It’s official, Dubai Police have broken the Guinness World Record of owning the world’s fastest police vehicle. Guinness officials met with Major-General Abdullah Khalifa Al Merri, Dubai Police Cheif on Monday to hand over the award.
The car that won them the award is the mighty Bugatti Veyron. With 1,200 horsepower on tap hurtling its way out of the quad-turbocharged W16 8-litre petrol engine. With a top speed of over 400 km/h, the hypercar can reach 100 km/h in a mind-boggling 2.5 seconds.
With the Bugatti Veyron part of the forces lineup, they supersede the American equivalent who currently own a 360 km/h Lamborghini.
The Dubai police force is backed by an array of spectacular vehicles including an Aston Martin One-77, Bentley Continental GT, BMW i8, Nissan GTR, McLaren MP4 12C, Lamborghini Aventador, Mercedes-Benz SLS and others.
Dubai Police supercars can be seen on across the Emirates and are usually found at popular tourist destinations including the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Mall, JBR and Shaikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard.
We were fortunate to catch a glance of four of these vehicles who had stopped on the hard shoulder of the Dubai-Al Ain highway. Let us just say we weren’t the only ones impressed.
