RECENTLY WE HAD a look at the Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer that some British bobbies will soon be replacing their tired old Astras with, and that probably got a few Aussie cops jealous enough as it is.
Now though comes news that Jaguar is launching its own police package, in the shape of the Jaguar XF Diesel S, for the consideration of the UK police.
Developing 205kW from its 3.0 litre twin-turbo diesel V6 (no torque figure seems to have been disclosed), the coppers will find themselves hauling to 100km/h in almost bang-on six seconds.
"The Police Officers driving pursuit vehicles demand a very high level of performance and handling, as well as safety and comfort," said Geoff Cousins, UK Managing Director for Jaguar Cars.
As you'd expect, the special Jag features all the usual fuzz-spec trimmings, including a roof-mounted light bar, side alley lights, and flashing lights in the grille.
Inside, the XF Diesel S carries the usual assortment of electronics, including radio, computer, emergency light kit, and donut tray (we couldn't confirm that last one).
