Dubai is one of the globe’s wealthiest cities, and they have no shame about flaunting it. Everywhere the eye roams, it is met with opulence, from the lavish hotels all the way down to the police cars. The Dubai police force boasts what is probably the world’s most expensive fleet of cop cars. Dubai officers drive in style. Here are some of their rides.
The Camaro is a classic for a reason, and its modern incarnation has enough get-up-and-go to give potential lawbreakers pause. It can produce up to 580 horsepower. Models start at about $24,000.
2. Lamborghini Aventador
Camaros are nice, but they’re no Lambos. The Dubai police force has one these up its sleeve, and it’s a sight to behold. In addition to their beautiful design, Aventadors produce up to 720 horsepower and can reach a top speed of 217 mph.
3. Aston Martin One-77
If James Bond ever shows up at Dubai, he’s going to have some worthy adversaries on his tail. This beautiful car is a beast on the road, and in tests reached a top speed of 220 mph, three mph faster than the Lamborghini Aventador.
4. Bentley Continental GT
This is the car that catapulted Bentley into a global brand. The grand tourer has gone through lots of evolutions. Most of the models can reach top speeds in the 200mph ballpark.
5. Dodge Charger
The Dodge Charger is an iconic classic, and it still pulls its weight with the more expensive cars on this list. Chargers are also popular with American police, you’ve surely seen them on the road before, possibly in your rearview mirror.
6. Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
This two-seater luxury supercar is one of the feathers in the Dubai police’s automotive cap. But it’s not just pretty, it’s also powerful. It can accelerate from 0 to 62mph in 3.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 197 mph. If you want to get your own, you’ll have to pony up at least $221,580
7. BMW F10 M5
The M5 is the bigger, badder version of BMW’s 5 series executive car. It’s a four-door with a 4.4L V8 twin-turbo engine that can produce up to 575 horsepower. They cost about $94,000.
8. Ferrari FF
FF stands for “Ferrari Four.” The FF has four doors and four-wheel drive. It has a top speed of 208 mph and goes from 0 to 62mph in 3.7 seconds. It has the largest capacity engine of any Ferrari. They cost about $295,000.
9. Bugatti Veyron
The Dubai police force’s Bugatti Veyron is considered the world’s fastest police car. Veyrons can reach top speeds over 250mph and this one was bought at a cool $1.6 million. The real question is whether or not they send it out on patrols.
Although many other countries include sports cars in their police fleets, nobody is more ostentatious about it than Dubai. So if you’re planning on speeding during your vacation there, you might want to think again.
