14 police patrol cars to be exhibited at Audi museum mobile

The Audi museum mobile in Ingolstadt will be the venue of the “police raid” special exhibition which will include no less than 14 historic police cars. It will be opened between April 10 and August 30 this year and will include a 1964 NSU Prinz 4 as well as a 1963 DKW 1000 S which was actually used by the Münster highway patrol. The oldest vehicle exhibited is going to be a Horch 400 police squad car from 1940.

The list goes on with models such as the 1949 Volkswagen Typ 18 A and a 1951 Hanomag L 28 GruKW (“Gruppenkraftwagen,” in English: group car). There’s also a BMW 501 which will be familiar to those who saw the 1960s TV series “Funkstreife Isar 12”. Also included in the special exhibition at the Audi museum mobile is a 1964 Porsche 356 used in highway patrol, along with a 1971 Audi 100 (C1).

There’s also a 1983 Wartburg 353 and an Audi 80 (B4) produced locally in Ingolstadt. Visitors will also have the possibility to check out an Audi A6 (C4) as well as more recent models such as the 2005 Audi A4 Avant and a Lamborghini Gallardo Polizia which is actually one of the quickest police cars in the world. Last but not least, a 2009 Volkswagen Scirocco painted in blue-silver will also be there and even though it wasn’t used for police service, the coupe was actually created for the safety initiative of a tuning club.
