Car fans have often seen the type of car used in a high speed chase as an important part of the classic police drama and it is something that has really increased the popularity of certain models over the years.
Now Top Gear has asked 1000 British adults to rank their most iconic TV police cars from their favorite shows over the years.
At the top of the charts was the Jaguar Mark 2, used by Morse in the famous TV series Inspector Morse, closely followed by Gene Hunt’s Audi Quattro, who has become immortal over the years through his appearance in Ashes to Ashes.
In third place was the Ferrari 308 GTS used by Thomas Magnum in Magnum PI followed by Ray Doyle’s Ford Capris used in The Professionals. Rounding out the top five was the police car Ford Gran Torino, used by Dave Starsky in the hit American TV action series Starsky and Hutch of the 1970s.
