Even the cops in Australia have it over us. While we wait (impatiently) for the Pontiac G8 to start rolling off transport ships originating from the island continent sometime next year, the new VE Commodore is now entering fleet duty as a police interceptor. Holden released a trio of shots showing full-dress VE Commodore SSes ready for duty on the undoubtedly long stretches of road running through the Outback in Australia's Northern Territory. Boy, we would burn through a lot of gas if we were Australian police officers on patrol out there with one of these as the "company car."

      I saw a VE SS cop car about a week ago. A normal Melbourne city police car though, not a highway patrol thing like these. They've definitely tuned the car somewhat, the exhaust sounds meaner than the 415hp HSVs let alone the 360hp standard showroom SS.

      Meh, these cars must have been out at least 6 months and the Police in Melbourne are only getting them now. They actually look quite mundane as a Commodore Omega (base model) standard police car.

      But man if these are being used in the Northern Territory, where they only just got speed limits of approx 150kph on the highways, these puppies are gonna get flogged by the coppers! Most cops up there probably drive Toyota Landcruiser utes . . .

      That side stripe is really tacky! Nonetheless, I wouldn't want to run from that puppy, not unless I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that I was packing more balls under the hood than it was.
