My mate's brother sent me a pic last week of him standing next to it. He's an inspector but didn't get to drive it:(

Edit: BTW He is always complaing to the board about how they need better cars. They have 520 d's, mondeo's and astras so obviously as soon as they're up against a proper car they've got no chance.
The powers that be won't agree because they don't want the public to think they're spending to much money!

Yeah, But it WAS donated, so they cant really say they've been spending, how true that is I have NO idea, either way, I wouldn't want to see that in my rear view should I stray the wrong way of the speedo on the M54...........well, ANY car with blue flashing lights to be honest :hihi

I seem to recall seeing a Subaru Impreza police car round here not too long ago, I'd imagine that would keep up with the majority.

They want all traffic officers to have better cars. Theres not much point in having a lotus if it's 50miles away!
I was pulled by an impreza in gloucester about 10 years ago. Haven't seen any for years though but they must have them coz I've seen 'The interceptors'!!
