    Why in the world would you want a cop car with a diesel engine? Great for low end torque, but not exactly a top end flyer. Guess they don't mind criminals getting away. Not to mention the exhaust emissions of one.

    no joke...that thing hardly implies "serve and protect." That thing looks like the cop car from Transformers. That cop car says "I'm coming to fuck you up."

    I like it.

    Just not if it's coming after me.

    With all the emission regulations for diesel engines, this thing will burn cleaner than a regular gas-burning motor. Not to mention, if set up properly, will toast most cars out there. Depends on what the overall horsepower will be, and size of motor.

    Another plus is that you can go further between fill-up's with a diesel engine, as opposed to a regular gas burning cruiser.

    Most cruisers average 10-16 mpg. I would venture you'll see 22-30 mpg with this thing. Mind you, that's based on me driving a diesel engine that get's about 7-8 mpg, but I'm hauliong 40,000 pound regularly. And according to the website, they're looking at an operation span of 250,000 miles. Most cruisers will put on 70-90,000 miles in a year, that's roughly a three year trade cycle. This mileage estimate will put it closer to 5-6 years.

    With the money saved in fuel costs and not having to trade as often, it might be a tad spendy at first, but the long term pay off is worth looking at. Especially for cash-strapped states like California & Texas.

    If I were still doing LE work, I'd love to take one for a spin and see what it has to offer.

    Imagine this fuckin thing sneaking up behind you. Suddenly, an irresistable urge to look in your rearview mirror hits. You look, and you see this thing in it.




    And after getting pulled over, two rather large, imposing figures get out of it.




    Pardon me Trooper, I have to go clean my shorts out.

    Aside from that, still shots of that thing parked and keys in some dude's pocket, make that car look like it's going 90.

    I told my dad, a retired Illinois trooper, about this beast. He said it sounded interesting. So he went to my brother's house to take a look at the website. He wants to beg for a chane to come out of retirement at 67, just to drive this thing for a one week tour of duty.

    He said it's EXACTLY what the LE community has been trying to get Detroit to build for years. Finally, someone has.

    He says it may take a couple years, like with the Impala & Charger. But he thinks if it lives up to the hype, The Big 3 will be tucking tail and running scared.

    I could see a partnership, but, with Carbon Motors being so new, I think The Big 3 will wait to see if it sinks or swims. My dad thinks that this thing is going to catch on like wildfire, and leave Fordm Chevy & Dodge in it's dust.

    So far, most of the state police agencies are going to test at least 5 of them. Indiana is going with 100, if I read correctly. Being that it's based in Idiana, I wouldn't doubt it.

    When it comes to LE things, I have yet to see him be wrong about these types of items.

    I must say, I'm impressed after reading the specs on this thing. Hard to imagine a diesel powered car that's able to reach 150 mph. AND get 28/30 mpg. It's got considerably more horsepower than other cop cars too. You expect that with a diesel though. Larger disc brakes is a definite plus too. And all those extras they gave this car that others just don't have. I am wondering if you know what "forced induction" is with diesels? That implies being supercharged if not mistaken. I've also never heard of "ultra low sulphur" diesel. Is that something not ordinarily sold to the masses? I'm not familiar with the term I guess.

    the specs

    most diesels run turbos, not superchargers.

    i think ultra low sulphur is the "new" diesel fuel formula.
