West Midlands Traffic Cops Build Fantasy McLaren 12C Patrol Car

By Gary Cutlack on at

We wouldn't mind being pulled over for doing 76mph on the motorway by one of these, a custom McLaren 12C Spider decked out in traditional traffic police patrol colours by West Midlands Police.

It is, sadly for the traffic officers of the unit, just a mock up, designed to somehow spread a message about safe driving or something among young drivers. Dunno how that works, as it just makes us want to check if it can really do 207mph along the A30 one night.

The police, being all modern nowadays, have even uploaded a little Vine showing the McLaren 12C off from a few additional angles. And don't complain about it being a waste of taxpayer's money -- the cars are just on loan from a local supercar dealer. [Mirror]
