Ha ha ha ha. Now that's funny. It weighs 4000 lbs and that is without the police gear. It is NOT that fast, folks. z-06, gt-3, all would crush it. Heck I'd bet a standard vette would leave it. Vette's at 405 hp now and weigh about 3,200.

Just in time, with 5 dollar a gallon gas around the corner the police are buying the least fuel efficient cruisers on the market.

So glad my tax dollars are being put to good use

you guys better watch out the cops who drive the new chargers are !!!! especially the one who rides around on i-45 i know from a first hand experience... and let me say this they will arrest you without hesitation that includes charging you with a bs charge and will lie like crazy to try and make it stick. and in my case this can result in 2-5 state time..... so pull over immediately unless you wanna spend lots of money on lawyer fees that could buy you a new bike!!! lol

Read the traffic/transportation code John... we're exempt from EVERYTHING!

The only stipulation is that we drive with "due regard" for others' safety.

that isn't saying much.... they still get bad mileage and it mainly has to do with the air brake strapped to the roof of the car.

My neighborhood had the 1st one on Galveston County (supposedly). They said the same thing when they purchased it. It's kinda intimidating for the 20mph speed limit

But it wasn't any old police car. All black charger, with flat black/reflective words that said POLICE on the side. I mean you have to be at the exact right angle to even see the words on the car. As soon as he passed me I couldn't even see the words on the side anymore.

Coolest cop car I've seen in a while. Which PD's have those cars? Was he some sort of undercover? Maybe DPS?
Not undercover, just incognito to a degree. Those cars are pretty badass, HPD has them, and it's not until you get really close or the light hits the side at the perfect angle that you see "POLICE". I've only seen white ones downtown, pretty nifty.

If you are out I 10 towards Katy you need to watch out for Trooper Terry who drives a DPS charger....he'll write his own momma a ticket. As for all black...one of the Precinct's has all black Chargers. Can't remember which one though.

Oh ya...and thes cars are wicked fast...some of them are pushing 400 hp. So, if you wanna try to out run one...be my guest. I was involved in a chase along with a unit driving the Charger...and i can tell you that when that engine cranks up....that car is GOOOOOONE. Wicked fast.
i have a buddy thats a harris county boy he said te cargers they have dont have the big hemi in them there not that fast there like the impalas all look and no !
