During the late 60′s and early 70′s the standard car was a Dodge Polara with a 440 cu in (7.2l) V-8 Police Interceptor package. These were fast cars that could do 135~140 mph day in and day out. Remarkable because they were the standard car used by almost all officers, plus at the time the standard RCMP colors were a distinctly purple-ish hue of blue.

The RCMP during the 90′s and 00′s used Ford Mustangs and Chevrolet Camaros in highway interceptor (full paint and lights) configuration. I’ve seen these cars many times; they were not the standard issue (Chevrolet Caprice with Corvette spec 350 / 5.7l V-8s and later Ford Grand Marquis 302 / 5l V-8s) but many detachments had one to go along with the rest of the fleet. I’ve seen them many times on highway patrol use, sometimes performing stops.

To top it off, it has a red cherry on top, and a rotating ornament on the trunk.

It makes criminals shake in terror and never want to outrun justice ever again!

Los Angles Sheriff’s Department is testing 17 Mini Cooper (electric) for BMW. For many situations the small size is very practical and stylish as well. The interior space is much larger than expected and they handle very well. They are relativly inexpensive and if the back seats are flipped down there is plenty of stowing space. Other that that they look cool!

Runner-up? The Chevrolet Camaro SS 2010 Police Car. I love American-made muscle.
