TEXAS – HIgh speed chase? No problem. A 2020 sports car that was seized in a high-speed chase has been transformed into a police cruiser.
Talk about a turnaround!” the Texas Department of Public Safety — Southeast Texas Region wrote in a Facebook post. “The 1,080 HP Dodge Hellcat went from evading law enforcement in Harris Co. to now catching criminals wherever it roams in Texas.”
The car was outfitted with emergency lights and bears the words, “State Trooper” on the hood.
The post was accompanied by several photos of the “fast & devilish-looking car,”
“The fast & devilish-looking car was added to the DPS fleet of patrol vehicles after a judge awarded it to the Agency,” the post read
How fast can a Hellcat go?
According to the Kelly Blue Book, the SRT Hellcat Redeye Challenger and Charger models have the highest top speed at 203 mph, while the SRT Super Stock has the fastest 0-60 mph (3.25 seconds) and 1/4 mile (10.5 seconds) times.
