The World’s Finest Police Cars

The World’s Finest Police Cars


#1. Germany: Brabus CLS Rocket

With 730hp from a twin-turbo V12 and a top-speed of 225.19mph, the Brabus CLS Rocket is currently the world’s fastest legal sedan.



#2. Germany: Porsche 911 Carrera

The Porsche 911 Carrera S has been extensively modified by TechArt for its role as a police car. With a 6 cylinder engine and 500hp it’s capable of over 186 mph and sprinting to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds.


#3. Austria: Porsche 911

A £65,000 supercar that can do up to 177mph for the Austrian Police


Italy: Lamborghini Gallardo


Lamborghini donated one of these beauties to the Italian Police back in 2004. They probably liked it as they purchased another one a year later for around $166,000. Top speed: 190mph. Powered by a 5 liter V10 with 500hp.



USA: Dodge Magnum

Michigan Police acquired an entire Magnum fleet (they could be used as rams by their looks)



UK: Lamborghini Gallardo

Similar to the Italian Police Gallardo, just with a crappy paint job



Ferrari FF (UAE) 

If there’s one thing you can take away from this list, it’s that you shouldn’t mess with the Dubai Police Department. This all-wheel drive Ferrari FF was modified specifically for Dubai’s boys in blue (or green and beige, actually), and can hit searing speeds of 208 miles per hour, and jump to 60 in just 3.7 seconds. The FF may be one of many, many supercars used by the Dubai PD, but this is the only one driven exclusively by female officers. It was added to the Dubai PD’s fleet in the spring of 2013, and adds even more teeth to the police’s supercar supply.



 Bugatti Veyron (UAE) – 2.5 seconds; 268 mph

The Dubai Police decided that what they already had in stock just wasn’t enough, so they decided to go and get themselves the second-fastest car in the world, the Bugatti Veyron. While the Dubai police could overtake almost everything on the road, they apparently need a car that take down anything. Capable of speeds up to 268 miles per hour and hitting 60 miles per hour from zero in just 2.5 seconds, there’s no way anything can get out of the Veyron’s grasp – unless a Hennessey Venom GT shows up. It set the police department back a cool $1.6 million, but hey, it’s Dubai!


South Africa: Lamborghini Gallardo

Yet another Gallardo with a better paint job than the British version. The nearly $200,000 car was loaned to the authorities by a local Lamborghini importer to use it as an “attention-getting device” to control traffic.


UK police Caparo T1

Another ‘safety-message’ stunt saw this Caparo T1 liveried up as a police car. But just imagine if it really was a police pursuit vehicle. Assuming it didn’t become on fire, you’d have NO chance of escaping.


Australian police HSV GTS

This HSV is a tyre-shredding, police-liveried loon, delivered to the officers of the New South Wales police department, and funded by the NSW Centre for Road Safety. Though - as with many of the cars on this list - it’s more of a ‘message car’ than an actual highway patrol/pursuit vehicle. Though if you see it on the road, don’t be mistaken: there are still REAL POLICE OFFICERS hiding it inside, who won’t hesitate to floor it if you break the law…


 


Canada – Jaguar S Type

Jaguar is a generally underestimated car and is mis-perceived by many around the world as being a more luxurious type of car, fit for the average day to day businessmen. The RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) found a great deal of potential in the Jaguar S as it’s another species of Jaguar on its own come to think about it, due to boasting that 3.0 Liter fuel injected V6 under the hood which spells an exceptional amount of power which cab push around 238 Horse Power and will sure come in handy when dealing with those petty usual day to day pull overs. Luckily for Canada though, car chases of extreme kinds happen very seldom. This is among the best police cars and is somewhat ideal in this case as nobody would want to smash a beautifully crafted Lamborghini police car and loose its stallion shape to a regular day to day bumper car accident so a Jaguar would be fit take the repairable damage in most cases. Jaguar sure does live up to its name as the wild cat badge mounted on the bonnet wood suggest as this is definitely a car that’s built for the chase.

10 Bloodiest Battles of World War II

10. Battle of Monte Cassino, 17 January–18 May 1944: 185,000 casualtiesWaged between the Allies and the joint German and Italian troops in the early part of 1944, the Battle of Monte Cassino was one of the hardest fought battles of the Second World War. The main objective for the Allied forces fighting their way up from Southern Italy was to break through the Germans’ Gustav Line — a series of military fortifications running across Italy — and gain control of Rome. Named after the 1,400-year-old monastery of Monte Cassino that stood at the center of the German defensive line (and which was controversially destroyed by American bombers during the battle), the fighting was made up of four smaller battles that took place in January, February, March and May, respectively. The eventual capture of Rome came at a high price, with at least 125,000 casualties on all sides — and as many as 185,000 by some estimates.

Propaganda posters

I WANT YOU!

Originally published as the cover for the July 6, 1916, issue of Leslie’s Weekly with the title “What Are You Doing for Preparedness?” this portrait of “Uncle Sam” went on to become–according to its creator, James Montgomery Flagg–”the most famous poster in the world.” Over four million copies were printed between 1917 and 1918, as the United States entered World War I and began sending troops and material into war zones.



We Can Do It! 

We Can Do It! is a WW II era American wartime propoganda poster produced by J. Howard Miller in 1943 for Westinghouse Electric as a tool to boost worker morale. Surprisingly, the poster did not enjoy wide popularity during World War II. It was rediscovered in the early 1980s and widely reproduced in many forms, often called “We Can Do It!” but also mistakenly called “Rosie the Riveter” after the iconic figure of a strong female war production worker. The “We Can Do It!” image was used to promote feminism and other political issue…
