UK cops use Lexus luxury to chase crims

LEXUS IS-F POLICE 3

Here in New Zealand, our esteemed officers of the law tend to roll the streets in Australian-built Ford and Holden vehicles. However, in other parts of the world the Police are known for driving vehicles a little more intimidating. One such place to adopt this theory is the UK. Previously piloting Subaru Imprezas around, the Police in the English county of Humberside have switched recently to something a little more sinister.

Plucked flesh from the Lexus range, the Police will be tackling the streets in the new 416hp 5.0-litre V8 IS-F. As far as Sergeant Mike Peck of the Humberside Police is concerned, they couldn’t be happier. “The final product provides a most formidable package and is undoubtedly one of the most advanced police vehicles in the world which in turn enables my officers to deal with the criminals who use the roads for serious and organised crime.”

Brilliant justification Mike, but no ones buying it. Check out some cool images of the performance Police cars in the gallery below.
