A Bugatti Veyron serving as a police vehicle, like in Dubai, is just for showing off. So why don’t we focus on something much more feasible, but pretty good nonetheless?
Ladies and gentleman, meet Steeda’s take on what a police car should be. Apparently, the parts and performance firm knows pursuits are “serious business”, not an opportunity of showcasing firepower, with the sole aim of stopping the individual pursued as quickly and safely as possible.
To create what is its own idea about the ultimate blend of speed, handling and usability, Steeda built two Interceptor Mustang Concepts for Police, Special Service, and Government Operations.
Although the pictures depicting the vehicles appear to be digitally enhanced, Steeda says they can easily integrate any required components to assure the products exceed specific agency mission requirements.
“The Steeda Police Interceptors are tested and proven law enforcement vehicles that reflect the do-anything commitment of Law Enforcement Agencies”, Dario Orlando, President of Steeda Autosports, said. “We’ve selected specific components that have been extensively race & track-tested, leaving nothing to chance for law enforcement agents.”
The Mustangs can be commissioned as unmarked undercover interceptors, too, offering stealthy, discrete patrol or surveillance, as well as high-profile “black & white” variants for local patrol or highway pursuit.
Either way, under the hood Steeda has done some modifications, increasing the horsepower and torque to provide greatly enhanced acceleration, top speed, and braking capabilities. Moreover, the cars are built on their Q500 and Q750 platforms and come equipped with heavy duty suspension and powertrain components specifically designed to withstand the most severe of punishments.
