Aussie police fail

Sydney’s finest get a new weapon in the fight against hairy-chested crime. It is an Alfa Mito. Oh

Alfa Romeo MiTo

The HSV Clubsport would be an excellent car for burly Australian policemen. As would a Ford Falcon GT. Even the V8 Maloo, that'd do.

But the Alfa Mito? Really, guys? The broad-shouldered law enforcement community in Sydney has just acquired a beige Mito. A fine car, undoubtedly, but one we fear will not strike sufficient fear into the hearts of hardened Aussies crim-types.

The New South Wales police say the Mito will be used in ‘community outreach and safety awareness programs', sadly denying locals the arresting spectacle of seeing the little Italian in hot pursuit of a joyridin' ute.

So, to our question of the day: what's the most unimposing police car you've seen round your way? Yeah, we're talking less scary than an Astra diesel, kids. 

Now share it...
