenly on to the road. The specially trained driver of the Lamborghini was forced to swerve to avoid the unthinking motorist ploughing into nearby parked cars.
