Engaging in a car chase is always a dangerous and skillful activity, but now many police forces have vehicles in their fleets that allow them to perform better than ever.In addition to excellent driving skills, police need cars that are safe, powerful, and fast enough to engage in vehicular hot pursuits of suspects. Luckily, many countries have decided to invest to get the ideal cars for the job. From Lamborghinis to Ferraris, law enforcement agents now have a plethora of powerful vehicles at their disposal. Dubai, for instance, has enough supercars to leave many a car enthusiast in awe. In fact, they have some of the most expensive cop cars in the whole world! But many other countries also have powerful machines in their arsenal.

Renault has joined Ferrari in saying it will not back any move for a Formula 1 engine freeze from the start of 2022. The Milton Keynes-based team is clear that it can only do so if there is a block on development, as it cannot afford the huge costs that would come from having to keep upgrading the
