375 hp 5.7-liter V8? I got that beat easy...

Dodge Challenger cop car adds muscle to the Florida Highway Patrol fleet

The Florida Highway Patrol has a challenge for would-be speeders.



Well, a Challenger.

The agency’s Troop G in Jacksonville has added the Dodge muscle car to its fleet.

"As you can see, we take aggressive driving seriously! Please slow down, buckle up, reduce distractions. We are watching," the FHP advised in a tweet accompanying a photo of the new car.

The model is a high performance Challenger R/T with a 375 hp 5.7-liter V8 that's been painted in the patrol’s signature black and tan colors and equipped with hidden emergency lights that preserve its sporty profile.

The troop left the stylish, high performance rims and tires on it, rather than swapping them for a set of the steel wheels that the Chargers in the fleet use, and added a 360-degree camera system, police radio and laptop computer.

Dodge doesn't offer an official police package for the Challenger, and two-door doesn’t have a cage for the small rear seating area, but Sgt. Dylan Bryan says baddies could end up getting a ride to the station in the passenger seat, as long as they're not potentially dangerous.

Kowalski would be spinning in his grave! That much car, that much cc, that little power to weight?
