Re: Down Under GT
yeah, looks very cool, but they don't actually use them as "Police" cars. A number of manufacturers give them vehicles as publicity, and the Police are careful to call them "community cars". You won't actually see them out on the roads enforcing the law - the cars are used for hack work to take members of the constabulary to meetings, liaision duties, etc. I've even seen a 2 seater SMART (Yikes!) in police livery at City Central police station.
A few years ago, Subaru gave the NSW police a couple of WRX's - which were then promptly used by some over zealous officers for highway patrol work - the outcome being none of the fines issued would stand up in court (spedo's not calibrated, etc).
those crazy police.....
