Dubai is undoubtedly a fast-growing city due to various factors such as tourism, its oil industry, and safety. It is marked as one of the safest cities not only in the Middle East but also in the world thanks to its strict implementation of laws and renowned police force.
The Dubai Police Force has some of the finest police cars the world has ever seen. In fact, tourists are enjoying their time in Dubai by just simply seeing and taking photos of Dubai cop cars. The Dubai cop cars are deployed not only to help make the city safer but also for its tourism.
It would be great to see some of the high-end performance vehicles become a police patrol car in our country as well. But that seems that be a far-fetched idea at the moment. So for now, let’s take a look at the police vehicles the Dubai Police Force showcases.
Starting this list is one of the most popular sports cars in the world, the Audi R8. The Audi R8 was first introduced in 2006 and has helped the German carmaker to further advance its name in the top high-performance vehicle market ever since.

The first-ever production car of the British car brand McLaren Automotive managed to make its way to the fleet of performance cop cars of the Dubai Police Force. More often than not, tourists will turn their heads when they hear the sound of the McLaren 12C’s 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine. The engine is capable of generating 592 hp and 600 Nm of torque.

If police cars are starting to be powered by a plug-in hybrid powertrain, then you know that the future is now. The Dubai Police Force boasts its 2-door BMW i8 with police personnel coming off the sports car’s butterfly doors. Talk about patrolling in style.

The BMW i8 is one of the most fuel-efficient sports cars in the Dubai Police Force’s fleet of performance vehicles. Powering the BMW i8 is a 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-3 engine with two electric motors which overall produce 369 hp and 570 Nm of torque.
The Nissan GT-R was inducted into the Dubai Police Force fleet in 2013 alongside the Audi R8. Since the Nissan GT-R is one of the most loved sports cars in the world, tourists will surely have a good time wandering around the streets of Dubai. The Dubai Nissan GT-R cop car keeps Dubai safe and in order with its 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine good for 560 hp.
The Godzilla of the automotive scene
The Chevrolet Camaro is one of the relatively most affordable cop cars of the Dubai Police Force with a starting price of $25,000 (around Php 1.2 million using direct currency conversion) in the U.S. market.

The Dubai Police Force hasn’t integrated a Tesla Cybertruck into its fleet yet as the production version of the said SUV is expected to arrive late this year. However, the Dubai Police Force posted on its official social media accounts what would the Tesla Cybertruck look like as a Dubai cop car.

Once the Tesla Cybertruck makes its way into the Dubai Force Police, it will provide versatility and variety to its overall fleet. It will also be the first Tesla model that will be used by the Dubai Force Police to promote peace and tourism in the city.
The Lamborghini Aventador is a fan favorite among tourists in Dubai simply because of the super car’s exotic look and roaring V12 engine. Violators should not think twice when pulled over by a Dubai Lamborghini Aventador cop car as it can run from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds.
The Lamborghini Aventador is the fastest Lamborghini to date
With that being said, the Lamborghini Aventador is one of the fastest cop cars in the Dubai Police Force fleet. However, the Aventador is not an ideal vehicle to use when arresting a violator considering it only has space for two police personnel and its large engine.
Right after the Lamborghini Aventador was introduced by Dubai Police Force, the Ferrari FF came in. The Ferrari FF is the only Ferrari model in the Dubai Police Force fleet. It is a 4-seater grand tourer first introduced in 2011. Powering the Ferrari FF is a 6.3-liter V12 engine that can go from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds. Police personnel report that some people wish to be arrested to experience riding in a Ferrari.
