Shelby GTS Police Interceptor Concept imagined

Shelby GTS Police Interceptor Concept

The Ford Mustang has a long history of serving as a police vehicle, most notably with the SSP (Special Service Package) Fox Body Mustangs built between 1982 and 1993. While Ford doesn’t produce a Mustang specifically for law enforcement today, that doesn’t stop local police departments from still using them for undercover duty. Perhaps our favorite Mustang cop car, though, is the Saleen S302 that played the part of “Barricade” in the movie Transformers.

Is there a place for a modern day Mustang police car package? Apparently the folks over at Shelby don’t think the idea is too far-fetched and have come up with a rendering of a vehicle they call the Shelby GTS Police Interceptor Concept. “Over the years we’ve had some police departments inquire about having Shelby make modifications to the Ford Mustang for pursuit purposes,” said Robert Lane of Shelby Performance Parts. No details are given about the performance specifications of the car – we’re imagining a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 under the hood – but the car comes complete with Highway Patrol graphics and the requisite law enforcement equipment including a lightbar, push bar and flood lights.

Would you like to see the Shelby GTS Police Interceptor made a reality or do speeders need more of a fighting chance? Let us know your thoughts below.

  • Mustangkid says:

    I saw a 11 or 12 gt that looked just like mine in Tennessee and if Shelby could do one for the departments I think that would work. I am a speeder but I will pull over when I am pursued. There are many irresponsible drivers out there with Lambos, Ferraris, Camaros, Corvettes, and Mustangs who try to outrun the police and should be pursued and taken off the road asap.

  • Enzo says:

    yea do it so we can all get arrested more easily.

  • Jbird says:

    The cops should have to use a 4 cylinder with about 80 hp.

  • Krich says:

    Why are cops spending so much money on these cars. Just buy a dodge charger or taurus. The average person would pull over if a prius had lights flashed them. It seems like a waste of money to me. I’d rather them buy a normal police car, and use the savings towards something else.
