2010 SEMA Show: Stealth Ford Police Interceptor Concept is ready to catch criminals

Article by Christian A., on November 4, 2010

Visitors of the 2010 SEMA Show will get to see a Police Interceptor concept from Ford designer Melvin Betacourt. To achieve its more purposeful, stealthy appearance, the car was made to be an inch lower than the regular Interceptors currently used by the US Police forces.

To give the illusion of width, Betacourt installed special 22-inch wheels with a staggered rim. The center of the rim is glossy black while the lip is chrome.

Betancourt describes the new concept to have a “racy, hot rod look” but with a feeling of “sinister and stealthy.” His approach is called “there, but not there”, inspired by the SR-71 Blackbird stealth aircraft.

The police car’s exterior has a solid black color for that stealthy appearance. And unless the lights are turned on, the lights under the mesh grille aren’t visible. In line with its SR-71 theme, the designer tinted the windows and smoked the stop lights.

For a stronger appearance, a new spoiler was added to the back of the car.It’s a vehicle that exudes power – and it should.

The car is powered by a .5-liter V6 engine delivering at least 280 horsepower and E85 compatibility, but can also be equipped with a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged, direct-injection EcoBoost V6 engine which delivers 365 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque across a broad rpm range.
