The Dubai Police Department unveiled its latest luxury patrol vehicle additions at the 12th Annual Dubai International Motor Show. The police department now sports 12 luxury patrol cars, according to a report from Emirates 24/7.
The latest additions include the Mercedes G63, Audi R8, Mercedes-Benz SL 63, and the Nissan GT-R.
The Mercedes G63 is the first tuned police patrol car added to the fleet, a car which should fulfill an educational purpose beside an attractive one, according to the Emirates 24/7 report. German tuning company Brabus upgraded the vehicle to a 700 Widestar and similarly launched the Tune it! Safe! Campaign in cooperation with Dubai Police, to show the public that car-tuning can be done safely.
The BRABUS 700 Widestar is outfitted with a 515 kW/700 hp 5.5L V-8 biturbo engine. This enables the all-wheel drive police vehicle to reach a top speed of 240 km/h, sprinting to 100 km in just 4.9 seconds.
Dubai Police first added a luxury vehicle to its fleet in April 2012 with the purchase of the Lamborghini Aventador. The purchase of the Camaro SS, Ferrari FF, Aston Martin 177, Bentley GT, Mercedes SLS, Fort Mustang Roush, and BMW M6 soon followed. According to the report, the most expensive of the patrol cars is the Aston Martin. The four newest additions to the fleet are certainly not the last, as Dubai Police said it is planning more purchases in the near future, according to the report
