Typically, police cars are all about speed and handling, but sometimes that’s just not enough. To catch criminals in fast cars, policemen need even faster vehicles. And not all of them are cars. Sometimes, very unusual machines are used to capture the lawbreakers.
Here are 7 world’s strangest police vehicles!
1. Police Tractor
As you would imagine, this vehicle is not used in police pursuits. Because with the max speed of 25 mph you could only catch a few drunkards running away on foot. But where it lacks in speed, it makes up for in power and utility.
2. Bugatti Veyron
Unlike the tractor, Bugatti Veyron has no problem with fast chases. Its speed peaks at 250 mph, which is more than enough to catch any and all criminals. There’s just one catch – the price. It costs a whopping $1.7 million, but the Dubai police can afford it.
3. Gibbs QuadSki
And we’re in Dubai again but this time let’s look at the amphibious ATV – QuadSki. This baby will allow you to go up to 45 mph on land or 38.9 knots on open water. It’s the same speed, by the way. For $40,000 this ATV is a steal!
You read that right – hoverbikes! And what better place to use them than Dubai? Made by “Hoversurf” these electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicles, or eVTOLs for short, are said to resolve a lot of transportation problems. This baby can go up 15 ft at 60 mph you don’t need in to go higher.
5. Kalashnikov Shield
What you see is what you’ll get. It’s a bulletproof 24-foot-long wall on wheels, equipped with a water cannon, tiny windows for guns, and on the very top, there’s a high-definition camera. You really don’t want to be on the wrong side of this beast.
This miniature unmanned vehicles manufactured by OTSAW Digital are used by the Dubai police service. The O-R3 is equipped with a biometric ID system and a scanner. This weirdo is able to identify wanted criminals and other persons of interest. The future is nigh!
7. Pedal Car
I bet you didn’t expect to see a man-powered vehicle on this list. The Hampshire Constabulary decided to get rid of the air-polluting cars in favor of this over-complicated bicycle that can go at a blazing speed of 20 mph. Watch out, slow runners, the Hampshire PD is on your tail!
