Although the R35 GT-R has also been in production for over a decade now, its powertrain is still respectable at 565 horsepower. Combined with its all-wheel-drive, the GT-R sounds like a serious police cruiser. The light bar will probably knock a few miles off the top speed, though. Even so, we bet the GT-R Police Special doesn't have the 180 km/h (112 mph) speed limiter that its civilian counterparts in Japan have. As such it should still be one of the fastest machines on Japanese public streets.
The GT-R will also be used for public relations work in the community, so it's not just about catching speeders – even though the officers are reportedly very excited about the car. We, and surely the officers, are glad the new police car wasn't a special edition Leaf.
