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.

There’s a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, a Ferrari FF, a McLaren 12C, a Lamborghini Aventador, and one of only seven Aston Martin One-77 models in the world.

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.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
