Robocop’s Car

Posted in The Job - General by 200

I remember back in the eighties a police car demonstrator being loaned to us for trial. I think it was a Peugeot or it could have been a Renault. The company were thinking of designing a purpose-built police car but the go ahead was dependent on a large majority of the UK forces placing orders. I can’t remember the specs of the car other than it had a perspex shield between the passenger & driver compartments & the rear section was a solid hard plastic bucket seat affair where prisoners could be held safely.

Naturaly, nobody could agree to show any interest so the project failed. Other than perhaps uprating the brakes or electric system to cope with all the extra lighting equipment, we don’t have any specifically police designed vehicles.

So, anyone fancy a Carbon E7? This American company is on a mission to sell an eco-friendly purpose-built police car.

    Ha, If it were made by Pugrot, it would fall to bits if someone kicked the thing.

    Not sure about a purpose built police car. I don’t think you could, it would be too limited. It would be useless off road, or it would handle like a blancmange on steroids, or it will be too big/little……
