The Imponte Dukes is a two-door muscle car found exclusively in Grand Theft Auto IV. It is based on the 1969 Dodge Charger (the name is a reference to the show, "The Dukes of Hazzard").

Design

Since Imponte is based off Pontiac, the Dukes may have been meant to emulate a first generation Pontiac Firebird, but it still looks closer to a Charger. The taillights have a vague resemblance to those of a 1967 Chevrolet Impala. Dukes are quite popular in the borough of Bohan, and some of them are found with Roots blowers and bug-catcher scoops, all with '750 HP' written on each side - referring to its insanely powerful 750 bhp V8. Unfortunately, a lot of this power is wasted, owing to the fact that the Dukes has a heavy body and very limited traction, even on dry tarmac. It's rear wheel drivetrain allows players to hold long slides with relative ease, because the steering is not overly sensitive.
