FORGET your Ford Focus or Vauxhall Astra Panda, these police are serious about high speed crime.

Not only that, they use a 202-mile supercar that they have impounded from criminals.

The Police of the Czech Republic announced that their new Ferrari 458 entered service on Monday.

Total cost for the red to silver repaint, new lights, siren, decals and other equipment was around £10,000.

Czech police point out that’s a lot less than the cost of the all-new Skoda Octavia police car they’d normally opt for.

Although it cost almost £180,000 new, a Ferrari 458 costs around £150,000 to buy today.

And the Fezza is put to good use as Czech police find their regular cars can’t keep up with some criminals.

Specially tuned cars that often meet and get carried away in illegal street races.

High-speed freeway chases are common and they hope this 458 will scare off street racers.

In 2019, around 30 cases of illegal street racing, in which high-performance cars reach extreme speeds on public roads that their usual cars cannot match, were reported in the country.

Czech police say this Ferrari isn’t the most expensive car they’ve seized – it stole about 900 vehicles in the past year.

Most of them are sold to compensate those affected by the crimes committed by supercar owners.

Deputy Chief of Police General Tomáš Kubík said: “If I have to mention one of the activities where we use legal powers with great success, I have to mention the securing of assets derived from criminal activities.

“Last year alone we secured assets worth almost CZK 7 billion (nearly £240 million) in this way and I personally believe we will be similarly effective in the future.”
