    Aside from the looks, it would be neat if they had crossbows mounted on them.

    Chargers? Chargers!?

  • "Sir, you need to put down your weapon  [ Fri Dec 2 2011 9:55 AM ]

    or I will shoot you with my crossbow." I think the police should use shurikens first, but it's a tough call.

    When Ray Schultz says he likes the new design because it look more like a law enforcement vehicle and that it takes "technology to the next level," what he means is "Hell yeah, I'll trade in my taxi for the Batmobile!"

  • Put the police in pink Fiestas  [ Sun Dec 4 2011 10:15 AM ]

    THAT would be recognizable.

    They spend 99% of their time driving around by themselves. Maybe they are worried about their prisoners having enough room in the back seat?

    And, the new Fiestas have more horsepower than a 1960 Corvette!

    Excuse me: The 2011 Fiesta is as fast as a 1960 Corvette, with about 1/3 the horsepower.

  • It doesn't matter  [ Mon Dec 5 2011 2:00 PM ]

    The engines police cars use are not the stock engines, anyway.

    There's a reason a modded BMW M3 can't quite outrun a squad of Crown Vics on a highway. Under normal circumstances, this would never happen.

  • Just imagine  [ Mon Dec 5 2011 2:20 PM ]

    The Fiesta Interceptor motor though.

  • Outrun the cops?  [ Mon Dec 5 2011 3:41 PM ]

    Sure you can. As I understand it even the fleet Camaros are limited to 155mph. Shit, my sedan is good for close to that. The problem is that there's a fuck ton of cops, and only one of you. They don't want to chase you, chases are bad news for everyone. They're just going to stop you with a spike strip or road block. And with a helicopter in the air it's not going to be hard to know where you are going.
