American patrol cars aren't much to brag about I believe they only really get suspension mods.

Though, every now and again you see something pretty sweet, like a marked Camaro, or even a vette with the sirens n police decals @.@

In the North of England they had a Lotus police car for a bit

Now they just have BMW's, Volvos and Subaru Imprezza's for high speed pursuits

They've used Crown Victorias here for like the past 15 to 20 years. Not too fast. They've got about 220 horsepower at the crank of a 4000+ pound car. I've gotten away from the cops on many occasions. But recently they've been getting replaced. By...... *gasp* Dodge Charger R/T's

340 hp, 390 torque, 0 to 60 in 5.7 seconds. I would NOT wanna mess with that.

Dom, thats not entierly correct.

The option to terminte depends of many factors. Its includes, but is not limited to road conditions, police driver experiance, original offence, traffic conditions.

I have seen pursuits reach speeds in excess of 200+ kph and not be terminated.

Well on one occasion I was racing against my cousin down an empty street going... insanely fast, and we blew by a cop. He turned his siren on and floored it after us. By the time he was anywhere near, we both disappeared. The R/T would have been up my ass in 2 seconds.

Yes, yes, I was an idiot, I know. I probably deserve the bashing I'm about to get. Commence people!
