(RareCarMarket.com) – There’s no doubt police cars are fast. How else would they keep up with criminals running away at more than 100 mph? While Ford, Dodge, and Chevy dominate the market for police vehicles in the US, they don’t get much attention in other parts of the world. Instead, other countries’ police forces are sporting some of these amazing vehicles.
Abu Dhabi’s police force has in its possession a limited production Lykan Hypersport model manufactured by W Motors in Lebanon between 2013 and 2017. This $3.4 million supercar comes with a 3.7-liter flat-six engine producing 740 hp and capable of going 0-62 mph in just 2.8 seconds.
For Austrian authorities, a long-standing relationship with Porsche has definitely paid dividends. The company sent this car as a loaner to the police. During the process of lending the 911 Carrera in 2017, Dr. Helmut Eggert, Porsche’s director in Austria, reminisced how it wasn’t uncommon to see a Porsche police car in the 70s and 80s in Austria.
In 2017, Italy’s Highway Patrol received their second Lamborghini Huracán. What better vehicle could Italian authorities use? The company fitted the car to be more of a medical emergency transport than a police car, transporting organs and emergency patients.
Dubai is home to billions of dollars worth of exotic cars, and its police force is no exception. Costing around $1.8 million, the One-77 is well, one of the 77 produced. Officers can enjoy the power of the V12 under the hood and the luxury and exclusivity only 76 others get to enjoy.
While this vehicle may not look as impressive as some others on this list, its electric-gas hybrid powertrain is unique. The Interceptor is crash-rated for a 75 mph impact from the vehicle’s rear. The Interceptor also features Side Protection and Cabin Enhancement (SPACE), further upgrading the frame and structure of the car and keeping occupants as safe as possible.
These exotic police cars often work as public relations tools to promote better community relationships. And why not? These beauties certainly inspire civic pride.
