Don't know if anyone has seen this...

An unnamed Northern Virginia police agency has apparently scored itself a Nissan GT-R to use as a pursuit vehicle. Call it the last of the V6 Interceptors.

A company by the name of EVI Corporation spends its days outfitting law enforcement vehicles with all of the necessary electronics to track down baddies, and the company recently released a video showing a GT-R boasting a full range of blue and red flashers as well as the standard strobe treatment for both the headlights and taillights. Now, we've seen agencies snag high-dollar vehicles from drug kingpins and other seedy characters in the past, but this is something different.

According to the word kicking around the web, this GT-R showed up at EVI with a mere 13 miles on the clock, meaning its as fresh as a fallen snow. The only question is; which law-enforcement agency in the area (if any) saved up enough pennies to buy itself a Nissan GT-R for pursuit or public relations duty? EVI isn't saying for obvious reasons, but we're guessing it won't be too long before this machine gets its cover blown. Hit the jump for a video of the car with its lights blazing

That is rather ingenious on the part of the cops; imagine how many people they could bust trying to race them? The car would pay for itself in no time; sign me up for that duty.

I have seen police 911 Turbos overseas, but never expected something like this in the states.

This sounds kinda far fetched. Forget the initial cost of the car the maintenance can't be justified for a police department when there are plenty of other vehicles they could use for highway pursuit.

Who has seen a GTR with only 13 miles? Most have atleast 25 by the time they hit dealers.

Maybe Nissan or a dealer gave it to them for publicity? Lamborghini donated the Gallardo (and the second one after they wrecked the first) that the Italian police use. I can't imagine an elected official (councilman, police chief, etc.) signing off on a $90k car.

it's the 2012 version on top of that! I would not mind being a cop if I get to drive a GT-R for work and get paid for it

I'll be the first to say bs on this story.....many of our local gov'ts are bankrupt so I can't see how a poilce dept gets away with spending $100K on a police car...the pic of the car is a Black GTR with a Blue light in the grill....it could be anyones car.....EVI doesn't even have a pic of it on their website and the logo at the bottom right of the pic is not the same logo as on the website.....and I highly doubt Nissan donated the vehicle....
