When it comes to luxury, there’s no other city that comes close to Dubai. The city that is situated on the Persian Gulf on the Arabian Desert, has transformed itself into a major international trade center in recent years. Commonly known as the ‘the shopping capital of the Middle East’, Dubai is one of the wealthiest cities of the world. Along with huge skyscrapers and multi-millionaires, Dubai is a home to some of the fastest cars that have graced this planet.

We all know what these supercars can do and the impossible speeds they can attain. While these cars are jaw-dropping, how do you stop these cars from over-speeding and causing a havoc in the city? The best way to defeat speed is with speed, which is why the Dubai police have a unique fleet of cars that can end any high-speed chase in minutes. Here are the 10 cars that Dubai police have in their fleet of cars.

1.  Brabus G 700

What happens when a 536 horsepower AMG isn’t enough, you get the Brabus G 700. Launched in the year 1977, the Brabus G700 has an engine horsepower of 690 and the ability to attain a top speed of 149MPH. This monstrous truck is known to end any high-speed chase in no time, whether on road or off.

2.  Audi R8 V10

The V-10 powered R8 was introduced in the year 2008, and the Dubai police got their hands on two of them and added them to their fleet soon after. The R8 has a horsepower of 525 and can go from 0-60 in under four seconds. Audi has a reputation of being the most reliable supercars of the planet and the Dubai police.

3.  McLaren MP4-12C

The McLaren MP4-12C has been a part of the Dubai police force since 2013 when they decided to add one of these British beasts to their fleet. Its 608 horsepower V8 engine can reach a top speed of 200 miles an hour, to ensure it keeps up with the speeding traffic.

4.  Nissan GT-R

The Nissan GT-R costs way lesser when compared to some of the other cars in the Dubai fleet. The GT-R has a hand-built twin-turbo V6 engine, with a horsepower of 545, and a top speed of 196 miles an hour, which makes it one of the quickest cars in the fleet. The Dubai police bought its GT-R in the same 2013 shopping spree where they brought home the Brabus, one of the Audi R8s, and a Mercedes-AMG S63.

5.  Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

The Dubai police generally consider supercars with butterfly wing doors for their fleet, but an exception to this is the Mercedes SLS AMG. The AMG comes with Gullwing doors, but makes up with its 6.3 liter, 539 horsepower V8, taking the car from zero-to-60 in 3.6 seconds, the SLS AMG is one of the most amazing supercars in the Dubai police force.

6.  Bugatti Veyron

The Bugatti Veyron is one of the most recognizable supercars in the world and is with no doubt the most popular car amongst the Dubai police fleet. The Veyron has been one of the fastest and most expensive cars and in 2014 one of Dubai’s finest. The car can reach an unbelievable top speed of 247 miles an hour. Now, try beating that in a high-speed chase.

7.  Aston Martin One-77

Aston Martin, a name synonymous for building some of the best grand tourers in the world, but the One-77 is a different kind of beast altogether. Built as an ultra-limited run of 77 cars, the One-77 is a carbon fiber-bodied supercar with a top speed of 220 miles per hour. The Dubai police believe that its blinding speed and menacing looks would come in handy in high-speed pursuits.

8.  Lamborghini Aventador

Lamborghini’s has a reputation for building the world’s most extreme road cars, and its all-wheel-drive Aventador is one amongst them. Powered by a 691 horsepower mid-mounted V12 engine, with a top speed of 217 miles per hour, the Dubai Police Aventador can go from zero-to-60 in under 3 seconds. Even lined up against the other cars in the Dubai fleet, the Aventador is simply one of the most insane cars ever to serve on the right side of The Thin Blue Line.

9.  Ferrari FF

Unlike the other two-seater supercars and a few Ferraris included, the Ferrari FF is a four-seater. The Ferrari FF is a four-wheel drive V12 powered engine that can go from 0-60 in 3.7 seconds. It can also reach a top speed of 208 miles an hour, ensuring an end to any high-speed chase within seconds.

10.  BMW i8

The BMW i8 is the latest addition to the Dubai fleet. The futuristic BMW i8 has a mid-mounted three-cylinder engine connected to two electric motors, which generates 357 horsepower. The i8 is designed to go from zero-to-60 in 4.2 seconds. BMW has electronically limited the top speed of the i8 to 155 miles per hour. Compared to some of Dubai’s other supercars, the i8 has a mileage of 76 miles per gallon.

Dubai is one of the wealthiest and most desirable cities in the world, and its unique fleet of police supercars is a reminder of why Dubai is unlike anyplace else on earth.
