Find out what gear is on the new Vauxhall Astra police car inside.


Vauxhall has released images of their latest police car based on the Vauxhall Astra.  The car, painted for London's Metropolitan Police, was developed in Millbrook, England, by the automaker's Special Vehicle Operations division.

Features on the car include a UDS black box system, to record system functions, a police radio unit, and a mobile data unit.  The usual emergency lighting is also in place.

"With the new Astra, Vauxhall is offering the UK's Police constabularies a vehicle which is not only superior dynamically to its predecessor but which also has the scope for much improved integration with the systems law enforcement demands," said Vauxhall vehicle conversion manager Dick Ellam.  "We are particularly proud that this integration allows the devices needed by the Police service to be mounted within the standard architecture of the car's interior."

Built in the U.K., the Vauxhall Astra serves in 54 different jurisdictions across Great Britain.
