25 Sports Cars Cops Have No Chance Against In A High Speed Chase

Many people would like to own a supercar, a car that can run so fast that no police car can catch it. But few people can afford them. The term “sports car” appeared for the first time in London, in a 1919 edition of The Times, according to Wikipedia. In the USA, this term was first used in 1928. There are different types of sports cars, from simple models to luxurious ones, but all of them are aerodynamic with a lower center of gravity in comparison with the standard models. In addition, their bodies are lightweight, and they also possess a higher maneuverability than other types of cars.

A sports car can be a coupe or a roadster, but the automotive producers have also considered that Sports Tourers were also needed in the market to fill in the gap. In the meantime, tuners all over the world can transform a normal car into a sports car through a series of performance mods, and they can even reach the power offered by known name supercars (Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche etc.).

However, if one owns a supercar, one is always tempted to push the acceleration pedal to the bottom and maybe participate in a street race because of the huge power of the car, but the police don't approve of this. Sports cars are usually chased, but few are caught in the process. The driver is also a very important pawn in this game because he or she has to know the true power of the car, and if he or she doesn't have the experience needed to keep it under control and drive it correctly, real problems can appear.

25 2018 Audi R8

via motortrend.com

The Audi R8 has been a beautiful coupe / convertible since the first model, according to Car and Driver. Over the years, this sports car has received a lot of mechanical upgrades that make it easier to drive and more powerful.

The 2018 R8 is offered with a 5.2-liter V10 engine that delivers 540 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque, while the V10 Plus version has a total of 610 horsepower.

The four-wheel drive and the seven-speed automatic transmission are given as standard options, but there's also a limited-edition model with rear-wheel drive that's said to have only a limited number of 999 cars. In a video found on YouTube, there's a police chase that involves an Audi R8 and that ends with the sports car getting away after hitting, in reverse, the cops’ car in the front bumper to make room. In the end, the police car hits something, and the image goes dark. That driver knew how to react the moment he or she was almost caught and thus managed to escape but in a nasty way. The Audi R8 is a powerful car that can outrun most of the police cars out there, even in such bad circumstances.

24 2014 Nissan GT-R

via youtube.com

2009 was the year when the first Nissan GT-R was seen on North American streets. With four-wheel drive, 480 horsepower, and 430 lb-ft of torque, it sprinted from 0 to 60 mph in under four seconds, according to Digital Trends. Because of its insane handling and huge amount of power, it was called “Godzilla,” the Nissan monster with four wheels. The GT-R has a handbuilt engine, a 3.8-liter V6 with 545 horsepower mixed with an automatic transmission with six speeds and a dual-clutch, and the ATTESA E-TS four-wheel drive system. 2.7 seconds will be enough to get the Japanese sports car from 0 to 60 mph, and this is quite an interesting time. The Nissan GT-R can also be placed on this list of cars that blew away cops in a chase because it really did. According to Speed Society, in 2014, there was a high-speed chase that included this type of car. The video shows the sports car speeding or better “flying” towards the freeway entrance with two police cars further away on its tail, but a few moments later, the camera catches the patrol cars stopped on the side of the road because they didn't manage to catch “Godzilla.”

23 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT

via mercedes-benz.com

The AMG versions of Mercedes-Benz models are well known to be performance cars, sports cars, and even race cars. The new AMG GT comes with three different versions of power, but the same 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo engine and the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (only automatic available): the GT S with 515 horsepower and 494 lb-ft of torque, the GT C with 550 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque, and the GT R with 577 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. Each version has more interesting upgrades than the others, the GT R being the best of them all, speaking of power and suspension. Having in mind that the technology has advanced quite a bit over the last few years, the new Mercedes-Benz model is equipped with the latest safety measures that can be placed on a car nowadays. Being a Mercedes-Benz, the AMG GT lives up to the standards of the German automaker. It's a remarkable performance sports car that offers endless possibilities to those who choose to drive it. Speaking of high-speed chases, the AMG GT won't remain to chat with the police and would instead outrun them and speed up until it reaches a safe distance.

22 2018 McLaren 570S

via autocar.co.uk

There are actually three McLaren 570 cars, the 570S, the convertible 570S Spider and an interesting long-distance 570GT for comfort, according to Car and Driver. The engine is the same for all three versions mounted in the back of the car, a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 that develops 562 horsepower linked to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and rear-wheel drive.

The top speed gets to 204 mph, while the sprint from 0 to 60 mph is completed in only 3 seconds.

