If you live in Delhi, you must be familiar with white colored Innova driven by police personnels all around the city. If you live in Mumbai, you must have seen Qualis and Bolero. And then there are tried and tested Maruti Suzuki Gypsy and Mahindra Jeep used widely in our country. But have you ever imagined the police driving supercars like Lamborghini or Ferrari? Well, it might not be true in India, but many countries offer their security forces such exotic and fast paced cars.
Here's a list of top 10 suave and exotic police cars from around the world!
1. Country - Dubai
Vehicle - BMW i8
Dubai is the land of exotic and fast cars and Dubai police force don't want to be left behind. That's why they have included every single fast car in their fleet. We are not sure if the cars serve any functional purpose or they are purely meant to intimidate the perpetrators. Well, the BMW i8 can surely give some scary chills to anyone planning to rob a bank in Dubai! The hybrid sportscar not only looks good, but is very fast and efficient too.
2. Country - Italy
Vehicle - Lamborghini Gallardo
While Dubai is the land of the exotic and fast cars, Italy is the place where these cars are manufactured. Home to the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati, Italy is a safe haven thanks to the Italian State Police. And why's it so? Because the Italian cops like to drive and nab criminals in the 560bhp, four wheel drive Lamborghini Gallardo, the most sold Lamborghini ever and the one that can do 0-100 kmph in 3.7 seconds.
3. Country - Dubai
Vehicle - Lamborghini Aventador
No, BMW i8 is not the only fast and flashy car in the Dubai's police fleet. In fact, the Dubai Police is known for owning cars that no other police agency in the world owns. One of the many such vehicles is the Lamborghini Aventador supercar. The Raging Bull is the fastest Lamborghini to be ever built and is a perfect car to nab speeding rich brats on the perfect highways of Dubai.
4. Country - US
Vehicle - Dodge Charger
The crime rate is at its peak in the U.S and the high-speed highway chases are a common phenomenon in America. To replace the worn out Crown Vic with something quick, the law enforcement agencies opted for the Dodge Charger, the indigenous American muscle car. Dodge Charger is credited to record the fastest lap ever by any cop car during the Michigan State Police’s Vehicle Evaluation Race. A tremendous choice we would say!
5. Country - UK
Vehicle - Lotus Evora S
To stop the young lads of the U.K from speeding, drunk driving and not wearing a seatbelt, the local police needed something fast. In came the good folks at Lotus and gifted the Evora S sportscar to the police departments in Norfolk, Sussex, Essex, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire. The message sent out was loud and clear - Don't mess with the U.K police.
6. Country - Dubai
Vehicle - Aston Martin One-77
Yes, yes, we know! But what can we do? Dubai police virtually owns every car from a Bentley, to an Aston Martin, a Ferrari, a McLaren and other heavy duty supercars. The only remaining car was the Bond car itself and Dubai police didn't lose a moment to include it in its fleet. The Aston Martin One-77 sends out the message loud and clear - If you've got to fight crime, you better do it in style.
7. Country - UK
Vehicle - McLaren 12C
Like Dubai, U.K also boasts of having many supercars in its arsenal to fight the crime. But this particular model is a special one. McLaren loaned the 12C Spider to the West Midlands Police Department for the Autosport International show at Birmingham’s NEC as a demonstrator. Used to stop criminals for a small time period, the McLaren 12C doesn't serve as a police vehicle anymore.
8. Country - UK
Vehicle - Jaguar XF
Any U.K police department without a Jaguar serving as an official police vehicle is incomplete. Born in U.K, the Jaguar serves as the official carrier for the Prime Miniter of the Great Britain too. As for the police department, the Jaguar XF is used to chase the criminals, thanks to its ability of doing 0-100 kmph in 6.4 seconds and a top speed of 250 kilometres an hour.
9. Country - USA
Vehicle - Nissan GT-R
This one is a recent addition to an undisclosed police department in the U.S.A. Designed by EVI, the Nissan GT-R in talks here served as a spy car for an undercover cop. And that's why the police department can't be named. The Nissan GT-R is hailed as one of the most sought-over and usable sportscar with proper 4-seats. A perfect place to sit in as a criminal!
10. Country - Italy
Vehicle - Lamborghini Huracan
We saw the Lamborghini Gallardo and the Aventador serving as the official police vehicles in Dubai and Italy. The latest from the house of Lamborghini isn't left behind either as the Huracan is indicted in the police fleet of Italy. The beautiful machine was first gifted by Lamborghini CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, to the Italian State Police head, Prefect Alessandro Pansa. And soon, like the rest of the world, Gallardo was replaced by the Huracan pan Italy.
