Police cars have sure come a long way from boring old Crown Vics and Chevy Impalas. Check out these crazy police cruisers! From a John Deere tractor to a Lambo, these cops got the streets covered.
Though this 5-second drag racer would make an excellent interceptor, this car is for promotional purposes only. This pic was taken at the 2013 Bullit/Mach1 Shootout where the car achieved speeds up to 250 mph in seconds!
Bad weather doesn't seem to stop crime all that much. That's why all-terrain vehicles like this Snow Trax Land Cruiser are used by departments to traverse blizzard-like conditions and heavy snow.
This Caddie is a squad car for the Bloomfield Hills, Michigan police department. We especially like the handsome red color of this Cadillac XLR-V Police Cruiser as well as its bustling 320 horsepower V8 under the hood.
You're probably wondering what the police are doing with a big slow John Deere tractor. Where this rural police department is located, officers need a vehicle that can traverse mud, snow, high water, and even tow heavy equipment. What this tractor lacks in speed it certainly makes up in utility. The tractor is currently being used by the Lincolnshire PD in England to show that they are serious about rural crime.
Leave it to Italian police to have a Lamborgini squad car. This exotic ride boasts an amazing 560 horsepower thanks to its roaring 5.2L V10 motor. With its 14 mpg city rating though, we doubt this Gallardo hits the streets too often but it has been used to catch a few criminals and is great for promotional events.
Police won't be catching too many criminals with this luxurious Cadillac Fleetwood limo, but they are sure to be traveling in style. This limousine is in use by the NYPD and is used to transport VIPs.
The Lotus Esprit S4 has to be one of the most striking cars of the 90s. It's no surprise that some police departments have used them to promote public safety as well as turn heads on the street. That bright orange sure is eye-catching!
The wealthy city of Dubai in the UAE has some of the snazziest police cruisers. Among them is in fact the fastest car in the world, the beastly Bugatti Veyron. This 1,200 horsepower supercar can reach 245 mph in seconds thanks to its enormous W16 engine. The Dubai police department also has a fleet of rare sports cars that include an Aston Martin One-77, a Bentley Continental GT, a Ferrari FF, a Mercedes-Benz Brabus G-Wagon, a Camaro, and plenty more.
This peculiar-looking vehicle is a bulletproof EV being used in China. The strange spherical windows are meant to give officers a full 360-view of their surroundings while also keeping them safe from projectiles. The car can reach 50 mph thanks to its electric motor and features unique gull-style doors.
The Hampshire Constabulary in the UK was in need of a new type of vehicle to help it appeal to more citizens. Instead of going for a snazzy Lambo or supercar, they went in the completely opposite direction. This pedal car was built by students at a local school and is meant to break down the social barriers between officers and residents. The end result is not your typical crime-stopper but a nice outreach tool and conversation starter.
