This is an old news but I think it amazes me.
Yes, the local police forces are now using Lancer Evolution X as part of their fleet. 25 of these are now sitting in the police base, waiting to pounce on their prey. Apparently, some forces were also sent to Japan for drivers' training. Hmm... Impressive!
Millions spent to make sure criminals don’t escape
KUALA LUMPUR: The Royal Malaysian police has bought 25 high-powered Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution cars to catch criminals and speed hogs.
The cars, worth several millions of ringgit, would be fitted with safety gadgets and would sport the looks of police patrol cars.
These millions spent would in turn make a huge amount of revenue for the police forces. That's if work is done p-r-o-p-e-r-l-y.
“The cars are to be used in high-speed car chase, especially in cases of carjacking, kidnapping and hijacking.
“The speed of the cars would enable the police to catch up with criminals who often used modified turbo charged cars to escape,” they said.
Those who are fond of driving fast, if these machines catch up with you, I guess you will have to fork out m-o-r-e. LOL!
Just so if ou are wondering how fast can they go. =)
