The Chevrolet Caprice Police Patrol Vehicle (PPV), based on the same Holden chassis as the now-defunct Pontiac G8, was revealed last fall, but today, a leaked document shows off the plainclothes version: the Police Detective.

Sporting regular street-car looks but enhanced police-specific interior elements, the Police Detective gives us a glimpse of the Caprice that should have been but never was. Imagine this face butched up a bit and fitted with the internals of the Pontiac G8 GXP, badged as a Caprice SS, and you'll feel our pain.

Instead, the Caprice will be sold only to law enforcement as GM's bid to outdo the new Ford Taurus Police Interceptor. Without available all-wheel drive, the lack of a turbocharged V-6, and slightly less intimidating looks, the Caprice may have its work cut out for it--especially in Detective trim.
