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.

Chevrolet has always valued its relationship with its customers, and it has made it its ultimate mission to not just listen but be responsive to the wants and needs of its customers. Proof of this is the 2014 Camaro which has been significantly redesigned to suit the demands of Chevrolet’s loyal and discriminating customers. The 2014 Camaro is a product of Chevrolet’s drive to continuously churn out high-performance models and Chevrolet’s application of all the years of learnings it has culled from its customers.

New 2014 Camaro presents a more contemporary look in comparison to the previous model. The new Camaro appears wider in stance because of some pronounced changes in the front and rear, like the front fascia which now has a wide lower opening and a narrow upper opening. But these changes did not mean a total overhaul of the Camaro’s look, as it managed to retain, albeit with some updates, the vintage “halo ring” HID headlamps which the Camaro has always been known for.

2014 Camaro Z/28 has been shown at track speeds capable of producing downforce. This is largely due to its functional hood vent, extended rocker panels, large splitter that reduces lift, functional diffuser, front and rear wheels that come with fender flares, and aggressive rear spoiler. In short, the 2014 Camaro is fully loaded with a complete package of aerodynamics.
