Mean Mustang Police Car Leads German Parade
Germans Use “Shock and Awe” for Law Enforcement
The Mustang is a popular car in Germany. The V8 especially, with a huge majority of cars sold there powered by the 5.0-liter Coyote mill. It’s become so popular that even the police are getting in on the action. Check out this Ford Mustang in German police livery!
Built for the Cologne Carnival parade, this European-spec V8 Mustang was donated by Ford and modified by Wolf Racing to participate in the event. Like many other fun police cars we’ve seen, this isn’t actually being used for law enforcement, but rather to help create publicity. In this case, the car is promoting Germany’s Tune it! Safe! program.
According to Motor Authority, the engine is boosted slightly to 455 horsepower. It’s also got a custom exhaust, Hankook tires, a body kit, and lightweight wheels. Dolled up in police livery, this mean Mustang definitely looks the business. Would you want this thing coming up behind you while blasting down the motorway?

Of course, a Mustang doesn’t really make much sense for law enforcement, no matter what side of the pond you reside. The lack of an easily-accessible back seat makes it difficult to find a place to put the perps. And interior comfort is necessary on a vehicle designed to accommodate a police officer and all of the necessary equipment.
Regardless, we like seeing these one-off police concepts. Especially when they’re designed to promote a safety program or foster better relationships with the police. Hopefully the driver of this particular Mustang was able to leave the parade without running over or swerving towards a bunch of onlookers, like folks tend to do at Cars and Coffee events here in the United States!
