police cars
Some of these
car brands
used by the police match the type you could only see in top-speed car review shows. And with the booming
electric vehicle
rush, it is only a matter of time before we start seeing police with electric cars. 
Here are four of the fastest police vehicles globally and how they are used.
In some places in the United States and around the world, law enforcement agencies have revolutionized the use of their vehicles.

Bugatti Veyron: The fastest police car

The Bugatti Veyron is currently the fastest police car, according to
. It features a powerful 8.0L V16 engine that delivers stump-pulling 1,200 horsepower that can take it from 0-60 mph in only 2.46 seconds. The vehicle's motor is designed with 64 valves and four  turbochargers that guarantee a top speed of 253 mph.
It's used by police in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), particularly in Dubai. Major Sultan Al Marri of the city's General Department of Transport & Rescue said that the department doesn't invest in the Bugatti Veyron to “show off,” but to portray police friendliness to tourists. Equipping police with such
high-end car brands
enhances the connection between law enforcement and visitors.

Tuner Z06 Corvette: Not for high-speed pursuits

The Euro-Tuned Chevy Corvette Z06 ranks among the police cars with the
highest speeds
as indicated by Autoweek. It is used in New Braunfels,
The track car comes with a 6.2L supercharged V8 engine that cranks up an impressive 759 horsepower and 729 lb. ft. of torque. However, the New Braunfels Police Department (NBPD) upgraded their Z06 Corvette, which boosted the engine output to 1,005 horsepower and 228 mph.
The NBPD confirmed that the car is not used for high-speed pursuits. Instead, the department uses it for community outreach during various events, such as school functions, local parades, and National Night Out. 

Lamborghini Huracan: The police car of Rome

Another high-speed police car, the Lamborghini Huracan was specifically designed for the police department in Rome, Italy. It's the successor of the Lamborghini Gallardo, and for the right reasons. 
The rear-drive vehicle comes with impressive performance credentials. Its naturally aspirated 5.2L V-10 engine offers 602 horsepower, and an acceleration power comes close to the Bugatti Veyron. In just 2.50 seconds, the vehicle can accelerate from zero to 60 mph. 
According to
, the Italian Highway Patrol in Rome acquired the Lamborghini Huracan for use in high-speed pursuits of speeding drivers. It's also deployed in areas that require urgent police attention or supply of materials. In November 2020, police used the car to deliver a donor kidney to a hospital 300 miles away in less than two hours. 

Nissan GT-R: For highway patrol in Japan

The Nissan GT-R is the preferred police car by the police department in the Tochigi Prefecture, Japan. Primarily meant for highway patrol, its acquisition came as bad news to a car owner with a driving record and high-speed drivers because it will match their cars.
Nicknamed Godzilla, the newly released Nissan GT-R packs a standard twin-turbo 3.8L engine with an excellent output of 600 horsepower. Its impressive performance enables it to travel from zero to 60 mph in 2.90 seconds. Couple that with its six-speed automatic transmission and its tenacious handling, and it makes a reliable highway-patrol car in a country with drivers with affinities for
