Things to know about Dubai Police Car Collection

We've all seen the traditional cops cars as usual - might I say boring as well - sedan, be it a Toyota Corolla or a Nissan Sunny. But have you heard of a cop car that's a supercar as well? Major flex am I right! You'll be surprised that their fleet ranges from a Bugatti Veyron to a Ferrari FF to even a Lamborghini Aventador. Believe me, to say that the Police Department drives around in a beast would be an understatement.

Dubai Police Department's fleet of supercars has raised its overall profile among the elite law defenders across the globe. It has been in the headlines multiple times for its wide range of expensive and hardcore vehicles. There is a downside to it when we tell you that these cars are mostly used to show or patrol a wealthier side of Dubai. They certainly do not believe in sleeper cars because they practically have every single supercar existing on the planet. We seriously doubt if any criminal can outrun them now!

An interesting fact, according to CNN, the Guinness Book of World Records has officially certified that the Dubai Police proudly owns the fastest car in the WORLD - a 254 mph Bugatti Veyron. "We're not looking to just show off with the car; we're looking to show tourists how friendly the police is here in Dubai," Major Sultan Al Marri of Dubai police's General Department of Transport & Rescue told CNN. Not to mention the fact that they beat the US by breaking their record-holding the fastest car, which is a Lamborghini with a top speed of 233 mph. As luxury excessive it may sound, we cannot forget that we are talking about Dubai here.

Now let's talk about the Tesla Cybertruck. The Dubai police have embraced every bit of that - truck? car?suv? I really don't know - but it has proudly embraced it, even all of its ugliness, and included it into their prized collection in 2020. When there comes to an environmental point of view, Dubai manages it with a super adorable one-seater car that's eco-friendly and will help them in surveilling the narrow streets of Deira and Naif.

They are also a proud owner of an Aston Martin one-77 edition, a rare breed since they've released only 77 of them into the world. Moreover, just after the first few weeks of welcoming a Lamborghini Aventador into the family, they welcomed a Ferrari DD in no time, I mean the audacity! We're guessing money does grow on trees here in Dubai.

On another note, have you noticed their color combo? They have totally ditched the traditional blue with a dark green and white with blue emergency lights. Each of these vehicles also holds the website address and email address printed on it. They are also known to be the first task force to start using GPS systems to track down stolen vehicles. How cool is that!

Now let me give you a

Dubai Police list of cars

to make you a bit jealous of the Dubai police department. Their fleet consists of:
  1. Aston Martin One-77: With a price range of around $5 million, it's one helluva beast on the road with a blinding speed of 220 miles per hour, and a carbon fiber body fitting is an ultimate limited edition of only 77 cars built for the entire range.
  1. Audi R8: The V8 powered Audi R8 has bagged the hearts of the Dubai Police that they bought two of them! With a mindblowing engine horsepower of 525 borrowed from the Lamborghini Gallardo, the beast can soar from zero to 60 in under just four seconds.
  1. BMW i8: It is a mid-mounted three-cylinder engine generating a horsepower of 357, with an impeccable acceleration from zero to 60 in 4.2 seconds and speed up to 155 miles per hour, plus it saves a lot on fuel costs because it goes 76 miles per gallon.
  1. Bugatti Veyron: This top dog costs a good $1.6 million being the fastest with a speed of 247 miles per hour! It's the most recognizable car in the world, and we honestly doubt if anything in the world can outrun it.
  1. Ferrari FF: Unlike most supercars, including other Ferraris, the Ferrari FF is the four-seaters with a V12 powered engine that can go from zero to 60 in a matter of 3.7 seconds and can go up to 208 miles per hour, that in a blink of an eye.
  1. Lamborghini Aventador: A mid-mounted V12 engine generates a massive 691horsepower, the Aventador can go from zero to 60 in under 1...2...3 seconds!! With a top speed of 217 miles per hour, this is one of the most insane cars ever to serve the Dubai Police Department.
  1. McLaren MP4-12C: This mean machine was the company's first road car after the infamous 1992-1998 F1. Its V8 engines soar the road with a speed of 200 miles per hour, marking it as one of the finest British supercars in the collection.

Other supercars such as Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, Nissan GT-R, Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid, Lexus RC F, Chevrolet Camaro, Ford Mustang customized by Roush Performance, BMW M6, Brabus Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG, and Bentley Continental GT are just a few from their massive collection.

I hope you could catch your breath after reading the list and doing the mental calculation of the estimated costs of it all!

Something to laugh about is that there have been numerous instances where many people, especially tourists, call on Dubai Police emergency number 999 to inquire about these cars, specifically to know their location so that they can find them and take pictures with them. I mean, if we only had that information, wouldn't we all be going Gaga just car hunting these supercars for the gram!
