Cops at the New Braunfels police department in Texas are surely fighting over the keys to the precinct’s newest ride: A 2007 Corvette C6 Z06.
Funny enough, the LS7-powered, 505 hp beast used to belong to a drug dealer, but was seized during a DEA raid. The vehicle was then awarded to the New Braunfels PD for its help in taking down the crime ring.
But the story doesn’t end there. The department soon decided the Z06, like any chase vehicle worth its salt, needed a name and it took to Facebook for some help. Entries were open to kids 8-16 and the department received all sorts of appropriate names, like: Chase, Optimus Crime, Lightning McCrime, Blue, Black Fury, Taken, The Dark Knight, Blazer, and so on.
Now, the Corvette has its official name, and will make its official debut in the Comal County Fair Parade this Friday. Ladies and gents meet Coptimus Prime, the newest member of the New Braunfels PD. Hopefully the PD can get some some proper Z06 wheels on there in time for the parade.
Have a look at the entry page here and then let us know what name you’d have chosen for the seized Z06.
