Oettinger Built This One-Off VW Golf 400R Police Car

Arguably more than most countries, the police in Germany need pursuit vehicles capable of chasing down monstrously fast and powerful vehicles down unrestricted stretches of autobahn. The trouble is that it doesn’t have the budget to buy fleets of Porsche 911s and Mercedes-AMG GTs. So what to do?

Here’s Oettinger’s answer. It’s a one-of-a-kind Volkswagen Golf R that was unveiled a few weeks back at the Essen Motor Show, decked out in police livery with special equipment.

That includes the flashing lights on the roof and in the air dam, and a foil wrap in blue, white, and neon yellow, emblazoned with the word “Polizei.”

It also includes a full aero kit, complete with front sp;itter, side skirts, rear apron, and roof spoiler. The hood is custom as well, there’s a four-pipe exhaust system with 90-mm tailpipes, and the whole thing rides on a set of 20-inch alloys wrapped in low-profile Hanhook rubber.

The real long arm of the law in this case, though, is what you can’t see: Oettinger has tuned the 2.0-liter turbo four from the standard 310 horsepower to a more prodigious 400, giving it a 0-62 time of 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 180 mph.

That’s mighty fast – for a Golf especially – but don’t expect to see one of these patrolling the autobahn anytime soon. The concept car was created as part of the Tune It! Safe! campaign, supported by the federal transport ministry and by industry members.
