The 2007 Dodge Charger Police Package

Get ready for the quickest and fastest police sedan around, the 2007 Dodge Charger Police Package, that’s sure to whip around most crime-doer butts. The vehicle is actually sold through your typical government bidding procedures.

The mean and athletic-looking sedan harbors a powerful engine gunning a 340-horsepower Hemi V8 incorporating a standard Electronic Stability Control mated to a five-speed automatic transmission that runs on optional plastic covers on the standard 18-inch steel wheels and rims. When in full throttle, the car will rocket to 60 mph in just 6.2 seconds, a speed that’s just enough for police chases. It also include two-way radios perfect for ranting out suspicious doings in the vicinity. The Charger police package is also available with a 250-hp, 3.5-liter V6 that’s quite cheap much to the delight of municipal police departments.

The sedan’s chassis has a modernized take on its toughened police car look. It ahs a contemporary and sporty outline that matches its sculpted waist. The slightly tail-in-air rake of the Charger makes this one of the most aggressive-looking squad cars of all time.

The Police Charger doesn’t have much design aesthetics since it’s just suited for doing a cop’s dirty speeding job. Only the holes lugged out of its A-pillars to fit twin spotlights and inside rear door handles and locks beyond this have been disabled and the 160 mph speedometer is certified for enforcement.

Instead of a console, the Cop Charger has a bracket, and the light bar and siren operate from the control panel below the public address microphone which has a radio-ready bay beneath it. The Charger’s unfamiliar face and a low-profile light bar should conceal the Dodge’s appearance at first glimpse in traffic. Talk about inconspicuous.

Although there is some major setback when it comes to carrying police equipment (not to mention hauling prisoners at the backseat), there’s not much space for road flares, shotguns, riot gear, evidence bags, traffic cones and several other cop stuff that will relax its way into the cargo hold. Besides, the Charger’s roofline pinches the door openings, making it mildly hard for getting a prisoner in.

Well, you can just take in mind the Police Charger’s aggressive face. If you’re on the wrong side of the street, you’ll be seeing it more often in your rearview mirror.
