RALEIGH, N.C. – At least one sheriff's deputy in North Carolina won't have any trouble catching speeders. Multiple media outlets reported Wednesday that the Wake County Sheriff's Department has a Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Chevrolet said the car has a top track speed of 198 mph, with a base sticker price of $74,875. Its V8 racing engine generates 505 horsepower.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Phyllis Stevens said the car didn't cost the county any money since it was seized from a drug dealer.

Wake County isn't the first to used souped up cars.

Former Davidson County Sheriff Gerald Hege once had a Chevrolet Impala SS with a Corvette engine

Former Forsyth County Sheriff Ron Barker used several Camaro Z28s for traffic enforcement.

This Corvette is 100% real. I passed it pulling an SUV over Tuesday on 540 just off Capital Blvd.
It is a new Z06 , all BLACK w/ dark tinted windows and black rims. It's nasty looking!
But in this economic time...and when I have to hear in the news that North Carolina has cut back on hiring new troopers and officers. It begs to question why the hell they need to spend $75,000 on something so unnecessary!?
Seems to be a publicity issue. Unfortunately its a publicity issue that can run down just about any vehicle out on the road. :moon:

The corvette in question is black, tinted windows and trolls around 540 and I-40. Know this first hand because it pulled a Chevy 2500 that was tailgaiting me last week on 540. I pulled away from the truck just a little :whistle:, then moved over some lanes, saw the corvette back there, did not think anything of it until it pulled the truck. Looked to be a brand new model.
