Police Cars

Miami Vice Daytona Spyder Sports CarMiami Vice Ferraris - Detective James "Sonny" Crockett (Don Johnson) appeared on the police drama MIAMI VICE/NBC/1984-89. Working undercover for Miami's vice-squad narcotics division, Sonny was issued a fancy black Ferrari  365/GTB/4 Daytona Spyder sports car convertible (model year 1968-1974) with beige leather interior.  The series car (Florida license: ZAQ178) was actually a kit car with a fiberglass body and Corvette chassis.

In 1986, on episode No. 45 "When Irish Eyes Are Crying" while buying illegal munitions, Sonny asked the gunrunners if the six-year-old explosives were still potent. Picking up a shoulder rocket launcher, the gunrunner aimed at Sonny's $150,000 car and blew it to pieces.Miami Vice White Testarossa Ferrari Eventually his superiors reissued Sonny a $135,000 Ferrari Testarossa (Florida license plate: ATF00M). Red was the standard color for that model (Testarossa is Italian for "red-head") but Sonny's car was painted white. It had a top speed of 183 m.p.h. Sonny's partner, Detective Ricardo "Rico" Tubbs (Philip Michael Thomas) drove a blue-gray 1963 Fleetwood Cadillac DeVille convertible.

Their fellow officers Det. Larry Zito (John Diehl) and Det. Stan Switek (Michael Talbott) drove a 1960s Ford Van surveillance vehicle called "The Bug Van" (because it had a big bug on the roof).
