Dubai's reputation as one of the world's smartest cities and playground for the wealthy is no better represented than by its cars. It is not unusual to spot luxury and even exotic cars every day on its streets. The city police department's fleet is no exception.
Despite Dubai's obvious cultural excess and opulence, the laws of the land are quite strict. Perpetrators of these sometimes petty crimes should think twice about trying to outrun the local police. The supercars at their disposal are sure to catch up with them.
These police cars are a force to be reckoned with
Visitors and locals alike won't be bored by mild-mannered police road warriors. The Dubai Police department is known for its impressive fleet of supercars like no other seen around the world. It's a show-stopping display of public service meant to foster friendly goodwill even as the police do their jobs.
The best part is that the fleet isn't limited to just one model of bank-busting, luxury wheels. It all began in 2013 when the Dubai Police obtained a Lamborghini Aventador. They continued to add a wide range of rare supercars to the fleet, each swoon-worthy in both style and performance. Getting arrested in Dubai apparently has its perks.
The police force in Dubai is well aware of the value of tourism and the country's reputation for fast and outrageous cars. They are regularly seen near some of Dubai's most popular attractions, much to the delight of visitors there.
Which other luxury cars does the Dubai police force have?
After the initial introduction of the Lamborghini Aventador, the Dubai Police fleet grew to include several other eye-popping models. The 14-car strong fleet includes a Bentley Continental GT, an Aston Martin One-77, and a rare Ferrari FF. Add a Mercedes-Benz Brabus G-Wagon and a Camaro SS and you know this police force isn't fooling around.
Supercar enthusiasts, including the Dubai police themselves no doubt, wait to see what the new luxurious car will be. And it isn't just flashy cars driving law enforcement in Dubai.
The police formed a motorcycle unit in 2008 to more easily protect VIPs on the crowded roads. Some lucky police officers have been trained to man flying motorbikes (HoverSurfs) and it doesn't get any better than that.
Those that worry about the environmental impact of the Dubai Police supercars may be surprised. The fleet boasts a one-seater, eco-friendly mini-car used to patrol narrow streets. And, according to Car and Driver, the Dubai Police have ordered a Tesla Cybertruck to add to their fleet. Production starts this year.
The police force in Dubai was awarded a certificate by Guinness World Records for owning the world's fastest police car. Its Bugatti Veyron can reach speeds up to 254-mph, though it is doubtful it does so very often. It is one more eyebrow-raising notch in an already impressive police car lineup.
According to CNN, the Bugatti police cruiser has a 16-cylinder engine producing a staggering 1000 horsepower. It can go from 0 to 60-mph in just two and a half seconds. It is unlikely anyone will actually witness what the Bugatti Veyron is capable of on the streets of Dubai. But, as a marketing tool, it is enough for people to know just how fast it can go.
Car manufacturers around the globe are more than happy to see their cars become part of the Dubai Police fleet. The supercars are an undeniable tourist attraction offering free publicity to the brand. In a city renowned for its luxury and wealth, outrageous police cars only make sense.
