Michigan State Police’s Vehicle Evaluation Test revealed the performance figures for the new Dodge Charger Pursuit. And boy is it fast!

The HEMI-powered 370 hp Dodge Charger Pursuit V8 set the fastest lap time ever recorded (1:33.70) — at Michigan State Police’s (MSP) annual Police Vehicle Evaluation tests earlier this week at Grattan Raceway in Belding, Mich. It is the only Police car that can make 60 mph in under six seconds. Here’s the preliminary performance figures:

  • 0-to-60 mph (5.83 sec)
  • 0-to-70 mph (7.38 sec)
  • 0-to-80 mph (9.18 sec)
  • 0-to-90 mph (11.43 sec)
  • 0-to-100 mph (13.65 sec)

Dodge also offers this car with a more economical V6 Pentastar engine, but now that they announced the V8’s might power and speed, officers are not going to settle for the V6. Hell, I would join the force just to cruise the town in that V8 monster, secretly praying for a chase!

Continuing to build on the Charger’s high-performance heritage and the 2011 Dodge Charger Pursuit debuting at last year’s MSP tests, the 2012 model features new performance improvements, including:

  • Optional 3.07 rear-axle ratio for increased acceleration with Pentastar® V-6 (2.65 standard)
  • Optional 3.06 rear-axle ratio for increased acceleration with HEMI® V-8 (2.65 standard)
  • Recalibrated engine controller (including a 151 mph max-speed rating) with HEMI V-8
  • New heavy-duty and higher performance brake pads with new silicone brake caliper boot to reduce brake fade and deliver improved performance and durability (late availability)
  • All-new police-specific designed front seats provide additional comfort, accommodate the equipment on the officer’s duty belt, and provide the lateral support for performance driving
  • Full-color Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) with an engine-hour and engine-idle hour meter
  • 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine with 100,000 mile spark plugs
  • New wheel hub for minimized deflection and less vibration when braking
