We may know Mercedes as a luxury marque here, but in Europe, the Silver Star also adorns more utilitarian vehicles, from taxis to buses to trucks. Still, no matter where you are in the world, the CLS-Class is more about form than function, but that hasn't stopped the Finnish police from drafting one in duty.

Or, we should say, having one drafted into duty for it. Because this new addition to Finland's highway patrol was selected by the public. Of all the people or public entities and of all the cars, the readers of the country's Takniikan Maailma chose the Finnish police the most deserving of a new 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.

Skip on down below for an overly-dramatic and completely incomprehensible (but somehow still captivating) video of the converted shooting brake.
