However the best looking patrol car goes to Volvo S60's these just looked the part, didn't live up to what was needed but looked spot on. I am waiting to see a V90 liveried up in real life.
Will you be driving one of the new V90's?

Have owned two professionally converted mk2 golf gti with vr6 engines, one a 2.8 and one a 2.9. Difference on paper spec is not huge but I concur, the 2.9 was a ballistic monster!!
