Police in the Czech Republic had a good idea for high-powered sports cars they take off criminals. They turned a criminal's Ferrari into a patrol car. The Ferrari is now part of the Czech Police's fleet of cars. It is almost brand new. It only had 1,900 km on the clock. The car usually sells for around $275,000. The police spent around $14,000 to turn it into a patrol car. It was originally red, but the police repainted it yellow and blue. These are the colours of police cars in Czechia. They also gave it fluorescent stripes, cameras, a radio, a siren, and flashing lights on the roof.

The police will use the Ferrari in high-speed chases. They will try to catch joyriders on the roads. They will also chase drivers who join illegal road races. The Ferrari will be used against some of the country's "most aggressive" drivers. Czechia police seize many cars from criminals every year. They sell most of them and give the money to 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's supercars. Dubai police get to drive Lamborghinis, Bugattis and an Aston Martin to keep their roads safer.
