Ford revealed today the Police Interceptor Stealth Concept, a new car that will be revealed to the public tomorrow, at the 2010 SEMA Show. As expected, the car is based on the Ford Police Interceptor sedan, but was developed as a customized undercover stealth version that’s both stylish and full of high-tech surprises.
Apparently, the SR-71 Blackbird airplane was used by Ford designer Melvin Betancourt in order to design this car.
Just like the plane, the car features a solid black paint finish, as well as lights designed to be inconspicuous, with the surrounding area painted black so they blend in until illuminated.
The car received an aggressive new front spoiler with bead lights painted black so they remain unnoticed until the car is started. In addition, the taillights are smoked, the windows tinted. The design of the car is completed by the special 22-inch wheels.
Under the hood we find a 3.5-liter V6 engine delivering at least 280 horsepower, which means that this engine is 25 percent more efficient than the 4.6-liter single-overhead-cam V8 offered in the current Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor.
Also, the car can be equipped with a more powerful 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged, direct-injection EcoBoost V6 engine delivering at least 365 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque. That strength complements the mystery inside the revamped interior of the stealth version.
