BELDING, Michigan — A 2012 Dodge Charger Pursuit V8 has recorded the fastest lap time in Michigan State Police vehicle test history, according to Chrysler.

The 370-horsepower 2012 Dodge Charger Pursuit V8 completed the lap in 1:33.70. According to FastestLaps.com, the Grattan Raceway lap record is 1:24.90, set by a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 in 2008.

"All four Michigan State Police Vehicle Test Team drivers averaged their fastest times in the Charger Pursuit," said Chrysler in a statement.

The automaker also noted that the 292-hp Charger Pursuit V6 models "held their own around Grattan Raceway, averaging the fastest times for naturally aspirated (1:37.71) and E85-capable (1:37.57) six-cylinder police cars."

The 2012 Dodge Charger Pursuit V8 sprints from zero to 60 mph in under 6 seconds.

Michigan State Police testing took place this week, with the three domestic automakers in hot competition to outdo one another. Yesterday, General Motors issued a statement that the 2012 Chevrolet Caprice Police Patrol Vehicle outperformed the 2013 Ford Police Interceptor.

Inside Line says: When you need help, you want it to arrive in record time.

I'm not surprised at all that the Charger is the fastest in police vehicle history. Just wait until they put a Mustang GT 5.0 police car on that course ;)

I passed one of those the other day... bout wrecked trying to rubberneck to get a better look. We've had the older models around here for a while which looked tough but the new one looks absolutely sick. I want one in SRT format please (the cop version with all the bells and whistles!) :)

We have Charger police cars where I live. As a matter of fact, that's about all I see in Howard County.
