The Dubai Police recently gained major bragging rights when Guinness World Records named their police cars as the fastest in the world.
Gulf News reports that the delegation from Guinness World Records met Major-General Abdullah Khalifa Al Merri, Dubai Police chief, to hand over the Guinness certificate during the 11 Best Practices Forum on March 13, 2017.
The Dubai police force deployed a Bugatti Veyron as part of their fleet of luxury police cars. It is also the crown jewel of the fleet. The Veyron is equipped with a 16-cylinder engine that roars out 1,200 horsepower for a top speed of 407 km/h. The car can reach 100 km/h in just 2.5 seconds.
In contrast, the United States has a Lamborghini police patrol car that has a maximum speed of 360 km/h.
These luxury cars serve their purpose by enhancing the presence of the police force at landmark tourist sites, such as the Burj Khalifa and Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Boulevard.
Other supercars are also included in the fleet, such as a Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4, Nissan GTR, Bentley Continental GT, Aston Martin One-77, Maclaren MP4-12C, Audi R 8 and Ferrari FF. Alfred Bayle/JB
