Dubai is one of the most famous major cities in the world, partly because of the massive wealth that exists within its borders. The super Oil metropolis features some of the most expensive architecture, along with other high end accouterments with ultra high priced automobiles parading down the streets carrying VIPs from all walks of life. When it comes to high end and impressive vehicles, the Dubai Police Force can hold its own in the lineup. The department owns some of the most amazing vehicles ever built within their police fleet and here are some that will raise your eyebrows.
1. Audi R8 V10
Law enforcement in Dubai spends their time tooling around the town in super fast Audi R8 automobiles that are fully souped with powerful V-10 engines that crank out 525 horsepower. This is the same engine that turns heads in the Lamborghini Gallardo, and it can sprint from zero to sixty in less than four seconds. The super car is an integral member of the fleet of super fast cars for the Dubai police.
2. Brabus G 700
The Brabus G class may not look like a sporty racer but this beefy Mercedes is loaded with the right stuff to handle the harsh environmental conditions of the desert region with an engine that boasts a massive 690 horse power that can catch the bad guys in town with amazing speed or tear through off road desert locations wth ease. The UAE added this model to their impressive fleet of squad vehicles in 2013 without batting an eye at the $230,000 price tag for the desert loving truck.
3. Bugatti Veyron
Could this possibly be considered an over the top police car? The Bugatti Veyron was purchased for the Dubai police car fleet at the cost of $1.6 million. It has thee capacity to reach a speed of 247 mph and it's a sure thing that the driver is going to catch up with the speeders and the criminals trying fruitlessly to outrun them. They picked this radical ride up in 2014. Although the automaker no longer makes the Veyron, it's an amazing vehicle that no doubt has retained its value. Do you think it will be rotated anytime soon?
4. McLaren MP4-12C
Although the MP4-12C isn't the fastest car in the fleet, it's fast enough. It reaches a top speed of more than 200 mph with its powerful V-8 engine that generates 604 horse power. This British super car became a distinguished member of the Dubai Police stable of super cars in late December of 2013.
5. Aston Martin One-77
The Aston Martin One-77 became known as Police One when it joined the force in 2013. The department paid a whopping $1.5 million for thee carbon fiber bodied beast that just happened to be a limited edition with just 77 examples ever built. The car has a top speed of 220 mph, making it the perfect choice for engaging in high speed chase situations. This car definitely gives the Dubai police the advantage in such situation.
6. Nissan GT-R
The Dubai Police acquired this beauty in 2013, but it was one of the least expensive vehicles purchased in their shopping frenzy that fully stocked the stable with new squad vehicles. They spent $100,000 on this car that held its own against most of the others with a top speed of 196 mph.
7. Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
This gorgeous Mercedes fits into the lovely theme of the city with an almost terrorizing coolness and style. It's a high end vehicle and just a glance lets you know that it's capable of reaching scorching high speeds, in fact, zero to 60 in 3.6 seconds, thanks to the 6.3 liter V-8 engine that cranks 539 horse power.
8. Ferrari FF
This all wheel drive is a super fast four seat model that features an all wheel drive with a high performance engine that has to drink gas like water on a hot day with the V12 that blasts the vehicle from zero to 60 in 3.7 seconds, and just keeps going until it hits a top speed of 208 mph. It's also a part of the Dubai fleet of police vehicles.
9. Lamborghini Aventador
The Dubai Police fleet of vehicles would not have been complete without the addition of the Lamborghini Aventador. They needed the world's most extreme road car in the stable with its 691 horse power V12 engine. This car beat speed records moving from zero to sixty in less than 3 seconds and has a top speed of 217 mph.
10. BMW i8
This car is drop dead gorgeous and most police officers would gladly call it their squad car. It's one of the more laid back super cars in the fleet with a three cylinder electric hybrid that generates 357 horse power. It's by no means a slow car with a zero to 60 achievement in 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph. One of the best things about this car, aside from its good looks, is the fact that it gets 76 miles per gallon and its sensible, adequate for its intended purpose and it's a fuel efficient vehicle.
