Would you suspect a 2012 Nissan GT-R as an unmarked police car?

A 2012 Nissan GT-R is currently in the conversion process in North Virginia by a company known as EVI who is in the business of converting a spanking new model of the 590 metric horsepower supercar into an official police vehicle for a Virginia law enforcement agency as yet unnamed.

The EVI Corporation is in the unusual business of outfitting official police vehicles with all the modern features and technology required by the men in blue of the 21st Century. The initials stand for Emergency Vehicle Installations. The company is currently in the process of adding blue and red lights with the appropriate strobe controllers and other necessary tech to a brand new 2012 Nissan GT-R with only 13 miles on the odometer when in entered their shop.

One thing we’ve noticed locally is if you see a hot, high-performance vehicle just sitting by the roadside, such as this 2012 Nissan GR-R, it’s probably an excellent idea to observe all traffic rules faithfully as you pass it.

These days unmarked police vehicles can be almost anything with any exterior look – from Mustangs to pickups to almost anything on the road – though we’ve yet to see a police equipped minivan – but we wouldn’t rule it out. Gone are the days when an all white Crown Victoria was your first clue.

If fact, about the only thing today that would really surprise would be passing a new Prius a little too fast, only to see it light up and roar to life as a police car.
