Surely if God was willing anything they'd be willing that their main man on Earth wasn't going to get shot.

This is assuming there's no traffic, road blocks, spike belts, turns, pot holes, or gravel right?

Pretty recognizable but definitely the fastest.


Back when I was racing bikes this guy brought a modded out Black ZR1 Vette in to the shop. This thing had a kill switch for all running lights. He claimed to have eluded quite a bit.

Also saw a guy with a spring loaded license plate wired to his horn. This was for a bike, some people are idiots.

You're assuming you'll always be free of the chase at the moments you need to fill up, which is extremely unlikely you'd ever build that separation primarily because (as you clearly forgot) there are more cops than just those that you drove away from. You can't just stop for 20 minutes somewhere in a supercar. You also can't assume there's gas stations perfectly placed along your route.

If I had to choose a car, this would be it. You have speed, handling and a slim profile for tight spots.

Yeah, definitely has to be an older version where the car is still made out of steel.

Especially on normal urban surface streets where hitting a dip on a high speed chase may end the chase prematurely.

I like the car but I still think something larger like an Audi RS6 is a better option as it can take more of a beating.

Well there's at least one in California that's legal: http://www.andysatom.com/legal.html

Most states have a "kit car" caveat in their regulations. Probably have to jump through some flaming hoops and maybe even wait a year like this guy did, but it's possible.

Clarkson drives every insane car made and he said this one rips your face off. Holds to the top spot on their power lap list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...ower_Lap_Times. By over a second too which is a huge margin when you get up to the top times.

With the cars police has here in Quebec, would you even need a car able to take a beating? Because I think a 911 Turbo S is much faster than what they have and probably is better all around too.

Police here has Crown Vics and Chargers. (You probably know since you're from here).

If i'm not worrying about being recognized, I would pick a Ferrari 458 Italia, Buggati Veyron, Corvette ZR1, or a '68 Camaro.
