A wise man once said: “Police cars are only factory tuned. Can do better than 180k, they can’t catch you…So they don’t even try.” That man was Han Seoul-Oh from the legendary film “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.” However, it seems he spoke too soon because a Nissan R35 GT-R police car has been delivered to the Tochigi prefectural police in north Tokyo.
The car was unveiled during a ceremony in front of media, Nissan officials and prefectural police. It comes with the sirens and lights that you’d expect on any police car and that’s because it’s actually going to in future enforcement of traffic safety. When you consider the car has a powerful twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine (565 hp and 467 lb-ft of torque) and quick transmission, it’s a perfect fit for a fast police car.
Nissan also created a GT-R police car last year, but it wasn’t planned on being used in active patrol.
