The search for the perfect police car has been a seemingly everlasting and ever evolving ordeal. But the common principle remains the same. Departments need some mix of performance, affordability, and normalcy to a car. The exception to this is maybe the Dubai national police force, which sports a fleet of European sports cars, including several Lamborghinis and a Bugatti Veyron.
The Australian Federal Police force decided it was time for an upgrade of its existing fleet but made a seemingly unlikely choice- the Volvo S60 Polestar. It is unclear how many and for what specific purpose the Aussies will adapt the S60 Polsetar, but we do have word that they will begin to implement the car into service in the Australian Capitol Territory immediately.
With all-wheel drive and 329 horsepower, the S60 Polestar will deliver a good mix of performance and inconspicuousness. An Australian Federal Police official commented on the addition to its fleet,
“By doing this, we can obtain direct feedback on how the S60 performs from our officers who are out on the road, day and night, in all manner of driving conditions. We are particularly interested in our officers’ opinions on the all-wheel-drive capability of the S60 and what advantages it offers over our current rear-wheel-drive fleet.”
