Ford has announced plans to introduce the Police Interceptor Stealth Concept at SEMA.

Inspired by the legendary SR-71 Blackbird spy airplane, the Stealth features sleek and sinister styling. Notable tweaks include a revised grille, a lowered suspension, and 22-inch wheels.

Inside, the Stealth lives up to its name with a variety of hidden storage compartments which conceal a police radio and an onboard computer. According to Ford, "Unless you're supposed to be in the vehicle, you won't know where and how to find the compartments."

While the company is staying mum on what powers the concept, the standard Police Interceptor is available with a 280 HP (209 kW / 284 PS) 3.5-liter V6 as well as a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 with upwards of 365 HP (272 kW / 370 PS) and 350 lb-ft (474 Nm) of torque.

The Stealth isn't bound for production, but the normal PI will start hitting the streets in late 2011.
