    If U.S. police forces want to get their hands on a higher-end vehicle, they normally have to rely on seizing one in a drug bust. If Dubai’s police department wants a flashy car, they buy it…and it seems they spare no expense.

    The extravagance of Dubai has been well-documented and is most notably demonstrated in Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. But lavish spending in Dubai is not limited to large private corporations. Over the course of the last year, the city’s patrol cars have been updated to improve a fleet that already included BMW 5 Series cars and Hummer H1’s alongside its more typical Dodge Chargers and Ford Interceptors.

    In a city with chronic speeding, Dubai’s police force won’t be outrun by anyone’s vehicle with some of the world’s most expensive luxury supercars at their disposal…

    Well, at least no one will get away from them. Those are some serious beasts.

    Funny how the Mustang and Camaro are normally cool cars, but compared to the rest of the fleet, they're kinda shitty... lol.

    I hope that Dubai is saving some money, because someday they're going to regret having spent millions on stupid police cars.

    Ever since the crash in '08 there has been a big problem in Dubai with people fleeing the country and abandoning their luxary vehicles in the process. You can and will be put in jail in Dubai for not paying your debts, so most people flee the country when they go broke. I wouldn't be suprised if a lot of these cars were actually confiscated abandoned vehicles.
