We don’t know about you, but it might be some time before we dare to drive on the M1 or any other of the U.K.’s high speed thoroughfares. That is because we have just caught wind of the English bobby’s recent addition to their motor pool. Up until now the British traffic squad was using Subarus to chase down the bad guys, that was o.k. because after a few miles with the turbo spooled up would mean that the flat four engine’s top mount intercooler would be suffering from tremendous amounts of heat soak, lose power, and away you go.

However that won’t be the case anymore. Taking a page out of the American Law Enforcement handbook, the Humberside Police Force have decided to trade up for a couple of eight cylinder powered four door vehicles, but these aren’t just any V8s. They have decided to replace those worn out patrol cars with the most powerful Lexus on the market at the moment, the 415 HP IS-F. Aside from the already steep cost of ownership, the police squad also added almost £30,000 worth of additional on-board computers and communications equipment.

The Lexus IS-F has a performance minded modern day 5.0 Liter V8 engine capable of propelling the factory tuned IS from 0 to 60 MPH in only 4.8 seconds and reach an electronically limited top speed of 168 MPH.
