We'd Love To Get Pulled Over By This C8 Corvette Cop Car

Sports Cars / Comments

It already exists (virtually).

Police departments throughout the world often like to have their so-called halo cars. In Italy, they have been privileged enough to acquire a Lamborghini Huracan for both promotional and service needs. Meanwhile in Dubai, the police have become famous for its seemingly growing fleet of supercars. Even in the US, there's the occasional Ford Mustang with a set of rollers on its roof. So, what all-American sports car/muscle car could come next? Perhaps the new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.

These new renderings created by graphic artist Aksyonov Nikita, via Behance, show a possible future involving a C8 Corvette Police Interceptor. Some familiar must-have police modifications are obvious, such as the light bar, spotlight, and bigger steel wheels. We gotta admit, the C8 does look good here.

Nikita claimed he began with the Stingray Coupe with the Z51 performance package and then added the aforementioned features along with police graphics running across the entire side of the coupe. Additional "Protect and Serve" and "911" stickers are also visible.

If a police department sought to obtain a C8, we highly doubt they'd change anything regarding the naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8 with a total of 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. After all, a stock C8 can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds, putting it on par with the likes of the Nissan GT-R and Acura NSX. Not bad for a car that can begin at $60,000.

If America's Finest isn't interested in a C8 then, perhaps, one of their German counterparts will be instead. A few years ago, the German Federal Ministry of Transport commissioned a one-off C7 Corvette tuned for law enforcement. Some of its features included a carbon fiber body kit, a Hella police lighting package, and upgraded 19- and 20-inch forged alloy wheels. Not surprisingly, the V8 with 459 hp and 464 lb-ft was left stock.

Given that C8 production recently halted (again) due to a supply shortage, we doubt GM would allocate even one car for police duty at this time. But never say never.
