Romanian Police Gets Jaguar XFR

Most Eastern European car buyers suffer from the German luxury car syndrome, where the badge or the grille instantly translates into an increase in coolness for the owner. So how do you get a luxury British automobile noticed in a country where speed limits are very strict? You give it to the police to enforce those limits.

That’s basically the way we see Romania’s highway police getting a 2010 Jaguar XFR, our favorite 510 horsepower stallion from the British isles. After it received a couple of “Politia” logos, one of which barely fits over the bonnet bulge, it will go into service patrolling the country’s highways.

To make make sure people take the Police Jag’ even more seriously, it’s been fitted with police lights, a siren, loudspeaker and flashing grille.

The good news is this will not cost the cash-strapped Police a single penny other than what they spend on fuel, because it’s being loaned to them by Premium Auto, the local Jaguar dealer.
