Caprice-based police pursuit vehicle is fit for duty after beating Ford 'Interceptor' and other rivals in independent US testing.
Holden's Australian-made Chevrolet Caprice police car has scored a string of perfect 10s in an independent assessment of patrol cars by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
Police officers were asked to rank 16 different vehicles that car makers have specially tuned for law-enforcement duties, with the 6.0-litre V8 one of few vehicles tested to earn a run of clean sweeps.
