The Los Angeles Police Department unveiled its latest, fastest and least reliable pursuit vehicle to the masses this week via the photo sharing website Instagram, a Lamborghini Gallardo. Granted, the Gallardo will only be used for promotional purposes as it is on loan. Don’t expect it to by flying down the 101 Freeway.

The owners of the Lamborghini Gallardo, Nathalie and Travis Marg of Light Source 1 inc., donated their Gallardo to appear at charitable events for the LAPD Air Support Team, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The Gallardo is decked out in traditional LAPD-scheme—black and white color combination.  “To Protect and to Serve” is written on its sides for an added level of intimidation.

“You can run, but you can’t hide. Makes you wanna join #LAPD, doesn’t it?” LAPD’s Rampart Division said in an Instagram post.

A 2014 Lamborghini Gallardo has a starting price of about $182,000—chump change, really. According to the Los Angeles Police Department, no tax dollars were spent on the vehicle.

The Gallardo is expected to make its first appearance at the Los Angeles County Air Show at Fox Field in Lancaster on March 21-22.
