2011 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor
Wherever you are in America or the world even, you have to keep an eye out for those sneaky Crown Vics. They’re everywhere, hiding in trees, neighborhoods, parking lots, any place unnoticeable in order to catch you speeding. Even I now drive in fear when I see these cruisers cruise behind my BMW in real life. However, in NFS World, it’s much scarier. How? Take a cop car and give it the nitrous strength of a 911 GT3 RS and the handling of a ‘69 BOSS 302. That’s the Crown Vic Police Interceptor.
This is no granny car anymore. It looks brilliant, majestic really. It’s a symbol of American justice and order on those busy freeways. Also, paint it all black and at night, it hides in plain sight. Then, once you see a speeder, BOOM, catch up to him and turn your lights on. It’s the best feeling. Anyway, performance wise, I’m not kidding. Even though it comes with nothing (no street-tuned performance), with a top speed of 156 MPH, that nitrous is very strong, so perfect launches with the right parts and the right racing skills is a cinch. In fact, fully tuned, you should be hitting 221 MPH with the nitrous topped out. Handling? It feels like a mixture of the BOSS 302 and the El Camino SS, which is good because those were the best muscles when they came out. Once you drive the Crown Vic though, you’ll just put both of them aside. It grips, you can keep it in the lines if you’re precise, it wobbles a bit, but not stupidly like a Ford GT or Charger SRT8. It’s an El Camino SS wobble, where it will find its way and change direction just as well. It’s also ballistically fast like the 1-Series M Coupe and, get this, also much stronger than those two bonkers SUVs.
Drew did note that this is the first cop juggernaut car, but when I checked the skill workshop to see if the Juggernaut skill was locked in place there, I didn’t really see anything. Just 5 empty spaces. However, when changing car, the icon was there below it’s name. Strange, huh? Also, even though it’s fast, it’s not as grippy as the 1-Series M Coupe. It has it’s limits so during really tight turns, you’re gonna have to brake a bit more. Also, I understand this whole Undercover thing might be fun, but it’s more fun with sirens to be honest. I know they’re exclusive to the SRT-10 ACR ELITE Cop, but c’mon. This is the Crown Victoria Police Interceptor. It has to have these things or it just feels incomplete. Since they didn’t add that, I’d thought they’d add at least a lightbar, but nope, didn’t add that either. So, it’s basically what we’ve been getting with these tuned cop cars, but on a standard model.
Should You Buy It?
Definitely, especially if you’re a muscle fan and a lover of the Crown Victoria. Although if you’re a serious racer and have an 1-Series M Coupe, you might wanna keep that and save you’re top-up money. But, honestly speaking, this is the best cop car that has come out all year. Many might say, “No, the Viper ACR ELITE Car is the best”. It’s the best looking, but in the corners and as a driver’s car, it’s rubbish. This has strong nitrous, dependable handling, brilliant brawn, and is force to reckon with against speeders and hackers of the lot. It’s not the best Tier 2 we’ve seen this month, but I’d definitely give this car the best cop car of the year award if, of course, Dodge, Chevy, or Carbon Motors have anything to say about it. However I suspect Charger SRT8 lovers might be a little mad. “You make this car go like rocket, yet Charger SRT8 handles like Boat?!? Y U DO THAT BB? YYY?” or something like that.
The SRT Viper ACR, boasting an 8.4l V10, cranking out 600hp and 560ft lbs of twist in stock trim, has been completely reworked to deal with the high power and high speeds required for pursuits.
The front mount intercooler is visible in the gaping maw of a front bumper while the hood bulge has increased in size to allow for the additional plumbing of a forced induction system. New twin tipped, side exit exhausts have been added to expel the hot gases and spit flame on the over run and a beefed up transmission puts the pursuit power to the ground through the massive rear wheels. There are carbon fiber splitters and winglets on the front bumper and side skirts while front and rear fenders have been extended out to allow the fitment of larger tires/wheels.
The rear diffuser has been modified to include venting for the rear brakes and differential, as well as to allow flow through from beneath the car. The lower section of the rear bumper is in carbon fiber and the steel bumpers in the diffuser are integrated to ward off rear impacts.
For the first time ever, a player will have access to a fully functional, roof mounted light bar. Additional police lighting has been added, with a red flasher in the lower section of the rear bumper. A set of large integrated bull bars has been built into the design of the front bumper, and directly mounted to the chassis for added ramming strength. Furthermore, we’ve added red/blue flashers in the front bumper opening, the bull bars, and the front fenders to alert your perpetrator to your presence. Large yellow fog lamps have also been added to the front fascia for added visibility in poor conditions. In addition, the interior will feature upgrades as well, such as the police spec laptop.
But that’s not all, we’ve also added a fully functional police siren so you can put fear in the minds of everyone you chase down!
