Australia’s NSW police added an interesting item to its police inventory and this one is powered by a V8. It’s a Lexus RC in the mighty V8-powered F specification that will serve as a multi-purpose vehicle and will have an active role in roadside campaigns to promote road safety. This is not the first time we’ve seen a supercar make it to the Police fleet. The Dubai and Abu Dhabi Police force boast of the most enviable of collections and yes, all are operational and not just for display.
“The RC F will be a major help in our efforts to engage with the public at major gatherings around the state,” said Inspector Jim Fryday. “There will be further opportunities at motorsport events to communicate our message to race fans while showing off the RC F in a very appropriate setting.”
Most of the time, the RC F will be operated by the NSW Police’s Southern Region and according to Lexus Australia chief executive Peter McGregor the car will play an important role to promote safety on the roads. It’s certainly going to attract a lot of attention with its aggressive design and a throaty sound provided by the naturally-aspirated 5.0-liter V8 467-hp engine.
