Lick Even getting arrested in Italy is done in style!!

Saw these two 159s on a recent trip to Rome earlier this month - The Polizia looks so cool!

You wouldn't mind going to jail in one of these!

I was a bit worried about taking the photo of the Carabinieri as they are not known for their sense of humour......................

Re: Even getting arrested in Italy is done in style!!

Are those white stripes on the bonnet of the blue 159 a reflection on a shiny bonnet or is it an actual part of the paint job?

Thumbs Up Re: Even getting arrested in Italy is done in style!!

They are white stripes - not reflections. Definately the coolest police car on the planet IMHO.

Re: Even getting arrested in Italy is done in style!!

i was in rome over the weekend and i agree the police over there have fantastic cars, lots of 159's and f/l 166's. i was stood just outside st peters square waiting for bush's motorcade to pass by and the first 2 cars were dark grey f/l 166 very cool. what a terrible job it must be driving around rome in a 166 they are everywhere, every other 166 had a little blue light on the top. the dark blue carabineri 159's look very cool, and i never thought id say that about a police car.
