Dubai Police reveal Bugatti Veyron patrol carFri, 07 Feb 2014
The Dubai Police are adding a white-and-green Bugatti Veyron to their already impressive cruiser lineup. Their motor pool already includes an Audi R8 V10 Plus, Bentley Continental GT, Brabus B63S, Ferrari FF and Nissan GT-R. The Dubai Police posted a picture of the new car being introduced on their Twitter account Thursday.
According to Gulf News, Dubai police chief Major General Khamis Mattar Al Mazeina said the new car will have #MyDubai printed on the side. #MyDubai is a social media initiative started by Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai's crown prince.
Rumors of the Dubai Police getting a Veyron circled the Internet last May, when it was found to be a Photoshopped picture sporting the police logo. This one, as far as we can tell, is real.
Unfortunately (unless you're prone to street racing), the cars in the fleet are used more often in public spaces than for flat-out police chases. The squadron of supercars spends more time near the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Mall and Sheikh Mohammed Boulevard, posing for tourists and generally flaunting the oil-rich emirate's wealth.