This car is indeed fast, and it's quite interesting that McLaren has chosen to make a 570 especially for long distance driving with more comfort than the sport versions of this car. The exterior design of these three supercars is almost the same (the GT has a glass roof and a glass hatch on the side), but the interior of the GT is different (the cargo hold is triple in size than the one of the S version), while the S version has specific chassis tuning. This comfortable supercar, with its hardcore speed and power, can be really hard to catch in a high-speed chase, especially if the driver has got the experience needed to drive it as it should be driven.

21 2017 Honda NSX

via autoscout24.ch

This hybrid Honda is one of the most intriguing supercars that exist on the market. The engine offered with this sports car is a mid-mounted 3.5-liter V6 that delivers 573 horsepower and is combined with a hybrid powertrain with three electric motors. The automatic transmission features a nine-speed dual-clutch gearbox as a standard option, along with the four-wheel drive, according to Car and Driver. The Honda NSX was developed in the USA after a strange disappearance beginning 2005. The 2017 new model can be considered an interesting rival for the Ferrari 488, the Audi R8, and the McLaren 570S, according to Top Gear. The carmakers thought that adding four modes would make the car more interesting, and it really did. Track, Quite, Sport, and Sport-Plus, along with the other possible calibration tweaks that can be made to the adaptive dampers, the electrically assisted steering, and the stability control system make the car react in different ways. There's a video on YouTube that shows a black Honda NSX evading the cops after a high-speed chase on a freeway. The power of this car, combined with the handling and the abilities of the driver make it unbeatable by a police car. The cops would stand a chance, though, if they would come with another supercar.

20 2017 Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4

via Luxurylaunches.com

The Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 is actually an entry-level model made by the Italian producer from Sant’Agata, replacing, in fact, the Gallardo model. However, this vehicle is definitely a real hardcore sports car, and compared to the next model in line, the Aventador, it offers a lot for a 50 percent lower price, according to The Car Connection. The Huracan is offered with a 5.2-liter V10 engine that delivers 601 horsepower with 413 lb-ft of torque. It can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in approximately 3.2 seconds with a top speed of 202 mph. Overall, it's a precise car on the road and on the track as well, with a stunning design and three modes that make it perfect for any type of drive: the Strada for daily use, the Sport for a playful drive, and the Corsa for the track. Car enthusiasts consider it a perfectly balanced car that also has a beautifully shaped convertible version, the Spyder. In a funny video found on YouTube, a guy with a Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 is cruising with his wife (who's driving a Dodge Charger SRT), and while they're playing with the cars on the freeway, a police car approaches the Lamborghini. Unfortunately, the authorities don't stand a chance when the beast starts howling and speeding, and in the end, the Huracan is declared the winner.

19 2016 Aston Martin DB11

via db11.astonmartin.com

The Aston Martin DB11 appeared right after the DB9, and the DB9 appeared after the DB7, representing a full refresh of the DB line since the 2003 DB9, according to Car Magazine. The upgrades feature a turbocharged 5.2-liter V12 engine that delivers 609 horsepower with 516 lb-ft of torque, in comparison with the naturally aspirated old DB9 5.9-liter V12 engine that developed only 525 horsepower and 457 lb-ft of torque. The car sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds, a clear improvement from the old 4.6-second time of the DB9. The top speed was increased from 183 mph to a perfect 200 mph. The interior lives up to the standards of an Aston Martin: being very comfortable and yet with the perfect speed for a sports car. The upgrades made to the Aston Martin DB11 are well placed and well thought of by the automaker. They were needed to revive the beauty, the agility, and the power of the James Bond car. There's no question that this new model can't outrun a police car in a high-speed chase. Even if it's quite big in size, it has a lot of power that, if used correctly, can help a driver get rid of the cops easily.

18 2017 Ferrari 488 GTB

via ForAllWorld Wallpapers

The Ferrari 488 GTB is one of those really powerful cars that gearheads would love to own, but it's kind of hard to buy. With 661 horsepower coming from the 3.9-liter V8, the sports car can manage to sprint from 0 to 124 mph in 8.3 seconds. The car’s chassis was made to handle all that power, and the car was equipped with huge carbon-ceramic brakes, a full electronic limited-slip differential, and perfectly chosen gluey tires that keep the car on the ground. When the Ferrari 458 was built, no one thought that a more powerful Ferrari could ever exist, but the Italian producer didn't think that the 458 model was enough, according to Car and Driver. The 488 GTB is faster by half a second than its predecessor on the Fiorano track. The test made by the American magazine Car and Driver included a 370-horsepower Hemi Dodge Charger Pursuit police car driven by Greg Haas (the driving teacher of the cops) and a Ferrari 488 GTB. The test showed that the Italian sports car can manage to escape a high-speed police chase quite easily. The police Dodge cannot keep up with its speed and handling, but the driver has to have a lot of experience to outrun the cops.

