Czech Police Have A New Weapon To Fight Crime - A Ferrari Patrol Car

Czech police have converted a Ferrari they seized from criminals into a patrol car capable of speeds of up to 200mph. The 2011 Ferrari 458 Italia’s colour has been changed from its traditional racing red to silver with yellow and blue reflective stripes and it is now kitted out with police lights. The super police car will be used by trained officers to chase down joyriders in stolen cars and to crack down on illegal road races. On the market, a similar model can cost £150,000, but the modifications cost £10,300 - roughly the same as a new Skoda hatchback. Col. Jiri Zly, director of the traffic police service says: "The vehicle will be used in a nationwide unit and we are counting on its deployment against the most aggressive pirates of Czech roads. “We can also use its potential when chasing stolen vehicles that pass through our territory to neighbouring countries”. The Ferrari only has 1,242 miles (2,000 km) on the clock, and a top speed of 2,000 km 203 m/ph (326 km/h).
