In pictures: Dubai Police take their Lamborghini and Ferrari out for a spin
April 24, 2013
The city’s police are not the first force to add supercars to its fleet. In 2004, the Italian Carabinieri was given a Gallardo, and it was used in police chases and to transplant organs.
... and also their brand new Ferrari FF.
Capable of reaching 350kph, the Aventador is “in line with Dubai’s reputation as the city of luxury services”, the force said earlier this month after its launch.
At first, it was unclear if these cars were going to be used for promotional purposes only or they will be their new piece of crime-fighting equipment.
A police spokesman said that the Aventador was “specially modified in terms of power, speed and resilience. Its body and chassis are specially modified as well”.

Belgium’s police have a Gallardo and a Porsche 911, although both have been used solely for promotional purposes.
But a week later, Dubai Police added the Ferrari FF - which has a V12 engine, making it go from 0 to 100kph in 3.7 seconds - to their fleet.
