I picked up a recent issue of Motor Trend (nothing better to read at the doctor's office) & found an interesting bit about
a new car company, Carbon Motors Corporation. If all works out they'll soon be all over the US but you won't be able
to buy one. They're police only & not available to the general public. This is so (theoretically) no one can use one to
impersonate a police officer.

They are to be delivered turn-key w/ all police equipment already installed & ready for immediate service. Features
include full 360' video surveillance, back seat monitoring, "easy clean" interior & built in computer complete w/ touch
screen built into the dash. As planned they will be sold under a contract to return them to Carbon Motors for refurb
or recycling. They're are also designed for ergonomics & to withstand a rear-end collision of 75 MPH.

If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it's meant to be.

If not, point & laugh when it flies into a woodchipper.

That thing would look better upside down in the middle of the street.

Yeah, I'm new here. Don't piss me off and we'll be fine. :D

Aw, my first post. You may call it "arrogant". I prefer "foreshadowing".

Haha, yeah. I'm sure it's pretty quick. Honestly, the only thing that looks aerodynamic on it is the low rise roof. Front just.. doesn't look like it'd flow that well at all.

Nothing official yet, but according to MT's article it suspected they'll use a twin turbo 3.0 BMW I6 & 6-speed automatic.

The front reminds me of the new Camero, just smaller. Sorta dumb idea, because people will be confused which cars are and aren't cops, and anybody can just get a car and put a siren, lights a paint on it. I know somebody who did a police conversion on a Corvette and he pretend-busts street racers to scare them.

That's funny until the real cops show up, then it's hilarious.

Actually looks cool. Pity about the fact Aussie cops have V8's under the hoods, and Americans are BUYING CHINESE SHIT!!!!
Well, maybye the "Pure Justice" is related to George Bushe's shoe throwing?

BTW These things choke out loads of Carbon Dioxide, hence "Carbon Motors".

PS: It does go 0-100 KPH (0-60 for you wanking yanks) in 6.5 seconds, in Oz the Holden Commodore SSV outfitted for Highway Patrol use by NSW police goes to the magic mark in 4.8 seconds due to a computer chip, stock version does it in 5.1 seconds.

Except for the Malibu, all have nice big brawny V8s. :D

Yeah. They do all have nice Brawny V8s: Of a piss weak 4.0 liter capacity, and over here our cops have a mixture of 4.0 V6 and 5.4 V8 in the Ford Falcon, and 3.7 V6 and 6 liter V8 in Holden Commodore. Crown Vics handle really badly, while our cop cars can stop on a 50 cent!! Literaly, it can run over 50 cent, unlike those US cops who have a law not to Run over 50 cent. The Chinaman Chinacar actually looks sexy, pity it has no V8 in it and pollutes like hell.
