This Police Spec Dodge Durango Has Been Kitted Out With A 797 Hp ‘Redeye’ V8

Dodge early May took the wraps off of a 797-horsepower Durango SRT, complete with a police-car livery, built to compete in the famous One Lap of America.

The law-enforcement-spec SUV is a bit of cheeky fun from FCA, as evidenced by its nickname, “Speed Trap.” The vehicle will be driven in the event by David Carr, an SRT engineer, and David Hakim, a photographer, who also competed in 2018.

Speed Trap is based on a Dodge Durango SRT Pursuit of the kind usually sold only to police fleets, but more than a few modifications have been done to it.

The largest one is obviously the heart transplant: a 797-horsepower supercharged V8 borrowed from the Challenger Hellcat Redeye sits underhood, now, offering a serious bump up from the 475 horsepower the truck comes with standard.

The high-flow cat-back exhaust is brand-new, and the truck sits 0.6-inches lower on 20-inch wheels to improve handling. Meaty 305-section Pirelli tires help put the power down, or create a big smoke-show, if desired.

One Lap of America, for those that don’t know, is exactly what it sounds like: one lap around the United States, made up of visits to several race tracks and interesting events along the way. Think of it as a sequel to the “Cannonball Run” of decades past, which saw people race across the U.S. as fast as they could.

When Brock Yates originally started the Cannonball Run, it was, of course, highly illegal, but at least there was a good chance your car was faster than most police cruisers back in the day.

Now, with Dodge building cop cars like this, we wouldn’t bet on any sort of luck in that regard.

One Lap of America also keeps people from racing on the streets, trading that stuff in for timed runs on certified tracks. Dodge is a regular competitor in the event, and hopes to defend its title in the Truck/SUV class it won last year in a standard Durango SRT.
