In Italy Police Drive Six-Speed Alfa Romeo M3 Killers

Police

This is one cop car we wouldn't mind riding in.

When it comes to police motor pools, you’d expect the cops in Italy to have the pick of the litter. And they do. The country’s state police have a Lamborghini Huracan! Now the Carabinieri—a force with both police and military functions—has the Alfa Romeo Giulia QV. The Giulia QV is covered in the Carabinieri’s livery and is completely stock save for its police doo-dads. Yes, Alfa Romeo’s 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 is more than enough engine for police duty. We’ll count that as the car’s first positive review.

Inside, there are a few more noticeable changes, mostly police essentials like a radio and what looks to be a door mount for a police baton. Perhaps the coolest part of the interior is the three pedals in front of the driver’s seat and the stick in the center console. Yup, this cop car is a manual. However, like most go-fast police cars it won’t be used for chasing down bad guys or nabbing speeders. CarScoops says it’ll be used as a rapid response vehicle and for emergency medical services. What’s more is that the only Carabinieri who can drive it are those that passed a special course run by Alfa Romeo drivers. Just because you’re a cop doesn’t mean you can safely guide 503 horsepower around Italy’s teeny tiny streets!
