Hankook puts tires on fastest police vehicle in the world

Hankook puts tires on fastest police vehicle in the world

Tune it! Safe! and Hankook presents the police Brabus

Neu-Isenburg, 14 November 2006. A tuned up police car has long established itself as a symbol of the Tune It! Safe! initiative. During the Essen Motor show (30 November – 10 December), the new Tune It! Safe! police vehicle in Brabus rocket design based on a Mercedes CLS will be presented. Just as with the predecessor vehicles, the fastest limousine in the world – it is over 360 km/h fast - is equipped with suitable Hankook brand tires. Hankook supports the initiative, founded over a year ago, for more tuning safety. The goal is to take action against illegal and unsafe vehicle customising with Germany-wide promotions.

The Brabus Rocket is intended solely to increase tuning safety and for real officers it will certainly just remain a dream. With this eye-catcher in the new blue-silver police look, it will

be easy for the Tune It! Safe! promotion, under the patronage of Federal Minister of Transport Tiefensee, to get a good start after the very successful first year. An optimal framework was selected with the presentation during the world's leading tuning exhibition (Hall 11/Stand 406). The Hankook Ventus S1 evo represents an additional eye catcher with the Brabus Monoblock-VI alloy wheels. The dimensions: VA 245/30ZR20, HA 285/25ZR20.

The initiative's tuned police vehicle stands for the close cooperation among public institutions, the tuning industry, the tuning enthusiasts and the tire manufacturer Hankook. Tune It! Safe! especially wants to inform young car drivers about potential hazards. They should be able to obtain support and information ( As a founding partner, along with financial support Hankook is donating its extensive expertise on the topic of tuning & tires. Furthermore, high-quality and safe ultra-high-performance tires will be offered specifically for this mutual target group that have a superior price/performance ratio so that one does not need to resort to low-quality products for financial reasons.