Bold exterior styling, fear inducing sirens, groundshaking and tire-smoking, this Elite Cop Car simply dominates! Get yours today in the Car Dealer!

2011 Dodge Viper SRT-10 ACR “ELITE” Edition
So, in terms of ELITE categories, first there was the Tier 3 Exotic, then the Tier 2 Muscle, then the Tier 1 Tuner. After the Eclipse came out, I thought they had covered the ELITES as a whole. Well, I guess I thought wrong. The Viper ACR arrives in NFS World as an ELITE Police Interceptor and as of now it’s the best police car we’ve had on the force. However, those thinking that this is a pick-up-and-go car might want to think otherwise.
To be honest, I thought this car was gonna be 30000 SB with the added cop material and the lights and sirens. Ah, well. Anyway, this is the first special edition car with Pro-Tuned parts from Medion. So the race-tuned parts from Scion wasn’t a glitch. EA is pressing forward now. No more street-tuned stocks. Now, new cars coming will be either race-tuned or pro-tuned for your liking. Anyway, pro-tuned this interceptor can hit 227 MPH making it quite fast even for its stats. It also looks rather nice, in an epic way. Taking one good look at it, I thought they combined the Viper ACR with a Rhino and Cross’s Corvette from Most Wanted all in one. It’s aggressive yet sane at some angles. I love the way to managed to leave some things a bit stock. The rear wing, for instance isn’t enormous. It fits the width of the car. The car is also so detailed as well. Vinod and Mike Hayes did a good job designing this one really. Many stock Viper fans might disagree, but there’s my stance there. This is the best cop car in the game as well. I mean, c’mon? Lightbars? Light-up bull bars? Wing lights? Side Lights? Flashing Headlights? And for God’s sake, this cop has working sirens. It’s taken the devs over many useless cop cars to finally develop a brilliant functioning one. Also, comparing this to the old Viper, it’s 10x better than it. It doesn’t wobble about or steer like a boat. It’s not sluggish in the gear changes either. It has good grip and accelerates like a proper muscle snake. The 8.4-liter V10 also sounds ballistic when you’re revving it up to 6200 RPMs on the straights.
Unlike the other 3 ELITES, this one does not have cosmic nitrous. Once, your launch nitrous has finished, you’re doing 140 MPH instead of 190. So, in terms of fastest cop, that crown still goes to the 911 GT3 RS. In the corners, the track bug cop from seacrest county is better there as well. Now, when I say better, I mean easier, 10x easier. The Viper is by far the hardest car to handle in this game. Don’t get me wrong, it grips and is far better than the old muscles, but this thing has a mind of its own really. At some points, it grips, at others, it drifts. Brakes are good, but whenever it feels like it, they lock up the wheels, and you start drifting. This car won’t fishtail at certain corners, but if you drive it like a child, you will end up with your face in a wall. Everything about this car, driver wise, you have to time just right. GamerStig and I even had trouble taking this down Mission Street, partly because this is a wild animal, and mostly because Traffic is insanely stupid. Also, even though the car looks good, and wheels are alright, them sticking out like that is a bit freaky. If you look at them from the front or back of the car, it’s as if giant metallic spiders have taken the place of the wheel. It’s actually quite scary.
Should You Buy It?
Yes, if you want an epic siren blaring, light-up cop car. Yes, if you want a serious driving challenge in the world of Need For Speed. No, if you want to keep things easy and have an M1 Procar, Corvette ZR1, 911 GT3 RS, or a CCX ELITE in your garage. Yeah. I said it. CCX ELITE. This car is harder than the Swedish Monster. Plainly, this car is not for keyboard users. It’s for those who pro it up and have accurate joystick or driving wheels. To be honest, this car doesn’t really fit my style of driving. I’m more of a car that just gets on with it in an exciting way, like my Murcie Roadster. This is good, but not perfect. I admit. I did manage to beat some M1s today with this handling like it is. And if you find yourself in the spot of beating M1s, it’s not because your terrible and they’re worse than you. No. It’s because you are a true ELITE driver and they envy you. This is the first true ELITE car in this: insanely expensive, insanely flamboyant in design, insanely fast, and insanely hard to handle. But, if you can handle that insane handling and win races with it, then you have the audacity to call yourselves an ELITE. Again, many of you might have different opinions, but this is mine, and I say, that this is car is good.
Another 1-on-1 battle this. The Supra, now buffed and more powerful than ever, has been surprising the lot in the Tier 2s we have today. But, is it quick enough to blow off Godzilla: the Skyline GT-R R34? Well, it’s the Raven vs. the Swedish Cop Car today as we put these cars head to head three times to determine a winner. Check out this epic JDM Tier 2 battle.