17 2015 - 2018 Dodge Challenger Hellcat

via hennesseyperformance.com

The 707 horsepower Dodge Challenger Hellcat was developed as a response to the Shelby GT500 from Ford that offered 550 horsepower in 2010, followed by the 662 horsepower model in 2013 and the Camaro ZL1 from Chevrolet that had 580 horsepower in 2011. With that amount of power, this car can outrun almost any supercar available on the market. However, there are still six sports cars it cannot beat: the Bugatti Veyron with 1,200 horsepower, the Ferrari LaFerrari with 950 horsepower, the McLaren P1 with 903 horsepower, the Porsche 918 Spyder with 887 horsepower, the Ferrari F12 with 730 horsepower, and the Pagani Huayra with 720 horsepower, according to Car and Driver. This car can be used to drive from point A to point B even if it's faster than usual, but this type of car was also seen in a high-speed chase on October 12, 2017 in Southeast Texas on the I10 freeway. In the first 10 minutes of the chase, the car was passing by the other vehicles with a 110 mph speed, as it was observed by a news helicopter. The suspect was caught when he ran out of gas, got out of the car, and tried to escape running through the bushes of a field. The police weren't able to catch the car.

16 2018 Pagani Huayra

via The Drive

The Pagani Huayra was unveiled in 2012 as the new Zonda version even if there were still some special-edition Zonda models until 2014, according to Top Speed. The hypercar/sports car is a stunning piece made of aluminum, carbon fiber, glass, and titanium, and it has a 6.0-liter AMG V12 engine that produces 700 horsepower and an incredible 738 lb-ft of torque. The transmission chosen is a sequential seven-speed single clutch.

The Pagani Huayra sprints from 0 to 60 mph in only 3 seconds, reaching a maximum speed of 224 mph.

The design of this supercar is unique, making it one of the few really astonishing models to put on a buying list. Even if the electronics aren't as advanced as the ones from Ferrari or Lamborghini, this model offers a great driving experience, as well as a huge amount of power to play with. Having in mind the power that this car produces, the fact that its top speed is 224 mph, and the lightweight body and the perfect way it can be handled, the Pagani Huayra can definitely outrun the police in a high-speed chase. These supercars can only be caught by other supercars like them; simple and normal cars have no chance.

15 2014 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

via motortrend.com

Ferrari is known to be a famous sports car maker that offered not one but many high-performance supercars. One of these very interesting and also stunning rides is the F12 Berlinetta that really stands out from the crowd. Back in 2014, this car was delivered with a very powerful engine, a 6.3-liter V12 that developed 731 horsepower and 509 lb-ft of torque.

It could sprint from 0 to 60 mph in only 3.6 seconds, and it needed only 11.3 seconds to run the quarter mile, according to Motor Trend.

With rear-wheel drive, a limited slip differential, and a huge amount of power, this car can twist dreams or offer a really pleasant drive. However, it's said that the F12 would be a perfect car to drive if the driver doesn't push it to the limit. The steering is really precise and quick, but the acceleration pedal shouldn't be pushed to the ground if one wants an engaging and fun ride. The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta was chosen by the German Police as one of their high-speed chase vehicles to be able to catch sports cars, so this means that in a normal police chase, this car would, without any question, outrun the police.

14 2015 McLaren P1

via youtube.com

The British plug-in hybrid supercar called the "McLaren P1" was first introduced to the market at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, according to Wikipedia. Some say that it could be a successor for the F1 because the producer used Formula 1 technology and hybrid power. The body of the car is made from carbon fiber with a MonoCage safety cage concept as the roof and rear-wheel drive. The 2015 McLaren P1 is offered with a 3.8-liter V8 twin-turbo petrol engine and 727 horsepower with 531 lb-ft of torque, mixed with an electric engine that offers 176 horsepower with 192 lb-ft of torque. With both the engines running, the sports car has a total of 903 horsepower and 723 lb-ft of torque. The McLaren P1 accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in only 2.8 seconds and from 0 to 124 mph in 6.8 seconds. It's quite a remarkable car in a high-speed police chase as seen in a video on YouTube. The camera mounted on the police car was filming the pursuit of a McLaren P1 on a freeway, but in the next second, the car simply accelerated and disappears from sight. It's really hard to catch such a beast.

