Based on the all-new Atom 3.5R, this police car just might be the coolest yet. It comes equipped with a Honda-sourced 2.0L, 4-cylinder Civic Type R engine that generates 350-horsepower, enabling it to go from 0-60mph in just 2.6-seconds.

This special model was created specially for the Somerset and Avon Constabulary to promote motorcycle safety. Continue reading for two videos of the Atom 3.5R and more information.
“It’s not that much more power than the regular Atom 3.5 (which has 310 hp), but given its low weight plus the extra performance components it gains, the difference should be noticeable. Keeping drivers out of the grass are Khumo high-performance tires and adjustable dampers that no longer have remote reserviors but are reportedly better. The gearbox is also different to that in the regular 3.5; it�s the same Sadev six-speed sequential that used in the crazy Atom V8,” reports Car Scoops.
