    Hi all

    Does anyone know or can anyone confirm if the QLD police ever owned a HSV VF Clubsport 340kw, blue in colour?

    Friend has just purchased a used one and thinks his car is ex QLD police?

    Regards,

    RTSV6UTE

    Its possible...
    Many years ago, the local commander at the Preston Police had a Coupe 4 to drive around in. In blue and white police colours.

    I believe they also had a red and yellow one as well - I've seen the red one at a Sydney dealer maybe a year or so ago had HSV build plate on the console from memory, instead of the usual Clubsport R8 etc the car I saw was designated SVR, I've forgotten its number I was thinking there were only four such HSV's - but I see on the side of those blue ones "Fatal 5" so I guess there were 5 of them.
    Edit, I just looked on Carsales I had seen the yellow one advertised there and just realized the car on Carsales is a 2011 VEII (E3), now I'm not sure if it was a VF or VEII (E3) that I saw - the yellow VE II on Carsales is asking $79,000
    Edit again, it seems Fatal5 and Fatal4 is a road safety campaign and not an indicator of the number of HSV's that they had. Google images shows a number of cars in different colours

    Saw a silver HSV cop car in NSW a few weeks ago so they definitely exist.
    I bought a ex police VX SS years ago. Easy to tell, It said Victorian highway patrol on the first owner sticker that they put in the book etc. Also had some minor repairs to parts of the dash where holes had been patched. Also it had done 50,000ks in less than a year........ another key indicator.

    just a general question? most people think that buying a ex cop car means its got more performance or something? i have a few friends in the force and they have told me storys about frying there brakes and rotors cos they just dont give a ****.

    Those ‘police’ calipers they put on are probably more durable and cheaper to replace, not better...not by a country mile. The main difference to normal cars is alternator and second battery.

    I remember spending a day at the police driving school at St Ives in Sydney in the late '80's. They had a handful of VL Turbo's which they were flogging around on the day. I have never seen cars being more abused and mistreated in my entire life. I pity the poor bastards that bought one of these

    Hi

    I don't pity them at all, they are collectors items and the BT1's from the 80's are now worth good money. However your comment about them been abused at the St Ives driving school brings flashbacks from the original "Police Academy" movie.

    Regards,

    I saw a red VF Clubby NSW HP at Bathurst last year. It was fully kitted up. Not sure it was a promo car or not. But, it was cruising around town over the race weekend.

    Spotted a silver one this morning on Caloundra Rd. Number plate FATAL3 so QLD police still have HSV in the fleet. Recalling back to the red one I saw in Sydney for sale, it only had standard looking SS type seats not HSV specific seats.

    Would their belts with taser, pistol etc fit in a HSV bolstered seat ?
