Carbon Motors finally released non-computer generated pictures of their E7 purpose-built police car, countering concerns that the vehicle was merely vaporware. The company has been claiming for at least a year now that the E7 will be the police car of the future but hasn't provided much in the way of proof. These photos appear not only to be real, but to also show a car similar to the computer illustrations, including the integrated push-bar and LED lights.
According to the company, it'll feature a turbodiesel engine and an aluminum spaceframe chassis. It'll also come equipped with license plate recognition, 360-degree exterior surveillance, shotgun mounts, backup cameras and forward-looking infrared. We're still not sure that this isn't vaporware, but having a working prototype is a step in the right direction. [Source: Carbon Motors]
