Chevy Caprice PPV test drive
This is a test drive of the 2011 Chevrolet Caprice police car. The car has tons of room, 0-60 in 6 seconds and tops out at 148,( top speed not tested). After about 50, 0-60-0 runs, I drove the car and it had zero brake fade. The car handles great and would run circles around a Crown Vic.
