FATAL 5 'Police unit'

Australia’s Police have received the keys to a Mercedes-AMG E43 that will represent the fatal 5 and used as a highway patrol car throughout the states. The AMG E43 sedan will replace the Ford falcon & holden commodore. New technology in the Mercedes allows for a safer experience on our Australian roads with new sensors and driving capabilities. It’s powered by a bi-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine, the E43 pushes out 396 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque and is fast enough to keep pace with most vehicles on the roads. Beyond being quite a performer, the E43 has been selected by Australian Police as the perfect car to highlight the importance of advanced safety systems in vehicles. Thanks to a suite of hardware, the current E-Class is capable of similar semi-autonomous driving to Tesla’a Autopilot system.  The ‘Fatal 5’ police cars all have a unique police wrap and personalised plates to match its menacing look.
