Police supercars are no longer surprising: Lamborghini, Ferrari and Porsche patrols are in service with departments around the world and seem to hint that you should not joke with the authorities on the roads. But what if the culprit turns off the smooth, level asphalt? The law enforcement officers have an answer to this too! We have collected several weighty arguments in favor of the fact that now it will not be possible to evade justice even on a very cool SUV.
Ford Ranger Raptor, South Wales
The South Wales police know a lot about good cars: they use the brutal Raptor version of the Ford Ranger pickup truck to patrol remote rural areas. He has a two-liter biturbo diesel with a capacity of 213 hp. at 500 Nm of torque and a ten-speed automatic, so it will not be easy for criminals to throw it off the tail. And it's better not to try to get away from it on dirt roads: the reinforced Fox shock absorbers and the Watt mechanism on the rear axle make it a true cross-country sports car.
Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, Australia
Australian security officials have outdone their British counterparts and ordered an even cooler Ford pickup - the powerful and evil SVT Raptor. This tough guy patrols the highways and makes his presence known with flashing beacons in the radiator grille, a large LED roof chandelier and a pretty sweeping colorful livery. However, if suddenly you are unlucky and the police on this thing want to catch up with you, then you will notice it so quickly: after all, there is a 6.2-liter V8 with a capacity of 411 horsepower. If you think of retreating from the highway, it will still catch up: the pickup has front and rear interwheel locks and the coolest, almost racing Fox suspension. So don't even think about getting into a fight with local kangaroos!
Desert buggy, USA
Due to the flow of illegal migrants and drug trafficking from Mexico, American border guards always have enough work: they constantly have to catch up, catch and intercept someone, and they simply cannot do without transport, which would be reasonably fast and passable. Therefore, the border of Mexico and the United States is patrolled by real desert buggies. They are equipped with motors with a capacity of about 200 horsepower, are capable of accelerating to 130 kilometers per hour and can easily withstand work in extreme heat. In addition to the border service, similar buggies work in the American army, in special forces units. And in one of these cars, the President of the United States George W. Bush was taking pictures!
Suzuki Jimny, Italy
Chances are good that this is the most charming police car of those, whose existence does make a practical sense. Italian carabinieri have purchased 20 Suzuki Jimny SUVs to work in the highlands and hard-to-reach regions of the country. By order of the police, the local company FocacciGroup dressed up the cars in livery, equipped them with special signals, a special compartment for storing weapons and a set of chains for wheels. True, Jimny did not become any faster from these modifications: it still has the same one and a half liter engine with 102 horsepower. Mamma mia, you're under arrest!
All-terrain vehicle Shaman, UAE
Big fans of supercars work in the Dubai police: the fleet of their "special vehicles" has become famous all over the world and there you can find Bugatti, Ferrari, Lamborghini and other autoexotics. There is only one problem: all these luxurious cars are absolutely helpless outside the asphalt. The new eight-wheeled super-all-terrain vehicle Shaman of Russian production is called to fix the problem. This monster can swim, feels great in deep sand (this is what attracted the Arabs), turns with all eight wheels, and its ground clearance reaches 450 millimeters. Such machines are produced by the Tver company "Avtoros". In the UAE, Shamans will patrol the desert and participate in rescue operations.
And again about the Arabs.Yes, Elon Musk's strange electric pickup truck will only begin to be produced in 2021, but the Dubai police have already queued up for him - and even showed how this pickup would look in their livery. Obviously, he also has to patrol the desert, and at very high speeds. The air suspension helps the Cybertruck rise above the ground by 406 millimeters, and in the coolest modification, it can accelerate to a hundred in 4.5 seconds and travel up to 480 kilometers without recharging. In general, if you had intentions to misbehave in Dubai after 2021, you better change your mind. Until it's not too late.
