Dubai gets Lamborghini Aventador police cars

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 15, 2013

Dubai’s police will ride in style as they will be given $400,000 Lamborghini Aventador sports cars in line with the Gulf capital's image, according to Dubai's deputy police chief. Lamborghini, an affiliate of the Volkswagen Group, said in its web site that all of its cars are capable of reaching 100 kph (60 mph) in shorter than six seconds.

Major General Khamis Mattar Al Mazeina said that the Dubai police have acquired a fleet of Lamborghinis to be used at main tourist sites. He said that the goal is so that the police reflect the emirate’s grand reputation as well as to promote tourism and demonstrate the security role that the Dubai police have in protecting the city.

Expect to see these vehicles at the downtown area surrounding the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa tower, the Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard, and the cafe- and restaurant-lined walk of the Jumeirah Beach Residence, which is one of the most famed Dubai waterfront developments. From the local media of Dubai, we acquired photos of a green-and-white vehicle that had the Dubai police insignia on the front hood.

Dubai, which is one of seven emirates in the UAE federation, is working to recover from the impact of the global financial crisis in 2009. Recently, the emirate revealed the launch of major projects, such as a monumental tourism and retail development with the biggest shopping mall in the world.
