The police force of a nation always defines its stealth and its economy. Don’t know how true that saying is, but sincerely it’s of the fact that countries around the world had engraved their names in exclusivities by trusting their police officials deliberately and provided them with expensive cars to patrol the streets.
The most affordable and yet fastest in its class, Nissan GT-R is allotted the UAE police costs a mere $100,000. This was added to the fleet in 2009 and ousting the offenders with a scare of 485hp. But to call for the namesake, police department there are using it over promotional reasons, and not exactly for the routine job.
Porsche may not have believed it when Qatar ordered to allot Panamera to the whole fleet. Unlike to one or two exclusive examples added to the repertoire of other countries, 2011 Qatar National Day parade stunned everyone when rolled out those German beauties on the road. Topping them were also the Cayenne in few numbers for avoiding bullies on the streets.
Bentley Continental GT
Honing up the fleet of police vehicles, Dubai went berserk adding up famous models. And Bentley wouldn’t be any exception if talked so. A Continental GT worth $200,000 isn’t a costly affair either.
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
A cockpit and gull-wing doors of SLS AMG once again marked aeronautics deployed to automotives. Of more than $200,000 all to be used for the best, Dubai Police deployed it on the duty to nab offenders in the country so none of them could fly away from their jaws on roads at least.
The collection of supercars wouldn’t be completed if not added a McLaren. Hence, a MP4-12C for $248,000 would do the justice for an immaculate 616bhp from 3.8L V8 engine.
It’s has to be birthright of Italy to have every example of homemade supercars for its police force, but sadly they don’t have such! Rising out like a messiah from the whole crowd, Lamborghini donated a Gallardo to the official policing authorizes back in 2004 on their 152nd anniversary. No one would mind a donation as costly as $250,000. But surely the rich donors may have envied.
Lamborghini’s affair continues to stay with the Italian police force humbly. As of in 2014 when the Gallardo’s successor Huracan unveiled, they too donated a one which had approximately caused them suffer loss over a sale worth $250,000.
In general, the patrolling needs only two police officials, but in case if needed two more, Dubai Police introduced a Ferrari FF to the fleet for an added convenience. Hence, it could be used for tourist space rather than affording to nab offenders in a sports family-saloon.
The most aggressive Lamborghini in the list, Aventador, also succeeded in making its way to the Dubai fleet. Priced for $450,000, we are expecting the official must also get a roadster model which led them to be fashion police with wayfarer-on and roof-off.
Mercedes-Benz CLS Brabus Rocket
Wouldn’t have thought the German may go such extreme. Rolled out the CLS Brabus Rocket as an outcome of Association of German Automobile Tuners (VDAT) and German Federal Traffic Ministry, the car is powered by a V12 of 720hp having electronically limited speed of 250mph.
Audi R8 GTR
From the tuning specialist Abt, Audi R8 GTR of Polizei is not a one can be sighted frequently in Germany. The most adorable item in the list that may turn heads if followed you, gets power from a 5.2L V10 engine of 612 hp – 100hp more than the standard. Just be careful: 0-62mph is attained in 3.2 seconds!
Dubai Police once again became the only authority of its time to appoint the world’s fastest car in their fleet. Priced for $1.6 million, the example isn’t easy to handle – in terms of speed and in number of admirers it galore at every street corner. For the diehards, it can be visible openly at the tourist spots of Dubai. And in worst if the offender is reached out of a wreck, a livelier action would apparently be witnessed.
Watch Out: Top Speed – more than 250mph (over 400km/h); 0-62mph – 2.46 seconds
Aston Martin One-77
Must say, Dubai stands second to the definition of exclusivities. And here out of the mass production, Arab policing authorities had also bought an Aston Martin One-77, of which only 77 of them were made and were outsold within a jiff. The price tag escorted of $2million (approximately) may not have shied the Sheikhs to roll-it for their heritage and love of supercars.
Hence, it’s also proven Dubai too loves customization. Officially One-77 is rolled off the production line only in silver shade, which the authorities may have asked to paint it aptly in white with green stripes for the fleet. The breaking 220mph of top-speed and aforesaid exquisites can compel anyone to break the law for a ride in it.
