The news site Vocative scored a sneak peak inside the Dubai Police force's stable. Even in a city known for its outrageous wealth and opulence, the fleet is jaw-dropping. Tucked in among $6 million dollars worth of extreme machines is the crown jewel of the police's garage, a Bugatti Veyron.
The Veyron is one of the worlds fastest and, at $1.6 million, the most expensive production car on the market. With a staggering 1,001 horsepower engine that can run the Veyron up to 267 mph, the Dubai police could catch any criminal they set their sights on. Instead, they use the Veyron, along with its Audi, Aston Martin, Lamborghini, Bentley and other luxury automobiles, for marketing and outreach purposes.
Seem like a waste of some serious power? At least the Dubai police actually drive their supercars. The Los Angeles Police Department received a donated Lamborghini Gallardo for its fleet. Their Lambo will be displayed at charity events only.
