Busted: The Dubai Police Don’t Really Drive a Bugatti Veyron
In the past few weeks, the Dubai Police expanded its fleet with the craziest supercars out there, ranging from a Camaro SS up to some of the most exclusive models in the world, like the Aston Martin One-77 and Bugatti Veyron.
Before you get too impressed though, it looks like the Veyron is not actually part of the crazy Dubai fleet.
This comes from an email we received from our friends at Kahn Design who realized that the image of the Veyron police car looked an awful lot like one of their cars. From what we can see, this is, in fact, a bad Photoshop applied to one of Kahn’s images. We thought something looked a little strange about that image.
So, what about the rest of the lineup? Are the police officers really driving an Aston Martin One-77, or is it another fake?
We’re not too sure what the Dubai Police force was thinking when it released this image, but we think it is time for an admission if this is truly a fake. And if so, shame on them!

Dubai Police Veyron vs. Kahn Design Veyron
The Bugatti Veyron was unveiled back in 2005 and the company is currently selling the Super Sport version. The supercar is powered by an 8.0-liter W-12 engine that delivers a total of 1,200 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and an equally impressive 1,106 pound-feet of torque at 3,000 rpm.
The Veyron Super Sport can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds and top speed is electronically limited to 257.8 mph. If the speed limiter is removed, the car can hit the same 267 mph top speed that helped it enter the Guinness World Record Book.
