One week after unveiling a Lamborghini Aventador as its latest patrol car, Dubai Police now plans to add a Ferrari to its roster of what is fast becoming a growing fleet of law-enforcing Italian supercars.
Dubai’s police chief, Lt Gen Dahi Khalfan Tamim, announced the extravagant plans on Monday via the Dubai Police twitter page, saying: “Soon Ferrari will join #Dubai_Police fleet.”
Images of what appear to be a Ferrari FF decked out in green and white police livery were released on Tuesday evening via Twitter. It is thought the FF will cost more than Dhs2 million ($545,000) and will carry a powerful V12 engine capable of 0-100kmh in just 3.7 seconds.
Last week Dubai Police unveiled a Dhs2 million Lamborghini Aventador complete with police badges and flashing lights.
Lt Gen Dahi said the Ferrari will enter service by the end of this week.
“Dubai is a unique city and everything in it should reflect its uniqueness and for that reason police will add a Ferrari sports car to its patrol fleet,” Lt Gen Dahi added.
“These sports cars will not be roaring and chasing speeding motorists. They will be used for roads security in different areas of Dubai.
“We have been pleasantly surprised for the reaction of people on the Lamborghini so we said a Ferrari would be a good choice too,” he added.
