Tokyo Is Surprisingly Getting Three Badass New Cop Cars

Police

Thanks to a nice contribution from Nismo.

Americans are typically used to seeing police drive around in Ford Crown Vics, Interceptors, Dodge Chargers and Chevy Impalas. By contrast, a few lucky Italian police officers get to drive a Lamborghini Huracan. The Dubai police? Well, we’ve long known they get access to some ridiculously cool cop supercars and other exotics. But what about, say, Japanese cops? After all, Japan is home to the likes of the Nissan GT-R. Well, would a 370Z Nismo work? Definitely.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Police has just received three Nissan 370Z Nismos as part of an effort to promote traffic safety. Makes sense then that the cars were revealed at the Traffic Safety Family Festival. A 370-hp, rear-wheel-drive, Nismo-tuned cop car? Tokyo police officers are going to have a lot of fun pulling people over from now on.
