Earlier this month, I got an email with a link to the 12 coolest police cars in action. The majority of them are from Europe where, let’s be honest, they’ve got some ridiculous cars. To the best of my knowledge, your every day beat cop is driving a sub-compact, goofy looking car; however, they have high-performance pursuit cars as well. I’m gonna guess the lion’s share of this list fall into the latter category.
You can check out the list here.
My opinion on the list? So glad you asked. The first thing that stood out to me as I scrolled down the list was to wonder if Europeans have no sense of what colors go together. Was there a clearance sale on cheap day-glo paint? Holy shit…
On the other hand, if you throw me the keys to a Lamborghini Gallardo and it just happens to be bright fucking orange and blue…well, then you ain’t gonna see those keys for quite some time.
The second thing that stood out? What in the hell is what could quite possibly be the gayest car ever (if cars could have a sexual preference, that is) doing on this list of straight up bad ass, no shit, go faster than Flash cars?!? Really, Mini? Don’t try to be so butch. Driving this car as a police officer would be like me riding one of those electric trike pieces of shit because it’s “eco-friendly”. I wouldn’t take me seriously on that thing, why should you?
Lastly, I love that good old-fashioned American muscle made it to the top two. That car just looks mean. Which, in turn, means it will never drive the streets of the Town. We wouldn’t want folks to think we were mean, now.
Thanks for the email, Chris! I loved seeing police vehicle options from the world round!
