The Carbon Motors E7 is a concept car that was meant to be a new purpose-built police car built by the Carbon Motors Corporation. The car was built in response to the need for a new purpose built police car to replace existing police cars such as the Ford Crown Victoria.
The prototype concept model was first revealed in 2008. Deliveries of this car were expected by 2012 and it was powered by a BMW diesel engine. This car had everything that a cop dreams of already built-in, as opposed to having after-market equipment installed.
When the car was retired it was to be returned to the factory or sold to another agency, instead of to the public. This car was supposed to compete with the Chevrolet Caprice, Chevrolet Impala, Dodge Charger and the Ford Police Interceptor in the police market. The E7 never entered production along with the TX7 van concept due to Carbon Motors folding in 2013.
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010)
As expected for a purpose-built police car concept, it has amazing offensive capabilities and is almost perfect for vehicular combat, returning above average durability. It also offers the highest top speed in its class, due in part to the SCPD's vehicle tuning. The main downsides are in its sub-par acceleration, and its average handling with a steering response that is somewhat delayed.
