BMW M5 Competition Is Now The Fastest Police Car In Australia
The powerful BMW M5 Competition joins the police fleet in Australia. The Victoria Police Department has just taken ownership of the F90 M5 Competition, which is now the fastest police car in Australia. BMW already provides the diesel-powered 5 Series to the Australia’s police fleets, but the brand’s M5 Competition is the jewel of the police department.
There’s also great variety of police cars in Australia, from the FPV GT RSPEC, an Audi RS4 Avant, Chrysler 300 SRT Core, Kia Stinger and a Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe.
The special-liveried, one-off BMW M5 Competition develops 617 hp and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) from its twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 and, with a top speed of 190 mph (305km/h).
Thanks to all that power, the M5 Comp Police Car does the 0-62 mph run (100 km/h) in just 3.3 seconds.
“Since cooperating in the deployment of BMW 5 Series patrol vehicles in 2018, BMW Group Australia has enjoyed working closely with Victoria Police,” says BMW Australia’s CEO, Vikram Pawah.
“Now with the incredible BMW M5 Competition entering Victoria Police service, the performance level has jumped up the scale. When combined with the safety of the xDrive four-wheel drive system, the M5’s all-round ability… makes it a natural fit for dynamic police duties.”
BMW says the M5 Competition is “fully operational” as a Highway Patrol vehicle, but is yet to go into specifics about the modifications that have taken place.
