Default 2012 Caprice PPV

So i finally found one sitting at an upfitters facility waiting to get it'* lights and fun stuff added. it had the steering wheel of the G8 with radio controls, navigation head unit, and the later center console that moved the shifter all the way to the left. didn't get any interior shot cause my camera acted up. but here are some exterior shots. since it was inbetween 2 vics couldn't get the best side shots of it.

6.0L V8, 18" steelies, stickered at $32,380

wouldnt want to try to outrun that, then again maybe thats the point. most of the cars built today would outrun a crown vic.

i see that all the time on the highways here, its just plastic to protect the paint, im guessing this one was in the spot above the cab on the truck where all of the topside is exposed. (picture it backed up onto the truck looking like it drove up the hood onto the roof)

Low profile tires on steel rims looks funny.

I like the way it looks, and, I've also read that a civilian version (read general public) will be built.
