Jaguar XFR beefs up Romania Police force

Romania’s local Jaguar importer, Premium Auto, has offered the Romania Police force a Jaguar XFR that was produced in 2010 for a period of six months. The Romanian Police, who will get the car for free, will use it on the A1, A2 and A3 highways. During the six months contract, the big cat is expected to cover a distance of 15,000 to 20,000 km.

It seems like the Romania Police always get cool drives at no cost. In 2011, a 350bhp Lotus Evora S was given to them, making if their fastest police car ever. Now, the storming XFR is the most powerful car in their fleet.

The Jaguar XFR is equipped with a 5 liters V8 engine which is capable of developing 510bhp. The top-of-the-range XF model accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds before reaching a top speed of 250 km/h.

Hence, if a law breaker thinks of running away from this police car, he would better think twice. The Jaguar XFR had a starting price of 100,000 euros (SGD $152,958), inclusive of VAT. I would gladly pay that amount myself as the same amount could perhaps only get a Jetta Sport in our little red dot, no thanks to the high COE.

This is not the first time a Jaguar XF is deployed to enforce law and order. A special version of the XF Diesel S was announced in 2009 for the UK police car market, with the first police force orders in 2010.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
