Too bad (or maybe it's a good thing) the cops in the US are too stupid to buy real cars!

They have the RS patrolling around Vancouver B.C. as an undercover. Don't race that bad boy!

I think cops in the US have to buy US makes (buy American). That's why there are cop Mustangs, Vettes, and even Vipers.

There are probably exceptions for under cover cars, but I don't think you'll see a foriegn car with lights and stickers in the US. Not that it really makes a difference since all the parts are made elsewhere.

That's still my theory on why GM bought into FHI for access to Subaru's AWD system. I think they plan to use it in their Impala including a Police Interceptor version. Perhaps GM was paying attention when overseas countries started trying out WRX police cars.

Of course I could be completely wrong... :lol:

A new police car in the states?

Dammmnn.. Going Swedish!!

Radically altered Volvo T5.. with:


A camera which will automatically recognize criminals at the touch of a button.

A tool to allow it to check 23 million number plates in one second.

A touch-screen or voice-activation access to the entire range of police databases and crime fighting tools and the latest on-board speed-enforcement system.


Damn... :eek:

"If we see somebody who looks dodgy we can point a camera at them and see if they are known criminals. This is all about arresting criminals and giving operational officers the best chance to arrest criminals."





Glad I'm an upstanding citizen.

:run:

yet another WRX.
With only 244bhp and modded by Prodrive they will be UK Imprezas not WRX's - the only UK cars to be called WRX are the 2001 bugzilla versions and onwards.....the GC8's were only ever WRX's if they were imports and tended to have a tad more BHP depending on year ;)

they had that one here, as soon as you were doing 15 MPH over it flashed red and snapped a picture, was ruled unconstitutional and innaccurate because it could be radaring the car going the ohter way and take your picture...so i am not sure they are still trying to use them...but it'll catch ya off guard blind corner and your radar lights up like a christmas tree.
