V10 340hp Crown Vic police cruiser.

from popularmechanics.com/

Law enforcement agencies are considering implementing this Crown Victoria as an Ultra-Pursuit highway patrol vehicle. Aside from the large tires, it looks mild mannered. But under the stock hood is a propane-fueled 6.8-liter V10. Highway patrolmen have been at a loss for a high-performance sedan since the 5.7-liter LT-1 Chevy Caprice ended production in 1996. Current Crown Vic police cruisers make do with a 235-hp 4.6-liter V8. Scott Alder Motorsports hopes law enforcement decision makers will find the power they've been missing in this V10 Crown Vic. The car, built by the prototyping company, is a '99 Crown Victoria P-71 Police Interceptor powered by the engine and transmission from a '99 F-250. Its been hunkered down with a firmer Vogtland suspension, Bilstein shocks and massive 255/50R17 tires. A low-restriction exhaust boosts horsepower to 340 and torque to 420 ft.-lb. Preliminary testing shows that this car will accelerate from 0 to 60 in the 6-second range. With a redesign for the Crown Victoria coming in 2003, a production-ready Ultra-Pursuit could be ready for 2004. Severe duty-performance testing on this prototype begins in a few months in California.
