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.
Automobili Lamborghini is revolutionizing the landscape of the world’s fastest super sportscars with the world premiere of the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. Its unparalleled strength, first-rate lightweight engineering, and maximum handling accuracy are merged with unrivalled design and premium equipment to provide an unprecedented driving experience. The all-new Aventador is taking a huge leap into the age of futuristic cars and embellishing on the storied history of the brand with the upcoming automotive legend. The first buyers will get a taste of the future as the brand-new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 will be released in the summer of 2011.
The cutting-edge technology package of the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is absolutely distinct. It is formed from an ingenious monocoque created from carbon-fiber that fuses superior lightweight engineering with the premium levels of robustness and safety. The fresh twelve-cylinder with 6.5 liters’ displacement and 515 kW/700 hp yields together the superlative in high-revving satisfaction with an astounding low-end torque. The weight-to-power ratio is only at 2.25 kilograms per hp (4.96 lb/hp), thanks to a dry weight of only 1,575 kilograms (3,472 lb), which is exceptionally low for this type of sportscar.
Even the fascinating 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration figure of just 2.9 seconds and the top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph) do not give justice to the Aventador’s maximum performance. Even with the significant increase in power (+8%), its fuel consumption and CO2 emissions have been reduced to around 20 percent compared with its forerunner.
