The VW Beetle is one of the definitive cars of the 20th century. Since over 22 million of them were sold, it is logical that people use it for numerous purposes. One of them is as a police car. In Germany and many other European countries, the VW Beetle has been a legitimate patrol car for many years.
It may not have won any high-speed pursuits or proven itself on the Autobahn. But for patrol work and as an urban police car, the VW Beetle was more than appropriate. Its look is no doubt an iconic and intriguing one.
