Dubai is a rich country where the word "excess" is thrown completely out of the local vernacular. It’s hard to imagine that as late as three decades ago, Dubai was a barren town with little to nothing to show for it. But today, it’s become a high-class metropolis that has no shortage of wealth and extravagance. And from what we’ve seen in past months, the Dubai Police Force can attest to that, thanks to its lineup of supercars that have been converted into police cruisers.
We saw a lot of them earlier this year when it seemed that there was a new supercar-turned-police-car every week. But it’s only now that we get to see them all together all while talking to the police officers who carry the privilege of driving these exotics on a daily basis.
Department of Transport and Rescue acting director Anas Al Matrooshi gave Vocativ a comprehensive tour of Dubai’s finest police cruisers. If you haven’t seen them before, you need to check them out now.
In other locations on the planet, that’s a garage for the ultra rich and famous. But in Dubai, those are just police cars.
That’s just how they roll over there.
