Following last week’s announcement of a $550,000 Lamborghini being added to the Dubai police patrol fleet, another fast and furious motor will be added to the fleet.
Ferrari sports cars will be the police’s new wheels, Dubai police head Lieutenant General Dahi Khalfan said on Monday.
“Dubai is a unique city and everything in it should reflect its uniqueness and for that reason police will add a Ferrari sports car to its patrol fleet,” Khalfan said, according to local UAE news reports.
The $545,000 sports car will be used to keep order on the streets in high-end locations such as the area surrounding Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest skyscraper.
Khalfan said “Dubai Police are working on updating the police patrol cars to enhance security on the roads in accordance with highest international standards and technical developments.”
He added that the Dubai Police is one of the few police forces in the world fortunate enough to have such cars in its security patrol service.
Khalfan commented on the mixed reaction from the public following the addition of the $550,000 Lamborghini last week. He said “these cars will not be roaring and chasing speeding motorists, they will be used for road security in different areas of Dubai.”
Other sports cars in the Dubai Police patrol fleet include Chevy Camaro sports cars, which can often be seen on busy highways.
