Australia’s fastest ever, $400,000 police car

THINK you can run from the police? Think again. It appears the NSW Police force has just taken delivery of the $400,000 McLaren MP4-12C supercar.
The British supercar was spotted on the back of a tow truck earlier today in Sydney wearing full police livery.
Retailing for just under $400,000 in Australia, the MP4-12C is capable of sprinting from 0-100km/h in 3.1 seconds thanks to its 459kW V8 engine.
We’re waiting to receive confirmation from the NSW Police as to whether they purchased the car, but it’s more likely it was a promotional donation from Sydney’s Trivett McLaren dealership.

In the past, the NSW Police have had an Audi RS4 and a Porsche Panamera donated to them. With these arrangements the car manufacturer foots all the costs, included servicing and registration, with the police force responsible for only the fuel.
Although, that can sometimes be troublesome. In February last year a NSW Police officer ruined the engine of a limited edition Ford FPV GT by filling it up with the wrong petrol, resulting in a $5000 repair bill.
The timing of the McLaren’s entry into the force lines up well with next month’s Bathurst 1000, the same event the Porsche Panamera was shown off at in 2012.

While the McLaren will sprint from the lights quicker than any other police car, the title of the country’s most powerful police car still lies with the one off Dick Johnson tuned Ford GT-F which the NSW Police took delivery of last year. The big supercharged V8 engine under the bonnet packs a whopping 600kW of power, 150kW more than a Ford V8 Supercar.
While the fast Ford will work as fully functional highway patrol car, it’s likely the McLaren will live its life as just a promotional tool.
