    I'm guessing it's for a movie, not actual police work.

    It would have to be very few. For example a Kawasaki ZX14 will hit 100mph in just over 4 seconds. By the time the Nissan reached 60mph, the Kawasaki would be long gone.

    :motorcycle:
     

  4. Yes, bikes are amazingly fast, even Harleys but especially the Japanese bikes. Even a decked out Police Kawasaki would be hard pressed to keep up with them. A helicopter is a must!
    I Thought it was a Cannon Ball run? Never heard of a Gumball, that doesn't sound very fast. :supergrin:

    It's probably a guy who's about the size of a 12 year old. I couldn't shoehorn my 6'4" 300lb self in that thing.

    Only the ones who ride responsibly. No GT-R can keep up with a liter + sportbike ridden by a competent rider.

    There was a movie called Gumball Rally that came out in 1975. Cannonball Run came out in 81.
     
  10. Sounds like a publicity stunt by the installation company because they posted this on the comments section on Youtube

    THIS VEHICLE DOES NOT BELONG TO FAIRFAX COUNTY OR THE STATE OF VIRGINIA!!!!! YOUR TAX DOLLARS WERE NOT USED FOR THIS VEHICLE!!!!!!

    That's what crossed my mind when I saw this, too. Although, that thing DOES light up like a Christmas tree, so it'd be hard to make a case for "I didn't know he was a cop." But someone will...

    Yeah, I vote that this vehicle is more of a promotional item for the agency and company who outfitted it... not something that will actually be used for police work too often. I can't imagine what the maintenance costs would be. Having a single "pursuit vehicle" for an entire agency is fairly unrealistic anyway, since you obviously never know who/when/where a pursuit is going to happen.

    Still looks cool tho. :cool:

    Circling the wagons.
    The description seems to imply that it was built for a non-LE entity that is also not the installer.

    There was an article a while back about some FBI agents wrecking a seized Ferrari. Apparently they had taken it out on a joyride. A lot of people commented about how irresponsible that would be and it would be a better use of taxpayer funds to put the car up for auction and buy 4 or 5 REAL police cars fully equipped.

    I would say the same would be appropriate in this case, but buy 2 caprices or chargers and equip them.

    If the car is just a demo car for the light installer then well....that's their business and it's a pretty cool looking car.
