Ferrari supercar turned into ultimate 202mph POLICE car after being confiscated from crooks by cops

FORGET your Ford Focus or Vauxhall Astra panda cars, this police force is getting serious against high-speed crime.

Not only that, they’re using a 202mph supercar they confiscated from criminals.

The Police of Czech Republic announced that their new Ferrari 458 began service on Monday.

The total cost for its respray from red to silver, its new lights, siren, stickers and other equipment was around £10,000.

The Czech police point out that that’s much less than the cost of the brand new Skoda Octavia police car they’d normally go for.

Although it was nearly £180,000 when new, buying a Ferrari 458 today costs around £150,000.

And the Fezza will be put to good use, as the Czech police are finding that their normal cars can’t keep up with some criminals.

Specifically tuned cars that often meet to illegally street race and get carried away.

High-speed motorway chases are common and they hope this 458 will deter the road racers.

Around 30 cases of illegal street racing were reported in the country in 2019 where high-performance cars reach extreme speeds on public roads that their usual cars can’t keep up with.

The Czech police say this Ferrari isn’t the most expensive car it has confiscated – it has taken some 900 vehicles over the past year.

Most of them are sold to compensate those affected by the crimes the supercar owners commit.

Deputy Chief of Police, General Tomáš Kubík, said: “If I were to mention one of the activities in which we significantly succeed in using legal authorisations, I must mention the securing of assets originating from criminal activities. 

“Last year alone, we secured assets worth almost CZK 7billion (nearly £240million) in this way, and I am personally convinced that we will be similarly effective in the future.’
