Sometimes, models that are not yet sold are called up to serve in the police. It seems that the reason is the coincidence of the interests of police departments and PR services of automakers. The first such novelties raise prestige, and it’s just humanly interesting to be at the peak of fashion. The latter receive a peculiar advertisement of their achievements: cars in war paint always attract attention. And the consumer laughs: since they withstand extreme police loads, it means that they are reliable in everyday life.
Of course, not all countries use this approach to staffing a police fleet. The most advanced in this regard are the British and Americans: here you can find cars that would seem to be completely unsuitable for service. For example, the baby Smart or the Mitsubishi i MiEV electric car. However, no one claims that such a majority among patrol cars. But the presence is indicated, and the transfer to the police of such novelties is always furnished with fanfare. We also look into the police garages in search of the curious.
Prisoners in Australia are transported with a certain chic. Unless, of course, they are driven by an extreme Holden van - with a 307-strong "eight" that accelerates the car to 200 km / h.
Rapid Response Vehicle based on the English supercar Kaparo-T1 is in London. It really is fast: it accelerates to hundreds (not kilometers, but miles per hour!) In 5 s, and the maximum speed is 320 km / h.
The equipment of police cars is given the most serious attention. For example, in England it is important to have everything for quick registration and taxiing of road accidents, which is confirmed by the filling of this Ford Galaxy.
The New York Police Department is not far behind progress: 70 Chevrolet-Volt hybrids have recently been handed over here. No less than the car itself, the motto of the American cops is curious: "Delicacy, professionalism, respect."
The electric Mitsubishi i-MiEV does not spoil the air of the English capital and can sneak up on the criminal completely silently. The speed here is secondary. And the novelty of technology is evident!
For more than a year, Italy’s traffic police have been catching up with offenders at the fast Lamborghini Guyardo. Speed is needed not only for chasing, but also for prompt assistance to victims of accidents: on board the Lambo there is a portable resuscitation kit.
In the United States, the Ford Interceptor policeman is equipped with a different slant: here there are entirely computers for accessing the databases, and certainly a pair of large-caliber rifles in special clips.
In 2012 Chevrolet-Caprice, the most powerful kengurin, which serves as a ram for a car of intruders, is interesting. It is curious that the Australian "Holden" is again the basis of the model.
Order is necessary not only on the roads, but also on the water. He is watched by the maritime police, equipped with high-speed jet skis and powerful all-wheel drive tractors based on IVECO-Eurocargo for their transportation by land.
In Hungary, police officers prefer domestic cars. For example, Audi TT, which is assembled exclusively at the Hungarian plant of the Volkswagen concern. Special signals are placed in a particularly flat case in order to least affect the aerodynamics of a sports car.
