Foreign cars in the traffic police of the USSR

It was a rare thing to see a “foreign car” in the Soviet Union. Now imagine how rare  they were in the service of the traffic police and the Interior Ministry of the USSR!

These cars are official cars  have been driven in Moscow and its region.

In the posting, there are cars of brands like Volvo, BMW, Nissan, and of course Mercedes (although in fact, the range was wider, and there were a few more models of various production). And according to unconfirmed reports the traffic police of the USSR had 2 cars Porsche 911. I wonder whom they were going to pursue if all population had LADAs and Moskvichs with 80 horse power maximum?

BMW. For the first time, they began to appear during the Olympic Games in Moscow

BMW 5 Series in the E12 body

And here is the support of a cortege

Pay attention to the fuel hatch located in the ” stern ” of the car. Like on the old “Moskvich”. The car of 1971-1977 model.

And that’s your favorite “Mercedes”.

W123 – now it is almost a history and classics of the German automotive industry.

In such a car you can put even a drunk driver.

For what purpose they needed the representative of the American automotive industry – it is a mystery.

Volvo 240.


Dodge – a mobile laboratory of traffic police.

Inspectors arrived at the scene of an accident on the Volvo 740

Ghost “Porsche”. Where these cars are gone, and were they real?

    This would be more accurately called “Foreign Cars in Moscow Traffic Police. Every single picture has been taken in Moscow.
    Moscow got everything 100 times better than the rest of the country.
    Comparing to Moscow, the rest of the USSR was like USA and Columbia.
    Never you would see a foreign police car in provincial cities.
    In the city where I, even street cars were 10 times worse than the ones in Moscow. In Moscow, street cars were brand new Czechoslovakian Tatras, and in our city they were old half-broken steel coffins made probably in 1950s or so. To save on electricity, there were never heated in winter, and -15 was a standard average day temperature. They also never heated the buses, since the driver’s compartment was totally sealed from the passenger’s cabin, so the driver would only turn on heating for his compartment. In Moscow, the street cars were always heated well.

    They probably needed a large station wagon for certain jobs and it was cheaper to buy one from the US rather than build a Chaika or ZiL.
