Ford Creates 'Stealth' Version of Police Interceptor

Ford Creates 'Stealth' Version of Police Interceptor

Ford debuts the ultimate stealth Police Interceptor concept at SEMA -- a customized version of its all-new Police Interceptor sedan goes undercover. [By Ford]

Ford came up with an interesting idea for its new police car — create a hot undercover “stealth” version. It’s just a concept, but it’s easy to imagine how much detectives would want this as their stake-out car.

Actually, it would look great but be fairly ineffective. The bad guys would be so intent on checking out that sinister, sleek car down the street that its cover would be blown instantly. Better to stick with the unmarked old Crown Vics with the cheap, tiny hubcaps.

The Police Interceptor is a custom version of the Ford Taurus meant as a marked patrol car.

The new stealth version was created specifically for the SEMA aftermarket parts show starting Tuesday in Las Vegas, and Drive On will be on hand.

“This car offered the perfect canvas for me as a designer,” Ford designer Melvin Betancourt said. “The Police Interceptor sedan is already a unique vehicle. I just started looking at ways to give it that mysterious but high-tech look.”

He lowered the body by an inch, added 22-inch wheels and went with glossy black.

    Perfect for a "bait" wheels. At least a few arrests nightly. A Pimp Daddy pair of dice on the rear view.

    You're joking, right? A "stealth" version of a police car? Stealth only works in traffic patrol. Better to continue the practice of driving civilian cars popular with the bad guys you're going after than to chance getting tagged in something from "Knight Rider".

    G6, Grand Prix, Land Rover, Escape, F-150... etc. Those are stealth vehicles. Making a vehicle exclusively for stakeouts is a big waste of money like DDemlong stated.

    DDem...i completely agree. This vehicle or unmarked Crown Vic both stand out. Might as well put the dept logo

    sounds like a waste of money. Kia Sorento FTW. Seriously, we need to stop doing stake outs in police vehicles. We are making it obviously un-obvious.

    22"'s and blacked out windows do make it blend well normally for undercover use, but the nice paint job, and general look of "quality" do it in. Need to throw on some tacky bumper stickers and maybe some tinted headlights/tailights and add a stuffed annimal or red logo somewhere...:-)
