This Armored Dodge Charger Hellcat Police Car Laughs In The Face Of Crime

If you’re in the market for a Hellcat-powered armored vehicle, your options are pretty much limited to the Rezvani Tank Military Edition. That’s changing today as Armormax has introduced the “bulletproof” Dodge Charger Hellcat.

Designed to appeal to police departments and governments that need serious protection as well as a supercharged 6.2-liter V8, the Charger has an armored passenger compartment which is lined in “light synthetic fiber laminates and air hardened, heat treated ballistic alloys.”’

The protection doesn’t stop there as the standard windows have been replaced new units which feature layers to glass, acrylic and polycarbonate laminates. The team also changed the suspension, installed run flat tires and added protection for the battery, radiator, fuel tank and ECU.

There’s no word on how much weight the armor has added, but Armormax says the model offers B7 levels of protection. This enables the car to withstand hits from high-powered rifles using armoring piercing rounds. Of course, it can also withstand smaller weapons fire.

Since the car was envisioned for police duty, it has been equipped with a push bar and emergency lights. The model can also be outfitted with an assortment of different options including bomb blankets and an external listening device.

Interestingly, Armormax says the Charger Hellcat is available with all-wheel drive that “can help keep you on your way in inclement weather.” That could be a typo, but an all-wheel driver Charger Hellcat is certainly an interesting proposition.

    An AWD Hellcat Charger would INDEED be very interesting. But why not? You can get an AWD Charger. [And Challenger] And the Trackhawk is AWD so FCA has parts tough enough to cope with the Hellcat engine. Fingers crossed.

      There is no room for both a V8 and a transfer case in the Charger/Challenger floorplan. They said it a few times already.

        Have ‘they’ said it a few times already? What a pompous ass. I guess all of the Charger Pursuit [i.e POLICE CARS] with the HEMI and AWD will have to be recalled.

          Those don’t have the ZF8HP gearbox. They either have a manual or a 5-speed auto. Back in the day when the V8+AWD question was asked for the first time, they didn’t have plans to offer any other gearbox combination, phasing the manual TREMEC out, so my information wasn’t inaccurate, it just wasn’t up to date – I didn’t stay up to date with everything in the industry in the past year.
          I should have been more specific, my bad.

        That just doesn’t make any sense, if they wanted it to work they could make it happen. The problem is it’ll cost them too much.

  • Is this company for real? Hellcat is not that efficient to be used for law enforcement duty, from the fuel consumption to the extra maintenance needs, beside why would Police needs to have excessive armor protection? Not to mention the total costs of this car. Looking at the company, I feel like their client is mostly private than professional clients. Total failure.

      Because crazies walk up to cop cars and shoot at them while officers are inside them.

    • Seats & a steering wheel

      Many Democrat politicians openly deride law enforcement agencies and personnel. With people like that in local, state and federal govt fanning flames of resentment towards police, they need greater protection now. This car is perfect.
