Ford Taurus Police Interceptor Stealth Sema Concept

The SEMA Show hosted the debut of an interestingly specialized stealth concept version for the Ford's Police Interceptor, which is both stylish and sinister, offering many high-tech surprises. The model was developed under the close supervising of Ford designer Melvin Betancourt by using the muscular stance and strong lines of the Ford Police Interceptor sedan as a base, aiming to provide it with a mysterious high-tech look.
Betancourt reported to the press that he received nothing but perfect canvas from this car. As the Police Interceptor sedan hit the markets in March, then followed by a utility version in September, they will both have a simultaneous debut when the Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor production ceases at the end of 2011.
What Betancourt actually did was to lower the body and offer the impression of an added width with the center of the wheel finished in a glossy black and a chrome rim.
When customizing the vehicle, Betancourt was inspired by the imagery of the SR-71, which is the original stealth airplane.
The exterior of the Interceptor was finished in a solid black, featuring a mesh grille with a thicker metal, thus offering the impression of more depth, while the back of the car received an aggressive spoiler with bead lights which were painted in black, thus remaining unnoticed until the car is started. The windows are tinted and the taillights are smoked, undoubtedly appearing as a vehicle that suggests power. It is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 280hp with an interior that impresses with a radio hidden inside the console and a glove box with a secret space destined for hiding weapons. The car is unique,revealing some stylish touches that, together, create this overall image of a sinister look.
