Police cars have been a regular sight on the road ever since the first cars went on sale, and in that time they've evolved from modified versions of regular cars to their own bespoke models.

Ford recently rolled out the new version of its Police Interceptor in America. The imposing SUV comes with flashing red and blue lights built into the bodywork and windscreen, a new instrument panel and a bespoke electrical system to manage all of the equipment officers need.
