Law enforcement is a difficult job. Officers must engage in high-speed chases and confront dangerous criminals to keep the public safe. As a result, from the weapons they use to the cars they drive, they must be equipped with the best tools and vehicles. Although most police departments choose their cars based on practicality and affordability, some own vehicles that are impressive enough to catch the attention of car buffs. Here are thirty of the most impressive police cars used around the world.
Alfa Romeo GT
In Australia, the official police vehicle is the sporty Alfa Romeo GT. Its design is so stylish that it was voted the world’s most beautiful coupe in 2004.
It is easy to imagine the police in the Netherlands chasing down criminals in style while driving an Opel Speedster. The blaring sirens on the vehicle would only bring attention to the vehicle’s smooth lines.
