simply an awesome thread....damn those lucky cops...Hey, btw in my last visit to chennai, I saw cops having Hyundai Accents, so is the indian police finally getting rid of the beloved Mahindra.
And just a thought, why did they go for hyundai's , thot they would go for the indigos.

Guys.. did anyone notice how 'well' the picture of the sherrif in Texas - Running Radar Texas Style'.. has been photoshop altered?? Its obviously not right, as there's no reason why the sign indicating the speed { Speed Limit 155} , would be facing the camera, and the cars parked in the opposite direction. Cars are pulled over,on the side that they'r driving, and so the sign ought to be facing the other way.
Just an observation...

A Brabus Rocket CLS V12 S police car. Brabus has taken a 6.3 liter V12 engine and souped it up to produce 730hp at 5100rpm and a mind-blowing 1320 Nm of torque from 2100rpm!.
The brainchild of the German Federal Traffic Ministry and the Association of German Automobile Tuners, created to encourage drivers to adopt safe and legal tuning practices

Nice, though a similar thread exists. As for the UK Gallardo, it's Giallo paint with fluorescent and reflective stickers, not a paintjob.

I also doubt if these exotics can survive on our roads in hands of our forces
