Police in the Czech Republic have turned a criminal's Ferrari into a patrol car. The high-powered sports car is now part of the police's fleet of cars. It is almost brand new. It had only done 1,900 km. The car sells for $275,000. The police used $14,000 to turn it into a patrol car. They repainted it the yellow and blue police colours. They also gave it shiny stripes, cameras, a radio, a siren, and flashing lights on the roof.

The police will use the Ferrari in high-speed chases to catch joyriders. They will also chase drivers in illegal road races. The police will target the country's "most aggressive" drivers. The police take many cars from criminals. They sell most of them to help victims of traffic crimes. The Ferrari is the most luxurious to become a patrol car. Czechia has a long way to go to match Dubai. Police there get to drive Lamborghinis to keep their roads safer.
