WIP: Gallardo LP 560-4 "Polizia Stradale" with working lights
I was up to post this for a long time, but it's still a work in progress: my own attempt on the Italian Police Gallardo... with working lights!
About this creation
After finishing my lighted Murciélago SV (and with all the buzz it generated on you in mind... thanks again!), I soon decided to work on another lighted model. I still had some old 9V Light&Sound elements around and when I found the PF-9V adapter wire in a nearby LEGO® store, time had come to combine them and make a policecar. Certainly the famous Gallardo which the Italian Highway Police, - the "Polizia Stradale" – received from Lamborghini as a present was the first choice. I already had most of the blue parts in stock.






Then I saw the first preliminary pics of TLC's set ... I had to hurry to get mine done.So this one is NOT based on the official set 8214 - I still don't even own it!


However, one of the old light bricks had broken down and I ordered two (you never know what future brings) via BL. The new bricks were soon delivered and finally I had three of those beautiful flashing light bricks, two for the roof and one for spare. Wait, the real car has also flashing blue lights in the rear grill, just behind the B-pillars and in the front bumper intakes. How cool is that? OK, decisions made - NO spare! I opted for the front lights, in my opinion the most dramatic and easiest possibility. But believe me, it was a finicky job to get a good result ... All this "designing-during-building" delayed the project more and more. At least I made up my mind and post it as a WIP - maybe I'll never finish it , who knows.



The real car

In december, 2004, Lamborghini donated two Gallardos to the "Polizia Stradale" in honor of their 152nd anniversary. Today, those "old" Gallardos are already in museums, as Lamborghini surprised the forces with the brand-new and even more powerful LP 560-4 variant last year. Unfortunately, on november 30, 2009, one car crashed into a row of parked cars near Cremona in northern Italy where it was displayed on a job fair. No one was seriously injured - but the car was totaled beyond repair.




For more info on the real car, check out this page.



The model

I "borrowed" the side intakes from TLC's design, the rest is mostly my own design... I hope so! With all those Gallardos around here, on flickr, Brickshelf etc. it is easily possible that someone already had the one or the other idea. If so, please let me know and I will mention you with all kudos you deserve... nevertheless I think that the front skirt design is unique ;-D

Just take a look around...














As usual, you can open the bonnet, front hatch and doors...




...and you will find NO detailed engine, NO no trunk with lining and also NO seats, steering wheel or dashboard.

It's not a Tesla, but even so you will find a big battery pack instead of an engine ;-)



Front hatch showing the siren and front bumper lights.



The interior is still missing because the last 9V wire I had at hand was about 4 feet long. Hence the cable spaghetti at the driver's place...



There's the master switch...



IR receiver activated...



To sum up the electric bits and pieces:

  • 1x PF IR remote control

  • 1x PF IR-receiver

  • 1x PF battery box

  • 2 pairs of PF LEDs

  • PF - 9V adapter wire

  • 1x old 9V "Space" siren

  • 3x old 1X4 light brick

  • several plates with electric contacts

  • and finally LOTS of wiring...





Lights on

Front



Rear



Emergency lights / siren are independently switchable




The video

...is rather basic but shows the whole thing in action... so watch it!

I hope you like this new "electric car". Please take some minutes to write down your pros and cons, as it will help me and others to improve skills. Thanks!

Wow, very nice Police car. The best Police car of the world ;) Love this Lamborghini. And your creation is absolute great in every detail. Superb idea with the working lights. The siren is from the old "Light and Sound" sets, right? Have two of these sirens. It's fun to play with it ;)

This is a great car! I think next you should try making the police Reventon from NFS Hot Pursuit, even though it's not a real car. I still want to be impressed by a Zonda or really anything RC!

Thanks for the comment on the four door Ferrari. I'm sorry about the fact, that the video is blocked in Germany. A lot of people in Germany would've liked it. The working lights are so I-M-prèzz-iv! The nose with working police lights are like a shark attacking it's meal, it looks like something in that way... The next thing I'll build is a fully PF loaded off-roader. Because the weather is snowy and cold, I'll try hard to complete it in a short couple of days, to be sure that the snow is not molten away. Then I'll try to make impressive images and even a movie. I think that the Ferrari movie is blocked because I added the "scorpions" soundtrack. On youtube I also added some explanation, that the video is - in short - not for commercial purpose, but for my designer portfolio.

Quoting steve emmenegger Very nice car. Could you please explain how you were able to link the PF IR receiver with the old 9V space police siren and blinking lights ? I don't need a whole booklet ;-) Thanks in advance.
Thanks, Steve. You will need an extension wire (BL#: 60656), which doesn't come with a set. You can order it directly at TLC, via BL or get it at a LEGO store (as I did in Hamburg, Germany). Here's the link to LEGO: -> http://powerfunctions.lego.com/en-US/products/8886.aspx The adapter comes with the 9V contacts on the underside of the ends, hence the "electric plates" to connect them to further 9V elements. Hope that helped? Ciao, Jens

Wow! I love the lights, I watched the video, and the effect from the flashing lights is great. Also, great work with the front grille lights. It definitely appears to have been inspired by the official set, but upon closer examination, I can tell that everything is much tighter and smoother. Everything is well designed so far, I'd love to see it finished!
