Haha, It would probably out-perform any Australian cop car... :wink:

Actually, japanese performance cars have a higher build quality than most Holden's or Fords...
I'm surprised that the Australian police force hasn't utilised AWD cars yet? Something like the AWD Magna would make a half decent cop car...

Ford and Holden are used as they are a comfortable size for members to function comfortably in. Many Japanese and other Asian built vehicles are not very big on the inside. There is no use being able to travel at warp 9.1 if you are not comfortable in the cockpit. They may be built better for the nice roads in other countires but they soon turn to a bucket of crap when on Australian rural and suburban roads.



Life ain't no race track with nice smooth bump free well cambered circuits.

For a country that makes some good looking luxury cars Japan has probably the most horrible looking police cars in the world. They badly need the services or a raphic design artist and an emergency equipment fitter. If you ever look inside them you will see a mass of wires strung all over the place leading to radios, lights and other items.

That R34 GTR would have been a good Hwy car here in' 4 door format as it's very close in size to a Commodore internally, but purchase price is no doubt the major issue.

Having driven an R33, the Skyline is much more comfy than the WRX to drive the longer you are in the saddle. Even though I like the WRX, it's most certainly a freeway car and not a country road car and for Police work isn't really suited to working 2 up, especially if the crew is 6ft+.

Based on the current Z, the new R35 is rumoured to get either a 32valve 4.5lt V8 or a 3.5lt V6 Twin Turbo engine under the bonnet. Both engines should be good for 300kw! Mmmmmm That'd be a great AWD car.

Maybe Mitsubishi will S/C or Turbo an AWD Sports Version of the 380.

Yeah the new skyline (No longer using the R series code) will be using a turbocharged V6 engine (VG series) instead of the turbo straight 6 (RB series)... Should be good...

Your correct though, price-wise it wouldn't be a viable option for Australia...
