I decided to make a random thread as I am bored on a Friday night. What in your opinion is the best looking police cars from around the world? Without being biased, I think the British BMWs look great:



Also love the Subarus!



Anyone else got any suggestions?

We have some pretty cool looking cop cars around here. This one is specifically for finding unregistered and stolen vehicles in a few second, something I thought all cop cars could do.

The Polizia had two of these Lamborghini Gallardos. Sadly one has since been written off.

It does look funny seeing a brand new Dodge Charger with an LED bubble  http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v230/gofast11/MSP/Chargerreflection.jpg

Good news from the State of Michigan is that they will be getting a lot more bubbles on the road soon. They have an academy going on right now with 80ish trooper recruits and another starting this fall. Catching up on the huge shortage of troopers.

As do I. The blue ones in particular are far too bright at night, to the point that I've been blinded by them while passing the scene of an accident.
