Apparently Carbon Motors has been around for a little while now, trying to sell their tactical E7 police cruisers to law enforcement agencies across the country—especially since Ford announced they are stopping production on the Crown Vic, labeled “America’s Police Car.” Now Carbon Motors has struck a partnership with BMW to provide diesel engines for the E7. The new engines purport to cut CO2 emissions by 40%, go from 0 to 60 in 6.5 seconds, and get about 30 miles to the gallon.

But the cars is also one of the only cars ever to be built specifically for law enforcement use, with built in (not mounted) lights, “suicide” doors, and other features.
