Ferrari 348 Police Car Patrols Colombia

The Colombian police vehicle pool now includes a Ferrari 348, so it will be a pleasure to engage pursuit. But let’s find out how this almost retro Prancing Horse got to be a police car.

According to Elcolombiano, the 1991 Ferrari 348, which only has 1,200 miles (1,900 km) on its odometer, had been confiscated from a local drug dealer, Hernando Gomez Bustamante, also knows as “Rasguno” or “Scratchy”, who is currently behind bars.

Colombia's National Drug Office entered possession of the car, but the government recently closed the division altogether as many of the confiscated drug assets kept disappearing.

Then, the authorities decided to sell the vehicle, evaluating it at $250,000, which is... a bit much for what you get. Since nobody wanted to buy the car, it now wears the Colombian national police’s livery and will tour the country before being displayed in a police museum.

Our say: wouldn’t it have been better to actually use the car for police work?
