Black Saab 95 (with those horrible headlights) that was VERY hard to spot, even with the sirens and lights on it was still pretty hard to spot how they'd hidden everything.

TVP have the Vectra and some Omegas still as unmarked i think.

For training we have BMW, Saab, Ford i think as unmarked.

I fully believe in the urban myth porsches but I saw one about 6 months that had given someone the pull on the M4.

AFAIK TVP had intel forwarded to them about it as it was not too far from Reading Porker dealership. Possibly Porker mechanics playing silly buggers or someone wanting to play cops and robbers that day.

Secret squirrels in London run unmarked and de-badged M5's at the moment - all dark blue or black.

If one of those pulls you over, I'd suggest no sudden moves... and hide the turban! eek

I spotted a dark blue 996 C4S last summer in Reading, A33 heading towards M4. Kojak light and everything! Driver wearing Police uniform.

Possibly the same car? (They can't have two the bastards!)

Certainly not Hampshire's AFAIK. Ours are Skoda Octavias. There are a few other unmarked cars kicking about which could potentially pull someone over. E.g. we have an Omega 3.2L but it's not actually an RPU car and has no speed detection equipment.
