After holding the record for the fastest rear-wheel-drive police car, the 2014 Dodge Charger Pursuit also became the fastest-ever recorded all-wheel drive model. The result was obtained at Michigan State Police’s (MSP) annual Police Vehicle Evaluation earlier this week at Grattan Raceway in Belding, Mich.

The 2014 Charger Pursuit recorded the fastest lap time at 1:33.85 and the fastest average lap time of 1:34.75.

What’s more, the 2014 Charger Pursuit was the only car that was capable of achieving a sub-1:34 lap time. This if proof that it delivers the best combination of acceleration, braking, handling and dynamics. The new time obtained by the 2014 Charger Pursuit comes to complement the previous record-setting, 1:33.70 lap time obtained by the 2012 Dodge Charger Pursuit V-8 rear-wheel-drive.

The 2014 Dodge Charger Pursuit AWD will be offered to to law enforcement customers in the Spring of 2014.

Chevrolet announced the Caprice PPV (Police Patrol Vehicle) back in 2009 and since then, it became one of the most appreciated police cars . For the 2014 model year, the Caprice PPV is further improved with a series of exterior and interior enhancements, new safety measures and new technology.

When you ask a little boy: "what do you want to be when you grow up?" the answer will be of course: "a police officer." Of course not everyone will end up doing so!

Jay Leno for example, he hasn’t become a police officer, but in the latest episode of his "Jay Leno’s Garage" show he ended up playing with the coolest cars driven by the police officers at the California Highway Patrol.

The cars were brought to him by CHP Captain Matt Guthrie and former commissioner Spike Helmick. They brought five of the finestcop cars of the last 40 years, including 1982 Mustang, 1966 Dodge Polara, 1970 Mercury Monterey, 2000 Crown Victoria and the brand new Ford Explorer that will be hitting California highways soon.

Check out the video to see what Jay Leno has to say about this great cop cars!

So the Dubai Police didn’t really have a Bugatti Veyron in its ranks. While we were undoubtedly disappointed about that, it didn’t take long for us to move on from it.

But now some more interesting news because the world’s most awesome fleet just got even more awesome!

New photos were taken of a pair of additions to the already impressive list of supercars that have been commissioned by the Dubai Police. This time, it’s a BMW M6 and a Ford Mustang , two high-powered models that should fit in with the already impressive roster of supercars employed by the law enforcement agency.

At this point, it’s becoming more and more like a "what’s next?" proposition for these folks.

And for our money, we expect a few more German vehicles added there before the dust settles. Possibly an Audi or a Porsche? Maybe even an SUV, perhaps?

Imagine the Lamborghini Aventador , Ferrari FF , Aston Martin One-77 and Chevrolet Camaro SS all in one place. No, we are not talking about the cars that would occupy our dream garage; we are just talking about the cars from the insane Dubai Police fleet. To make it even crazier, another supercar has just joined the lineup: the Bugatti Veyron .

So, let’s figure out how many horsepower the fleet now has at its disposal to catch bad guys. there’s 700 from the Aventador; 660 from the FF; 750 from the One-77; 426 from the Camaro SS; and 1,001 from the Veyron. That gives the Dubai police force a total of more than 3,500 horsepower! Hopefully it has a very large stable and a stacked bank account to go along with it.

The problem with the Veyron is that the police officers could be forced to end a chase early, considering the huge gasoline appetite the Veyron has.

We’re just wondering what’s next on the force’s list; can you guess?

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past month, you might have missed out on the Dubai Police’s lineup of new cars. And if you didn’t know any better, you might have guessed that this was some kind of ostentatious joke by the Middle Eastern country.

But the latest video seems to suggest otherwise, as three of the cars dressed up in the PD’s now famous white and green livery were filmed patrolling the highways of Dubai. That, or the police just wanted to show motorists - that includes you, Justin Bieber - the kind of cars that will be hunting them down should they decide to break some traffic laws.

These cars aren’t Ford Crown Victorias, fellas. These are some of the fastest and most powerful cars on the planet and if you think that you can provoke them to a car chase and get away with it, well, we don’t like your chances one bit.

We don’t know about you, but we just found the perfect job: being a police officer for the Dubai Police. Why? Well, we’re pretty sure you know the answer already: because of its incredible fleet.

Dubai officers can drive an Aston Martin One-77 , a Lamborghini Aventador or a Ferrari FF . The latest car dressing in Dubai Police uniform in the Camaro SS .

While it may not be as impressive as the other three supercars, the Camaro SS is still a sports car that not many officers can enjoy. Just like the other three supercars, the Camaro SS is dressed in a white livery paint with the usual green strips and the official Dubai Police badges.

On the U.S. market, a Camaro SS is priced at $33,535, but we are pretty sure that will all those police gadgets its value has been increased to more than $100k.

Anybody that can proudly say they have a Ferrari FF, a Lamborghini Aventador , a Bentley Continental GT, and a Mercedes SLS AMG in their garage can lay claim to a pretty impressive supercar collection.

But in true spirit of Dubai’s opulence and love for the bombastic, its police force has just dressed up these four supercars in its official livery. But that’s not why the force has made news yet again. It’s back in the news because these supercars just weren’t for the luxurious fleet of police vehicles.

Nope. It has now added an Aston Martin One-77 into the mix. Talk about taking it a little too far, huh?

In an event photo posted by GT Spirit, it appears that the Dubai Police force is taking its fascination for exotic police cars to a whole new level. It’s one thing to have a Ferrari and a Lamborghini, but an Aston Martin that costs $1.4 million?

More importantly, it’s one of just seven Q-Series One-77 models that are in existence that it decided to deck in its now-familiar white and green garb. That in itself drives up the value to well over $2 million!

At this point, we wouldn’t be surprised if the Dubai Police gets its hands on a Bugatti Veyron and turns that one into a police car, too.

A few days ago, the Dubai Police took delivery of a patrol car unlike any other: a Lamborghini Aventador. Today it’s time for another supercar to join its fleet: a Ferrari FF . This special FF costs around 2 million Emirati Dirham (about $544,000 at the current exchange rates).

The two models have been added to the police fleet in an attempt to "enhance security on the roads in accordance with highest international standards and technical developments," according to an official statement coming from Lt Gen Dahi Khalfan Tamim, Dubai Police Chief. Both supercars will be used to provide best road security in different areas of Dubai.

Just like with the Aventador, the new FF Police Car is painted in a cool white paint with green stripes - official colors in the Emirates. It also features lots of sirens and for the interior it will most likely be offered with all the gadgets required by a police vehicle.

There’s something to be said for a country that doesn’t lack in wealthy people to have a police department with a patrol car like this.

In yet another example of Dubai’s fascination for high-priced exotic cars, the country’s police department has taken delivery of a patrol car unlike any other: a Lamborghini Aventador .

Now, understand. Supercar’s aren’t that uncommon in Dubai so it might be a good idea for the police to go after these exotics with an exotic of its own. You know, to “level the playing the field.”

But that doesn’t take away from the bombastic nature of having a 700-horsepower Italian supercar with a six-figure price tag serving as a law enforcement vehicle. It’s not out of the stretch of the imagination that these Aventador will be mostly a "display" police car and won’t be used in official duty.

But still, there’s a level of unrest seeing car like this in your rearview mirror with its lights flashing.
