Chevrolet Camaro SS joins Dubai Police vehicle fleet

Article by Anita Panait, on May 10, 2013

The Dubai Police force has included a Chevrolet Camaro SS to its existing fleet of vehicles. The keys to the Camaro SS were handed to Dubai Deputy Police Chief Major General Khamis Mattar Al Mazeina in a ceremony at police headquarters by Buti Saeed Al Ghandi, managing director of Al Ghandi Auto and John Stadwick, president and managing director of GM Middle East.

In exchange, the Dubai Police handed Stadwick a special engraved plaque. The Dubai deputy police chief remarked that the Camaro is “highly regarded around the world.” He described the Camaro SS as the ideal car for Dubai Police as they seek to upgrade their vehicles to meet the Emirate’s standards in safety and security.

Buti Saeed Al Ghandi expressed delight in being the first to respond to the Dubai Police’s request for assistance in “adding high performance patrol cars to their fleet.” He remarked that they felt that the Camaro would be the “right vehicle for their needs.” Al Ghandi Auto is GM’s dedicated Chevrolet dealer partner in Dubai.

He also expressed confidence that the Camaro’s ability to respond rapidly – thanks to its high performance V8 engine, suitability for Dubai’s roads, and ease of servicing -- will make it the ideal patrol car “for years to come.” The Camaro SS is powered by 6.2L V8 engine that provides up to 426 horsepower of output and up to 567 Nm of torque, allowing it to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 250 km/h.
