Today there are many fast cars on the roads and police could soon have trouble keeping up with some of them.
This can of course be solved by police getting even faster cars, which police in some countries have done.
The following is a list of police cars that you can not possibly outrun, and if you see one of these appear in the rearview mirror, wanting you to pull over, do the smart thing and stop.
And if you don't, these cars are so fast that they can pass you, drive a few miles and set up roadblocks before you get there.
Who else but the Italian police could find to use a Lamborghini Gallardo as a police car?
This one should have no problem catching small time crooks on Vespas and Fiat 500's!
Under the hood you'll find a V10 engine.
Gallardo came in 2004 and is so far Lamborghinis most produced model.
Just try to outrun it with a Volvo or a Fiat.
The German Polizei-Porsche on the picture is a TechArt-Prepared 997. What is under the hood is unknown as they delivered various tunig kit for the 997 model.
TechArt also offered upgraded chassis and other styling other than what the car originally. Of course to upgrade the already excellent driving characteristics even further. Also check the air intake on the rear spoiler over the rear fender.
Chevrolet Corvette Z06
No, not all the police in the US are driving big Ford sedans. At one and the other station they have something better. Such as here in Bloomfield Hills.
This is a Chevrolet Corvette Z06, with a LS6 V8's 405 hp under the long hood. The Z06 model is an optimized version of the regular Corvette. The Z06 variant is present in both the C5 and C6 editions. The car in the pictures is a C5. Ie manufactured between 1997 and 2004, when C6 took over.
BMW 3 Series is not that special, you might think? Take another look. This is a M3! The police in the Netherlands use this when they want to catch people who have smoked more than their socks...
Did you know that this year it is 25 years since the first M3 (E30) came? The car in the pictures is a 2008 model E92. The engine is a V8 of 4 liters, and it does 0-100 in 4.7 seconds - if you do everything right.
Not sure if it's from China or Japan ... but I'm guessing on Japan! And the car is a Nissan Skyline GTR R 34. Fifth generation that was produced between 1999 and 2002. The engine is a 2.5-liter providing 276 hp, thanks partly to twin-turbo. The car also has 4-wheel drive.
The London police has seen the need for something that goes a little faster, and has bought a Lamborghini Murciélago. But in the rush hour one can easily walk from it, even if the engine is a V12 6.2-liter and 580 hp. The name Murciélago stems from a bull that survived 24 sword cuts in a bullfight in 1879.
Another car used by the British police.
Exige is a coupe version of Lotis Elise. A small and quick car. The engine is of all things a collaboration between Toyota and Yamaha - it is 1.8-liter and provide 193 hp. Enough to send the small car from 0-100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds.
Dodge Viper came in 1992, and was constantly upgraded along the way. Viper comes in three generation. This is a SRT-10, with a V10 engine of 8.3-liter and 504 hp under the enormous hood.
Now the car is not made anymore, but we hope of course for a successor. The car in the pictures is serving in South Carolina in the United States - probably with a pretty proud sheriff behind the wheel.
Again, if one of these appear in the rearview mirror, be smart and stop on command.
