Forget police Lambos and Ferraris, this is the real deal!
This is Ford’s latest blue-light vehicle, a 105mph (169 kph) AWD Ford Ranger Raptor, which is being trialled across the UK by its police forces.
With its Fox shock absorbers and Baja desert race mode as standard, it has more than enough to keep up with anyone making a getaway across gravel, mud and sand.
South Wales Police are among the first to trial the Ranger Raptor pick-up, which is capable of travelling off road almost as quickly as on it. This may prove to be the perfect tool to access some of the UK’s most rural locations.
And Ford says that there’s no point trying to outsmart the police on-road, either, as evaluations of a 155mph (nearly 250 kph) Ford Focus ST estate are underway, too.
Both are the product of Ford’s Special Vehicle Preparation team in the UK, which has added full police livery with all-round emergency lights and sirens.
Let me know in the comments below what car you'd use to try evade the police Ranger Raptor in an on/off-road chase?
