Australia’s Northern Territory Police to use Kia Stingers

Attached Image Since the demise of the local-produced Holden Commodores and Ford Falcons, Australian police departments have been searching for alternatives.

So for the policemen working in Australia’s Northern Territory, they opted to go with Kia’s high-performance sedan, the Stinger. Serving as a replacement to the Commodore SS models previously used by the highway patrol fleet, these cars will be powered by the twin-turbocharged 3.3-litre V6 engine that delivers 365bhp.

Meanwhile, other states like Victoria for example, opted for the BMW 530d, which costs well over twice as much as the Stinger while South Australia backed the Europe-sourced ZB Commodore.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?
