My Kind of Carbon Footprint

December 11th, 2008 Posted in Car Stuff, cool science, Support the Troops

A company called Carbon Motor Corporation has designed the first car that was designed specifically for police work and after reading about the features it has and seeing the photos, I would like to see it on every street in America YESTERDAY!  It is that freaking cool!

Flashing emergency lights are embedded in the E7’s frame, making the car aerodynamic and visible from all directions. The front seats are designed with extra space to accommodate a police officer’s utility belt.

The rear passenger compartment is completely sealed off from the cockpit. Molded plastic seats in back allow for easy cleaning and prevent prisoners from hiding contraband.

Two front-mounted cameras automatically scan license plates of nearby vehicles and alert police when they find a car flagged as stolen or involved in some other crime. According to developers, the car’s onboard equipment can also detect nuclear and biological threats.

Li said the car’s 300 bhp forced-induction 3.0-diesel engine will deliver 420 lb-ft of torque and propel the vehicle from zero to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds, with a governed top speed of 155 mph.

He also said the E7’s engine, which can run on either ultra-low sulfur diesel or biodiesel, will have a combined fuel economy rating of 28 to 30 mpg — up to 40 percent more fuel efficient than conventional police cruisers.

The men and women who put on a uniform every day to protect the public deserve to have every tool that we can give them to make the job easier and safer for them.  It even has ballistic protection for the officer built into the doors and dash as well as a FLIR system (Forward Looking Infra Red) according to their website

This is one of the coolest cars to come out in a long time and I certainly hope this is just the beginning of a long and successful life for Carbon Motor Corporation.

As for the officers who will (hopefully) be driving this car in the near future – You lucky bastards  😀

    I want one! The cruiser is neat, but I want to know when the consumer model comes out!

    Yea, I was thinking that too. And that partition means the kids can’t annoy you so much on those long drives
