Who says America can't produce awesome cars, check out this prototype police car

The intriguing Carbon Motors E7, is so-called purpose built police car that can run on biodiesel and has such features as integrated shotgun mounts, a driver-specific intelligent key and a hose-able rear passenger compartment.

This vehicle is built specifically for police work only, compared to retrofitted civilian-to-police cars such as the Dodge Charger, Ford Crown Victoria or Chevy Impala.

The Carbon E7, which is on a nationwide rollout, is powered by a 3.0-liter diesel that churns out 300 horsepower and delivers 420 pound-feet of torque.

The engine is linked to a six-speed automatic transmission. The E7 rides on a 122-inch wheelbase and has a curb weight of 4,000 pounds.

Its makers say it sprints from zero to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph. It also boasts a 75-mph rear impact crash capability.

An oldish subaru legacy wagon :)
Its getting on and we were going to replace it this year, but figured its more prudent to keep it for another year.
