Hyundai's Genesis sedan is a vehicle of many talents; effortless highway cruiser, stoplight drag race sleeper and plush transporter of discrete well-to-do types. Now you can add “Police Interceptor” to the list.

With its snazzy blue and gold livery and copious lighting equipment, the Genesis doesn't have the same intimidation factor as, say, a black and white Crown Vic, but the 290 horsepower V6 and 375 horsepower V8 mean that the Genesis is significantly faster than the venerable Ford.

The Genesis police car is a cool idea, but in a densely populated country where traffic moves at a snails pace, its hard to see the logic of an enormous, gas guzzling V8 sedan. A Genesis Coupe, with its 2.0L turbo four-banger is the more sensible (and cooler) choice.

Don't want to be disrespectful here but I would hardly call the Genesis V8 a gas guzzler. In fact, it gets a good bit better mileage per gallon than the Crown Vic.

I recently got 30.5 mpg in my 2009 V8 on a trip from Oklahoma to Georgia. That was on real gasoline, no ethanol. With the ethanol blend 27 is about the best I can do.
