From a Bugatti to Lamborghinis: the supercars of the UAE police – in pictures

From Italian exotica to British sports cars, the authorities have millions of dirhams of metal at their disposal

Led by Dubai Police's awe-inspiring line-up of green-and-white supercars, the law-enforcement authorities in the Emirates have adorned a glittering array of magnificent motors with their liveries in the past decade.

Browse through our gallery above to see highlights of some of the best over the years, from a multimillion-dirham Bugatti Veyron to all manner of Italian exotica, cult contemporary British sports cars and a variety of swish German engineering.

The UAE's low crime rates are no doubt aided by the prospect of seeing these speedsters in criminals' rear-view mirrors – after all, you're unlikely to evade justice if the chasing police are behind the wheel of a 400kph hypercar.
