Dubai's Veyron Cop Car a Fake

Thanks to the attentive eye of Afzal Kahn and the poor Photoshop skills of the Dubai police, it's been revealed that this Veyron cop car is a fake.

Several days ago, Dubai’s Chief of Police tweeted a photo that showed the latest addition to his department’s fleet: a Bugatti Veyron. The image itself was pretty grainy but Dubai’s finest already have an Aston Martin One-77, Ferrari FF and a Lamborghini Aventador, so acquiring a Veyron seemed to make complete sense. Thing is, the image was Photoshopped and no such car is part of the Dubai police fleet (yet). The fakery was exposed by Afzal Kahn, founder of Kahn Design, and himself a Veyron owner.

Upon seeing the Dubai tweet, Kahn immediately recognized that, minus the police markings, the white Veyron looked alarmingly like one of his cars. In fact, it was his car. Dubai officials have admitted to faking the image and claim that such a supercar will likely be added to its fleet in the near future. Fair enough, but considering its vast wealth, Dubai could at least hire some decent Photoshop artists.
