The Hampton NH police department had a 4KQ about 10-12 years ago. It was
written up in Autoweek. The Boston area Audi dealers donated it or
arranged some deal. The article also stated that the police chief pulled
over a snowmobile that had been running down the road. The snowmobile
tried to get away by crossing a cornfield so the Chief just followed him.
That was his first bust in the quattro.