13 2018 Bugatti Chiron

via bugatti.com

This is the most powerful sports car / hypercar ever produced. It has a gigantic 8.0-liter 16-cylinder engine that delivers 1,500 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft of torque with the help of four turbochargers. The top speed claimed by Bugatti is 261 mph, according to Car and Driver. In comparison with the Bugatti Veyron, it's quieter inside and has received a new grille badge, and the engine doesn't make that much noise anymore. Plus, the exhaust has also received an upgrade. The car sprints from 0 to 60 mph in less than 2.5 seconds, which is an unbeatable time. This car is really a masterpiece of power and technology. Because it's the fastest car that made it out of the production line, it cannot be beaten or outrun. The police would have to come up with another Bugatti Chiron to catch it, and they should have a racecar driver behind the wheel to be able to actually drive it. If one does have the chance to own such a car, that person would know for a fact that no one can catch it on the streets. Because it needs only 2.5 seconds or less to reach 60 mph, it doesn't need to work hard in losing the cops.

12 2017 Chevrolet Corvette

via thedrive.com

The Chevrolet Corvette first appeared in 1953, being introduced as a convertible concept show car at the GM Motorama, according to Wikipedia. Its name was established by Myron Scott, who played on the resemblance of the car with the Corvette warship. The Chevy Corvette has earned quite a reputation over the years, and it's also ended up being the star of a police street chase. Nowadays, this car costs approximately $55,495, so many individuals can afford to handle (or not) 460 horsepower with a 0-60 mph sprint in only 3.7 seconds (statistics according to The Drive). In December 2017, Volusia County, Florida was transformed into a movie scene by a suspect who ended up in a high-speed pursuit of a rented Chevy Corvette. There's a video in which the car can be seen weaving through traffic, avoiding the other cars within inches, and the ground units were unable to catch it. The driver was able to continue the pursuit even on the wrong side of the road, but he couldn't manage to escape the eyes in the sky, being eventually caught in the end. However, the chase was interesting, and it demonstrated the fact that the Chevy Corvette offers the power needed to outrun the police.

11 2016 Porsche Boxster 718 S

via carsguide.com.au

The Porsche Boxster has been an interesting sports-car choice for many people over the years, and the new-generation versions are becoming more and more aggressive and fun to drive. There's no other car that can offer such balanced brakes, handling, steering response, and ride control, all of them in a unique body design only a Porsche can deliver, according to website Driving. The engine of the iconic model has received an upgrade from the naturally aspirated previous version to the new turbocharged flat-four 2.5-liter with variable-turbine.

This engine delivers 345 horsepower with 310 lb-ft of torque.

The Porsche Boxster S reaches 60 mph in 4.2 seconds, a great time for this sports car. In a movie found on YouTube, there's a Porsche Boxster 718 S that escapes from a police chase through traffic, making its way between the gaps made by the other cars on the freeway. Being a rather small sports car, but a fast enough one, it can squeeze through and avoid being stopped by the cops. One can be sure that in a high-speed chase, this car would outrun the police without even struggling to do so. It has enough power to manage an escape.

10 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI

via www.vw.sk

The first Volkswagen Golf GTI, more exactly, the Mk1 sports version, was revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in March of 1975, according to Wikipedia. It was offered with two types of engines: a 1588 cc and a 1789 cc with four cylinders and a Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection. The power at that time was limited to 110 and 115 horsepower, while the 0-60 mph acceleration was possible in 9 seconds. From that moment, Volkswagen started to develop a GTI for each Golf version and make each of them more and more powerful.

The 2017 Golf GTI had a 2.0-liter inline-four turbo engine that offered 220 horsepower, according to Car and Driver.

The DSG version (the six-speed automatic gearbox) is well known in the tuning world, and there are many modded GTIs with DSG that have a lot of horsepower and performance upgrades. This car was also put to a test to try and run away from the Dodge Charger Pursuit. The Volkswagen Golf GTI not being modified car and, because of that, having a smaller amount of power than the police car, the task was really difficult. The Golf GTI can outrun a police car on narrow streets through neighborhoods and through the day-by-day city traffic because it's smaller and lighter than the Dodge, and it can squeeze through small spaces.

