Dubai Police Adds Aventador to Fleet


Police academy recruiters in the Gulf emirate of Dubai just had their jobs made a whole lot easier.

If nothingelse, Dubai is known as a city with plenty of money floating around and cheapgasoline. That marriage made in the desert equates to an abundance of highly-expensive, super-fast cars whose owners often find hard to drive within the speed limit. Enter the Dubai Police Department, which has become the first police force to adda Lamborghini Aventador to its patrol fleet - even if this isn’t thefirst time we’ve seen cops using supercars to patrol the streets.

Italy’s Polizia have a Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4, the Japanese police use a Nissan Skyline GT-R for hot pursuits, the Germans have an ABT-tuned Audi R8, and in Colombia the local constabulary chases down drug dealers in a Ferrari 348 TS. Sporting the numberplate “8,” the green-and-white Aventador is to be the first of a selection of police-designed sports cars to be introduced into the Dubai police force’s fleet in order to patrol the highways. With a 0-62 mph time of three seconds and a top speed of 217 mph, the 700hp Lambo should be a match for most things on the road. Or, at least it would be in any other place in the world.
