police cars

Posted on by Simona  

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.

If you ever find yourself on the other side of the law with the SWAT hot on your tail, you best hope that this monster of a truck isn’t hot on your tail.

Built by Galpin Auto Sports, this massive F-450 is appropriately called the B.E.A.S.T., or the 5.11 Tactical B.E.A.S.T.

It’s an enormous ride and for our money, one that would make us a little nervous is it were in our rearview mirrors. The truck was built in coordination with the Los Angeles Police Department together with military gear manufacturer 5.11 and Sweden Entry Tools (S.E.T.) for the use of law enforcement, fire departments and Special Forces.

To accommodate the uniqueness of this truck, Galpin set out to completely build it from the ground up. The aftermarket company reinforced the chassis to accommodate the increased weight brought about by an easily deployable steel security door, which weighs more than 600 pounds, from the bed of the truck that demonstrates how the tools function.

On top of that, Galpin also added a bevy of new features and components on the exterior, including a matching satin black painted front and rear with Road Armor bumpers. The truck also has integrated high intensity discharge (H.I.D.) front PIAA fog lamps and a 10,000-pound front mounted Warn winch to go with custom water-jet-cut diamond-plate covers and exterior trim accents, front and rear strobe lighting, and a custom fabricated, backlit, side steps with 5.11 and “B.E.A.S.T.” branding.

Inside, the modifications continue with: new dash panels; headliner and console areas wrapped in 5.11’s Flextac and 1050D clothing materials; custom seat inserts reupholstered in 5.11 clothing material; custom painted satin color matched interior trim pieces; integrated DVD headrests in both drivers and passengers seats; custom diamond plate floor mats hand-formed to fit in the foot wells; and a custom flashlight, knife, and accessory pockets all throughout the seating area

The B.E.A.S.T. is then finished with a set of 22-inch custom powder-coated satin-black American Force Classic wheels wrapped in Nitto TerraGrappler tires.


Tune it! Safe! , the campaign for safe and legal automobile tuning, has revealed its 8th specialty model at the 2012 Essen Motor Show. This year, it decided to use a Brabus-tuned Mercedes A250 BlueEFFICIENCY for the occasion.

In collaboration with Hankook, the campaign’s main sponsor, the special police-livery A-Class was given a Brabus body kit comprising of a new front spoiler, and a roof spoiler. Foliatec then dressed the A250 BlueEFFICIENCY in full police livery and Hella supplied a special signal system — "RTK 7" — with the latest LED technology, blue lights and sirens. Finally, a quad-tailpipe exhaust system and a set of 19" Brabus "Liquid Titanium" alloy wheels wrapped in Hankook Ventus S1 Evo 2 tires round out the exterior modifications on the car.

Inside, the Tune It! Safe! A-Class’ interior modifications were highlighted by alloy pedals, special floor mats, and controls for the aforementioned roof-mounted light bar.

As far as performance goes, the car’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine was treated to a sharp power improvement and it now pumps out a stout 245 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. All told, that allows the Tune It! Safe! A-Class to hit a top speed of 155 mph while also averaging 38.6 mpg with CO2 emissions of just 143 g/km.

2012 LA Auto Show Design Challenge Competitors Announced

Let’s get this out of the way now: all of the participants at the 2012 Los Angeles Design Challenge deserve a ton credit for the concept vehicles they designed. Mercedes deserves a huge chuck of credit for actually building a real-scale Ener-G-Force and bringing it to the LA Auto Show .

Unfortunately, there was only room for one winner, and that winner is Subaru’s Highway Automated Response Concept.

As a futuristic concept for what Subaru deems as “24-hour highway monitoring for Hawaii’s highway patrol,” the SHARC Concept captured the essence of this year’s theme best. It’s the smallest of all the concept vehicles, but still retains great functionality, an awesome design, and uses renewable energy. For achieving this delicate balance, the SHARC Concept was deemed as the best of them all.

"The SHARC captured the vision of the Design Challenge theme by combining functionality and problem-solving technology around a dynamic and plausible story," Design LA’s Chuck Pelly said.

Subaru designed the SHARC highway patrol vehicle to provide the kind of innovative, affordable and environmentally conscious solution for 24-hour highway monitoring, protection, and rapid emergency response in Hawaii, all while adhering to the state’s strict UltraGreen carbon-neutral environmental regulations.

It’s unlikely that we’ll see the SHARC as an actual production vehicle in the near future — maybe the distant future — but that’s getting ahead of ourselves. It does, however, give us a vision of what the future could look like in law enforcement.


Undisciplined drivers on the Australian roads now have a new reason to think twice before putting the pedal to the metal, as the highway patrol has just added a new Ford Falcon GT to its fleet. With 536 horsepower under the hood (up from the car’s standard 449 ponies), this is the most powerful police car to ever patrol Australian roads. These extra ponies are thanks, in part, to a bigger exhaust system and high-flow fuel injectors.

The car has been specially developed to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the NSW Police. It comes equipped with the latest radar unit, number-plate-reading technology and a suite of on-board computers that will make catching the bad guys really easy. In all, the Falcon GT police cruiser cost in excess of $100,000 and there is no mention of whether it will see actual police use, or just be a show car. We assume it will be relegated to the latter.

’’It’s a conversation starter,’’ says Inspector John Lipman, the commander of the traffic technology section. ’’It’s about interacting with car enthusiasts and having a similar vehicle to what they would have or what they might aspire to.’’
