Dubai has had a habit of going big on whatever it does, from building the world's tallest building to creating ginormous artificial islands. The city now has another record in its name – world's fastest police car. It has been officially declared by the Guinness Book of World Records. The car in question is none other than the Bugatti Veyron, which shoots upto 97 kmph in blazing 2.5 seconds and the top speed is 407 kmph, thanks to a 16-cylinder engine that produces a massive 1,000 horsepower. The Veyron is priced at Rs 10.5 crore, and only 14 of these were built, one of which is part of Dubai Police's car fleet. Now, this is definitely not a city where you can get in a hot pursuit with the police.
The Veyron is not the only hyper car in the fleet. It is only one of the many, including a Lamborghini Aventador and Ferrari FF among others. Dubai has huge revenue generation from tourism, and the fancy cars are also a part of attracting more tourists' attention. It's not like Dubai was infested with thugs who got away in super cars and hence they had to bring in such faster cars for high speed chases!
Here's a video of the Dubai Police showing off their fleet of cars. We don't blame them, the cars are worth all the attention.
The Dubai Police’s supercar beats the US police patrol, a Lamborghini which merely has a maximum speed of 360 kmph. Any country who would like to beat Dubai in its game will have to employ in its police fleet a Bugatti Chiron or a Hennessey Venom GT, which is certified the fastest road car in the world.
