Greenfield PD's Subaru STI on Display at Auto Show
The car donated by Schlossman Subaru has already made quite the splash in Greenfield, and is likely to turn heads at the auto show.
This one-of-a-kind car is on loan to the Greenfield Police Department for two more years, but it's off the street for the moment.
Instead of stopping speeders, the Subaru STI is on display at the Milwaukee Auto Show, which runs through Sunday at the Delta Center. The video above, from our media partners at WISN 12 News, has more about the car's appearance at the auto show.
Greenfield Patch has covered the Subaru squad car before, with a story about its donation and unveiling to the public in July.
The Subaru STI is a fully functional squad car with a police radio, sirens and all the standard safety features of a Subaru. Oh yeah, and it’s pretty fast, too. The 2012 four-door, all-wheel drive vehicle is equipped with 305 horsepower and turbo.
“It’s one of the fastest cars out there that the general public can buy,” Wentlandt said. “It’s not in the realm of a super car like a Lamborghini or Ferrari, but among very high-performance vehicles, the Subaru STI is right up there. Not that we’re out there drag-racing anybody.”
In addition to paying for the two-year courtesy lease, Schlossmann’s Subaru paid for the customized wrap and installation of the lights, radio and siren, all of which were also donated. The total value of the donation is estimated at $50,000, with zero cost to the department.
