The Guardia Civil is the Spanish gendarmerie. It has foreign peace-keeping missions and maintains military status and is the equivalent of a federal military-status police force. As a police force, the Guardia Civil is comparable today to the French Gendarmerie, the Italian Carabinieri and the Dutch Royal Marechaussee as it is part of the European Gendarmerie. The Guardia Civil uses as its leading emblem the motto "El honor es mi divisa" (Honour is my emblem) stressing its esprit de corps and pointing out the importance of honour. Their precincts are called "casa cuartel" (barrack-house) and, like other military garrisons in Spain, they appear under the motto "Todo por la patria" (Everything for the Fatherland).

Includes exciting features: siren and flashing roof lights plus front and rear lights. Magnatraction is included in the side-winder motor chassis. Quick-change braid plate fitted as standard as is the DPR facility for quick conversion to Scalextric Digital.

That's the uniform!!!!
I don't believe it!

Nice car though. Presumably there is a large body of collectors for international police cars. Why else?

Actually a 159 in Guardia di Finanza colours would appeal to me. I've often fantasised about a race between the Carabinieri, Polizia, Guardia di Finanza, Pronto Soccorso (ambulance service), and Vigili del Fuoco (fire service). What fun that would be!
Imagine all the blue lights flashing and sirens wailing! Pace car? A black Ferrari, on fire, with one of the robbers shot in the arm.

Much like your post then.

Are you going to elaborate at all?

Not quite there but I did chase an armoured Securicor Van through the City of London once.

I'm due to be getting some, but not advertising the fact until they are actually in my hands!
