PHOTOS: Dubai Police unveils new ‘patrol supercars’ at motor show

The recent additions, unveiled to the public on the first day of the Dubai International Motor Show on Tuesday, are a second Audi R8, a Mercedes SL 63, a Mercedes G-class Brabus and a Nissan GTR. It brings the total number of top-of-the-range sports cars run by the force to 12. Brigadier Nabil Abdulla Al Redha from Dubai Police said: “When we launched the first car earlier this year – the Lamborghini – we studied the impact of this car. “We looked at the reaction of the people and the media and we discovered it was a good impact and good advertisement, so we decided to expand. We mostly use the cars in places that have lots of tourists, allowing them to take pictures. “This is promoting the image of Dubai to the world.” The officer said the fleet was now worth Dhs14.5 million. He added: “Although they are supercars, our policemen and women never exceed the speed limit – they drive slowly.” Other cars already in the Dubai Police fleet include a Bugatti Veyron, Aston Martin One-77 and a Ferrari FF. ali.shouk@7days.ae
