Stealthy BMW 3-Series Police Car Headlines Company’s RETTmobil Lineup

BMW has announced plans to introduce an assortment of emergency vehicles at RETTmobil 2019.

The star of this year’s show is a “stealth” police car based on the all-new 3-Series.

As the name suggests, the car looks fairly ordinary as it has hidden flashers in the grille and a “magnetic flashing light” that can be removed from the roof. Even the controls for the lights and siren are hidden in what appears to be an ashtray.

While most police cars wouldn’t be considered luxurious, this model comes nicely equipped with heated sports seats, a leather-wrapped M steering wheel and the Professional business package. The car also has LED headlights, Park Distance Control and Driving Assistant.

In terms of performance, the model is equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel engine that produces 187 hp (140 kW / 190 PS) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which sends power to an all-wheel drive system. This allows the sedan to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 6.9 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 145 mph (233 km/h).

Besides the 3-Series, BMW will showcase a 2-Series Gran Tourer for emergency medics. Dressed in an orange and white livery, the MPV has an emergency light bar and flashing lights in the grille.

Since the model is based on the 220d xDrive Gran Tourer, it shares the same powertrain as the aforementioned 3-Series. However, it’s significantly slower as the dash from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) takes 7.8 seconds and the top speed is 135 mph (218 km/h).

On the crossover side, BMW will showcase an X1 fire command vehicle. It features many of the same modifications as the 2-Series Gran Tourer, but adopts a red and white livery.

Based on the X1 xDrive18d, the model has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel engine with 148 hp (110 kW / 150 PS) and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque. Thanks to an eight-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system, the crossover can run from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in approximately 9.3 seconds before topping out at around 127 mph (205 km/h).
