Say hello to Italy's 510 hp police car.

Alfa Romeo has presented the Carabinieri with two brand new Giulia Quadrifoglio police cars.

Set to be used in Rome and Milan, the cars feature a traditional blue and white livery with red accents.  The models have also been equipped with an LED light bar, Carabinieri badging, and emergency lights.

Bigger changes occur in the interior as the cabin features a police radio, a passenger side tablet, and new switchgear to control the lights and siren.  The cars also have a defibrillator, portable cooling units, weapon storage compartments, and LED flashlight holders.

Like the standard model, the police cars are powered by a biturbo 2.9-liter V6 engine that produces 510 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque.  The engine is connected to a six-speed manual transmission which enables the car to accelerate from 0-62 miles per hour in 3.9 seconds before hitting a top speed of 190 mph.

Since the Giulia Quadrifoglio is a lot faster than most police cars, they will be driven by a handful of specially chosen policemen who have received training from Alfa Romeo instructors at the Varano de Melegari circuit.  The police officers will then be able to use the model in ceremonies as well as in "special operations" such as transporting blood and organs.
