• South Korean police brings in Ferrari, Porsche and Lamborghini patrol cars

The next time you find yourself driving a car in South Korea, you might want to think twice about breaking any speed limits unless you want these guys on your tail.

Needless to say, the South Korean patrol cars are not your everyday Kia Rios or Hyundai Getzs. By our tally, that’s a Ferrari 360, a Porsche 911, and a Lamborghini Gallardo all serving as patrol cars for South Korea’s police department.

If you’re picturing a car chase, you’re probably thinking that the scenario would be the other way around. Supercar gets jacked and standard patrol cars give chase. Well, in Korea, the shoe is in the proverbial other foot and trying to engage these cars in a good old police chase is as dumb an idea as drinking milk on Fat Tuesday.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

They probably got it from the tax payers money Peter. That is one of the things that angers me as well. It is kinda sick to know that with that much money, infrastructures like schools and libraries and hospital can be built, homeless fed, and they spent it on thousand dollar cars that has no actual purpose at all except to show off. Well, they will not really use those cars in high speed chases, they would use it to patrol and display themselves. Maintenance of such cars is not that cheap as well and they burn fuel, where are they gonna get the money to burn for that? O let me guess, the tax payers are rich and so are they.

I believe the reason they even have these police cars is to show off to everyone else. "Ohh, look at us! We have really cool cars for our police! What a GREAT country this is!"
I’m not saying it’s not, but you get my drift. BTW, did they run out of funding when they got the siren lights? Those things are HUGE!

The question that always comes into my mind when seeing cool and hot police cars is that where did they get the money to buy such expensive cars? If these are bought using tax-payers money then it is not a good buy. If I was a citizen I’d probably protest about it. Why would a police department have a fuel burning car? I mean I doubt it that they would use this for chases as the repairs for such cars are not the same as the price of the repair of those regular, cheaper and gives more mileage cars.
