This Corvette Z06 Police Car Will Forever Be Known as Coptimus Prime


Here’s a follow-up on last week’s story about the New Braunfels, Texas Police Department’s kids contest to help name their new Corvette Z06 police car. The department has announced a winning name submitted by Chandler Radtke. From this day forth, the car will be known as Coptimus Prime.

The new police car was donated to the police department after a large meth drug ring with ties to Mexican cartels was broken up by the DEA and Comal Country Metro Narcotics Task Force. The Corvette was a seized asset awarded to New Braunsfels following the conviction of its owner, Chase Freeman.


New Braunsfel PD says the Corvette is too high profile for use as an undercover or patrol car. It will be used for community outreach in local parades, school-related functions and other community events. Eventually, the 2007 Corvette Z06 will be sold at auction.

The department says the car has been wrapped in a police livery with the original orange metallic paint still intact. Seized assets will pay to maintain the car as well as outfit it for police service with lights and equipment. Let’s just hope they will be able to afford some Z06 sized rear tires.

You can check out the new crime fighting Corvette today at the Comal County Fair Parade.
