- Coolest service vehicles
Back then, the cossies were being dumped mercilessly by Northumbria Police because the new kid on the block was the mighty Volvo 850R/T5’s….. they crashed better and were better at carrying kit.
Can testify to the kit carrying capabilities of the Mighty T5
Ex North Yorks V70 T5 ARV.. 320Bhp fire breathing monster
Northumbria Police had a habit of using interesting/novel kit… seem to remember at times they had a 911 and a Vauxhall Nova Sport..
These were an interesting toy because they were a “Homologation Special” i.e. specifically build for motorsport I know cos I rallied one for 5 years 😉 and they were rather potent under that rather bland exterior…. 1300cc engine on Twin 40 DCOE webbers handled like they were on rails. Northmbria Police used theirs as a rapid response area car in the city center as it could carve through traffic like a hot knife..Posted 5 years ago
