Its the Fuzz! When we think of a Ford Crown Victoria, we think of a police car. When we think of a Audi R8, we think of a fast sleek supercar. Now how about a Police issued Audi R8? At least that’s what the Germans thought of. Certainly most would argue that it isn’t very economic or practical or even safe for that matter, but what criminal would run from that? Unfortunately most of the cars below are show cars, used as tourist attractions or have limited usage. I guess that’s why there is a thing called a helicopter!
Our comprehensive list of the Worlds Fastest and Coolest Police Cars:
Dubai recieved this $400,000 Lamborghini Aventador and with a city as rich as Dubai and with a good portion of citizens that can afford an exotic sports car, DPD now will be able to keep up with speeders, as the 700 horsepower Aventador can reach a top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h). While that would be the best option, the car will most likely be a publicity stunt and used to “wow” local citizens and tourists as well as increasing the number of police applicants.
Audi R8 GT-R by ABT
The Audi’s 5.2-liter V10 engine kicks out 620 horses and 406 lb-ft of torque. 0-60 comes in at 3.2 seconds, and a top speed of 202 mph. Criminals better try hiding because you know they can’t run with this beast patrolling the streets. Fortunately for the bad guys, this Audi R8 is only a show car. Its sure one of the coolest cop cars in the world.
Brabus CLS V12 S Rocket
With 730 twin-turbocharged horses stampeding under its hood, the Rocket lives up to its name with a top speed of 225.19 mph. With a top speed like that it belongs on the chart for the worlds fastest police cars.
Nissan Skyline R34 GTR
Used by the Japanese Police in highway patrolling. Possibly one of the fastest police cars in the world.
Powered by a 575 bhp V8 and capable of propelling the car to 62 mph in a blistering 2.5 seconds. It is also regarded as one of the fastest cop cars in the world. Though it was only used as a publicity stunt.
Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4
The Gallardo was donated to the head of the Italian Police with 560 hp and a top speed of 203 mph.
7.0 liter supercharged engine and a top speed of over 150 mph. Probably not one of quickest police cars
Aston Martin One-77
The Dubai Police Force has now one of the most rarest supercars in the world, as only 77 were ever made. Not only is this a One-77 but it’s a special edition Q-Series One-77 that features array of new interior and exterior upgrades. Though the Q-Series still keeps the base One-77, 750 horsepower 7.3-liter V12 engine but customers had to pay extra for the other enchantments, which more than likely exceeded $1.4 million. Not only is rare but it’s one of the fastest police cars to hit the streets. This one however, will be used to impress tourists.

276 bhp capable of 0-62 mph in 5.1 seconds and a top speed of 162 mph. Though its only real use is to teach school children about road safety.
The Police Scirocco has numerous upgrades, including an ABT engine kit that raises the horsepower to 210.
Porsche 911 Carrera S by TechArt
3.8 liter boxer engine produces 370 bhp, and is capable of 186 mph. Sprinting to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds.
Holden VE Commodore Series II
The 6.0 liter, V8-powered Holden is actually used daily by the Australian Police.
Spyker C8 Spyder
For the Netherland Police Force, this hand built C8 is powered by an Audi 4.2 liter V8. There are several different versions of the car that get you a wide range of horsepower outputs, but when considering the hefty price tag, I bet they went the more “economical” route.
Ferrari 612 Scaglietti
5.7-liter V12 engine produced 533 bhp and propelled cops to 62 mph in 4.3 seconds. Top speed is said to be 199 mph.
Lamborghini Murcielago LP640
This one is for London but not really. It was only for show as the tax payers would have gone crazy.
BMW 123d Coupe
This AC Schnitzer Police Package has an 2.0 liter turbo diesel, tuned to deliver a maximum output of 241 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque. Top speed is just at 150 mph.
Fitted with a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged diesel engine with 271 bhp.
5.0-liter V8 417 bhp engine that propels law enforcers to 62 mph in just 4.8 seconds.
5.7-liter HEMI V-8 making 370 bhp and 390 lb-ft of torque, achieved 0-60 in just 5.8 seconds. A remapped ECU also allowed for an increased top stop of 151 mph.
