Alfa built police cars to speedily transport organs and blood.
Just because a car needs to go fast doesn’t mean it cannot also travel in style. Alfa Romeo presented two special editions of its new Giulia Quadrifoglio high-performance sports sedan to the Italian national military police, the Carabinieri, on Monday morning, Mashable reported.
Alfa created the cars to serve as special operations vehicles. Particularly, the cars will be utilized when the police need to do something fast, like transporting organs and blood.
On the somewhat less exciting side, but nevertheless noteworthy, the cars will be employed for escort services at institutional ceremonies.
There is a good reason why Alfa chose these cars for such special duty. Not only are they the newest and ultimate invention from the storied Italian automaker, they are also powered by a 510-horsepower 2.9-liter V6 engine.
At full throttle, the Giulia will do 0 to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds undoubtedly fast enough to get some blood across town. Heck, it might even be enough to curdle it. You might even declare, Italians have speed in their blood and their blood in this speedy Alfa.
In utter contrast to American police vehicles, these Giulias have not been de-contented. Alternatively, they retain the special leather interior with red accent stitching. Alfa also fitted the cars with a defibrillator, special portable cooling units, radio, Odin system, emergency devices and rechargeable LED flashlights.
What’s more, Alfa has bolted up a tablet in front of the passenger. It’s not specified why in the announcement.
This is to aid in police duties. Since it’s the Italians, though, I have a feeling it’s instead for entertainment.
I know these cars were built for the Italians, but I can’t help but think the English need a couple of their own. I mean, they could rightfully call them “bloody fast” (sorry not sorry).
