CAR: Coptimus Prime

Unlike most exotic sport cars used by police in Italy and the Middle East for publicity, this one actually has a history.

In fact, in cop slang, it has a rap sheet.

The Chevrolet Corvette you see here was seized from a drug dealer by the New Braunfels Police Department in Texas in 2015, and has been in custody ever since, wearing a black and white police car wrap, with a new name and a new job.

Now known as Coptimus Prime, the recycled ‘Vette is used by NFPD as an attention-getter at high school visits and community events, but will eventually be auctioned off - when it’s done its time.
