    I might ad, this video is probably useless if you don't have sound. I still can't get over the cops escorting the Gumball team

    Yeh this is a good video, only in italy I reckon with a dash of rich crazy drivers from america.... this has been around for a while but just shows you what alot of money and some good cars can get you... http://www.teampolizei.com/

    Back story: During the Italian leg of the Gumball 3000 rally in Europe this past May, Alex Roy, Jalopnik‚s road-rally correspondent, lead pilot of Team Polizei and king of all media, asked a few Italian police officers (in an Alfa Romeo 145) where they could find a gas station. What followed may be the most insane Gumball 3000 incident ever caught on video.

    Alex and crew ended up getting a high-speed escort from Florence‚s Piazza Michaelangelo, a chase that that unwound through the twisties of Viale Michelangelo, and out to the A1 autostrada, by the „coolest ****ing cops in the world,‰ according to Roy. According to the English chick in the back seat, who provides color commentary, the escort driver was „one mad fooker.‰ And yes, the whole incident was caught on tape. It‚s 69MBs, but you definitely have time to download this one ˜ trust us.

    Thats insane!

    I'm particularly impressed with the courtesy of the Italian drivers though. Where I sit at work I over look the Miller St/Pac Hwy intersection in North Sydney, and I often stare in disbelief at the ignorance of drivers when there is an emergency vehicle approaching.

    Interesting too, that the Italian police force use Subaru Legacy wagons
