Finnish Police Get Shooting Brake Patrol Car

CLS Shooting Brake specifically a 350 CDI with the 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 churning out 262 horsepower and 457 lb-ft of torque. Which may not be enough to catch a Koenigsegg wandering over the border from Sweden, but should be enough to intercept the average Volvo or Saab.

Was it not in Finland where some billionaire had to pay a $500.000 speeding fine? Money well spent.

Beats the heck out of the Vauxhall Astra the cops in England get. I think a Nevada Highway Patrol Hemi Charger could take it though.
Whoever said there's nothing more expensive than a cheap Mercedes never had a cheap Jaguar.

83 300D Turbo with manual conversion, early W126 vented front rotors and H4 headlights 362,xxx miles
08 Triumph Street Triple 30,xxx miles, lowered 10mm in front, Pirelli Angel GT tires, EBC HH brake pads, otherwise stock.
88 Jaguar XJS V12 92,xxx miles. I should be in the garage now.

I had to google that. Looks like their equivalent of a Ford Focus.

Really? That's a police car?
