This 2016 Corvette Stingray was once owned by an Guatemala drug dealer named Manuel Felipe Arelanes Monroy akak “Ducati” but after his arrest in 2016, the car was seized by the country’s National Civil Police force known as the PNC and is now a Corvette police car!
Officials say the Corvette Stingray will be used for security around the La Aurora International Airport as well as conducting “night” patrols in different parts of the country.
The Corvette, which was originally Arctic White, was either painted or wrapped in the traditional Blue, White and Yellow livery of the PNC. Additional new features include the emergency light bar arcross the top as well as an interior radio for communication with headquarters.
The car was already wearing the Michelin tire stickers when it was seized and the cops decided to leave those on because Michelin tire stickers are cool no matter which country you’re from.
The Corvette was shown on display during a parade on Saturday commemorating the 20th anniversary of the National Civil Police force (PNC). The cost of the car was listed at 400,000 quetzales which converts to about $54,839.60 US dollars.
