I was driving down Jalan Tun Razak leading into the SMART tunnel yesterday, when a white car to my left signalled and wanted to cross into my lane. Seeing that they were cops, I decided to just let them slide in before me. That was when I noticed that there was something odd about the police car. Turns out that they were driving a kitted out Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X! That surprised me as I had always thought that our local cops drove only Proton cars. I guess that I was wrong.
I think that the present crop of Mitsubishi Lancers/Evos are very mean looking cars and will work very well as police cars. They look extremely aggressive like tigers which are just ready to pounce, befitting the image of the police force. Obviously, these cars are also technically superior to the previous Proton cars driven by the police. I just cannot fathom who actually drives these mean machines. The regular beat cops are still driving regular Protons. I guess that there must be some sort of special group of people given to drive these fast cars.
I know that these cars are extremely mean as I have been given the stare down on our North-South Expressway more than once by these machines. They seem to handle really well at high speeds too, which I think is essential. Kudos to the cops for choosing the Lancer Evo.
