But Austrian and German Polizei do use 911s. They need them. I was last over in Germany in October. The old rental car I tried to wind up, maxing out at 240kph, but still being overtaken :shock:
I remember that the Avis garage at Hamburg being full of black Porsches.....all with Avis tags.
Some British police forces have a few fast cars, in addition to the usual Fords, Vauxhaills, BMWs. The PSNI (Northern Ireland) had a few grey import Mitsi Galant VR4s. Met Police run some Imprezas, and the odd force will have Mitsi Evos.
Cool old Police car:
Last time I was on the Isle of Man, the local fuzz had Type R Accords; essentially Accords with a S-2000 engine.
The Honda Accord Type-R was produced from 1998 ? 2003 with a naturally aspirated H22A7 that produced 212 bhp @ 7200 rpm, in addition to the standard Type R modifications - Recaro seats, a limited-slip-differential, independent double-wishbone suspension, etc. This Type-R was only ever produced for the European (UKDM/EUDM)market, with the bulk being sold in the UK. All Accord Type-R's, whether for UK or EU markets, were produced at Honda's Swindon factory. 0-60 mph in under 7 secs, with 142mph top speed.
For the Asian market exists a different model, the Euro-R, which has significant variations from the UKDM/EUDM version.
