I think they realized it already. Which is why they now have a Nissan GT-R.

Practically speaking, Where in India are police going to be able to use these "super-cars".

1) The domestic market dosnt produce any significant muscle/tuned/exotic cars for them to worry about rapid acceleration and speed.

2) The people that own exotics most likely dont have to worry about police.

3) The roads are so congested that you will most likely be stopped by a roaming cow on the street than a cop.


On a different note, these supercars in cop colours look really out of place. The only cars that might match the personality of a cop are american cars. The mustangs/chargers/hummers. Cant beat that.

If you have seen Transformers and recall the black mustang, you will know what i mean.

That F999 and the Chopper are working concepts for display only. The Abu Dhabi Police have no plans to use them in their day to day operations.

For this they rely on their Mercedes Benz and VW GTi cars and Nissan Pathfinders.

The have this Nissan GT-R now as well as a Chevy Camaro for high spped persuits I guess.

Some images I took at a museum in Old Town, San Diego. Had an entire jail recreated in it along with weapons and other equipment used.

That's the same one. The pic is of the old Gallardo you're talking about, not a 560-4.

I have seen those ageing Crown Vic Interceptors doing some serious speeds on the freeways. Just imagine what they can do with this.

a twin turbo Ecoboost 3.5-liter V6 delivering 365 HP and 350 lb-ft of torque.

The Lambo Gallardo and the Nissan GT-R are probably the best cop-cars in the world.
I wish I could be a part of the Italian police team someday.
