Police in the Czech Republic have added a Ferrari 458 to the fleet after the supercar was confiscated a decade ago.
Czech police have added a Ferrari 458 Italia to their fleet, using the confiscated vehicle for special traffic operations.
Wrapped in a special silver, blue and neon yellow livery, the Ferrari 458 police car is equipped with lights and sirens plus an on-board radar unit to detect speeding drivers.
In addition to this, approximately CZK130,000 ($AU7750) was spent on getting the 458 roadworthy again, having notched up only 2000km before it was confiscated and stored for a decade.
According to Czech police, the Ferrari supercar will be used to combat street racers, and deployed on routine highway patrol duties on the nation’s motorway network.
The Ferrari 458 is one of many unique police cars used in Europe.
Italy’s police service has had a number of high-performance cars such as the Lamborghini Huracan, Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio and a Lotus Evora S.
