Audi Latest News: Audi S7 Joins New South Wales Police Force
The New South Wales Police has a new member in the Audi S7 but the Sportback won't be seeing much action. The Audi S7 will be used mainly for promotional purposes.
The New South Wales Police will have the S7 for 12 months during which the police force plans to make the community aware of their presence and involvement in various programs especially those concerning youth engagement. The police authorities hope the use of extravagant cars help them become more approachable to people of all ages.
Aside from helping police officers engage with the youth and community in general, the S7 may be used in police operations such as chasing criminals.
The Audi S7 is equipped for that duty. It has a 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 engine. Its 450 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque allows it to go 100km/h in just 4.6 seconds while the maximum speed is 250km/h.
Audi conducted a survey on their Audi Australia page last year to determine the design of the S7 police car. According to a report, more than 800 Facebook users voted on a livery of blue and white checkered pattern placed at the bottom part of the car and across its hood and roof. Police decals are also strategically placed around the exterior. The red-and-blue flashing lights are mounted on the dashboard.
Also on loan to the New South Wales police force as mention in a CNET Road Show article, are a Lexus RC F, a Porsche 11, a Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe, and a Volvo S60 Polestar.
Last year, Audi lent the RS 4 Avant to the Sidney Police Force. Police departments in some other places in the world have resorted to employing cool cars to appeal to the community. A Lamborghini Gallardo has joined the Los Angeles fleet while the UK opted for an Ariel Atom. Dubai has reportedly spent $6.5 million to equip their police fleet with high-end cars such as an Aston Martin One-77, a Lamborghini Aventador , and a Bugatti Veyron.
