The Coolest TV Cop Cars

1.3k votes 171 voters 3.5k views18 items

Cop cars on television are generally a whole lot cooler than their real life counterparts. TV police cars aren't just for routine traffic stops and donut runs, they've got to be ready for weekly high speed chases. More than that, cop cars on TV have to make the stars look cool. And that's what every ride on this list of the best TV police cars does.

Going by this list alone, the most popular makes of police car are (in order) Dodge, Ferrari, Plymouth and Pontiac. Granted, Ford also puts in a pretty strong showing on stage and screen - just not quite representative of the reality that about 80% of police cars ever sold wore the blue oval. 

But hey, that's reality, and the reality of police work is lots of slow cruising and paperwork.  So flash those lights and sirens, step on it, and vote up the best cop cars in TV history!
