The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department (LASD) has been testing police vehicles annually since 1974, and the 2011 model-year edition featured new entries from the likes of Ford, Chevy and Dodge. You've read about Ford's new Taurus-based Police Interceptor that looks to replace the venerable Crown Victoria, and you've seen our episode featuring the hi-tech Chevy Caprice PPV, but who wins in a head to head comparison?

While police departments lament the passing of the Ford Crown Victoria as their police interceptor of choice, they can at least take heart that Ford's replacements, new police cars based on the Ford Taurus and Explorer, have been validated by the Michigan State Police, one of two key validators for police departments nationwide.

The Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Polizia is a very capable police cruiser that just happens to also be an extremely desirable Italian exotic. How many police cruisers can go 200 mph while toting a vital organ in its specially made refrigerated storage? While Lambo and the Italian State Police thought of all kinds of neat amenities to make the LP560-4 the perfect cruiser, they neglected to install an idiot detection device and now they're paying the ultimate price.
