• Caparo T1 Police Car

The bad boys are now in big trouble as Caparo has just unveiled a 200 mph police car! The Met Police has a teamed up with Brit supercar manufacturer, Caparo, to conceive a brand new Rapid Response Vehicle (RRV) for the future – on show at MPH ’07 this weekend.

Capable of accelerating from a Police lay-by to 100mph in just 5 seconds and onto a top speed of 200mph, the Caparo T1 RRV would be deployed to hunt down car criminals within the M25.

Like everything else in the Met Police’s armoury, this bespoke RRV is intended as a deterrent. Just check your mirrors next time you fancy breaking the speed limit!

anyway point is it can’t stop a car with a weight of 3000lbs or more.....they better use a spike strip

i think its great an all that they can finally catch sumone who is doin well over 180 in a high speed chase but catchin them is one thing stoppin the perks is another an this car jus doesn’t have that sort of potential....its obvious it weighs less than a ton so how could a car that is made of such light weight material stop a car lets say like a mustang if i cop tried to pull me over an was attempting to bump me off the road wit this lil kit car i was jus swing into them an send them off the road....kinda dumb idea to have it on the force
