The Civilian Caprice
Growing up we’ve all imagined what it would like to own or operate a police vehicle . Indeed, the blaring sirens and those glorious colours are the envy of even the most austere motorist, causing most of us to stare in awe. Luckily for some, the American car company Chevrolet is gearing up to release this high performance car in showroom rather soon, giving us all the opportunity to test a similar model out for ourselves.
Set to be revealed at the New York autoshow in April, the new vehicle was developed by Chevrolet for the 2013 NASCAR entry. The company has gone on the record as saying that it will replaced the Impala for the Chevy team, noting that a similar supercharged car is planned to go on sale around the world rather soon. While the current vehicle is not part of the original Chevy linup, reporters believe that the vehicle is not attached to any other division of the General Motors.
Jim Campbell , the company’s vice president, recently went on the record as saying that “we are keeping the wraps on the new car for now and will continue to prepare for next season by testing camouflaged vehicles.” While he went on to say that many fans have shown interest in this new and exciting vehicle, they’ll have to wait a little longer to get any more details.
Reporters speculate that the vehicle may appear similar to the current generation Chevy Caprice that is produced in Australia. Used on the United States police force, the rear-wheel-drive vehicle was already briefly released in the United States and is now looking for a wider audience.
USA today has also reported that the company is planning on resigning the Impala will instead be building this model. The company has long flirted with the idea of a caprice for many years, mainly worried about profit potential. However, putting all their bets in one pool, the executives believe that the high performance sedan will appeal to a younger generation of individuals aged between 11 and 30, banking on the hot-rod look.
While there is no word about any new additions to the UK concerning this model, perhaps this jot of energy will see it upgraded if not entirely remodelled. Based on the company’s brilliant track record in the past several years the car certainly won’t disappoint.
