Pigs with Muscle...

The NYPD have just taken delivery of some of the coolest cop cars to ever cruise NY streets.
 

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly announced Monday the department would be testing 15 flashy new 2006 Dodge Chargers on regular patrols, giving the NYPD a new top speed of 150 mph. The cars go from 0 to 60 in 6.5 seconds and stop much faster than NYPD's current fleet of Chevrolet Impalas and Ford Crown Victorias, which max out at 110 mph.

They also get better gas mileage than the Crown Vic.

I think the title of coolest cop car in the world goes to the Italians with the Lamborghini Gallardo (even though it was donated by Lamborghini and not a real purchase).

Now why would the NYPD need cars that go that fast? Not like there is a lot of open road that would make those speeds necessary. Montana yes, NYC not likely