9 2018 Audi RS5

via gearpatrol.com

The new Audi RS5 has received a lot of upgrades in comparison with the previous version. Besides the second-generation MLB platform from Audi, used also for the A4, the A5, and the Q7 models, the 2018 RS5 has also got a new engine, according to Car and Driver. The old naturally aspired 4.2-liter V8 used on the 2017 RS5 was replaced with a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 that offers the exact same power as the other one, 444 horsepower. However, the torque has changed to 443 lb-ft in comparison with the 317 lb-ft of the previous engine. The sprint from 0 to 60 mph is made in 3.9 seconds, and the upgrades made to the engine transform this car into a piece of art in mechanical terms.

The gearbox has also received an upgrade, from the seven-speed S Tronic gearbox to the eight-speed ZF automatic transmission that's the only one available.

It's so precise that the RS5 doesn't need a manual gearbox at all. In a movie uploaded on YouTube, the police helicopter films a modified Audi RS5 that goes no more and no less than 180 mph, and the police aren't able to catch it. The driver manages to get away in the end—on foot, though.

8 2017 Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE

via automobilemag.com

This beautifully shaped Camaro SS 1LE can steal hearts and minds. With a 455-horsepower V8 engine, the well-chosen FE4 performance suspension with tuned springs; anti-roll bars; a full electronic limited-slip differential; a performance exhaust system with dual-mode; a track-cooling package that offers coolers for the transmission, the engine, and the differential; a set of tire made especially for the car (Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3), this sports car is really fascinating in every way.

The Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds and the matte-black hood is its distinctive mark.

Car and Driver magazine has also tried to see if this sports car could outrun the police or be caught during a chase. The result was quite amazing—a driver can easily escape from the chase because the car offers the possibility to go faster and even hide in a bush before the police car arrives. This supercar is one of the best, most, powerful, and most interesting sports cars on the market, and it's gained a lot of terrain on the supercars list in the past few years—not to mention the fact that it was the star of the Transformers movie.

7 2018 Ford Focus ST

via SuperUnleaded.com

The fourth generation of the Ford Focus ST, newly upgraded and redesigned, is ready to compete with the Volkswagen Golf GTI in the clash of the hot hatches. Nowadays, the automotive designers tend to merge the outside looks of the cars on the market. The new Ford Focus ST has received a little bit of the BMW 1 Series on the back and some Mercedes A-Class design parts in the general looks and dimensions, according to Auto Express. Car and Driver states that the new Ford Focus ST has received a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine (Intercooled Turbo Premium Unleaded) with four cylinders that delivers 252 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque as a standard option, along with the six-speed manual transmission. This car is really prepared for an interesting narrow Birmingham streets chase as it can be seen in the YouTube video found online. The police car could not keep up with the Focus ST that found its way through traffic and parked cars. In the end, the cops simply lost the orange Ford in a curve, and they couldn't continue the pursuit. Being a hatchback and a medium car, it can slip away very easy and fast, even through tight spaces, so it can outrun the cops.

6 2005 - 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X

via en.wikipedia.org

This was a very interesting car from the moment it was built for the first time in 1998 to the last model, the Lancer Evolution Final Edition from 2016, when the producer considered it was time to stop the Evo line. The sports sedan is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter that delivers 303 horsepower with a huge mid-range torque, as Car and Driver mentions. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evo was created for rallying, but its predecessor was the turbocharged Galant VR-4 sedan with a 2.0-liter 4G63 engine and four-wheel drive. Being too big to compete, the producer took the engine from the Galant and placed it under the hood of a Lancer, so the first 247-horsepower Lancer Evolution was born. In time, the Japanese carmaker started to upgrade the Evo to keep up with the racing standards. The 1993 Evo II received 256 horsepower, the 1995 Evo III had 266 horsepower, and so on. The Evo X can go ridiculously fast, and it can be easily handled in a race or in a high-speed pursuit. There's a video on YouTube that shows how an Evo X can outrun a police car by weaving through the traffic on the road and then taking a right before the patrol vehicle can manage to catch it.

5 2015 BMW M235i

via motor1.com

The BMW M models are well known for their power and high performance standards. The M235i is smaller than the 2003 M3 by an inch and a half, according to Car and Driver. It received an inline six-cylinder engine that offers 320 horsepower, less than the 333 horsepower of the M3. However, the German producer used a turbocharger to achieve this performance, in comparison with the stratospheric revs of the old M3. The acceleration from 0 to 60 mph is made in 4.9 seconds with its six-speed manual transmission, while the eight-speed automatic transmission offers the car a 0-to-60 mph sprint in only 4.3 seconds.

