I recently had a conversation with a friend of mine about being caught by the police while speeding. He reckons that (hypothetically speaking) unless he was caught on camera, he’d just continue to drive because there’s a good chance, based on the general condition and engine designation of most of our local police cars, he could probably out-run them with what he drives.
It’s true actually. I think the solution would be to get a few supercars or sports cars into the law enforcement fleet. The guys overseas sure know how to do it. In the States, the cops in Florida drive Dodge Challengers, in Germany Porsche 911 Carreras (among other toys) do patrol duty, and there’s even a police-owned Ferrari 612 Scagletti floating around the United Kingdom. If not to make it easier for the police to catch criminals, these cars certainly make the job look a lot more appealing.
Check out my list of a few of the fastest and coolest police cars from around the world.
