The cop cars are highly modified in the US. First they were using lame cars like the ford Crown victoria ( really huge boat ) but now they have started using cars like the camaro and the corvettes.
I remeber having seen on some website that in Europe they have Lambos and lotus as cop cars. I am not sure how true that is.

Guy's see if the following specs make any sense...

Power 300 bhp / 224 KW @ 6000 rpm
Torque 407 Nm / 300 ft lbs @ 4250 rpm

for a normal police car

Check the details here:

How about the Indian Cops getting a Octavia RS??

Ps: As soon as they hear a turbowhistle, they will think there is something wrong with the car.

Wrong, it will be used to attend to fatcat weddings and carry lavish take home presents.

In europe, the BMW and Mercs are totally stripped out and beefed up for police work, never used for official "personal \' use
