If you were planning a bank heist in Tokyo, you might want to have a rethink. Because the police in the Tochigi Prefecture are laser-focused on chasing down crims with uncompromising force.
And, get this, they’ve just taken delivery of a fresh new Lexus LC500 as a pursuit vehicle. Yes really!
If you’re unfamiliar with the model, it’s packing a whopping 2UR-GSE 5.0-litre V8 under the bonnet, all 471bhp of it, and it’s just about the scariest thing imaginable to see in your rear-view mirror with red lights ablaze.
So if you’ve really got to act all Ronnie Biggs, prepare an escape route and don’t expect an easy time of it.