The BMW M235i can be driven easily as a daily sports coupe, but it can also be used by those who feel the need for speed.

Keeping in mind that it's not okay to run from the police, this BMW M235i can manage to escape from a high-speed pursuit very easily because it has enough power, and it's not hard to drive at all. Being a small sports car, the driver already has an advantage over the cops.

4 2018 Nissan 370Z

via motortrend.com

Beginning 2006, when the Nissan 370Z was being introduced on the market at a Los Angeles event before the 2008 Greater LA Auto Show, the Nissan Z-car line model made its way through a series of transformations to the present day. This entry-level sports car offers rear-wheel drive along with a naturally aspired 3.7-liter V6 engine with 332 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque for most of the models. There's also the possibility to choose the 370Z NISMO coupe that delivers 350 horsepower with 276 lb-ft of torque. It's also equipped with a Downshift Rev Matching six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed automatic gearbox. Weighing only 3,232 pounds and with key competitors like the Ford Mustang, the Chevrolet Camaro, the Subaru BRZ, and the Toyota 86, this car has the possibility to accelerate really fast in a speed chase, and it can lose the cops if the driver has the needed experience behind the wheel and if he or she knows the car. In a police chase, the best thing to do is to maintain focus and drive safe because lives can be at stake. If there's also a helicopter involved, the chase will turn into something bad in the end.

3 2017 Lotus Evora 400

via edmunds.com

As Car and Driver mentions, the Lotus Evora 400 is a lightweight sports car with a supercharged 3.5-liter V6 that offers a total amount of 400 horsepower and an acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds. This one isn't an ordinary supercar. The supple suspension makes the handling perfectly balanced, while the steering and the brakes were fitted to create an ideal driving experience. Being one of the most powerful cars Lotus has ever built, it manages to run smoothly on the street and offers an interesting getaway vehicle that costs around $100,000. The Lotus Evora 400 is a special sports car that can keep up with a Porsche 911 Turbo on the Sydney Motorsport Park circuit, as it can be seen on a video from YouTube. In a high-speed chase, the power of the car isn't the only thing that matters. The maneuverability and the driver are also important, not to mention the size of the car if the chase takes place in the suburbs or on really narrow streets as the one with the Mustang from above. It's a nice sports car that can be easily driven and can manage to outrun the police, but it needs an experienced driver and not a chaotic one.

2 2018 Ford Mustang

via ford.com

According to Car and Driver, the 1987-1993 Ford Mustang could've been bought with only two types of engines: the 2.3-liter inline-four and the torquey 5.0, which was, in fact, a 4.9-liter V8. The 2018 edition is also offered with two types of engines, despite the fact that it has a naturally aspired 3.7-liter V6 until now. The new model also comes with a 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine and the well-known but upgraded in the meantime naturally aspired 5.0-liter Coyote V8. During the 25 years that have passed, the engines were modified to deliver more power and more torque—the 1993 4.9-liter V8 had 205 horsepower with a torque of 275 lb-ft, while the new base EcoBoost model has 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque, not to mention the impressive 5.0-liter V8 that delivers 460 horsepower and a torque of 420 lb-ft. The amount of power of this muscle sports car was evident in a high-speed police chase at the beginning of this year. The Ford Mustang made its way on the freeway with 100 mph. The driver was caught only because he chose to drive on some narrow residential area streets where he couldn't gain more speed.

1 2018 Dodge Challenger 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker

via victoriadodge.com

There have passed so many years from the unveiling of the first Dodge Challenger in 1959, when the American producer wanted to sell a “value version” of its sedan Coronet, according to Wikipedia. This model has undergone a lot of transformations over the years to become what it is now: a very powerful muscle car that turns heads even if it's a series car without any mods involved. The 2018 Dodge Challenger 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker is a rear-wheel-drive model with a huge Hemi 6.4-liter V8 engine that offers 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque while also packing a locking rear differential. The new Challenger can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in only 4.5 seconds, and it can definitely outrun police cars. In a video found on YouTube, the 392 Hemi is driven on a road near the Texas border, in the South, more exactly. When the car starts to accelerate, the most amazing sound of the Hemi V8 can be heard, and the police vehicle can be seen shrinking in the rearview mirror. This can only mean that a Challenger 392 Hemi won't have problems in a high-speed police chase.
