If there's one country in the world that can afford to buy exotic supercars, what would it be? If you answered Dubai, you are correct, habibi. Because that Gulf emirate has been buying up some of the highest of high-performance machinery to patrol its streets and sand-swept highways.

The Dubai police force recently acquired a Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari FF and a 700-horsepower Brabus-tuned Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen. Heck, even the fire department has a new Corvette Stingray at its disposal. Now the oil-rich highway patrol has added a McLaren MP4-12C to its motor pool, which may seem like overkill. Still, considering all the Veyrons and Koenigseggs registered in the UAE, it may still not be enough to chase down speeders.

      This makes about as much sense as the "SHOP FOR A VEHICLE" thing on the bottom of Autoblog. Can you turn that thing off please? It's super annoying.

      So is this Dubai police photoshopping again? They tried to impress with their Veyron police car that turned out to be nothing but a photoshop... this does not look very different.

        Now that you mention it, is it just me or does it seem like the panel gap on the door seem to disappear when it passes through the letter "b" in the www.dubaipolice.gov.ae signage?

        The knowledge is weak with this one. Not only they think that Dubai is a country, they also think (as many other ignorant folks) that Dubai is an oil-rich country.

      Codeman wrote: "Clearly the police there belongs to some corrupt oil sheikh scumbag." And you are right. Unfortunately, the Dubai Police Force literally belongs to ‘Sheikh’ Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum... So, wonder when they’ll get: – Democracy – Freedom of press – Freedom of speech – Freedom to freely assemble – Freedom to express PDA (Public Display of Affection)

      High speed chases usually involve police cars bumping the perp and forcing them off the road, then bumping them more and pinning their car. Lots of contact, lots of dents and scuffs. You really see them doing that with their exotic police cars? Hell no. This is all for show. It actually makes me NOT take them seriously as a real police unit.

        The only reason the dictator ‘Sheikh’ Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum is buying one of these with the money he has stolen is to continue to lure ignorant westerners to give away their money to him. And unfortunately that seems to be working just fine. Sigh.

          Dubai is one of the most unsustainable cities in the world. If they weren’t able to import food, it would just be the desert it was from the start. Almost no other place on earth do emit more Green House Gases per Capita. The only reason the dictator ‘Sheikh’ Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum is buying one of these with the money he has stolen is to continue to lure ignorant westerners to give away their money to him. And unfortunately that seems to be working just fine. Sigh.

        Autoblog needs to get their **** together and do a bit of research before posting stuff like this.

      Probably actually need it with all the reckless oil money kids in ferraris lambos and bugattis over there. They probably won't actually get in a high-speed chase with them. But the fact that they probably could actually catch you now will make them more likely to actually pull over....
