the crown vics are the most widely used cop car, at least on the east coast....and even though ive never tried it, im sure alot of cars could outrun one though, but they are built with the cooling power and heavy duty stuff to withstand high speeds for a LONG time, endurance is those cars strong points.

i know a cop personally and he said the fastest he went in his crown was 130 in pursuit of a guy going 110, he wasnt running from my friend....the cop just had to catch up....he retired before i could get him to give me a ride, or escort me on a legal high speed run

Jesus your kidding me... an evolution, old school impreza and a e46?? Damn.

Crown victorias are pretty quick cars. At least the cops. Its called the Crown Vic PIP. Police Interceptor Package. Its the 4.6 liter mustang engine, so all the mods are the same. It has stock 2" dual exhausts. Not really handling cars, the cops just have them because they are ideal for high speed long distance pursuits that are on long straight highways. I wanted a black PIP crown vic really bad. I was going to tint the windows and put some fake antennas on the back. That would be the ultimate speeding car. I mean really whos gonna pull over a cop?

Crown Vics are pieces of sh*t, plain and simple, but they are common use throughout police districts'..

I cannot believe those all are road patrols in the UK..maybe 1 or 2 to each district..like in NY, state troopers have 1 '00 Camaro assigned to each post..

i dont believe ive ever seen a camero state trooper, i got pulled over by a mustang cause i was crusiing behind it, figuring his dectortor was going over, then i downshifted, and flew by him, only to have him light me up, never saw it comming, that bastard....
