    Audi R8 "LAPD"

    I was bored.

    Damn, the Audi R8 looks really good with the classic LAPD black and white color scheme.

    The LAPD and LA Sheriff have a lot of nice cars, mostly modded muscle cars and low-rider type cars... I have a picture of me and a LAPD Buick Grand National drag car.

    They use the show cars to raise awareness of whatever messages they are trying to get across to the public at events and shows.

    I guess the government pay of them...

    Thanks.

    For the cop, I used an action figure!

    Couldn't find any real cop pictures with such a pose...

    Send me a picture of a WHITE / SILVER Corvette (preferably 1600 x 1200) and then I can see what I can do.

    Do all cop cars in California have this seal on them? I'll try putting it on the Corvette once the guy wishing for the 'Vette sends the pics!

    No, that is the seal of the City of Los Angeles. Logos vary from department to department.

    The seal goes on top, then POLICE, then under it is usally the City motor pool number for the car. On a 4 door, "protect and Serve" is usually on the rear doors but it could go anywhere really.

    well, unless i'm mistaken, Lamborghini donated a bunch of Gallardos to the Polizia a while back, i don't see what would prevent them(VW Group) from donating a bunch of R8s.

    It was just the one - it was used briefly as an organ transport vehicle and then put in a museum...
