LOS ANGELES —

The Los Angeles Police Department is getting a Lamborghini.

But don't expect to see the exotic Italian sports car -- decked out with police decals and painted black and white -- pursuing fugitive drivers down the city's freeways.

Officer Sally Madera says that the car is privately owned and will be loaned to police for "charity events and recruitment."

KNBC-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1g03nB9) that Nathalie and Travis Marg of a Los Angeles-based telecommunications company called Light Source 1, Inc., donated the use of their car to support the department's air support team.

According to Lamborghini's website, the 2014 model of the car has a top speed of 199 mph.
