Cop-Spec BMW M3 Competition Will End The War On Speeding

Sports Cars / Comments

Who says cop cars can't be cool?

In a world where the average sporty SUV can hit 60 mph in under six seconds, Police are struggling to keep up with perps. In Europe, it's the norm to see a few supercars dressed up in cop uniforms, and countries such as Germany regularly employ the services of the Porsche 911 to track down speeding motorists. In Australia, speedsters won't get too far, as the Australian Police Force owns a fleet of Kia Stinger GT sedans that are capable of sub-5-second 0-60 mph sprint times, and even drive a few Tesla Model X Long Range vehicles capable of going even quicker, but what if the Aussie cops have to go up against something that's capable of high speeds and can outhandle most cars through the corners? Introducing the latest addition to the Victoria Police force, the BMW M3 Competition Highway Patrol vehicle.

This isn't the first fast BMW in the Victoria Police force; 2018 saw the introduction of a fleet of BMW 5 Series vehicles, mostly in diesel configuration, and in 2019 things got really serious when the mighty BMW M5 went on an evaluation period. The latest M car to join the ranks is a serious one: the 2021 BMW M3 Competition takes the standard M3 and sharpens it even further for an insane driving experience. Under the police-striped hood lies a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine producing a monumental 503 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed M Steptronic automatic transmission, and the 60 mph mark comes up in only 3.8 seconds.

The lucky police officers that get to drive this badass ride will get to enjoy standard luxury features such as Parking Assistant Plus with a surround-view camera system, traffic sign recognition, Front Collision Warning and Lane Departure Warning. Additionally, the M3 Comp comes with Active Cruise Control with Stop and Go function, Side Collision Warning, and Evasion Aid Crossroads. Good luck getting away from this pig in wolf's clothing.
