Take a look at these impressive law enforcement vehicles from various corners of the world, showcasing how police forces are elevating their style and functionality.

Japan Lexus

Lexus LC500 - Japan

The Tochigi Prefectural Police in Japan have added a stylish Lexus LC500 coupe to their fleet, courtesy of a donation from Lexus executive Kazuo Nakamura. Decked out in a black and white police uniform with red emergency lights, this V-8 powered super-coupe has joined the Mobile Traffic Unit to chase down speeders and wrongdoers, making the streets of Tochigi safer and adding a touch of manga-inspired flair to law enforcement.

Lykan Hyper Sport

Lykan HyperSport - Abu Dhabi

In mid-2015, Abu Dhabi's police added a rare and super expensive car to their fleet: the Lykan HyperSport. Built by W Motors between 2013 and 2017, this $4.9 million AUD car is one of only seven in the world. It's powered by a 3.7-liter twin-turbo engine, goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, and reaches speeds up to 390 km/h. With 750 horsepower, it's not only incredibly cool looking but also fast and very exclusive.

Aston Martin Dubai

Aston Martin One-77 - Dubai

The Dubai Police Force added the Aston Martin One-77, a rare and luxurious supercar costing around AUD 2.8 million, to their fleet in mid-2013. This car, one of only 77 ever made, boasts a handmade aluminum body, a carbon-fiber chassis, and a powerful 7.3-liter V-12 engine. Known for its high price and exclusivity, the One-77 is part of Dubai's impressive line-up of police vehicles, which also includes models like the Lamborghini Aventador and Mercedes G63. So, if you're in Dubai, it's wise to avoid speeding!

Italian lamborgini

Lamborghini Huracán - Italy

Lamborghini's partnership with the Italian police spans over two decades, with the iconic Huracan LP610-4 serving as the centrepiece since 2017. Valued at approximately AUD 465,000, these high-performance vehicles have been customized to facilitate emergency medical transport, including the swift delivery of organs and blood to hospitals across Italy. With a specialized training program required for officers to operate these supercars, the Huracan represents a blend of luxury and functionality, featuring custom equipment for life-saving missions. Lamborghini's donation of a second Huracan further underscores its commitment to supporting the country's Highway Patrol, ensuring efficient law enforcement and critical healthcare logistics.

Lotus UK

Lotus Evora S - UK

Lotus donated a police-themed Evora S to several police departments in England, including Norfolk, Sussex, Essex, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, and Cambridgeshire. The purpose is to use the car's appeal to younger drivers to promote road safety messages like avoiding speeding, drunk driving, not wearing seatbelts, or using phones while driving. The hope is that using a sporty car like the Evora S will make these messages more engaging to young people and also give the police a cooler image.
