The public debut of the redesigned 2012 Dodge Charger Pursuit won’t be held on the broken city streets deep within the U.S. but on the scorched concrete of the Phoenix International Raceway. Set to pace bot the NASCAR Nationwide Series and Sprint Cup Series races on March 3 and 4 respectively, the highest performing Chrysler cop car yet will use the event to showcase its worth. Fitted with the 5.7 liter Hemi V8, the rear drive Charger Pursuit can hit 60 mph in under six seconds and currently holds the Michigan State Police’s evaluation test lap time record. With a truly impressive dynamic resume, the Dodge cop car could coax a little fear into the hearts of NASCAR drivers, causing them to push hard in order to get away from one of the fastest police cars available.
“Phoenix marks our new track-proven Dodge Charger Pursuit’s inaugural pace car weekend, while highlighting the fastback sedan’s benchmark levels of performance and the Dodge brand’s 62nd year of NASCAR racing heritage,” said Peter Grady, Vice President of Network Development and Fleet, Chrysler Group LLC. The pace car’s use will mark the brand’s commitment to the legendary race series across the past 62 years. After its debut, the 370 horsepower sedan will begin making its way into the hands of police officers around the country. After that, criminals better thing twice before trying to outrun the Dodge Charger Pursuit.
