Turns out AMG products are very popular with Police departments all around the world. A while ago we showed you a Mercedes AMG GT delivered to the German Polizei, and now the Australian Police gets Mercedes-AMG GLE63 Coupe. If it keeps going like this, soon cops will be street racing each other with their exotic cruisers.
The Mercedes-AMG GLE63 Coupe delivered to Victoria Police will be used primarily as a show car to promote in-car safety features at exhibits across the state over the next 12 months. It will also go on a few highway patrols, where the officers will have a chance to open up the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine and see what 585 hp can do in a SUV. It is worth mentioning this GLE Coupe is the S-model which does 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds.
Assistant Commissioner Doug Fryer said it was important for people to consider buying the safest car they could afford when the time came to purchase a new vehicle. “Death and serious injuries on Victorian roads could be reduced by a third overnight if everyone was driving the safest cars they can afford,” he said. “Your car should be a guardian for your safety and the safety of your family much like police are a guardian for everyone in the community.”
