PHOTO: Dubai Police show off Lamborghini patrol car
Think again before you speed down the highway because you can't escape the coppers chasing you in their shiny new patrol car.
"Latest #Dubai_Police patrols, now at your service." the force tweeted, sharing a photo of their Lamborghini Aventador supercars.
Images of the Italian race car went viral on social media channels yesterday, with many commenting ‘#onlyinDubai’.
“Now #Dubai #Police has officially the most AWESOME patrol #cars! #insane,” someone posted on Twitter.
“Lambo Dubai Police cars.. I see where all my parking tickets went.” another tweeted.
“New dubai police car .. Don't you ever try to run away right now !!” added one more.
Last month, Dubai Police introduced Chevrolet Camaro vehicles to its fleet. The force tweeted photos, describing them tantalisingly as a “new generation of patrol vehicle”.
Dubai Police also confirmed in a statement that it will be introducing sports cars to its fleet to enhance its patrolling abilities. The new vehicles are said to have been made according to Dubai Police specifications and will help to facilitate policing on highways.
Dubai Police said suspects would not be transported in the car due to its high value.
The vehicle is estimated to have cost more than Dhs2 million. “It will be used in big tourist areas. It shows how classy Dubai is,” deputy director of Dubai Police, General Khamis Matter Al Muzaina said.
