With a top speed of 207mph and a price tag of £240,000 it is not your average police car. The McLaren 12C that has a 0-60 time of 3 seconds will be unveiled at a Birmingham Motorshow with the aim of breaking down barriers between the police and drivers. Speaking about the special police car PC Nairn said “Everyone who sees the McLaren wants to come and talk about it. The car breaks the ice and gives the opportunity to get across the safety message”

Powered by a 3.8 twin turbo engine with almost 600bhp is six times the power of a Ford Fiesta and has a mpg of 25 – although this is doubt full at 207mph. Although branded in police livery the supercar will not be hitting the streets of Britain anytime soon.  It is on loan from a local dealership and will be returned to its usual appearance in the near future.
