Now This Is A Police Car

Now why can’t the Vancouver Police get anything like this? I think the only non-sedan police car they have is some riced out Honda Civic. I wonder if the police officers in the station fight over who get to drives this car?

    I bet … People in the US would still try to outrun the cop if they saw that in the rear view mirror …

    😈 Just some crazy people out there!

      That would fail though!

      1. not unless they had the same care 😈

  2. Guk says:

    Italians do it best :).

    Wrong-O John. The police down in Tsawwassen, near the ferry, used to run a Dodge Stealth, though I’m not sure if they use it anymore.

    That was one sexy cop car.

    1. Ed Lau says:

      Please don’t tell me you just compared a Dodge Stealth to a Gallardo…

      John: the cops here in Vancouver have a supercharged Mini and a WRX STi as far as I know.

      1. Marc says:

        I’ve seen pictures of a Viper police car. Can’t picture that being anywhere but the US 😉

      2. John Chow says:

        Oh ya, I forgot about the WRX. But I didn’t know about the blown Mini.

      3. Soultrance says:

        Definitely not comparing the two, no comparison to make there, was just saying there is something other then the usual Lincolns cruising the streets around here.

        Never seen the WRX or Mini before, very cool.

        1. Ed Lau says:

          The Mini was made as part of the now defunct PACER program but is a regular cop car/show car. I know the driver well as he is an active REVscene.net user and shows up at all our meets.

    2. Dave says:

      Dodge =/ Lamborghini

      No way, no how!

  4. dude says:

    I told you chow, next trip Europe 😀

  5. The local police just got one here. 😛

    I bet it gets wrecked eventually. I doubt they can speed all around Italy and not bumb something eventually.

  6. Marc says:

    As for the competition as to who gets to drive it, I’ll be that if you’ve had an accident before, you’re out of the running 🙂

    1. Dave says:

      Haha no doubt marc!

    2. A cop who gets speeding tickets while off-duty…he should get to drive the car. 👿

  7. Brendan says:

    Ive seen cops with hummers in Jersey. And here in Goergia they have some new mustangs.

  8. Aaron Cook says:

    Pretty sweet ride for the fuzz over there. Too bad you won’t get a ride to the station in that baby. No back seat! 😆

  9. Eric says:

    Believe it or not that car was actually a gift from Lamborghini to the Italian police. A $280,000 gift… pretty nice of them huh? I could use a gift like that. 😎

    $1,000,000

    1. Dave says:

      I think we call could Eric! 🙂

    2. Ma Ma Mia!.. I’m ataliano can i havea a presente porfavor? 😯

  10. Scott says:

    The cops in Toronto were running a couple of stripped-down Camaro Z-28s that were basically street-legal race cars (top speed around 165 mph) but I think they have replaced them with Hemi Chargers.

  11. Ronaldo says:

    To chase Lamborghinis, you need a Lamborghini. I bet German cops have some Porsches.

  12. blogdinero says:

    I like one 🙄

  13. Massimo says:

    Just Marketing 🙂 Lamborghini gave that car for free to police for PR. I guess after that video it has been parked and never used ! At least I’ve never seen a car like that used in everyday jobs by italian police 🙂

    1. John Chow says:

      Kinda like Ferrari giving the last Enzo to the Pope. Of course the Pope has no use for it.

      1. Eric says:

        Ahhh come on! Of course the pope has use for an Enzo! I bet he takes that thing on some back road in Rome and just lets it loose. Haha, funny mental image eh?

        Picture of the pope driving his Enzo (haha)

        1. jem5 says:

          dude, your post leads to your blog with no picture 😡

        2. Wheres the pic eric?.. if you’re going to claim to have the pic then post it :mrgreen:

      2. mao says:

        Yeah. Especially because Vatican City doesn’t have (a lot of) roads.
        :mrgreen:

      3. Eric says:

        So come to find out, the car was given to the pope, and sold for $1.2 million. The money was used to support the tsunami relief efforts in southeast Asia.

        1. Marc says:

          That sounds rather reasonable. I’m glad to hear that’s what happened. Someone who wanted an Enzo got one, the church was able to help the needy, the needy got some of the help they needed. Win, win, win.

  14. James says:

    Fancy police cars usually just end up at public relations specials.

    1. Marc says:

      Yes, but they sure do shine at those PR events 🙂

  15. Wow, we really need something like this in the states. Although, I don’t think the government would actually fund something like this. How do you manage to find such a good videos? ❓

  16. Shaun Carter says:

    Here in Michigan, USA I see a lot of Mustangs as police cars. they have the lights built into the grille and set in the windows so you wouldn’t even know if it was a cop creeping up behind you on the expressway.

  17. Wow thats pretty sexy.

    I can’t imagine they would really use it in a car chase, though.

  18. Tyler says:

    Vancouver uses suped up mustangs for the TransCanada hwy 🙂

    I’ve seen em

  19. Italian police are also known for riding those posh BMW big bikes, aren’t they.

    1. with their speedo bottoms and no shirts right?

  20. Simonne says:

    Our best police cars are some VW Passat. I suppose they can’t race that, can they?

    1. Marc says:

      Depends what they did to the Passat 😀

      Police departments usually have significantly overpowered vehicles…

  21. Jason says:

    This has been done a long time back. You heard about it now? ❓ 😈

  22. Amanda says:

    We have something like that out here I don’t know how often it gets used but I know the demanded one. I think the officers just wanted to drive around in one.

  23. Martin says:

    Hi, I’m a long lime lurker first time poster. It’s really strange you just posted about this car, as I have just posted a pic of this very car when I saw it in Rome. You can view it here:

    Lamborghini Police Car

  24. jem5 says:

    John-
    You really need to come to NYC. Then we could just walk around and look in public garages at cars like this or this one…

    Just had one pull in front of me on a sidewalk into a public parking garage…always think of the scene from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off with the parking attendants driving the Ferrari when I see someone parking in a garage like that.

    Maybe I should get a temp job at a garage….

    😈

  25. Court says:

    That is one ridiculously sick police car. The police here seems to like Crown Vics a lot.

  26. Wes Mahler says:

    that vid won’t play for me

  27. Amanda says:

    did you try using another browser?

  28. green says:

    I can’t believe this is a police car 😀

  29. I saw this video a while back…all they drive are chargers around here.

  30. Never in my life have I seen anything like it. That’s truly an amazing car. Wonder who decides who can drive the car. ? 😈

    Great post!
