    Someone had posted about this awhile back, and yes, it's quite cool!

    I almost wouldn't mind being stopped by one of those.

    Who's the lucky cop who gets to drive it?

    Makes me harken back to the days of Miami Vice.

    Cool!
    But I am not sure if that is a good idea. Many people will want to be chased by that car so it might actually increase the crime rate.

    Here is a similar and very bad idea:

    See? That is the problem.
    If they are not interested in arresting you, you will do something bad

    I would be willing to be arrested if it meant riding in one of those...

    I don't think you can ride in the back of them.... They only have two seats if I remember correctly .

    Shame it's not going on the roads, it would be amazing to see that zoom by at a tonne and a half.

    Nice point. Mmm... Hummer (US Army version) versus Lamborghini Gallardo, anyone?

    Yes, very cool. I was expecting this to be for a police department in the U.S., but am so glad that it is not.

    Wow. That's a very cool car. We do have some unmarked 'decked out" police cars around here - but not comparable to that.

    Yeah, most of the cities in Dallas-Ft Worth seem to use the Chargers, eh?

    Do you think they are used a lot outside of Texas much, too?

    I last visited North Carolina, and I did not happen to observe any Chargers as police cars out there.

    Really? I guess I don't get out of southlake *too* much, I sometimes go on my epic adventure out to Grapevine and that's 'bout it. Hehe


    I didn't see any chargers anywhere in California, Arizona, Ohio, or Nebraska. Only in Texas.

    Really?, i saw a documentary about this car a while back already and it was indeed used, but it might be have been a show instead (i tend not to believe everything i see on tv) and its really locked up in a museum now that would be a real shame.

    As for those who don't mind to be stopped by Italian police, think again.

    A 2010 Camaro police cruiser would be kick-ass.

    Think that same car was on TopGear a couple of years ago. Jeremy Clarkson had a ball poking fun at the Italians for being broke, but having the best cop cars because they were so worried about their "image"

    Got to dig this post back up ... the car is no more....

    can't deeplink to the image due to copyright so i have to give a link to a local dutch newspaper with a nice (or very sad) photo of the car..

    -edit- a link would be handy; here it is.

    And here some video coverage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_7HwoALJic

    As far the news story says: a witness saw the driver give a lot of gas (at a gasstation) and the car crashed into a row of parked cars.

    Fortunately they have 2 of these. So i guess they now can crash the second one too
