A Better Cop Car

October 11th, 2008 · No Comments

This week Police cars have been making the news.

One of the big stories is the new and improved Dodge Charger police car.  The Dodge Charger is still a fairly new car when it comes to seeing duty for the boys in blue.   This is the first major refresh of the police package.  If I was in acquisitions for a police department I would opt for the 5.7 liter hemis with 390hp and yet it only gets 1mpg less than the V6.  This would give police the power they need to give hot pursuit to all the bad guys out there.

An interesting fact about police cars is that no police car is built to be a police car.  Each police car is a conversion from a mainstream production sedan.  One company is looking to change that buy building a purpose built police car.  That company is Carbon Motors.

It is an interesting undertaking to make a purpose built police car.
