“To serve and to protect” – that’s the writing on every cop car in the United States and that’s exactly what they’re trying to do – to keep us safe and to serve the greater good. However, as you’ll find out by the end of this article, the policemen around the globe also (occasionally) love a little bit of that luxury when it comes to cars.
Yep, the law enforcement has its perks as well, and today we’ll talk about the baddest and the coolest cop vehicles out there – the list is pretty impressive, so, buckle up and try not to hate 🙂
Hey, if even one young fella enlists after this post the world will be a better place! And one final thing: all the cars in this list are as dope as it gets, so, the 1 to 10 is just a formality – every last one of them deserves the number one spot. Alright, let’s roll!
10 Baddest Cop Cars. №1 – Lamborghini Aventador
I know that the era of street-racing is far gone, but there are still some folks riding in the night and let’s not count off the crime wave that’s been rising lately. So, the police are going for the best of the best – the fastest cars in the world to keep the streets safe. Now, everybody knows that the Sheiks know how to party, right? And Dubai is definitely one of the most impressive places on planet Earth, so, it shouldn’t come to you as a surprise that the law enforcements over there drive only the coolest vehicles to date.
It’s actually quite common to see a Lamborghini Aventador with the police lights and equipment on the roads of UAE. This car is ridiculously fast and no outlaw in Middle East can run away from the good cops – it easily accelerates to 200MPH (miles per hour) and looks stunning at the same time. Come on, it’s a Lamborghini – what did you expect?
№2 – Cadillac CTS-V
Obviously, we know how to get down here in the States as well! Did you know that the there is a solid dozen of mighty and sexy Cadillac CTS-Vs patrolling the hoods of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan? Well, now you do! Thanks to the police sergeant Noel Clason, one of Detroit’s biggest players – GM (General Motors) made a unique series of CTS-Vs, especially for the cops.
How cool is that? The cars pack a super-strong engine that’s good for 556 Horsepower and has a max speed of 163MPH. Acceleration is pretty impressive as well: the local cops go from zero to 60 in staggering 3.9 seconds.
№3 – Ford Interceptor
Another legend of the automobile industry from Michigan, Detroit – Ford Motors – introduced the sleek and classy Interceptor back in 2007. You’ve got a sedan and an SUV, and they both fight crime like they were born for it.
With 365HP under that hood, these vehicles jump from zero to 100 miles per hour in just about 20 seconds; so, no criminal out there can outrun the police if it’s behind the wheels of an Interceptor. The official motto is “POLICE TESTED. STREET PROVEN” – that’s like the perfect description.
№4 – Brabus Rocket
Ever heard about the German Secretary of Transportation? They drive super-cool Brabus Rocket vehicles (a Mercedes-Benz series) that fly from zero to 60 in 3.2 seconds and go as fast as 225 miles per hour (that’s even faster than the Cadillac!) Yep, the Germans know how to pick them, and, with that 6.2 liter twin-turbocharged engine and “Polizei” written on the sides you just know that nobody messes with the cops.
The message is pretty clear. By the way, in 2006 the Rocket set the world speed record by a “legal” vehicle on the track in Nardò (that’s in Southern Italy).
№5 – Dodge Charger Pursuit
The Dodge Charger Pursuit is simply the most popular and the most recognizable police car here in America. Cops love it for the aggressive and “angry” looks, that strong front bumper, and, of course, speed. It comes packed with a V6 engine (a V8 is also available) and can easily reach 140MPH per hour.
It’s quite a premium car, however, thanks to the reduced cost in production (because of the serial orders by the police stations) it’s not that rare to catch on the streets as the super cars mentioned above.
№6 – Chevrolet Caprice PPV
Chevrolet, or Chevy, GM’s biggest brand to date, also has a strong contestant in today’s list. The Caprice PPV looks like a regular police car from a movie about criminals – big headlights, all white with some lines of blue, and, of course, a mighty front bumper to ram those bad bandits; plus it’s got a max speed of 149MPH. The Caprice PPV was introduced in 2009 and since 2011 it’s only sold exclusively to law enforcement agencies in the United States and Canada. So, if you wanna drive a car like that you’re gonna have to go through (illegal) black market routes or just have a cop friend who will be kind enough to let you ride this thing 🙂
№7 – Ariel Atom
True, this one looks a lot like a race car (a tiny one, I might add). The funny thing about it is there are no doors, no windows, and no roof. That might sound to you like an odd approach to comfort, but it’s actually pretty cozy in that front seat. Besides, it’s SUPER FAST and shoots 0-to-60MPH in 2.5 seconds. Max speed is around 225 miles per hour and the Atom is packed with a 300 horses-strong engine with a 6-speed transmission and RWD. I bet the officers have tons of fun with this car, riding through the sunset like true street-racers!
№8 – Lamborghini Gallardo
Another Lambo, another great car. The company specifically manufactured this one for the Italian force. Nothing special to it, except it looks great, feels great, goes super-fast and makes folks respect the police for just driving a car like that. And it looks especially dope with the classic police pattern turned around – white on blue, not vice versa.
№9 – Spyker C8
The Spyker C8 is a serious statement from the Dutch: packed with an impressive 406HP engine it reaches a top speed of 186MPH per hour. It’s a pretty popular vehicle and you could see it in the Fast & Furious 6 movie and a lot of video games, like the latest Driveclub, The Crew, Gran Turismo 5, etc. The unusual looks make it stand out, and that’s cool – after all those Lamborghinis and Detroit heavy-weights a tiny sneaky car like the Sypker is a welcome sight.
№10 – Lotus Evora
The Brits are with us today as well: in 2013 a bunch of Evoras from Lotus were given to certain police stations all over Great Britain to fight those dodgers, drunk drivers and douche bags. It easily makes that zero to 60 jump in less than 5 seconds and inspires the community with a stylish design and those big kind headlights that almost look like human eyes.
Alright, that’s the top 10 baddest cop cars list for y’all.
Don’t be surprised to see one of those cruisin’ down the block in your hood – just try not to mess with them, ok? Or maybe you already had a funny/not so much experience with a sleek police ride? Share in the comments!
