The best gifts this holiday season weren’t delivered in any ordinary sleigh.
Italian police used their souped-up luxury Lamborghini Huracán to deliver two kidneys to recipients in need, the department shared Tuesday.
“Traveling on the highway to deliver the most beautiful Christmas present: life,” the Polizia di Stato wrote on Facebook. “Thanks to the State Police special Santa Claus, two people were gifted a kidney … Have a good life!”
Police rushed the kidneys from Padua roughly 105 miles to Modena and then another 250 miles to Rome, the Guardian reported.
The department shared photos of its officers delivering the organs from the sleek white and blue sports car into the hands of hospital workers.
Lamborghini gifted the department two of the specialty cars — which can rev from 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds and to a maximum speed of over 200 mph — specifically for the urgent transport of organs.
The department’s Lambo is outfitted with a refrigerated medical compartment to preserve the delicate cargo.
Officers have used the Huracán in a series of life-saving deliveries.
In November 2020, police clocked an average speed of 145 miles per hour to transport a kidney more than 300 miles in just two hours, the Drive said.
