In a Crown Vic? Yeah, right.

A crown Vic without a light bar will top out at about 135-137 mph if new and in good tune, max. However a few cop forces are rumoured to have bought a few Mercury Marauders. And having virtualy the same engine as the Mustang GT, these rare sizziling hot baconrunners really can makes pigs fly. The OPP here in Toronto are rumoured to have one, though I've yet to see it, and hopefully, I never seen it in my mirror.

"I just hit his rear tire on his motorcycle and then he lost control,"



Anyone else have a problem with this? He intentionally downed a bike at some presumably very high speed. LEOs are trained to (safely) spin a car out, but a bike?



Note that I in no way condone what the biker was doing - he should loose his ticket for a very long time and spend a while locked up.

Let's pretend he was chasing a car instead and in the post-chase interview the officer says: "I got close to the motorist and took a few shots at him with my service revolver, to get him to pull over." How do you think that would play in the media?

Yeah, about 300hp, only 40 more than the current Crown Vics.

Right, then you woke up...



Like the time I got a ticket on my Jawa 90 for going "over 80 mph" by LA's finest...



Sounds like the good sheriff was hopped up on too many doughnuts. I don't think a Crown Victoria could hit 145, even if you dropped it out of a C130 from 10,000 feet.

Agreed, specially on those roads. It's been awhile since I been through there but I suspect a Crown Vic would reguire a long straight to break 100.. I don't see any long straights on the google sat map..

Look! The cop has one of those gay mustaches!



The brown shirt completes the motif.

The CV is supposed to be able to hit about 130. This was near Denver. Maybe they were going downhill. Maybe the extra donught weight helps with downhill velocities.

So after he was knocked down to the ground, he got up and got in his car, maneuvered it back onto the road and then sped off to attempt to kill the motorcyclist? He's apparently made of sterner stuff than anyone I know...
