Car Crime Census 2013: Top 10 Strange police cars

The police forces of the UK tend to pick out pretty mundane vehicles. In towns the ‘panda’ cars tend to be dull-but-worthy, like the Hyundai i30, Vauxhall Astra and Ford Focus. Head out onto the motorway and you’ll find bigger cars like Volvo V70s, BMW 5 Series and the occasional Audi A4 Avant.

But occasionally, as part of a trial or a PR stunt, police forces will bring out some oddities – although quite how practical or sensible they are is dubious. We’ve got ten of the strangest below.

Caparo T1

Caparo worked with the Metropolitan Police to produce the ‘RRV’ rapid response vehicle. Not many criminals would be able to outpace the T1 – it has active downforce systems like an F1 car and despite being a featherweight it has 575PS.

Unfortunately – or fortunately if you think about the expense – it never made production as a police car, though a road car was available to private buyers.
