    Well, I never thought I'd say this, but,...a Kia as a Police pursuit vehicle?
    I know NOTHING official, apart from the fact that a month or so ago I had a casual conversation with a Highway patrolman, & He mentioned the Stinger.
    Rear Wheel Drive, 0-100 4.9, I reckon it could be the one,....I mean, what else is there?
    Of course there's plenty of big dollar cars, but I don't see any budget for them.

    ... a major hurdle for Vicpol (and I would imagine the other states) with their replacement vehicles
    Holden have/had serious fleet $ discounts available to the various state forces/RTA/Govt depts
    and
    will KIA/Jeep/BMW etc come to the party? time will tell

    If they were to use the Stinger there won't be any highway patrol cars on the road,most of them will be in the workshop getting engine rebuilds,The boys in blue are not very gentle on their cars

    I can actually see this being a vehicle government fleet controllers will look at and purchase. Why? AWD, plenty of safety features, economy and raised slightly ride height.

    I get we all love Holdens and HSV's (and those of us lucky enough to have had an HDT ), but how can you guys possibly say this when the stinger hasn't even been released yet. I will test drive one, along with offerings from Skoda, VW, MB & BMW.

    I mentioned in another thread that the 'Stinger' might be my next car???

    Back to thread though .... from what Sniper has suggested, sounds like the US offerings of Camaro/Corvette aren't a consideration going forward???

    '10 E3 Senator 6M - 26
    '06 VZ S2 R8 Maloo 4A - 31

    NOT I would agree ... if Holden are putting all their efforts into bringing in Subaru competitors
