The cop cars of tomorrow will shoot drones, transform from four-wheelers into quadrocopters and fly high above the dystopian hellscape formerly known as the LA Basin. It's a brave new world desperately in need of new tools for the boys in blue, and that's exactly what six major automotive design studios brought to this year's LA Design Challenge.
For nine years running, the Los Angeles Auto Show has hosted a design competition where the auto industry's best and brightest envision the future of mobility. In years past, entrants were asked to create the next revolution in urban transport, stunt vehicles and even race cars. This year, the challenge was focused on the cop cars of 2025.
Here are this year's sci-fi submissions, a not-so-subtle blend of inspiration and insanity, with one winner crowned by a panel of automotive experts, law enforcement officers and daft futurists capable of embracing each automaker's vision while attempting to maintain some measure of reality.
