Italian State Police used a special Lamborghini to expedite the delivery of two kidneys for transplant patients hundreds of miles apart.
The Polizia di Stato on Tuesday shared images of a Lamborghini Huracán loaded with the organs. The luxury sports car featured a unique compartment for the medical cool box that contained the organs.
“Being on the highway to deliver the most beautiful Christmas present: life,” wrote the Polizia di Stato on Facebook, according to an English translation. “Thanks to the state police special Santa Claus, two people were given a kidney.”
According to The Guardian, police took the organs from Padua, in north-eastern Italy, to hospitals in Modena and then to Rome. The distance from Padua to Modena is approximately 105 miles, and Modena to Rome is another 250 mile journey.
