Surprised this has been posted up by the Essex contingent yet;

 

2575785553_be141d57cb.jpg

 

Not exactly shite, but how cool is that!? My dad always goes on about them, weren't in service for long, if at all, after the guys testing one crashed it and killed themselves. Error.

 

One of 2 wasn't it?  One RS200 went to Herts Police and this one to Essex.  That could be Ford Nutter Folklore though

 

The shots were taken in 1986.  Ford publicity recreated the shot 30 years later

 

The car chassis #122 wearing C829FHK here was sold privately in 1987, repaired put back on the road and apparently still with that owner, in storage.

 

A wider shot of the classic photo

Relatively recently, over on Argentina, the Policía Federal and Gendarmería Nacional replaced their IKA Torinos and Ford Falcons...

Our local police force just bought a load of those monstrosities as pool cars... O tempora, o mores !

 

I was in a queue due to an accident on the M62 somewhere near Manchester and the first responder turned up in one of these. I'm not sure I would want to depend upon an electric vehicle of fixed range and no easy means to 'fuel' up for emergency response work.
