The police car was used by Reese and Foley to transport Jennifer Parker, whom they had found in the alleyway where Dr. Emmett Brown hid her temporarily, back to the McFly residence in Hilldale after they had verified her identity with an identa-pad.
The vehicle was fitted with a high speed, flight ready quartz windshield; and a quad W12, 650 cubic inch block engine with fusion booster thrusters for pursuit and stealth operation. It was capable of 307 m.p.h. on the ground, while its airspeed was 250 knots in standard mode, and 475 knots with additional thruster lock.
