Michigan State Police test cop version of Magnum
During the summer Chrysler brought out a cop version of the Magnum to Grattan raceway in Michigan for the Michigan State Police to test. The power and speed were very impressive! Unfortunately, DC needs to work on the brakes! (sound familiar?)
One of the officers was clocked at 123 MPH on one of the straights - unfortunately, as he entered a turn he had NO brakes. foot right to the floor. The car went right through the guardrail, through a dirt berm, and into a field. the officer was only slightly injured. The Dodge boys threw a tarp over it and got it outa there quickly! a few pics were snapped before they tarped it. I hope they finally work out the brakes! There hasn't been a real cop car on the road since the Caprice!
