The Miami Police Department’s latest car isn’t a car at all.
It’s a three-wheel Polaris Slingshot that was donated by the company to be used as a head-turning vehicle for community outreach.
“This is going to be an icebreaker for us. Kids are going to want to walk up to this car, see it, sit in it, talk to the policemen, the policemen get to talk to the kids. I mean, it’s going to be perfect, man, I’m super excited about it,” Miami Police Chief Emilio Gonzalez said at the unveiling Thursday.
According to Fox News, Miami’s version of this Slingshot is a top of the line Grand Touring model that starts at $29,450.
The 174 hp four-cylinder engine is good for a 0-60 mph time of about 5.5 seconds and 130 mph top speed.
