these are MSN's top 10 police cars
(i think they may be wrong on a couple of choices!)
clicky (http://cars.uk.msn.com/News/Top_ten_article.aspx?cp-documentid=2517116&wa= wsignin1.0)
I saw that on another Forum I frequent. I have the Porsche as a screen saver...:drool:
you sad man!!!
he mitsu would look good as a screensaver!
but they forgot the Volvo V70:laughing:
The Volvo V70 Isn't 'exotic' enough to be in that list as it's too popular nowadays! I only have the Porsche as it was in screen saver size on the site I visited. I hate it when you use an unsuitably sized image as a screen saver because it either looks too squashed or too stretched, lol...Oh, and they should spell Police backwards on that Mitsu....much more realistic, lol
I think they left of a few or should have extended the list.
There is a HIGHLY modfied terminator cobra here locally that was consfiscated and turned into a police car.
There is also a higly modified ls1 camaro that works for the state he used to work for northlake and hes packing a HEALTHY dose of nitrous. haha besides that it looks okay.
All of the top ten cars were from European forces....maybe having a US car wasn't an option? :laughing:
THey left out the Crown Vic!! How could they forget that???? :doh:
because thats too popular, like the Volvo V70T5 is on our roads!
The top one's a Kent Traffic car if I'm not mistaken (Unless I am mistaken,
they seem to be the only force with silver Ovlovs)....I must get out more,
Edit: Grrr...I looked at where the image is from.....Cambridgeshire aint too far out, lol. Isn't that your original neck of the woods?
yes!:mrgreen: but they tend to use those fandangled new Skoda Octavia VRs'
Alot of forces use the Skoda vRS now, I can see why, they're great cars and
are powerful enough for the job they do. They're also not as expensive as
some traffic cars our forces use....like BMW X5s (our force...Hants, has a
few as below) or Merc MLs etc etc :laughing:
devon and cornwall are filled with Ford Focuses, Volvo S80's and V70's, a
couple of unmarked volvo s/v70's anda mitsubishi evo 8!
a few Range Rovers with the blue and yellow squares!
Yeah, we have our fair share of Focus'. Along with Volvo V40's and the occassional Vectra as a traffic car. By the way, I edited the above post, you can now see what our council tax goes on, lol...Or mine atleast (Hampshire)
im joking...crown vics suck
How is the spyker 7th?
maybe because it isnt the best car to use apart from highway/motorway
pursuit! like our volvo or other cop cars have space for traffic cones,
strips, stingers etc etc and still have performance and room to seat 5, the
spyker has no room for extra kit (so it would have to have a back up unit)
and it cant seat more than 2!
the Devon and Cornwall Constabulary (as they are properly known as) also benefit from these!!!
great little soft roader, used for chasing chavs going across fields/down country lanes on motorbikes/scooters etc!
