The Chevy Camaro and Dodge Charger are also available in either authentic Highway Patrol or City Police designs. All makes and models are available in multiple colors, except for Highway Patrol.
Additional features include individual (VIN) serial number, built-in automatic timer shut off, on/off switch for LED headlights, and personalized registration and title.
